What Is This Houseplant?

What Is This Houseplant? - heart shaped leaf houseplantWe bought this house plant from Ikea about 18 months ago. Since then it has grown from about 10 cm to 30 cm. We have no idea what it is and searching Google keeps bringing up the Chinese money plant, however the flowers on this don't fit? Any help would be much appreciated.
