Champagne Home in Sweden

I was looking for inspiration the other day, and I found this cute little home in Gothenburg. While looking at all the beautiful details, I actually started looking at all the champagne bottles. Suddenly I got the urge to hop in a car and drive to France and buy bottle after bottle. I wonder if my husband would feel the same?

When we planned our wedding reception back in 2007 we wanted a fancy wedding cake and lots of champagne. We were students back then with a little girl and didn’t have enough money for a big wedding party – but we wanted to splash out on these two things. I haven’t regretted it one moment. It’s still one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Some people didn’t understand our decision, but I loved the fact that we didn’t care. It was our party, and that’s how we wanted to celebrate the day with friends and family.

But somehow the champagne bottles haven’t been that big a part of my life since. Of course, we drink a few bottles on New Year’s Eve every year and on special occasions. However, I would love to pop a bottle on a Saturday night as well. I think I’ll add “drink more champagne” on my life goals. That’s not a bad plan if you ask me.

Back to the apartment

I should also add a comment about the apartment – it’s only fair. The styling of this small home is pretty impressive if you ask me. It’s a small apartment, but it’s got everything you need. I cannot help but admire the smeg fridge. I’ve loved it forever, but now I’m not so sure I would actually buy one for our kitchen. I’m convinced that our old fridge will be the next thing to go in our home. So I’ll have to decide sooner than Iater. I’m also in love with the old rustic door. What is your favourite part of this home?

Townhouse inspiration & wishing you a Happy Friday

Wow, I’ve been looking forward to this Friday for a while now. Not that the last couple of weeks haven’t been interesting – in fact, they’ve been some of the best weeks in a long time. But today it’s vacation time!

It’s time for our Easter break. We’re not going anywhere – we decided to cancel Hamburg this year – in favor of going all in on our trip to London later on. So we’ve got a week ahead of us, filled with family time, visiting friends and family and just relaxing and enjoying some time off. It’s actually kind of perfect.

The home tour I’ll leave you with today, well it’s been open in my browser for quite some time, and every time I click on it, I fall in love with this townhouse all over again. I hope you’ll feel inspired too. Have a lovely weekend <3

Bathroom details from Ikea

Yesterday, I came across this grey Godmorgon bathroom cabinet from IKEA, which I really like. I’ve been looking at different solutions for our bathroom for years. I dream about doing it all over again. I would love to be able to see our touch and feel our ideas in there. I know that I would enjoy it every time I walk in there. I would love once and for all to change the 90s feel to it, and make it more simple and fit for a family of four.

Having bought a home, which a father and his son renovated in the early 90s, well lets just say, I could make a long list of things that either doesn’t work in reality, or looks horrible. Little by little we change all these things, and hopefully we’ll get to the bathroom in 2018. If not all of it, then at least make a few small changes.

I’m not crazy about the table top solution, or to be honest, I would have to have a look at in real life to make up my mind. But for the past two years, I’ve been dreaming about making our own table top. First I was crazy about a concrete one, but I think I’ll end up with something a little lighter.

But now I know, what to look for the next time I’m in IKEA.

Home inspiration for your weekend

It’s time for some real home inspiration again. I’ve been focusing a bit too much on the lifestyle part of this blog lately, and I haven’t shared some inspiring photos of lovely homes in a while.

But today is the day. I’ve collected a few favourites for you, and hope you’ll start your weekend full of inspiration. As you can see, I’m not quite finished with the grey scale interior, if I ever will be. I love stylings like these, and would love for my own home to look just a fraction like these. I’ll keep dreaming and collecting images for inspiration. Have a wonderful weekend <3

A rustic home – inspiration

The other day, I was reading through some of my favourite blogs – and I came across this beautiful rustic home. I could start writing about all the things I love about this place (eg. the cool chair/sofa with the cute dog in it) or I could simply just end it here, and let you enjoy this home for yourself.

It’s all about the grey

Right now I’m sitting at our dining room table looking out on a grey Sunday white drinking a cup of coffee. The kids are out playing soccer, and I’m at home writing an application for a job among other things.

It’s been a wonderful weekend full of good people, inspiration, cleaning, movie afternoon with the kids, holiday planning for 2017, wine, g&t, coffee and a granny bun from Penny Lane. I couldn’t ask for much more.

I thought I’ll leave you with some interior inspiration – and the color for today is grey with a hint of white. Enjoy <3
