The hall – after and after

I’m totally bummed because I can’t find a before-picture of this room -  it was totally horrible!

Everything is new here, the walls, ceiling and flooring. As you know, I’m a HUGE fan of black/white flooring, and we opted for a more classical version here. We used the same tiles as is the laundry room, and they’re dirt cheap. :)

I’ve been wondering what to do with the fuse box for quite some time, and about a week ago I realized that I HAD to paint it with chalk paint! It’s actually the perfect location for a chalk board, right before you leave the house! Sorry about the corny “what’s up”, I know bloggers tend to write the chic’est and most awesome little things on their boards. I suck at those things, so I went for something obviously lame.

I’m still pondering on what to do with the chinoserie table. My guests seem to love it as is, while I’m into a more polished look. I was thinking matte black? What do you think?

Look at the mini version of Judith – SO beautiful, isn’t she?? Eva Solo hooked me up with the stunning leaf tray and it’s perfect for keys, coins and cash :)

Have a fabulous Monday, and check back in tonight, when we’ll announce the lucky Dyrberg / Kern winner!

this entryway looks totally fab! love the chalkboard and think the table looks pretty nice as it is (the turquoise is the perfect popping color in a black & white space!), although a black matte will look very chic!

Urbanstems said...

Leave it as is for the moment - the turquoise is beautiful...you can paint it if you tire of it. The chalkboard is a great idea. Loving your work..

avant garde said...

holy smokes, this came out simply amazing. and your idea for the fuse box, genius!!!

Bailey@ peppermintbliss said...

I am actually laughing out loud at your "What's up!" but this is a phenomenal idea and now I have SOMETHING to do with our giant fusebox that rudely nestled itself into our pantry!

La Dolfina said...

I adore that chinoiserie table. I agree with you guests, please don't paint it... it's so perfect as it is, but again you have to be happy. Thanks for sharing. Painting the fuse box with chalkboard paint was brilliant.

FruFly★Heidi said...

Knallfin gang!! Jeg tror jeg er enig med deg og synes matt svart høres veldig fint ut! Ha en fin uke:) - Heidi

Mariska Meijers said...

You have posted that table before and i love it! Have a great week Dagny xox

Milk and Honey Home said...

Oh, do keep it the same color! That is my favorite part of the room...that deep sea blue-green paint.

thelennoxx said...

What's up? LOL! Kudos to you for painting the fuse box in chalkboard paint, I would have never thought of it!

About your side table, If it was mine, I'd try and restore it to the original (?) turquoise color.

adorable. i love it :)

The chalkboard paint was genius! I love (and have admired it each time you've shown it), the table as is - it's fantastic! If you have to paint it, I think glossy and color.


Dagny @ Scandinavian Chic said...

Ludmila - Thank you!! :)

Urbanstems - I think I'll actually do just that... I'm kind of liking it the way it is right now :) And I'm so happy to hear that you like my work, stay tuned - there's definitely more to come!!

avantgarde - Hehe, I felt pretty genious when painting it! And it looks chic instead of like shit!

Bailey - lol!! And what's your fuse box doing in the pantry???

La Dolfina - Thank you so much for visiting! And the table will stay as is for now... It's not safe though, I may change my mind :)

Heidi - Ja, ikke sant?? Får la turkisfargen modne litt og se hva jeg synes om noen uker...

Mariska - thank you!!

Milk and Honey - It's kind of relaxing, isn't it? But I'm so not loving how chipped the paint is!

lennoxx - I know I know, I have seriously NO imagination when it comes to these things!!

ashlina - :)

kerry - Hi! Thank you so much for commenting, I think this is your first, isn't it?? The table is pretty special, I'm so curious of what it was originally made for!

Måtte scrolle opp og se på bildene en gang til da jeg slettes ikke la merke til sikringskapet ved første øyekast. Genialt!

La Boheme said...

Can't wait to see more of your work! You did great! I think you can go either way with the table, as La Dolfina said - it has to make you happy! xoxo

Dagny @ Scandinavian Chic said...

map79 - det var akkurat den effekten jeg ønsket!! :D

la boheme - I'm having lots of fun with everything, and hope you guys will like what I have up my sleeve :)

Ewelina said...

Gulvet er virkelig fantastisk! Selv elsker jeg også den slags kontraster!

i'm here visiting from chinoiserie chic. i love your laundry room and you have totally inspired me to glam mine up too. i too love black and white flooring and have used it in my kitchen and small bathrooms.

nice meeting you,


Dagny @ Scandinavian Chic said...

Hi Janet!! I'm so excited that I've inspired you!! You have to send us a pic when you've glammed up your laundry room!!

Debbie said...

This looks wonderful. I like the color of the table the way it is. Looks nice with the black and white.

Vanessa@decor happy said...

I love the colour of the table but you have to love the chippy paint look. Glossy black would look great too. I know I'm no help at all.
