It has been a crazy week. It’s almost Christmas and when I pick up the kids from school today they’ll start their much needed Christmas break.
Time for baking, time for watching movies, get together with friends and family and it’s time for looking back at the year, which will soon come to an end. I feel lucky that I get to be around the people I love and care for and I hope that you can do the same.
Today, I want to leave you with a few beautiful pictures from a Swedish home. Nothing Christmassy about them at all, but they inspired me.
Yesterday, an email from Nomess landed in my inbox about their Gravity Rack, which is a pretty cool wardrobe solution. It’s super easy to hang. Just take a look at the video at the end of this post.
I kind of like the idea that it is easy to take down, if you need more space. It’s super simple, yet very beautiful. The bended metal tube is held in its position only by a cord string – this string is fixed to the wall by two metal hooks. The Gravity Rack was designed by Thomas Schnur and the maximum weight is 20 kg.
When it’s time to redo our hallway, I’ll keep this one in mind.
Somehow we’ve managed never to finish redecorating our hallway. So I’ve decided to do something about it now. It’s the first thing I see when I come home, and the first thing our guests see when they arrive. Our hallway is in need of some serious TLC and some finishing touches.
Seriously, how long can it take to get it finished. With the winter season approaching, we really need it to be more functional. With two kids, and their friends, as well as two adults (and their friends as well), well the hallway gets crowded and messy fast. I admit, I do have my share of shoes out there, but so does the rest of the family.
I don’t just want the space to be practical. I want it to look good as well. I’ve collected a few pictures for inspiration in this post. I’ll be working with these in mind, when I give it another go out there.
I’ve come across this beautiful hallway while browsing on Stadshem a few weeks ago. I keep coming back to these pictures on my Mac. I’m inspired by the minimalistic yet very functional interior. I’m dreaming about doing something similar in our hallway.
I’ve decided to make a few changes in our hallway. It’s old, dark red, green and gold coloured, and some of it belongs to the old lady living downstairs. Therefore, I cannot change the whole thing just yet. But what I can do is to make a few changes outside my main entrance.
Therefore, I’ve created this collage with some of the things I want to buy to make it feel more like the onside of our home.
One wall is painted grey, and I want to place these things on or in front of that wall.
For years we’ve had the Kubik bookcases from Trævarefabrikernes udsalg. They’ve been used in almost every room in our old home as well as our current home. It’s not too deep, and with a few small storage boxes, it will be perfect for hats, mittens, rain coats and other stuff for the kids.
With two adults and two kids in the house, we really need storage space. We’ve got a ton of shoes. I’m looking for a shoe rack for the one pair of shoes we use the most. The one from Normann Copenhagen has been on my list for some time now.
I would love to add a mirror out there as well. I’ve found this one on Ellos, and it’s not that expensive. No more getting out of the door with messy hair.
The rose Muuto dots would look great on the grey wall, and I would use them for tote bags. To add a bit more rose colour out there, I would like to add the Vee Speers The Birthday Party on the wall as well.
