This is how our steel kitchen from Ikea turned out. The counter top is made concrete on site. The kitchen is still in progress.

This kitchens is the old system that IKEA just change to a new and more flexible system.
Counter doors RUBRIK

This Christmas is in the rainbow

It´s been three years sense we had Christmas at “home”. So we are very eager to get starting whit the decorations. Coming from an old house whit a 1920 style to our new house that is a bit of everything. We decided to get more eclectic this year less traditional in our decorations.

Moved in!
I´m back! Opps it´s been a long time sense I posted anything on this blog. Time fly’s with moving in and all other stuff that’s been going on.
And woops it’s nearly Christmas again… and looking back on this year it’s hard to think that a year ago we had all the troubles in the world whit our building site. But all things comes to end and finally here we are in our new house!!!

There are of course some works to finish both outside and inside but we are slowly getting there.

This it what it all came too. 
We had it custom made with Berzetti KB.
Although our floor is fake oak, we are happy with the result of the staircases color they are made of real oak and so is the stair handles.

Time to pick the stairs!

Finally the snow is gone and spring has come to stay!
Now our time has come to pick the stairs. This has been spinning my mind for quite some time now. How to get a cool, good-looking staircase that has a statement and still is just there to welcome you between the different floors?

My idea is to get a staircase that has a classical approach but with a rufer twist to it.
My dream staircase is an old fashion iron balustrade, often seen in France and England.
Up her in Scandinavia noop... cant´t find nothing like it.
And now time is running and I need to get a stir in before July.

Classic stair

Dream stairs, this is from Trisha Guilds home

Love the black iron stairpol

Laundry room

So what can be done here?  This room is our laundry room and technique room.
I’m tempted to use TEAL color in my utility room.
Will it look to dark in room without windows?
Or should I go for grey and fuchsia? I would love to hear what you think.

The toddlers’ room

Here is my inspiration for my 2 year olds room.
She got the room with the best view.

I got inspired from http://www.erikaeverett.com
I’m a big wallpaper lover and  Osborne and Little is one of my all time favorites. Thats why it was an obvious choice !

As time goes and we have still not moved in our 2 year old has grown out of the crib. She will take over her big sisters vintage bed that will be painted in coral.

For the bedding we will use Amy Butlers fabric -“ Peacock Feathers “

I had the idea as so many others to paint the famous paper lamp from IKEA “Maskros”.
But haven’t we seen it too much? It’s been hacked in all kinds of forms and shapes?
Still is a cool lamp, can’t decide if I should get it or not?

Wallpaper love....

I just saw the ad of this wallpaper in the lasted issue of Living ECT.
Have always loved those covers from the Penguin books, as a child.... and now there is new Osborne and Little wallpaper with books covers all over!
I have to get this in some where in my new house; maybe the studio could have an accent of those lovely colors?

Mommy vs. the eighth year olds taste

So we re now exited to get things going and finally be able to move in;)
This will still take some time.

One of my big fears at the moment has nothing to do with the constructions.
It’s my 8 years olds way of decorating….HELP!!!
She has picked out a nice wallpaper and walls will go turquoise.
Its great she starts developing her own taste.
Don’t wont to risk that she becomes a copycat or a mainstreamer!!

Anyway what is my problem?
ONE DIRECTION !! At the moment she is turning her new room in to a One-direction fan club.

What I’m I to do?

Entrepreneur trouble

We have now experienced having a building suite on hold for over 2 months. Our contractor is bankrupt and we have for the last month been dealing with the insurance company to get our ”finishing insurance”.
In Sweden to get a mourgage you need to buy a special building insurance.
This insurance covers up to 10% of the total contract.
After a very stressful month not knowing if we would get the insurance or not we had some great news on Friday. . .  So now its fresh re-start of the project with new contractor and new great spirit. Whish us luck !!

Steel kitchen from IKEA

For some time we have been searching around for steel kitchen. Not so easy but IKEA saved us a trip to London (and a lot of money) - and will deliver our steel furniture perfectly suited for the industrial feeling we want to create.

Winter garden/conservatory

I have to say that I´m very happy with how the outcome of the winter garden looks!

March, and its standing still!

Snow is slowly reducing and part of me loves it we have had a very, very long winter. 
What hides in the snow will soon be reveled, and I will find myself leaving in a garbage dump ;(

Still hope to get the outside finished by the end of this month and hopes that April will bring money and happy builders?
