So we bought a dog (his name is Arthur, and he’s the cutest little thing), my husband left for Rio for ten days, my little guy turned 7 years old, the kids returned to school, I returned to work, soccer practice began, I turned 37 years old, went to Mallorca for a week, we returned to school and work again and before I knew it, months pass by…
Welcome back to everyday life.
To say that August and September have been kind of busy would be an understatement. But here I am, still breathing and very much alive.
We’ve been moving some things around, in order for Arthur not to eat or destroy them. It made me look at our home in a whole new light, and some of the things I thought I couldn’t live without, well now that they’re gone, well I kind of love it.
I’m ready for fall (so why is it still very hot outside?) – and I’m ready for some changes around our home. It’s time to get cozy inside, get out all the blankets and candle holders (not that they’ve been that far away – it has been a shitty summer in Denmark this year).
Cool kitchen blackboard
I was reading this post on decor8 a while back, and I saved, because I really loved the family home. The beautiful home belongs to Mariët van der Kooij, who blogs at Miss Jettle.
I’m craving so many things from her kitchen. But what I like the most is the blackboard. I’ve always wanted something like that. I love the small quotes and the drawings on this one. It’s so cozy and filled with personality.

The kids have been at soccer camp all week, and my husband and I are still busy with work. Two weeks to go before I can sit back and enjoy my summer holiday with the rest of the family.
But I’m planning to rearrange a few things in our home before that. Last weekend we ended up buying the Ikea bed for my daughter, which I mentioned in this post. She’s crazy about it. Last night we watched The Karate Kid (her for the first time – and me reliving one of favourite childhood movies) in her bed. We both slept in it last night, which was really cozy. The bedding from Sirlig, which I mentioned in the last post as well is on sale right now, and I just clicked two home for the family. My daughter has been talking about it for ages, so I hope I’ll get an OMG out of her when she sees it.
We still need to decide on prints in her room. I’m not into a whole wall filled with Christopher posters, so we’ll need to find a middleway. I’ve been collecting a few free prints on Pinterest, and then we’ll find a few together.
All three prints are free. Find the Throw kindness around like confetti here, the Everything is awesome print here and the moon phase print here.
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.

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.

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.

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.
