Decorating a tween room

It’s all about decorating our tween’s room these days. We’ve been talking about buying a new bed for our girl for quite some time. Some of you might remember me writing about building a ‘storage bed’ for her earlier this year. We kind of left it at that. But now we’re at it again. Trying to find the best solution for us and her. And buying a bed she’ll like in a few years time as well. She’ll turn 11 in January, so the bed has to be fit for a teen.

She’s taken an interest in decorating, and she likes to watch videos about decorating. I’ve been watching some of them with her, in order for me to help her find the things that she likes. We’ve come up with this list so far. We’re not certain about the bed yet, but right now it’s on top of her list.

The playful home full of Lego

I was tempted to call this the lego home, based on all the Lego objects in this home. It’s pretty cool, and it’s a nice touch to this home. I don’t know if I’ve been sleeping in class, but I don’t remember having seen small String shelves like these ones before. They are really cool and the perfect fit for a desk solution like this one. I think I might have picked a solution like, for my daughter, this had I known.

A glass wall

I’ve always loved details like the ones found in this bedroom. I keep telling my husband that we should consider a glass wall like this one, or just a window like the one in the kitchen. What I wouldn’t give to add a window like this one in our home. I can name a few places in a few seconds, if someone asked me 😉 I’ve been dreaming about a detail like this one ever since we moved into this place. It would be perfect in our kitchen and hallway. I wouldn’t mind a wall like this one either in our bedroom.

On my wishlist right now

I’ve got a few things on my wishlist right now. I’m in need of music when I’m working, and I’ve been looking for the best solution. It would be so cool to be able to listen to  music while at work. I’m also shopping for a few things for our trip to Mallorca later on this summer. And with weather like this, I really want to add a few things in our garden as well. We love eating outside, and we’ve had some great nights out in the garden this year.

I don’t know how she does it….

Do you know that feeling? You look at one of your friends and you wonder: how on earth does she do it? I’m talking about everyday life. Work. Family. Balance. Life. Fun. And it all looks so easy peasy.

We’ve been having some crazy weeks lately. And between work, picking up kids, soccer practice and cooking dinner, well we haven’t managed much else.

This weekend I had planned to clean the house (for a party next week), and simply pull the plug, and just relax with my family. I’ve managed most of it, but I could use one or two more days just to get my energy back on track.

I’ll leave you with some beautiful pictures from Montana, which I really love.

Kitchen dreaming on a Saturday

It’s Saturday morning, and I’m dreaming about a new kitchen (once again) while looking at Vola HV1 one hand mixer for our bathroom. I’m loving the design, and it’s been on my to buy list for ages.

It’s six o’clock in the morning and I’m the only one up. So I thought it would be a nice time to write something here on the blog. Last weekend I found this beautiful raw kitchen in a Swedish home. I’ve been dreaming about a raw wall like this one ever since. I would love to update our kitchen, and make it more contemporary.

I keep looking at some of the solutions in this kitchen, and imagine how I can do something similar in our own kitchen.
