It’s time to decorate our new terrace in our garden. I’ve been looking at different tables and chairs all week. I’m still not quite sure what to get, but we need something soon. It’s time for long nights, drinks, colourful lamps and good company. I’m ready for summer in our garden and not just our roof top terrace. Here are a few of the things currently on my maybe – maybe – not – list. I see a trip to Ikea in the near future. Maybe a bit of sunshine will make the decision much easier.
1. Falster table from Ikea
2. Cool flamingo from Kitsch Sweden from Designdelicatessen
3. Rocking chair and table from Ilva
4. Långholmen parasol from Ikea
5. Väsman chair from Ikea
6. A mushroom the kids will love from Designdelicatessen
7. Lökö parasol base from Ikea
8. A Weber Spirit grill
9. Black table with bench

Today, I want to share a few pictures from Fantastic Frank with you guys. Looking at pictures of this family home in Stockholm makes me want to sort out my work space. I’ve been talking about it for ages, but somehow other projects jump the line, and I never get around to it.
Right now our garden is taking up most of our free time. We’re redoing half of it, and getting rid of old trees and bushes. Hopefully, we’ll get to the fun part down there soon – the terrace and making it cozy. Right now it’s just a lot of waiting around and hard work. I’ll show you the result, when it is more than a pile of dirt. We’ll be working on it for the next few days. Today we’ll also be looking at dressed up drunk teens running around in the streets as well. It the big parade day here in Aalborg, which will end another week of Aalborg Karneval.
But back to my work space. I’m working on different solutions in my head and on Pinterest. I’m in desperate need of storage space. Magazines and pieces of paper tend to pile up on my desk, and it is just too complicated to move everything around when I have to get some work done. I’ll show you what I have in mind soon.
Have a fantastic day <3
Last week I found the perfect home on Fantastic Frank. It doesn’t happen every day, but this time, I must say: I love every tiny bit of this place.
Now I just want to add more grey in my own home. Paint a few doors and chairs, add a bit of dusty rose, finish replacing the kitchen cabins and clean out all the stuff we don’t use after all.

I simply love this family home. I saw it for the first time in the Danish magazine BoligMagasinet, and I looked at and read the the magazine spread numerous times. I simply felt inspired and full of ideas. It is the Nørrebro home of photographer Pernille Kaalund, and she done a fantastic job by turning this old factory space into a beautiful, flexible family home for herself and her three kids. The space is also her studio, which is a really cool detail.

I know I’m a bit early (if you ask my husband), but I really wanted to make a wishlist – it’s been so long. And the I thought, Mother’s Day is coming up – and it is the perfect excuse. My family and I will be spending the day out in the woods with some friends, but hopefully we’ll have time for a nice breakfast or just a slow morning in bed with books and newspapers.
