I går flyttet vi... / Yesterday we moved...

...til et uferdig hus. Det er fullstendig kaos, 1. etg er helt uferdig, 2. etg er ikke badet ferdig.. Huset er rett og slett ubeboelig. Men alle tingene måtte inn, så vi har plassert omtrent alle møblene i kjelleren (og der er det tettpakket) og noe i soverommene i 2.etg.. Vi har flyttet inn til min mor inntil videre. Håper å få flyttet inn på ordentlig innen neste søndag :)

...to an unfinished house. It's a total chaos, the first floor is no where near finished, and the second floor bathroom isn't finished either. But we had to move inn all our furniture, so we put everything in the basement (and some in the second floor bedrooms). My little famliy and I have moved in to my Mothers place for now. Hopefully we'll be able to move into our house next Sunday. (fingers crossed!)

Byggeoppdatering 2 / Building update 2 - bedrooms

Da har jeg fått tatt bilder av soverommene også. Begynner å se bra ut! :)

De første bildene er fra vårt soverom med tapeten i taket. Er utrolig fornøyd med effekten, men lurer på om jeg burde male over fargen på veggen i en litt lysere sjattering? (for min Skandinaviske Boudoir-look)
So this is what the bedrooms are looking like at the moment! It's starting to look better!

These first pictures are of the master bedroom with the wallpapered ceiling. I'm very happy with the look. I do wonder if the walls should be in a lighter shade though? (for my Scandinavian boudoir look)






Dette er ekstrasoverommet, som vi vil bruke som garderobe inntil videre. Tok bilde av døren, siden jeg synes listverket ser så utrolig bra ut herfra :)

This is the spare bedroom that we will use as a walk in closet until we get another baby. I love the moldings here :)


Dette er soverommet til datteren vår, Indie.

This is our 8 month old daughter, Indie's bedroom.

Byggeoppdatering / Building update 1 - bathroom

Nå begynner flisene å komme på plass! ELSKER de! Det kommer virkelig til å bli helt fantastisk, og like bra som jeg håpet :)

The tiles are being laid as we speak! I LOVE them! It really is going to look amazing! You can see pictures of the progress below:

Stuen / the Living Room

Håndtverkerne begynner snart på finisharbeidet i stuen. Det vil være en panel /brystning som ligner på bildet nedenfor.


The carpenters are about to start the finish work on the living room. There will be a chair rail molding similar to the one pictured below.


Tapeten over brystningen kommer fra Laura Ashley og heter Oriental Garden. Jeg har valgt en som er gullbeige med hvitt mønster. Har lagt ved en sort/hvitt versjon, der er mønsteret tydeligere.


The wallpaper over the chair rail modling is from Laura Ashley and is called Oriental Garden. I've chosen it in a golden beige / white pattern. I've also added a pic of the wallpaper in charchoal/white because it shows off the pattern better.



Tak- og gulvlistene samt geriktene (dørkarmene) ser du nedenfor. Alt kommer fra Orac.


The crown moldings and skirting board is as you see below.


Here you see door surrounding kit, which I think is beautiful.



All of the moldings are delivered by Orac.

Jeg har fått meg en Murano-lampe! / I just bought myself a Murano lamp!

I går kveld "vant" jeg denne lampen på ebay. Den skal henge i hallen nede med tapeten fra K.Wearsler i bakgrunnen.

Last night I "won" this Murano lamp on ebay. Yay! I'm planning on hanging it i the hall with the K.Wearstler wallpaper in the background.

Baderom til inspirasjon / inspiring bathrooms

Nå er jo mitt bad under bygging, og vil være klart i løpet av uken (håper jeg). Her er noen av bildene jeg har brukt som inspirasjon (de fleste ser veldig annerledes ut enn det vi har endt opp med).

My bathroom is under construction and all decisions have been made. However I would love to share some of my inspiration:






All the bathrooms above are by Canadian interior designer Sarah Richardson. LOVE her work! I did originally want a dark, wood vanity like the ones above, but the boyfriend nixed it...

Hollywood Regency - stor inspirasjonskilde! (great source of inspiration!)

Regency-stilen fra 30-tallets Hollywood er en stor inspirasjonskilde for meg. Stilen kjennetegnes av glitz og glam og lakkerte møbler i fantastiske farger. Belysning var også viktig i denne perioden. Kjente designere var blant annet William Haines og Dorothy Draper. I dag tolkes stilen av blant annet av Kelly Wearstler og Jonathan Adler (også kjent som dommere på Top Design)
tolker stilen i dag.
The Hollywood Regency style from the 1930s is a huge source of inspiration for me. Among the styles trademarks are glitz and glam, lacquered furniture and insane lighting. Known period designers are William Haines and Dorothy Draper. Kelly Wearstler and Jonathan Adler (also known from Top design) has great modern interpretations of the style.

Belysning / lighting

Jeg er litt forvirret når det kommer til belysning. Utvalget her i Norge er ekstremt dårlig og omtrent alt er enten minimalistisk eller shabby chic. Jeg har funnet mange gode alternativer fra USA, men da blir det veldig dyrt med å skifte ut innmaten i alle sammen...



Den største utfordringen har vist seg å være hallen oppe og nede. Jeg har tapeten fra Kelly Wearstler som går som en søyle i bakgrunnen og vil ikke ha en lampe som tar for mye oppmerksomhet, er for enkel, for moderne eller for gammeldags..

Jeg liker veldig godt denne lampen fra Juliska, men har også vurdert en helt enkel lampeskjerm i en passende farge. Er åpen for inspirasjon og tips!

I have to admit that I'm confused when it comes to lighting. The selection her in Norway is extremely poor and you can't find anything that's not shabby chic or minimalist. I have found a lot of good alternatives from the states but it would get rather expensive to change the wiring, import and ship all the lamps.



My biggest challenge turns out to be the upstairs landing and the hall downstairs. The Kelly Wearstler wallpaper is in the background, and I don't want a lamp that takes too much attention, is top simple, to modern og too old fashioned... (so needless to say, I'm in a rut..)

I really like the lamp below from Juliska, but I've also considered a wide regular lamp shade or a lantern.. I am open to tips and inspirational links!!!

Liker også type stormlykt på bildet nedenfor fra cottageliving.com, men vil muligens heller ha i krom? (tapeten på bildet til venstre)


Oppdatering baderom

Da har vi kommet litt lenger med baderommet og har kjøpt inn omtrent alt. Stilen blir helt klart fusion, som jeg har nevnt tidligere, med interiør som har marokkansk opphav, art deco, industrial, klassisk country osv.

Veggflisene er ganske generiske og hvite. De er lagt, og gulvet vil bli lagt i dag.

Blandebatterier og dusj er Damixa kjøpt fra www.topvvs.dk, baderomsmøbel fra www.sigro.se, speilet kommer fra www.LauraAshley.com, lampen til å ha over speilet kommer fra www.Les-campagnoles.dk og fliser fra www.marrakechdesign.se.


We have come a little further with the bathroom interior. The style is definitly a fusion, with nods to Moroccan style, art deco, classical country and a little bit industrial.
