orange + kitchen plans 2

I’m planning our kitchen (and the rest of the rooms) and I’m thinking of upholstering our granny chairs, just need to decide the color. This would look good in our new kitchen.

apartment in stockholm

This Tuesday’s Scandi inspiration is not an apartment in Stockholm, but a house on a beatiful island called Gotland. Nevertheless, it’s beyond gorgeous!image image image image

I can’t stop!

black wallpapers

Darlings, remember I talked about the black and gold rooms? I’m totally nuts about the color combo these days, and the same goes with orange. You see, even my blog got a bit orange! So, last weekend after I had slept in (travelling does make one tired, but oh.so.happy) I walked over to the local paradise, the wallpaper store! I had some black and gold pretties on my radars, and here’s the catch:

gp & j baker one and two

We had already decided for a Swedish wallpaper called Vera from Sandbergs collection, but I think I’m leaning towards the bold gold & black ones.

black'n'gold

Good Monday my friends! Hope your weekend was great! I've had a lovely weekend, a lot of work with the little apartment since it's going to be photographed and hopefully, sold pretty soon. We are, as you probably know, preparing to move into our new apartment in couple of months, and guys - it's so exciting!

This weekend I've been lusting after black and gold. I've already told my guy we probably need to change the wallpaper plans (again) and go for something very bold like this!

Would you have black walls?











So I've been frequent in Pinterest and looking for black and gold inspiration. What's your take? Love the glam? I do.

I'm travelling again, this time in the Czech Republic. So I'm sending all my glamorous friends big hugs from my hotel room!

fabulous wallpapers

Last weekend I was spending my time in the local wallpaper store, and BOY it’s huge! I managed to go through most of the papers I wanted to see IRL. I have now made almost all the choices for our home, and I can’t wait to start putting them up!

My friends have this gorgeous wallpaper in red in their hallway – it’s such a statement and a great welcoming view for all color lovers!

Happy Thursday my friends! At the end of this week we are going to visit Hem & Villa, probabaly the Scandinavia’s largest public fair for home decor and interior design. I’m so excited about it!

newest addiction







How was your weekend? Mine was pretty nice – we enjoyed the beautiful autumn weather and the nature that’s slowly turning from green to bright reds and yellows.

Last weekend I also finally created my pinterest account. Yeah, I wanted to see what’s all the fuzz about so I logged into the community and oh-la-la, found it pretty difficult to leave!

So, let's try this thing out now...





















Here's my first ever pinning test!


How did I do? I'm about to find a new addiction...

Talking about addiction - I'm just about to send in the application for Formex - the largest interior & desing trade show in the Nordics! I'm so excited, let's hope they will give our booth a nice placement! We must discuss the booth design and all that too! I'm sure to tell all about it :)

our new living space

This will go to my mood board for the new home.

image

this is till in the game

image

this we have already (allthough I’m trying to negotiate it to the summer cottage, which we don’t have yet)

image

Question – the legs? Will I get tired of the mish mash of the legs? I think stylewise they are so far away from each other so maybe it could look good together? I’m not clear on that yet.

We could do this too

image

But then we need the whites to match. Or THIS!?

image

We will go for a cool and clean look so that we get to decide the accent colors once we have adjusted into the new place. We have already chosen some real fabulous wallpapers, and they are NOT white! Furthermore, you can expect a lot of books and paintings.

our kitchen plans part 1

As you propably know, I and my homies are going to move into a new apartment in some months time. The tricky part is that we cannot really go over and take picture in order to start planning. Why? Because it’s still under construction! So we need to visualize how it will be until the beginning of next year. That won’t stop me from planning!

image

This is the kitchen cabinets we chose. Minus the glas cabin doors. And minus the shape. Also minus the handles. And the other materials, colors and so on… But you get the point right? The kitchen cabins are from this collection. The hardware we picked looks like this.

image

The kitchen table will look like this

image

His name is Pedro. I’m thinking that if we ever own another cat, he will be called Pedro. I’m sure our Pablo would be thrilled! Now, let’s move on to the real dilemma – the chairs!

We are going to put these darling granny chairs into our kitchen. Now I’d like upholster these babies somehow. But I’m not sure what fabric to use… Any ideas?

image

We went through some of the stuff that we had stuffed up to the attic – and in the mids of all strange crap we have been collecting over the years, my guy showed me a lamp he has owned since he was… well, younger. I’m so excited about it, and can’t wait to reveal it!!! But, patience now… :)
