5 dishes… – the breakfast edition

I’ve been so busy lately. I recently started a new job, and I’ve been tired when I got home at night. So blogging was the last thing, I wanted to add to my daily work. But I really missed this place, and I’ll try and stop by a few times a week from now on.

Today, I want to share 5 dishes with you guys. This time it’s the breakfast edition, because I’m trying to be more creative, when it comes to this meal. I’ve selected the five dishes because I liked the ingredients, the look of it, and because it’s something that I would love to eat myself for breakfast.

I hope you get inspired to try out one or maybe even more of these dishes. Enjoy <3 Breakfast Collage 1. Smoothie Bowl

Cool details in a family home

Don’t you just love it, when you discover some pretty cool details in a family home? I do.

I’m always trying to find new ways, new ideas, new inspiration, when it comes to creating a functional and beautiful family home.

I’ve found quite a few interesting ideas in this family home in Norway. I’ve been dreaming about using Muuto dots for our stairwell for a long time. I love the idea of creating your own lamp over the dining room table, as well as the different seating options. And why not use the walls for storage? The bike on the wall is pretty cool.

Interior inspiration after my Easter Break

I didn’t plan to take a break away from Espresso Moments during my Easter Break. But it sort of happened anyway.

I’ve had some wonderful days with my family. Seeing both sides of our extended families, a trip to Copenhagen with my husband (more about that in a later post), a lot of play dates for both kids, relaxing times at home –  well I managed to fit quite a bit into this break.

Before I leave today, I want to show a few pictures, which inspired me during my break.

Have a wonderful week <3

Using kitchen cabinets in my boy’s room

I’ve finally decided on a storage solution in my boy’s room. I was really getting tired of all the open storage solutions in there. It was rather stressful cleaning his room, because everything was always visible.

This Sunday my husband (and I, I did help) got some Method wall cabinets from Ikea in different sizes. A few years back, I saved a few pictures with kitchen cabinets used in a boy’s room. I loved the solution then, and I haven’t found one quite as good since. So now I guess it was time to put it in to action in my own home.

Another advantage about picking this solution is that I can always style his room according to his age. I’ve been wanting to create some solutions that’ll grow with him. Then I can just change the smaller things in there to fit his age.

This is what the room that inspired me looked like in the beginning. It was pretty much the look I was going for. It’s the perfect way to hide all the toys and clothes, and it adds a much calmer effect to the whole room. The next two photos, I want to show you, are from a styling Riikka and Emma did for the Danish brand ferm living. The room is still the same, but by changing the smaller interior pieces in the room, it looks like a different room. This is the kind of room I would love to work with, when it comes to matching my boy’s age.

So what do you think? Would you ever consider using kitchen wall cabinets in your kids’ room?

I’m in the middle of sorting and putting some of his stuff away. But I’ll show you some pictures when the wall is done. Do remember to check out Espresso Moments on Instagram – I might put up a picture or two there as well.

5 dishes I would love to try out – the chickpea edition

Cooking is on my list of things I want to do even more. A few years back I stopped doing some of the things I really loved doing. I really missed it, and I missed that creative part of me. Fortunately, I got back on track, and now I try to do things I love (just for me) every day.

I’ve been thinking about a theme for each month (like a do more of xxx that’ll make you happier kind of theme) – something that will keep me focused, and I get the chance to explore the theme even more. I’ll give it some more thought, but if I do decide to do it, I’ll let you know.

But lately, I’m beginning to cook more again. I’ve been collecting recipes since I was a kid. And now I’m cooking and baking again – and I’m really enjoying myself while doing it.

I’ve made a list of 5 dishes that I would love to try:
1. Chickpea shawarma sandvich
2. Roasted veggie pitas with avocado dip
3. Green chickpea & chicken cocunut curry
4. Rainbow power salad with roasted chickpeas
5. Garlicky kale salad with crispy chickpeas

I didn’t plan it, but when I looked through my list of dishes, I somehow craved chickpeas, and all I could think about while looking through them was how delicious all the dishes with chickpeas looked. Next time, I’ll be sure to pick a variety of dishes. But I do hope, you like chickpeas just a little bit.

Have a lovely day <3

The light box

These days I can’t stop thinking about buying a light box. It’s super cute, and I’m thinking about getting one for my boy. We’ve been doing a bit of re-decorating in his sister’s room lately, and he has been asking if we could make a few changes in his room as well. We’re planning a few major changes in there, but we’re not planning on doing them right now, so a few new (and smaller) things might do the trick for now.

I’ve been browsing Pinterest and Instagram for inspiration, and the more I see the more I want to buy one. If you are interested check out this #lightbox or Pinterest.

I think the whole family will enjoy writing small sayings and greetings, and the light box can be used all around our home. You know me, I love buying things, which I can use all around our home, when I get tired of it in one room.

I’ve found a light box from A Little Lovely Company. Looking through all the pictures, I came to the conclusion that I need more letters. I’ve found some really cute ones, and with different sets of letters the light box can be used around the house even more. I think I’ll go with the basic set, the set with numbers and symbols and the celebrations symbols.
