    Hey I'm trying to fit a ikea kiddies light (skodig) in my boys room.

    The 2 wires coming down from the ceiling are black and red but the fitting has blue and white would be grateful if you could advise how to connect them up.

    Thanks IMG_20170127_205405.jpg IMG_20170127_205315.jpg

    I would put the red sleeved black in the white and the two blacks in the blue

    I'd also make sure the 3 reds are properly connected together in a separate connector, the same with the 3 earth wires in another separate connector.

    I'd report Ikea to Trading Standards.
