Kitchen love

It’s time for me to go back to work again. It has been an amazing Easter break – a much needed one for sure. During my beak, I found this beautiful kitchen on Fantastic Frank. It almost made me change my mind in terms of painting our kitchen cabinets grey. It’s such a lovely kitchen space – and I’ll keep it in mind in the future.

The apartment also has a few wonderful bed solutions for the kids, so if you’re looking for new ideas in that department, go check it out right here.

Wishlist in April

While redecorating our home this Easter, I’ve collected a few things I would love to buy in order to complete the decorating process.  Wishlist-april

Last year we painted a wall grey in our hall. I would love to add roseMuuto dots out there. I’ve been looking for this beautiful Russel James picture of Scarlett Johansson. Luckily for me, Fotografiska now ships to Denmark. I fell in love with the Wooden Bulp Lamp, when I first saw it on Moodings. It would be perfect in our ‘new’ kitchen. Even though it’s time for me to pack away all my candleholders, the black Line from byLassen will stay on my list. With the ‘new’ kitchen, I want to make sure we dust more – and the dustpan and broom from Normann Copenhagen will surely help us.

Spring cleaning on my Mac

I was just spring cleaning my desktop on my mac. I was supposed to paint some more, but I just needed a clean canvas before class.

I saved these pictures from Fantastic Frank some time ago, and I forgot to share them here on Espresso Moments. Just now, I got inspired all over again, and might do something similar in my boy’s room. He’s getting a desk for a ‘big boy’ tomorrow, and I need some decoration on the wall above the desk.

It’s a working vacation

Skærmbillede 2014-04-18 kl. 10.04.42

First of all, Happy Easter from Aalborg. I hope you’re enjoying some time with your family and loved ones.

I’ve been keeping busy at home for almost a week now. It’s my Easter vacation, and the four of us are enjoying spending time at home, visiting friends, staying up late, cooking new dishes and cakes and of course redecorating our home.

After a much needed spring cleaning, I can now concentrate on moving things around in our home – trying out different spots and creating new installations. I’m loving it.

Right now we’re in the middle of a kitchen make-over. We’ve hated the kitchen ever since we saw the home for the first time. So we were never in doubt about the future of it. We just needed to live and cook in it for some time, before deciding on what to keep and what to change. foto 2 We decided on painting our kitchen cabinets instead of getting a whole new kitchen. In less than a week our kitchen will be grey. We decided on the same shade of grey (grey ral 7004) as the String shelves. A large blackboard is also in the making right now.

foto 1 Our rood top terrace is also on our list before heading back to work again. We’ve bought fresh herbs and an olive tree, and after another round of oil we’re ready to dig out the Garpen lounge furniture we bought at Ikea last year. I cannot wait to sit out there at night, reading and enjoying a cold drink. You can see pictures from last year right here, here and here.

Today, I’m also getting ready for yet another round of Blogging Your Way. This time our co-teacher will be Tina Fussell from Traveling Mama. I’ve been reading her blog for ages, and she’s such an inspiration. I love seeing Copenhagen through her eyes. I cannot wait for class to start on Monday.

The Zara Lookbook

foto 1 foto 2 foto 3 Looking through the pictures from the Febuary Lookbook from Zara, I find myself dreaming about baby clothes again. Once again I’m thrilled by the beautiful styling and I just want to buy all of it. I’ll just have another look at the baby lookbook and the mini lookbook and then make a cup of coffee and sit back with one of the many magazines I bought in Hamburg.
