This is my dream kitchen. Our kitchen was build in the 1990s by a father and his son. To be honest, they had horrible taste – but I’m also quite sure that taste wasn’t the issue – cost was. It’s an everyday hassle, when you have to cook for a family in our kitchen. That’s why a new kitchen is on top of my wishlist.
We’ve made a few changes already, but the long haul is still ahead of us. We’ve created a kitchen island using fronts from IKEA – like the ones seen in these pictures. I love the light grey color, and the more I think about it, the more I’m leaning towards a total makeover using these fronts. It’s nice and simple, and I keep returning to pictures like these, when I’m looking for inspiration.

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 😉

On Monday, I fell in love big time. I was scrolling along Facebook, when a beautiful bookcase from Stylizimoblog appeared on my phone. I had to know more about this Ikea hack. I found more pictures of this grey bookcase, and my crush became even bigger.
The bookcase is made out of two of the biggest VALJE shelf units. Add to that a beautiful grey color. I’m crazy about this light grey color. No wonder Nina was inspired, when she saw a similar bookcase on Anna Kubel’s blog. I think I might have to convince my husband that this is the best idea I’ve had in a while. I showed him the bookcase on Monday (I couldn’t help myself), and his first reaction was… do you need yet another bookcase. Yup, and I’ll find a way 😉

The kids have been at soccer camp all week, and my husband and I are still busy with work. Two weeks to go before I can sit back and enjoy my summer holiday with the rest of the family.
But I’m planning to rearrange a few things in our home before that. Last weekend we ended up buying the Ikea bed for my daughter, which I mentioned in this post. She’s crazy about it. Last night we watched The Karate Kid (her for the first time – and me reliving one of favourite childhood movies) in her bed. We both slept in it last night, which was really cozy. The bedding from Sirlig, which I mentioned in the last post as well is on sale right now, and I just clicked two home for the family. My daughter has been talking about it for ages, so I hope I’ll get an OMG out of her when she sees it.
We still need to decide on prints in her room. I’m not into a whole wall filled with Christopher posters, so we’ll need to find a middleway. I’ve been collecting a few free prints on Pinterest, and then we’ll find a few together.
All three prints are free. Find the Throw kindness around like confetti here, the Everything is awesome print here and the moon phase print here.
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.

I’ve got a few things on my wishlist right now. I’m in need of music when I’m working, and I’ve been looking for the best solution. It would be so cool to be able to listen to music while at work. I’m also shopping for a few things for our trip to Mallorca later on this summer. And with weather like this, I really want to add a few things in our garden as well. We love eating outside, and we’ve had some great nights out in the garden this year.
