On this wonderful Sunday, I’ve picked out a few cool finds, which I’ve found in different Etsy shops. This time I’ve selected things I would love to add to our own home. You can never get too many mugs, and the But first coffee mug, would be a cool mug for an office. I’m still adding plants to our home, and I loved the set of hex spora at first sight. Also, I’m never able to find doormats that I like, but the sparkle one is actually quite perfect.
I’ve been thinking about knitting a large blanket like the grey one. But I’m more tempted to buy it this time, and start knitting something else instead. The pillow case and the picture would look good in my cozy corner.

Today, I’m in need of some family home inspiration.
It’s one of those horrible days. The kids didn’t sleep well, and neither did the parents. Everyone is way too tired to function normally. On top of it, they are both coughing, and it can go both ways. How are you holding up these days?
So today, I really need some inspiration, and later I really need to cuddle and do nothing at all with the kids.
I’ll leave you with a beautiful family home, which I find quite interesting. I like the simplicity of the interior, the black, white, grey scale mixed with a lot of green plants. After the night we’ve had, I’m seriously considering buying a larger bed, or placing a bed for either my husband or me in my boy’s room. I’m really inspired by the one in this family home.
It seems like the never ending story around here. When you think you’re done with the kids’ rooms, then it’s almost time to start re-decorating again.
Okay, I’m partly to blame, I know. I tend to find cool new solutions, and then I want to implement some of them in their rooms.
But apart from my ideas, we haven’t found the right storage solution either. We keep trying new things, but after a while, we get tired of it. It’s either too big, too small, too (insert word), I’m sure we’ve tried it all.
The beds are another problem. It would be so practical if our daughter had a bigger bed, with storage underneath. A cool solution for our son’s room would be a bed like the one in this apartment. It would create the space he needs on the floor, and he would have a nook underneath, where he could have a TV or something similar.

I’m over the moon about the new IKEA VIKTIGT collection. IKEA has teamed up with Swedish glass and ceramic designer Ingegerd Råman for this one.
The VIKTIGT collection ranges from handmade glassware to furniture woven from natural fibres. The items will be in IKEA stores in May 2016. I’ll be first in line to check out some of the things. I especially love the furniture collection, which I would love love love to add to our home. The sofa is really high on my wishlist, so I really hope it lives up to my expectations, when I see it in my IKEA store in May. Below is a collection of some of the items, which made my heart beat a little faster.
What about you – did you find something interesting from the new collection to add to your home?
Christmas was not that long ago, but seeing all the beautiful SS16 collections from some of my favourite brands has made me add quite a few things to my never-endnig-wishlist. I’ve picked out a few things from the list to share with you today.
The Muuto restore storage basket has been on my list for quite some time. I actually thought about buying one or two for my boy’s room. They are really pretty, and it would be perfect for some of his toys. But lately I’ve been thinking about adding one to our new cozy corner in the dining room. The storage basket would be perfect right next to the sofa. I would fill it with magazines, books, toys and all the other stuff we ‘forget’ in there.
I’ve had my eyes on the ‘older’ version of the ferm LIVING collect vases. But the new edition of the collect vases from the SS16 collection is much more me. I bet I’ll end up buying it.
Another thing on my wishlist is the new maze blanket from ferm LIVING. It’s also from the new collection. Even though I’m still in love with the one I’ve got, I think it’s a January thing. My kids snug up in the sofa with either a book or an iPad and the blanket, and some days (I’m sure you know those days too), I wish I had two blankets – one for each of them.
I wrote about the new Gravity Rack from Nomess last year as well. I’m still rather smitten with it, and even though I don’t have a space for it yet, I’m still dreaming about it. It’s a pretty cool idea.
This beautiful Annaleena print has appeared on my wishlist before. I still love the pink stairs, and I’m hoping that one day it’ll hang on my wall.
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.
Have a wonderful weekend <3
