I’m sure you’re not surprised to find out that I’m pretty excited about IKEAs collaboration with HAY. I’ll be first in line to get my hands on some of the items, that’s for sure. I’ve collected a (tiny – I wish) shopping list already. Of course, I’ll have to see the YPPERLIG collection irl before making a final decision. However, I’m pretty enthusiastic about what I’ve seen so far. So I’ll show you what’s on my list – as long as you don’t go and buy all of the stuff before me 😉

It’s all about decorating our tween’s room these days. We’ve been talking about buying a new bed for our girl for quite some time. Some of you might remember me writing about building a ‘storage bed’ for her earlier this year. We kind of left it at that. But now we’re at it again. Trying to find the best solution for us and her. And buying a bed she’ll like in a few years time as well. She’ll turn 11 in January, so the bed has to be fit for a teen.
She’s taken an interest in decorating, and she likes to watch videos about decorating. I’ve been watching some of them with her, in order for me to help her find the things that she likes. We’ve come up with this list so far. We’re not certain about the bed yet, but right now it’s on top of her list.

We’re redecorating our dining room these days. We’re trying to create a cozy spot for the whole family to enjoy. A lot of waiting and patience is needed, which I’m not good at by the way. I’m still trying to decide which coffee table to buy, but I think I’ve found a winner. But we’ve decided on a new lounge chair. My husband and I have picked out a A Lounge Chair from Hay. Here’s where the waiting kicks in again. The new chair will arrive in about 8 weeks time.
Right now I’m browsing Instagram and Pinterest for even more inspiration. I’ve also got a dining spot to redecorate, but right now my main focus is the sofa spot, and how to make that as cozy as possible. I’ve found the beautiful Twin 35 or Twin 42 coffee table in cool grey from ByLassen, which I hope my husband will like. I’m also looking to add a new lamp and some coziness to the spot. Here’s a look at my current mood board/wishlist.

I’ve bought these gifts for my girl for the four Sunday’s of Advent this year. The reason why I didn’t write numbers on them, as I did with the Advent gifts for my son in this post, is because I haven’t quite decided what to give her on each Sunday.
Well the first Sunday is pretty easy. She’ll get her cubebot/ninjabot the same day as her brother. That way they can play with them together. I bought a bunch of stuff from Hay while I was attending the course in Aarhus earlier this year. A bunch of pink stuff for her room, which I know she’ll love. I haven’t decided if all the pink stuff should be one gift or several.
She has been reading her “This is London” book, and we wanted to give her a few more books in English. When I found “This is the world”, I bought it right away. I love the illustrations in these books, and we’ve been reading them to her for years. If all else fails, I’ve also got a tube scarf that I have to finish before Christmas. It could end up being her more practical gift.
We, or should I say I’m moving things around in our home these days. First I moved my work station into our bedroom and then moved the dining table. I wanted to redecorate our dining room in order to make room for a sofa of some sorts. We need a spot in there, where we can sit down and relax. Right now we’ve only got one armchair and a safari chair – and lets face it, the safari chair is nice to look at, but you don’t use it, when you want to relax. I’ve created a mood board in order to keep track of my thoughts when it comes to decorating the room.

I’ve been looking for a new dining table solution for months now. Our Ikea table just isn’t working for us anymore.
This morning, I found this beautiful home in Stockholm on Fantastic Frank, and I immediately fell in love with the dining table. We’ve got the Hay Loop Stand Table Legs in black, now all we need is wood. It would look fantastic with our black AJ chairs. I’ll add this to our list of weekend projects. I saved a few other pictures from the apartement. Check out the beautiful leather sofa.
Have a lovely day <3
