There have been numerous conversations about some fancy touches to make the place nicer, and they tend to come down to doing an Ikea trip at some point, so it makes sense to have a place to keep track of anything we might want to get from there. Please add any ideas to the list - if possible with the right name or even a URL

Is there a reason those toilet roll holders are better than the ones we have? Not an antagonistic question, by the way, just making sure we're not doubling up on stuff we already have.

Is there a reason why we're not sourcing wall art from within the community? Are there any particular walls that we'd like adorning?

That sounds a great plan @amcewen. I like the places where they have art by local artists up, and especially when you can buy the art to support them. Perhaps with a commission to support DoES?

No problem with that at all, and I'd actually prefer it - I had a discussion with... someone, at some point, about finding out if we could make DoES almost like a gallery, with rotating art works by local artists every three months or so, similar to how some cafes do.

The Ikea art discussion had come about as @johnmckerrell was talking about some brilliant MASSIVE posters they do which might be suitable for the big white wall in Room 29, something like a huge world map or similar.

It makes more sense as a specific "maybe we should get X for space Y" rather than a general "buy some wall art".

In issue #650, I've just noticed, @johnmckerrell did mention getting http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/products/decoration/frames-pictures/bj%C3%B6rksta-picture-planet-earth-art-80329121/ (although looking at that, it'll only cover about a third of the width of the big white wall in Room 29, so is it big enough?)

@jackie1050 no rush but there's three specific items in the shopping list if you'd like to pop into Ikea sometime.
