What to do?? Am at a friends house right now and thought I should sneak in an update... Will post pics as soon as I'm able to...
Blant annet var det ikke nok av Imperial Trellis-tapeten til Kelly Wearstler :( Det var hele 4 ruller for lite! Så nye ruller er bestilt, og er forhåpentligvis snart på vei fra USA... Kjedelig at vi må sette opp de siste lengdene selv, det er utrolig viktig at tapeten blir lagt perfekt.
Murano-lampen er oppe! Å, den ser bare så nydelig ut. Den lager et helt fantastisk mønster på veggen, og den gir nok lys. Laura Ashley-lampen i stuen er også nydelig, jeg må kjøpe nye pærer til den, de vi hadde for hånden passer ikke. Ellers har vi hengt opp Capiz-shell-lampen på soverommet vårt, og den er jeg også kjempefornøyd med. Er rett og slett en skikkelig lampe-jente, det er det desidert morsomste å jakte på... Har en utrolig kul lampe i kikkerten til gangen oppe, vi får se om jeg får slått kloa i den...
Dette blir det første innlegget mitt uten bilder... Kommer til å være uten internett de neste dagene, men håper på å være oppe å gå igjen onsdag ettermiddag. Og da kommer det bilder i bøtter og spann :)
Finally... We're moving in tomorrow! The carpenters finished on Sunday, and today we had our cleaning ladies cleaning out the house. Man, did they do a great job! I'm really impressed with what they've accomplished. I will take pictures of everything tomorrow, but won't be able to post anything until Wednesday Evening og Thursday morning (our internet and cable will be installed on Wednesday).
We have had a few mishaps along the way.. We're missing four (!) single rolls of The Imperial Trellis wallpaper by Kelly Wearstler. They will hopefully be on their way from the US next week. It does suck that we have to put up the rest oursevles, it's extremely important that it looks immaculate...
The Murano lamp is up! It's just stunning! It makes this amazing pattern on the surrounding walls. The Laura Ashley chandelier is also beautiful, but we need new and better light bulbs. Will get that tomorrow. The golden capiz shell lamp in our bedroom is stunning, although not a great source for light. I guess I'm a lamp girl, I love the hunt! I have an awesome lamp in mind for our upstairs landing, hopefully it will be mine within the next few days.
So this is my first post without pictures! Will be without an internet connection the next few days, but will hopefully have a picture-filled post ready by Thursday!
I wish you all an excellent week! :D :D
... With this lantern. The shape combined with the geometric pattern is just amazing. The price isn't too bad either... ;) It would have been perfect in our hall, if the ceilings were a little higher. It would've brushed my boyfriends shoulder... LOL!
I've been on a resultless hunt for fabric for my new favorite chairs... :) I want a geometric or possibly Moroccon (Moorish) pattern. But I am as usual having a hard time finding what I want. And I know what I want!

Modello Design har et enormt utvalg i mønstre man kan bruke på forskjellige ting (ikke stoffer så vidt jeg vet...?) og skulle gjerne hatt et kurs i hvordan man bruker metodene deres. Har sett de lage utrolig kule mønstre i tak. Noen eksempler på hva de gjør kan du se i denne og denne bloggen. Blir utrolig inspirert! Drømmemønsteret ville nok vært det du ser på bildet nedenfor.
Her kan du se flere av mønstrene til Modello. Jeg får bare helt gåsehud av noen av mønstrene de har! Helt fantastisk!
Modello Design has a huge selection of patterns that you can use for different things (mainly as stencils for walls and ceilings as far as I can tell...) and I would LOVE to take a course in houw to use their techniques. I've seen they create amazing ceiling art. You can see examples of their work in this and this blog. It's just SO inspiring! My dream pattern for my chairs would probably be something like the picture below.
You can see more of Modellos patterns here. Some of them just give me goosebumps! Beautiful!

And it's even more beautiful than I imagined... The details are just stunning, and I love the "worn" look it has with a little rust here and there. I have to have it rewired, and hopefully I'll be able to deliver it to the shop today. :)
På bildet nedenfor ser du hvor den skal henge (hullet i taket). Den bakerste veggen i trappen vil ha Imperial Trellis-tapeten fra Kelly Wearstler og veggene er malt i samme blåfarge som du ser på tapeten.
Today we stopped by the house again, and if I'm going to keep bloggin', it's crystal clear that I have to get better at taking pictures! Everything just looks so much better in real life (and there's nothing wrong with my camera). So I guess Photographer is something I can remove from my list of "things to be when I grow up"... But in my excuse, dust, mess from the carpenters and w(t?)rapped furniture isn't exactly eye candy either... I have been talking about our moving in date several times, and the carpenters keep moving it. My expectations of moving in have been equally high every time, this being no exeption. So the new date is Sunday, and I really belive we will move in ON Sunday! YAY!
Detail picture of the floor moldings. I think they have an art deco vibe to them. Love the detailing :)
This is tiles being laid in the hall
Another view into the living room and dining room. I really like the molding around the door frame :)
I'm looking for a mirror like the one below. Any ideas on where I could find something similar?
I går fant jeg ut at hun har en blogg! Og en nettbutikk på etsy! Og hun shipper til Norge!
The right hand picture here, is what inspired me to want to paint my black chinese cabinet duck egg blue. I think it looks stunning :)

Jeg kommer til å male disse i en annen farge siden jeg ikke er noe glad i sort. Nedenfor ser du litt inspirasjon :)
