Right now I’ve got a black kitchen craving. I know it’s not the time to renovate our kitchen, but I still love looking at beautiful kitchens for inspiration.
I’m leaning towards a black kitchen, primarily because the rest of our home is very white. The kitchen is the first thing you see, when you enter our home, so I would love for it to stand out a bit. Make a bit of a statement, and that’s why I’m thinking dark colors. And it fits perfectly with my black kitchen cravings. I pin a lot of pictures of different kitchens, but I always get super excited, when I find a beautiful black/or dark grey kitchen.
Then when I found this black kitchen, I was pretty happy. It contains many of the elements, which I love. Take the tiles for example. We’ve got similar tiles on our kitchen – the only thing I really like about our current kitchen. And then there is the black kitchen cabinets. I would change the kitchen countertops with wood instead. In a few days, I’ll show you another black kitchen with a wooden countertop.
On this wonderful Sunday, I’ve picked out a few cool finds, which I’ve found in different Etsy shops. This time I’ve selected things I would love to add to our own home. You can never get too many mugs, and the But first coffee mug, would be a cool mug for an office. I’m still adding plants to our home, and I loved the set of hex spora at first sight. Also, I’m never able to find doormats that I like, but the sparkle one is actually quite perfect.
I’ve been thinking about knitting a large blanket like the grey one. But I’m more tempted to buy it this time, and start knitting something else instead. The pillow case and the picture would look good in my cozy corner.
Lately, I’m really inspired by tiny interior details, when it comes to decorating your home.
I’ve always loved walking around town and spotting different interior details in the homes I walk by. My husband and I used to do it a lot before we had kids (not in a nosy kind of way, of course). I’m sure we’ll do it again soon, because the kids are growing up, and in the not so distant future, we might get the chance to walk hand in hand down the street more often – just the two of us.
Until then, I’ll enjoy the times we do, and browse the internet for even more inspiration. Take this home for example, I know it’s been done before, and some of you might even be tired of it by now. But I love the raw brick walls in this home. What is more, I love what they’ve done with it.
The fact that the kitchen and other spots around the home are so clean and minimalistic makes for the perfect raw element.
I’m drawn to this home, because I find some very beautiful solutions, which corresponds with my own taste, but I also find corners of this home, where I’m left thinking: Why on earth did they do that? That’s what I love most about getting a glimpse of how other people live and decorate.
I know I normally don’t write about movies here, but I was just watching the official trailer for the movie Me before you, based on the novel by Jojo Moyes. The novel had me weeping for quite some time. The last novel, which made me cry like this was A crack in forever by Jeannie Brewer, which you should read, if you haven’t already.
I have to see the movie, to see if it can live up to the book – it’ll be in cinemas June 3, 2016.
Today, I’m going to take you back to the very same home, because I want to show you a cool detail in the bedroom. As some of you might remember, I’ve had a thing for the Botkyrka wall shelf from Ikea, for quite some time. Then when I looked closer at this bedroom, and discovered the shelves above the bed, I was very pleased. This is such a cool solution, and the perfect way to display books, and all the other things you tend to have beside your bed.
It’s so simple, clean cut and I’m still in love with them. I did end up buying a couple of white shelves for my boy’s room. They are perfect for all his Lego.
