Yup, it's a real cave... My husband finally got his man cave! Not sure if this is what he had in mind, though..
Our house was built in the 50s, and in Norway, it's preferred to build on "fjell" (mountain), because of the weather conditions. My grandfather designed the house, and he did make some interesting decisions, like this room, which was supposed to be a sauna! (for some strange reason that never happened though ;))
So the big question is... WHAT would you do with this room?

Our new home right in our current neighbourhood, and it belonged to my grandparents. I've spent countless summer, falls, winters and Christmases here.
It does need some TLC though. The fireplace will be kept as is, but the rest of the decor, including the faux beams will be removed (as well as the facing wall)
There's beautiful floors beneath the wall-to-wall rugs from the seventies, and we will try to keep them.
Want to see the the house go through it's makeover? Follow me on Instagram for weekly updates and progress (it will be quite dramatic to say the least). My username is Fargerike_Dagny

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!! :)

Lately, I've been swooning over Ygg&Lyng's table, Viola. Ygg&Lyng is inspired by Norwegian nature and heritage. Their oak table is a future heirloom, and of fantastic quality, produced the old fashioned way.
The table comes in several sizes, but the grand 240x100 cm is my favorite.
The design is super versatile and can easily be adapted into several different types of interior.
What I love the most about Viola, is that it is very Norwegian in it's design, and it respects our heritage, but at the same time brings something new to the table. It's definitely modern.
