Oversized Inspiration! / Gigantisk inspirasjon!

Jeg kom akkurat over dette bildet på jillcrawford.com. Elsker symmetrien, det gigantiske mønsteret på den spesiallagde tapeten (av jillcrawford.com), og de typiske Hollywood Regency gjenstandene. Store mønstre som dette brukes vanligvis på større rom med høyere takhøyde, men jeg synes absolutt at dette var et eksempel på at det også fungerer i mindre rom. Fargepalettet er også fresht og de blå puffene står i herlig kontrast til resten av interiøret.

I just came across this image on jillcrawford.com. I'm loving the symmetry of the decor, the surprising oversized pattern on the custom wallpaper (by jillcrawford.com of course) and the stools. Big patterns like this are usually used in larger rooms with higher ceilings, but I think this is really successfull. The Hollywood Regency elements are also right up my alley ;)

To Do List SS09 / To Do liste SS09

Jeg er på vei tilbake i interiørmodus, og inspirasjonen og ideene er på vei tilbake i full fart. Prosjektlisten er oppdatert, og jeg håper vi får gjort alt i løpet av juli måned.

So I'm back in redecoration mode, and I'm feeling the inspiration and creativity back in my veins :). The project list has been updated, and I'm hoping to finish ALL of this in July.

1. Get dining room table painted (I'm hopefully delivering it to the "painting people" next week, and the job will take about two weeks). Click here to see what it looks like now.

2. Decorate the walls in the living room! (I know what I want, I just need to find out where to get it.

3. Credenza no 2 is in house! Now, I've started the process of fixing it up. Which has proven to be time consuming, the carvings are pretty detailed, so the prep work is more difficult than it was with the previous one. Click here to see what it ended up looking like. This one will look exactly the same.

4. Get "stuff" to personalize and decorate the space (living room)

5. Get my hands on a sunburst mirror!!!!! YAY!!! (Click here to see my post on sunburst mirrors)

6. Fix the hall, get a new wardrobe

7. Get organized, improve utilization of space, make better solutions (I know, this is a big one...)

8. Fix Indie's (our daughter) bedroom. It's nearly done, just some minor details left.

9. Feel annoyed over the status of the kitchen and the fact that we're not tearing it out until next year

10. The garden is almost finished, and Mr B has been working his a** off! It going to be beautiful! I'm not going to add his to do list here, because the post would end up being too long. ;) He'll probably finish everything in a couple of weeks.

Oh, last but not least... Guess what?? IT'S ANOTHER GIRL!! YAY!!

Some news... We're expecting baby no 2 and are getting married!

So I know I've been MIA for quite some time. The thing is, I've been completely exhausted due to the fact that we're having a NEW BABY!!! :) We're super excited and I'm due in the middle of November. 

In addition to that mr B PROPOSED to me last week, and of course, I accepted :)

We spent a week in beautiful Skiathos in the middle of May, and it was absolutely stunning. Both the architecture and the fantastic 60 beaches. 

I'm planning on taking a break from blogging this summer, and will hopefully be back, stronger than ever this fall. Thanks for still following Beautiful Living :)
