Style Makeover: Summer White

Timeless and forever on-trend, decorating with white is all about creating a crisp, fresh look to infuse your living space with serenity. Here are 3 simple white covers/slipcovers to instantly transform your IKEA sofa (with Ektorp cast in the starring role!) into a summer classic.


The Scandinavian passion for extra-long summer days spent in the countryside often translates into bright spaces, white interiors and a romantic look. This style is a snap to achieve with a Bemz Loose Fit Country cover in pure linen. Easy to slip on and off, Loose Fit linen - which only gets softer and better with each wash - has a skirt that rests on the floor for an elegantly relaxed cottage look. To this neutral base simply add cushion covers in a range of pastels (such as this season’s coveted yellow/pink trend) to nail that romantically rustic country look.



Here’s another take on the country look above - still using relaxed, Loose Fit Country covers in pure stonewashed linen - with stripes taking center stage. If summer style means one thing in Scandinavia, it’s stripes. The key to getting this look right is to start with a white and grey neutral base then mix in stripes from that same colour palette. Top tip: use stripes of different widths for better visual interest.



Natural simplicity at its very best! This nautical colour combination is a popular summer duo the world over for a reason: white and blue evoke a sense of sea and sky. How to improve upon a naturally elegant colour scheme? Cover your sofa in a fabric made of 100% recycled material, such as Brunna Melange from our Respect collection and get back to nature in the most stylish way possible.
