Coffee and work

I’ve been home sick for the last couple of days – including most of the weekend. I haven’t been able to do much besides lying down on the sofa or bed. But today, I’m off to work again – at least I’ll try it out and see how it goes. My head is still not all the great.

One thing I did notice while in bed was the new coffee maker Push from Muuto. It’s already on my must see in real life list. I need to feel and explore this beauty.

I’m off to work, so have a wonderful Monday out there.

DIY for fall

I’ve started collecting a few ideas for DIY projects for fall. I’m getting rather restless these days – and I need different projects at home to distract me, otherwise I get in a foul mood – and we don’t want that.

fall DIY projects

Here are a few of the DIY projects on my list:

Le paper globe – I want to make one or two – one for each kid. Want to make your own, then you can print it right here and get started.

Kitchen labels – I found some really cool ones and a guide over at nordic mojo. Unfortunately, the link to his labels doesn’t work anymore. But it’s great for inspiration. I really need labels like these in my kitchen – and it would be the perfect fall project.

Cord decoration – I first saw this idea a few years ago, and I’ve been wanting to try it out for ages. Now that I might have found wooden balls large enough to fit the purpose, there’s no excuse anymore.

Paper airplane – Ever since I saw Tina’s, also known as Traveling Mama, cute decorations for her boy’s birthday party last year, I’ve been wanting to add paper planes to my boy’s room. He’s got a large old school map on one wall in there, so the planes would be really cool. To see more pictures and to have a look at Tina’s guide, click here.

Lamp decoration – Ever since we moved into the new house, over two years ago, I’ve been wanting to change or even throw out a few lamps. Therefore, I think it’s time to either decorate them or get rid of them. I’ve got a few ideas in my head for decoration.

A String palace

I’m still a bit crazy about the String system. Even though my husband has asked me not to buy another String shelf for our home – I still enjoy looking at pictures of other people’s String systems. These ones caught my eye this weekend.

Inspired by a home in Gothenburg

I’m dreaming of a few days in lovely Gothenburg without the kids. Just walking around the city hand in hand – enjoying a cup of coffee and just getting away from my everyday life right now.

Another possibility is getting a few things done around the house. I’m thinking about painting walls, making shelves, adding prints here and there, making a lamp, finding a solution to either the kitchen or the bathroom – the list is long, but getting one of the things done would be fantastic. This might actually be the most realistic option right now.

I would love to make shelves like these for our room upstairs. I’m feeling really inspired to do something similar, when I look around this beautiful home in Gothenburg.

House Doctor Moments

I’m really enjoying the new catalogue from Danish House Doctor. I’ve been reading and looking at beautiful pictures for the last couple of days – and I’ve found more than a few items I want to buy this fall. Hopefully, I’ll have tome to highlight a few of them in a post next week.

It’s too early for Christmas decorations yet (at least for me) – but if you’re as crazy about that time of year as I am – then you should take an extra look at their catalogue  right here.

Have a wonderful Sunday out there. housedoctor_M14_2d housedoctor_M14_13a housedoctor_M14_20a housedoctor_M14_53a housedoctor_M14_89a housedoctor_M14_96a

Kitchen planning and winter shopping

These days I’m surfin’ the net quite a bit. I’m buying clothes and winter coats for the kids. Or should I say – emptying their account.

When I’m not doing that, I’m looking for different kitchen solutions. Right now I’m leaning towards an Ikea/ &shufl solution. But I still think I’ll need a trip to Copenhagen in order to see it in real life.

Until then – I’m still collecting pictures of inspiring kitchens – like this one over at Fantastic Frank.
