As you know, I have some furniture waiting to be upholstered. There's my six dining chairs, the swedish chair, a chaiselounge (not pictured), seating cushions for the bamboo chairs (two of them will be painted egg duck blue and one chinese red), and maybe some cushions for the couch (which is white).
To see my color palette, click here.
These are from Lee Industries. I already have swatches, and I'm considering the coral one for the bamboo chairs. Nothing has been decided though, with the HUGE selection from interiormall.com (below).
The fabrics above are from interiormall.com. My next step is to order som swatches, but I'm having problems deciding which ones to order? Which ones do you like the most?
To see what others are hooked on this Friday, visit Hooked on Houses!
Her kan du se noen av stolene mine...
Here are some of the chairs in my collection...
I have two of these. One is going in the nursery after it gets a paint job and reupholstering, the other one I have no idea where to put.

These blue chairs would have looked great in my home. So cozy, would have loved to sit in one of them and read my favorite magazine...

The colors here are just divine! I want it all! Three amazing chairs in one room! And I'm still gushing about the colors...

These chairs from ebay.com are cute :)
And this daybed is just perfect.

Love the rocking chair to the right. My life would be very good with an office like this :)

Hvorfor faller jeg alltid for stoler som trenger litt TLC? Det er ikke akkurat slik at jeg har haugevis med tid til overs?? Å sette opp to-do-listen min her hjelper meg til å fokusere på målene mine og jobbe målrettet. Men jeg ser at tidsfristene mine blir flyttet fremover. Familien kommer først :)
Mr B took me to Son Spa for my 29th birthday. This is the first night we've spent away from our ten month (!) old daughter. We were at the opening party of this hotel before Christmas (regrettably, I didn't bring my camera that time, so I made sure to take lots of pics this time) We've been planning to come back, the opening party was a success.
The reception area. Minimalist design with a digital aquarium with fishes swimming from TV screen to TV screen.
Our room. The rooms have two different designs, spa or marine. We have a spa room. I like the lamps on the night stands and the color palette is nice and soothing. On the right hand side there's a reading nook maybe? Or just somewhere to relax. It's kinda cute, but the artwork could be better.
The bathroom is simple with a neutral color palette. The fixtures / taps were cheap and I expected more from a Spa Hotel.
Jeg liker sømmen på gardinene. "Klokken" på bildet til høyre er faktisk romnøkkelen som er vantett og kan brukes i bassenget. Perfekt for et spahotell!
I liked how the curtains were pleated. The "watch" on the right is actually the room key which was kinda cool AND waterproof. Perfect for a Spa hotel.
Utsikten fra rommet var nydelig. Kanskje enda nydeligere når det er fullt av båter om sommeren :)
The view from the room is beautiful.
Dette er spa-resepsjonen. Digger det. Gyngestolene er fantastiske, dagsengen i bakgrunnen og belysningen. Bak til høyre finner du et kjøkken for kurs du kan ta mens du bor på hotellet :)
The reception area for the Spa. Love it. The rocking chairs were fantastic, the daybed in the background and the lighting. Behind the reception is a kitchen were you can take cooking classes while staying at the hotel.
Resepsjonsområdene / loungen byr på det beste interiøret på hotellet. Avslappet, chic og et nøytralt fargepalett med litt oppfriskende innslag av rødt.
The reception areas and the lounge has the best decor in the Hotel. Relaxed, chic and with a neutral color palette with refreshing dashes of red.
Dette lille området er også flott. De kinesiske hagestolene og de lakkerte trekubbene gir et spennende uttrykk.
This little area is also very nice. The chinese stools and the lacquered wood stools look really great.
Jeg ELSKER lampen med tre føtter. Det er to stykker, og de er virkelig en fantastisk del av interiøret.
Dette er loungeområdet foran resepsjonen.
The lounge area in front of the main reception.
Jeg hadde ikke lyst til å ta med meg kameraet til spa avdelingen, så disse bildene kommer fra Son Spa sine hjemmesider. Det grønne rommet er helt fantastisk, mens "isbøtta" til høyre var mildt sagt forfriskende (eller forskrekkende?) Mr B utfordret meg til å prøve, så da hadde jeg ikke noe valg, hehe ;)
I didn't want to bring my camera to the spa area so these pictures are from the hotel site. The green room on the bottom left is just beautiful and the "bucket of ice" that you see on the right hand side was refreshing (to put it mildly). Mr B challenged me to try it, so how could I not do it?
Alt i alt kan jeg si at vi hadde en veldig fin overnatting. Spa-avdelingen er nok det som imponerte mest. Restauranten var både og. Vi bestilte lammefrikkase til hovedrett og der var alt perfekt, bortsett fra sausen som smakte buljong. De andre rettene og frokosten dagen etter var heldigvis nydelige. Frokostbuffeten hadde en økologisk profil, som jeg synes er positivt. Skal ikke se bort ifra at vi kommer tilbake hit ;) Og vår lille snuppelure oppførte seg eksemplarisk med farmor og farfar som var barnevakt.
All in all we had a great experience. The spa department impressed the most (thank god). The restaurant had a poorly made sauce for the main course, but the rest of what we ate was excellent. The breakfast buffet had an ecological profile, which is great. We will probably return to this spa hotel :) Our little sunshine behaved like a star with her grandparents as well, so things couldn't have gone any better :)
Yesterday I turned 29! I'va had an amazing weekend, and there's three of my gifts I'd like to tell you about.
1. Mr B tok meg med på Son Spa! (mer om dette kommer i eget innlegg i morgen, med vurdering av interiøret på hotellet og bilder)
Mr B took me to Son Spa! (more about this in a post tomorrow with lots of pictures of the decor)
2. Denne bunken med bøker fikk jeg av min mor og hennes mann! Fikk også en bok om mønstre fra islam som jeg gleder meg til å få (den var bestillingsvare, og litt forsinket)
This stack of books given to me by my mother and her husbond. I also got a book about islamic patterns that I'm really excited about, it was delayed (being shipped from the US)
3. Sist, men ikke minst... Jeg har fått kamerastativ! Wohoo! Et skritt i riktig retning mot å bli proffotograf (hehe)
Last but not least... I got a tripod from my father and grandparents! Wohoo! Finally! Hopefully this will improve my skills as a photographer (lol)
Planene mine er på dette stadiet som følger:
Kjøkkenbase fra IKEA, med egenproduserte dører. Dørene vil ligne de du ser på bildet nedenfor til venstre, men med en annen "grill". Vil bruke mønsteret Herringbone, Filigree, Moroccon eller Tunis i stedet. Grillen på skapdørene er laget av det samme materialet som man har på radiatorskjulere - MDF. For å se et større utvalg av mønstre i dette materialet, klikk her.
A new kitchen is not anywhere in near future, but I'm planning it anyways. :) You can't start too early, can you?
So what I know on this stage, is that I'll get the Factum base from IKEA. The cabinet doors will be custom made, and will look like the ones you see on the picture below but with a different "grill" and definitly different knobs. I have not decided on the pattern yet, but I'm swaying between Herringbone, Filigree, Moroccon and Tunis. The grill on the cabinet doors are made of the same material as you use on radiator covers, MDF. To see the whole selection of patterns available, click here.
I'm a sucker for non white ceilings and will use every opportunity to avoid it. This wallpaper from Cole & Son is just amazing, and I just know that it'll give the room that extra oomph (with that insane price tag, it better!)
The flooring is Walnut parquet.
I couldn't stop at one. I suprisingly found another Murano from the same collection.. This is for the landing/hall upstairs.

