Swedish living

I’m loving so many things about this Swedish home. I’m ready to try out a raw wall in the kitchen, hang new prints on the walls, buy new chairs from Menu, paint the kitchen grey (and the bathroom as well), find out where to buy the cool storage solution above the workspace, buy even more plants, and I could go on and on.

36 squaremeters of cool interior details

First of all, happy Valentine’s Day. I hope you get to spend the day with the one you love.

Today, I’ve got something small, but quite special for you. I’ve got 36 squaremeters of cool interior details for you.

Sometimes I wish I could do it all over again. By ‘it’ I mean live in a small apartment, living the life of a student and getting by with less. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t trade my family life for anything <3. But do you ever wonder, what might have happened, if you’d made a different decision along the way? How your life would have turned out. I always find lots of inspiration, when I look at these small one or two-bedroom apartments.

The one-room apartments are my favourite, because I love seeing how creative people are, when they have to work out how to create a functional home as well as an aesthetic home.

This 36 squaremeters apartment is a very good example. And the most important thing… it works brilliantly. I love how the sofa has been used to mark the relaxing zone. The darker wall, which marks the bedroom area is a perfect contrast to the otherwise white apartment.

This is the perfect inspiration for me right now. After two days filled with playdates, a sick daughter at home, the fact that my grandfather would have turned 90 years old today (I still miss him so so much every single day), a head filled with way too much information and things to think about… the list is long, but I’ll stop here. Well, I need and want to focus on something else.

It is all in the interior details

AV14

We’re redecorating the dining room (again). It seems like we’ll never finish decorating this home. However, this change is for the better, I can feel it already. Prior to the change, we didn’t use the room much. We ate dinner and used the dining room table for creative projects. That was pretty much it. We only had one comfy chair in the room, so whoever got there first would be the lucky one. So we decided to make some changes. Right now we’re waiting for a new sofa to arrive, and we’ve moved the dining room table to another spot in the room.

While we get some minor things sorted out – like changing the light cords and getting rid of some books – I’ve started to collect pictures of beautiful interior details, which I’ll use for inspiration, when putting the final touch to the new room. Hopefully, we”ll be ready for Christmas Eve.  AV16 EK51 EK61 EO33 JD6

Townhouse with cool details

RPD04_1 Today, I want to share some pictures of a beautiful townhouse in Copenhagen. The home belongs to the Danish blogger Cathrine aka rockpaperdresses and her boyfriend. I’ve been reading her blog for ages, and I love her feminine and quirky universe. For those of you who don’t know her and who speaks/reads Danish, well all I can say is check our her blog.

Cathrine’s beautiful home was recently featured in BoligMagasinet. I loved, and still do, all the cool details in her home. I fell madly in love with the idea to add green plants on the wall above the stairs. She’s got a pretty neat kitchen as well. I hope you like her home as much as I do. Check out BoligMagasinet or her blog here for more pictures of her home.

Have a wonderful day <3

 

Small spaces

I’ve found this small space, which is rather interesting. I don’t know about you, but I believe that decorating a smaller space takes much more skills and creativity, than to decorate a larger space. Of course there are difficult aspects of both.

When I’m looking for inspiration for our own flat, I tend to look through my archive of smaller spaces, because they are filled with fantastic solutions. Because when it comes down to it, we all have the same basic needs that we need to make room for in our home. The only difference is the amount of space.

What do you do, when you are looking for inspiration?

This space is special in more than one way. This is the second home of the owner – the city apartment in Copenhagen. If I remember correctly, he lives with his family somewhere outside the city.
