This blog was started well over four years ago, when we bought this house. We intended to stay her much longer, but sometimes, you can't control everything. In august, we lost my grandfather, and as a direct consequence, we decided to buy his home, which was where my mother grew up, and I've spent countless days the past 32 years. It feels super strange to be leaving this house, our first total renovation project, which was completely finished about two weeks ago (!). At the same time, I'm very very excited to start the renovation of a house that means so much to me.

I was interviewed by USBL today about how to implement colors into your home, and they asked me what my favorite room in the house was...
My answer: Our bedroom, the livingroom, the kitchen the laundry room, the hall... I actually LOVE every single room!
The bedroom has a pale and cool pink, called Kirsebærblomst FR1113. The fabric on the headboard is Bengale Tiger by Manuel Canovas, and the geometric bed spread is from Casamance (both available from Fargerike)
The laundry room has a wallpaper called Palais Chinois from Osborne&Little, furniture from IKEA and flooring by Megaflis.
The kitchen is from Danish Kvik, the pulls (handles) are by B&B Sweden. I chose marble tiles which I absolutely LOVE.
The kitchen nook is our favorite hangout (image from the sales ad)
The famous Hummingbird wallpaper from Cole&Son can be ordered from Fargerike. The rug is also from Fargerike.
Wallpaper Imperial Trellis from F.Schumacher, and matching blue/greyish paint that is called Kjølig Eleganse FR1207 (from Fargerike)
The second bedroom has been painted in Botanika FR1208 (from Fargerike) combined with yellow and pink. Gives a fresh and summery feel all year round.
The third bedroom is also green, but a cooler shade than the second bedroom.
The bathroom has a Laura Ashley mirror, Vedum console and moroccan tiles from Marrakesh Design.
Pale blue drapes that rest on the floor.
I absolutely loved our garden this summer.
We have some weeks ahead of us that are filled with important decisions and events. Am excited to see how everything pans out.
Happy Wednesday!! :)
