BEDROOM INSPIRATION...

January 18, 2017




It's no lie that I'm very much inspired by Malene Birger's amazing home decor style. I love that Nordic, African and French combo, where modern pieces and pieces from the 60's and 70's are mixed with ethnic finds.

I'm doing our small bedroom - I'm still not done with the living room, but decorating takes time if you want it to be special, so I'm moving on to the bedroom, until I find the rest of the furniture from the living room...

We are sharing the bedroom with Adam and it's kind of small, so he'll have a little corner in the room with an old French iron bed that I found with a canopy over it and some ethnic touches in white, cream and black. Both our dresser and closet are old pieces that I found and painted white. Seriously, you can find so many amazing pieces - so far all our furniture are actually pieces I found on markets or preloved online and we're super happy with them. So even though you are on a budget you can decorate your home in style, maybe even better than if you go to the store and buy everything from new...

I'm still looking for an old Moroccan table as a bedside table like in the picture above and a rug -either Moroccan or an old Turkish hemp...oh and curtains...can't seem to make up my mind about those. Should they be white, bamboo or maybe black...Other than that I need all the stuff for decorating: pillows, a handira, blankets and pictures...Can't wait to finish this room.

SHEEPSKIN SLIPPERS...

January 14, 2017




These super comfy UGG SLIPPERS came in the door yesterday and they've been glued to my feet, since I opened the box. I've never liked wearing indoor shoes, but these are just incredible soft and so easy to slide into, when I come in the door.

Our new flat has quite cold floors, especially in the kitchen and the hallway, so I really needed a pair of shoes to wear during the cold months. I found them at Ellos - I love that you can find so many nice things there.

I'm also looking for curtains and there's 20% off all curtains until Sunday. I bought 11 meters of dark grey velvet fabric,  but now changed my mind and want light curtains. Didn't think choosing curtains would be that difficult. Luckily we only need curtains in the bedroom for now...

My cousin had a little boy recently and asked me if I could put together a list of wishes for him, since we have similar taste. A lot of these pieces are also wishes I have for Adam or things that we have already and love, like the Grampa Paris pieces, the SarahandBendrix magnetic animals and the Mason Pearson brush.

You can see I love Numero74. I'm about to order some Numero74 products myself for Adam at Smallable, but still not sure if I should choose a black or a cream canopy. Having too much black could maybe be too much...

I love the ethnic touch that the Beni Ourain rug adds to a space and paired with the pillow and wool blanket from Birger1962 it's just what I want for Adam's area in our bedroom.
I also really love the clothing rack and it's actually on sale at LirumLarumLeg.

A new favourite clothing brand is 1+ in the family - if we have another child at some point he/she will definitely be dressed in their super cute pieces. Absolutely love everything.

FIRST LOOK AT OUR NEW HOME...

January 11, 2017

We finally found a home and it all went really quick - within a week, we'd signed the papers, got the keys and packed and moved in the same day the 23rd of December and left for holiday the 24th.

We're basically starting from scratch, since we almost didn't have any furniture. You'd think it would be easy to start decorating, but it really isn't and I already made some purchases that I regret...

I went from thinking I'd do dark colours, but my husband really disagreed. Now that I've had time to think of it we're going with a palette of black, white, natural and brown and a mix of old, new and ethnic. The style I always seem to return to and that I feel makes me want to be creative.

I do not like pieces that you can find everywhere and in fact all these furniture we have so far, I've found preloved. Now looking for Turkish kelims for under the dining room table and for the kitchen. Will keep you updated with the progress and show you the rest of the home, when we're more settled.
