A while back, I was asked to write something about Smart Space Saving Tips for BoConcept. It is now live on their website and you’ll find some cool tips from some talented ladies. As a family of four, living in the city, space saving ideas are always on top of my mind. Therefore, I was pleased, when they asked me to contribute. If you decide to check it out, you might as well take a look at a few cool office accessories.

So we bought a dog (his name is Arthur, and he’s the cutest little thing), my husband left for Rio for ten days, my little guy turned 7 years old, the kids returned to school, I returned to work, soccer practice began, I turned 37 years old, went to Mallorca for a week, we returned to school and work again and before I knew it, months pass by…
Welcome back to everyday life.
To say that August and September have been kind of busy would be an understatement. But here I am, still breathing and very much alive.
We’ve been moving some things around, in order for Arthur not to eat or destroy them. It made me look at our home in a whole new light, and some of the things I thought I couldn’t live without, well now that they’re gone, well I kind of love it.
I’m ready for fall (so why is it still very hot outside?) – and I’m ready for some changes around our home. It’s time to get cozy inside, get out all the blankets and candle holders (not that they’ve been that far away – it has been a shitty summer in Denmark this year).
Cool kitchen blackboard
I was reading this post on decor8 a while back, and I saved, because I really loved the family home. The beautiful home belongs to Mariët van der Kooij, who blogs at Miss Jettle.
I’m craving so many things from her kitchen. But what I like the most is the blackboard. I’ve always wanted something like that. I love the small quotes and the drawings on this one. It’s so cozy and filled with personality.

I was tempted to call this the lego home, based on all the Lego objects in this home. It’s pretty cool, and it’s a nice touch to this home. I don’t know if I’ve been sleeping in class, but I don’t remember having seen small String shelves like these ones before. They are really cool and the perfect fit for a desk solution like this one. I think I might have picked a solution like, for my daughter, this had I known.

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.
First of all, I’m really missing this place. Somehow, I never manage to sit down and just get lost in interior design solutions these days. I’m way too tired, or busy spending time with my family.
But I never created Espresso Moments to just to let it die out. I still love this place, and I think about it almost every day. I’ll make time for writing posts again, and I cannot wait to share some cool solutions with you here.
Today, I want to leave you with quite a few pictures, which have inspired me during the past month. I’ve collected quite a few, and I hope you’ll like them, and be inspired by them as well.

Don’t you just love it, when you discover some pretty cool details in a family home? I do.
I’m always trying to find new ways, new ideas, new inspiration, when it comes to creating a functional and beautiful family home.
I’ve found quite a few interesting ideas in this family home in Norway. I’ve been dreaming about using Muuto dots for our stairwell for a long time. I love the idea of creating your own lamp over the dining room table, as well as the different seating options. And why not use the walls for storage? The bike on the wall is pretty cool.