Her home is light and airy with lots of white, oak and a little drift wood here and there. It's all about the details and good storage solutions.
Even though our styles are so different I get lots of inspiration and tips from Nettan. She is amazing at table settings and I really love so many of her storage solutions.
Let's start with the exterior. I just love the front gate. This picture is from Christmas and I think it's beautiful :) The wreaths give a perfect finish.
I think this little stool is from IKEA. It's a great find and actually of great quality. Love the radiator cover. You'll find several of these throughout the house and they're beautifully made. The walls are wood panel and goes great with the look of the kitchen.
These steel bar stools adds a little industrial chic to the room. Nettan added some faux lambswool to prevent cold bums.. Love it!
Nettan's dining room is just so inviting. I would love to be one of the guests! She is great at table settings, and regularly posts pictures from her preparation to dinner parties.
Norm69 is a pleasant surprise in the living room. Like the rest of the house it has a neutral color palette.
Love how she added extra interest to the Christmas tree with lambswool and faux snowballs. The room looks crisp and beautiful. The oak pieces have a great impact on the room.
A little reading nook.
Closeup og Norm69 and the fireplace. The mantle is dressed beautifully.
This is Nettan's main bathroom. The color palette is black and white with splashes of steel.
The rainforest shower head from Damixa is beautiful and LOVE how the toilet paper is stored!
I really love this cabinet and am looking for something similar for our bathroom. On the right hand picture you can see the new shutters!
I love the vignette on these drawers. There's two of them pulled together and they're actually from IKEA. The wreath is just beautiful.
Behind the bed is Nettan's walk-in-closet. I'm feeling slightly jealous of that one!
Here you can see the little stove, and the tutu lamp on the right is the ceiling light of the bedroom.
Here you can se the WC of the first floor. I'm usually not a fan of black, but I really like the feel of this room. The tray is perfectly styled.
