My dream kitchen

Dream kitchen 1

This is my dream kitchen. Our kitchen was build in the 1990s by a father and his son. To be honest, they had horrible taste – but I’m also quite sure that taste wasn’t the issue – cost was. It’s an everyday hassle, when you have to cook for a family in our kitchen. That’s why a new kitchen is on top of my wishlist.

We’ve made a few changes already, but the long haul is still ahead of us. We’ve created a kitchen island using fronts from IKEA – like the ones seen in these pictures. I love the light grey color, and the more I think about it, the more I’m leaning towards a total makeover using these fronts. It’s nice and simple, and I keep returning to pictures like these, when I’m looking for inspiration.

A rustic home – inspiration

The other day, I was reading through some of my favourite blogs – and I came across this beautiful rustic home. I could start writing about all the things I love about this place (eg. the cool chair/sofa with the cute dog in it) or I could simply just end it here, and let you enjoy this home for yourself.

Want Wear Need Read in September

Want wear need read September

Want – Even though my birthday was last month, I still have a few things left on my wishlist. I recently came across this beautiful snow globe which would be perfect for my office space. I simply love them, and a few years back we always bought a snow globe for our daughter, when we visited a new place. I found some really cute ones – I’m trying to decide between the more winter inspired collection or the zen collection.

Wear – I would love to wear these new pants to yoga – or simply at home after some television yoga.To top it off, I would add the cool grey sweater by Rebecca Minkoff. I’m trying to get back in the routine and would love for my daughter to join me on the mat. Right now I’m looking for a class for both of us.

Need – I really need a new bag. My everyday bag has seen better days. I’m on the lookout for something classic and black. I need a medium size bag for the stuff I carry around on a normal day. I’m trying to cut down on the stuff that I carry around in my bag – but that’s a whole other story. I’ve been looking at Rebecca Minkoff’s Regan Satchel Tote online, but I want to feel and have a look in the store before buying it – just to make sure.

Read – I’ve been wanting to read Milk and Honey all summer. Milk and Honey is a collection of poetry and prose about survival. About the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity. Milk and Honey takes readers through a journey of the most bitter moments in life and finds sweetness in them because there is sweetness everywhere if you are just willing to look.

by Lassen to focus on the hallway – AW2017 news

I’m thrilled to see the AW2017 news from by Lassen. I love the fact that they’ve focused on functional design for the hallway. Most often it’s the first room people see, when they visit you – and I know ours has been filled with shoes, raincoats and what have you for way too long.

And being the design geek that I am, I’m even more thrilled about the fact that they’ve taken us back to where it all started, namely with the burnished copper Kubus candleholder, just like the first one designed in the 1960s by Mogens Lassen. That’s fantastic news, if you ask me. Now I’ll just have to come up with a solid plan in order for my husband to wrap his head around the fact that I need yet another Kubus candleholder.

HAY designs for IKEA

YPPERLIG HAY designs for IKEA

I’m sure you’re not surprised to find out that I’m pretty excited about IKEAs collaboration with HAY. I’ll be first in line to get my hands on some of the items, that’s for sure. I’ve collected a (tiny – I wish) shopping list already. Of course, I’ll have to see the YPPERLIG collection irl before making a final decision. However, I’m pretty enthusiastic about what I’ve seen so far. So I’ll show you what’s on my list – as long as you don’t go and buy all of the stuff before me 😉

New prints – something for the family home

I don’t really need new posters or prints for our walls – but I always get inspired or should I call it tempted, when I get a mail from Desenio. I’ve got a discount waiting for me, and I just had to stop by their site to check out the selection. Oh darn, it’ too tempting. I could add at least 20 new ones to my basket in a minute.

Here are some of the posters and prints that I would add to my basket, if I were to buy some today. I’ve found some for the whole family – and with a birthday coming up in August, when my boy turns 8, well who knows, maybe he’ll get a poster or two.
