Ikea hack – love at first sight

On Monday, I fell in love big time. I was scrolling along Facebook, when a beautiful bookcase from Stylizimoblog appeared on my phone. I had to know more about this Ikea hack. I found more pictures of this grey bookcase, and my crush became even bigger.

The bookcase is made out of two of the biggest VALJE shelf units. Add to that a beautiful grey color. I’m crazy about this light grey color. No wonder Nina was inspired, when she saw a similar bookcase on Anna Kubel’s blog. I think I might have to convince my husband that this is the best idea I’ve had in a while. I showed him the bookcase on Monday (I couldn’t help myself), and his first reaction was… do you need yet another bookcase. Yup, and I’ll find a way 😉

Interior inspiration – black and white living

Today, I want to share a black and white home with you, before I’m off to watch both my kids play soccer. It’s the first tournament this winter season, and it’s usually quite fun to watch.

I can feel the Christmas spirit in the air. I’ve bought wrapping paper at Søstrene Grene, and some of the Advent gifts for the kids. I’m not quite finished, because I still need to find one last gift for each of them. I’ve got a few post planned about what to get for your kids, and hopefully I’ll have them ready soon.

It’s time for a cup of coffee and a croissant before the rest of the family wakes up.

Have a lovely weekend <3

Black and white photographs

Lately, I’ve come across some beautiful black and white photographs, which I’m seriously considering above our sofa.

The first picture I’ve found on Coco Lapine’s shop. It’s called Black Beach. It’s a beautiful picture of a rock formation touched by the ocean on the black beach, photographed in Iceland. The second is also from her shop, and it’s called Snowy Tree, which was photographed in Munich. The third picture Decordots’ shop. It’s called Rainy Day, and it’s a photo of raindrops on a window.

I’m thinking about buying them all, and then change the photographs on the wall from time to time. The Snowy Tree would be perfect this time of year.

Skandinavisk in my home

I kind of like the idea of a scent diffuser – I don’t know if it’s the minimal design, the names or simply a combination.

I’ve been avoiding scented candles for years, because I got a headache, when I had to walk past them in the different stores. The smell was simply too much for me.

However, I think I might be able to enjoy the scent diffusers in my home. I’m leaning towards Dag, Nat, Hygge, Koto or Ro. I might also be tempted to buy the small combi pack with the mini scented candles Hygge, Koto, Ro just to try it out. They’ve madet to my Christmas wishlist this year, which I’ll show you in a few posts time. Until then, I wish you a lovely Monday, and I hope your week will be nice and calm.

Interior inspiration – bunkbed

It’s Friday and I’m off to a dance party at the school. The calendar is packed with meetings and activities these weeks. I hardly have any time to finish some of the interior projects, which we’ve started. Tomorrow, I’m going to the Finders Keepers fair here in Aalborg – I hope to return with a lot of inspiration and maybe a thing or two.

One of the things which inspired me lately is a bunkbed project by Susanna Vento. What a beauty – and it’s so practical. I love the storage space in each bunk. You can see many others photos of the project on Instagram #projectbunkbed – it’s almost a step by step guide.
