Inspired by a home in Gothenburg

SFDA14CE69C69414A75A4EB62B6730CA5DB

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.

Monday Inspiration

My daughter started 2nd grade today, so I’ve got half the day off. It’s an amazing feeling seeing her in class with all her friends. She’s excited about new classes – including English and just getting back to school after the holiday and playing with her friends.

I was also at the day care with my little man this morning as well. It’s something I almost never get the chance to do, because I have to be at work so early. So here I am, at home, drinking a cup of tea and just thinking about what an amazing family I’ve got. I’m a lucky girl.

Here’s a glimpse of what I loved last week:

  • Yvonne Koné’s stunning new shop in Copenhagen, I cannot wait to stop by next time I’m in Copenhagen. Note to self: Must buy another one of her beautiful bags.
  • A home office, filled with beautiful things; I’m crazy about the table and Le sac en papier.
  • Cool news from Ylva Skarp. I’m pretty sure my mother and father bought the balance print for my birthday. On Friday I’ll know for sure.
  • And last but not least, Maria Harmuth‘s table. I’m thinking about creating a similar table. I’ve been looking for a new dining table, but it’s really not that easy finding something we both like.

Birthday and superheros

This weekend my little boy turned 5 years old. It was a wonderful day for all of us. We played with the new Lego Batmobile and plane and the racing set for most of the day. His grandmother and grandfather came to visit and it was time for his cake. After that we went into the city to watch a cycling race. My little man loved it.

I’m sticking to the superhero-theme a little longer, because I’ve been wanting to show you these prints from My Deer Art Shop. I’m so in love with the Zorro-dog.

Welcome to the city of champions

While in Gothenburg I stopped by Artilleriet in Magasinsgatan. It’s a must stop by shop when I’m in the city. And a natural stop before getting a cup of coffee at da Matteo right next door.

I really wanted to buy the “Welcome to the city of champions” print by Playtype. But somehow I left the shop without it, but with another nice treat for myself though. I then returned home and started researching for new blog posts, and I came across the print again. I saw it in this beautiful home on Alvhem.

The home, which is not for sale anymore is located in the same street as another of our must stop by places in the city. We always enjoy a meal at Egg & Milk.

I’m loving the Gothenburg print in the kitchen as well as the selection of coffee. Yes, I did spot coffee beans from da Matteo. I wouldn’t mind going back – maybe a little getaway with out the kids.
