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

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.

It’s Saturday morning, and I’m dreaming about a new kitchen (once again) while looking at Vola HV1 one hand mixer for our bathroom. I’m loving the design, and it’s been on my to buy list for ages.
It’s six o’clock in the morning and I’m the only one up. So I thought it would be a nice time to write something here on the blog. Last weekend I found this beautiful raw kitchen in a Swedish home. I’ve been dreaming about a raw wall like this one ever since. I would love to update our kitchen, and make it more contemporary.
I keep looking at some of the solutions in this kitchen, and imagine how I can do something similar in our own kitchen.
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.

I didn’t plan to take a break away from Espresso Moments during my Easter Break. But it sort of happened anyway.
I’ve had some wonderful days with my family. Seeing both sides of our extended families, a trip to Copenhagen with my husband (more about that in a later post), a lot of play dates for both kids, relaxing times at home – well I managed to fit quite a bit into this break.
Before I leave today, I want to show a few pictures, which inspired me during my break.
Have a wonderful week <3
