It’s Friday and I’m off to a dance party at the school. The calendar is packed with meetings and activities these weeks. I hardly have any time to finish some of the interior projects, which we’ve started. Tomorrow, I’m going to the Finders Keepers fair here in Aalborg – I hope to return with a lot of inspiration and maybe a thing or two.
One of the things which inspired me lately is a bunkbed project by Susanna Vento. What a beauty – and it’s so practical. I love the storage space in each bunk. You can see many others photos of the project on Instagram #projectbunkbed – it’s almost a step by step guide.
A few days ago I read that it would be a very cold winter here in Denmark this year. I’v bought some things to prepare the kids for the cold weather, but I’ve still got a few more things on my list before I’m fully ready for snow. Over the years I’ve tried lots of different brands when it comes to kids clothing. I’ve found a few favourite brands, which I know will keep them warm and dry during the winter season.

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.

I’ve finally decided on a storage solution in my boy’s room. I was really getting tired of all the open storage solutions in there. It was rather stressful cleaning his room, because everything was always visible.
This Sunday my husband (and I, I did help) got some Method wall cabinets from Ikea in different sizes. A few years back, I saved a few pictures with kitchen cabinets used in a boy’s room. I loved the solution then, and I haven’t found one quite as good since. So now I guess it was time to put it in to action in my own home.
Another advantage about picking this solution is that I can always style his room according to his age. I’ve been wanting to create some solutions that’ll grow with him. Then I can just change the smaller things in there to fit his age.
This is what the room that inspired me looked like in the beginning. It was pretty much the look I was going for. It’s the perfect way to hide all the toys and clothes, and it adds a much calmer effect to the whole room. The next two photos, I want to show you, are from a styling Riikka and Emma did for the Danish brand ferm living. The room is still the same, but by changing the smaller interior pieces in the room, it looks like a different room. This is the kind of room I would love to work with, when it comes to matching my boy’s age.
So what do you think? Would you ever consider using kitchen wall cabinets in your kids’ room?
I’m in the middle of sorting and putting some of his stuff away. But I’ll show you some pictures when the wall is done. Do remember to check out Espresso Moments on Instagram – I might put up a picture or two there as well.

This year my husband and I have invited my whole family for Easter lunch.
Since my grandfather passed away last Christmas, I wanted the whole family to get together even more. We’re the only ones left, and I want us to stay close and be in each others lives. Not a day goes by where I don’t think about my grandfather – I miss him so much – but this way I know he and my grandmother would be proud.
I’m trying to plan which dishes to make, but I’ve still got a long way to go. Instead I started looking at DIY projects for Easter. I know the kids will love making hama bunny’s and decorate Easter eggs.
I’ve collected some of my favourite Easter DIY projects. I hope you and your family will have a fun time while making decorations for the Easter table.
For more Easter inspiration you can always visit my Easter board on Pinterest. I’ll collect many more ideas there in the coming days. So stay tuned for even more Easter fun.

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.
