Right now

This is Malte in our sofa, picture taken just now. After a long walk in the forest. A dog in the sofa is one of the best things I know.

I've made this owl for our baby to come.

Fall has hit us, big time.

Have a great Saturday!

A great 4 roomer

This looks like a nice place, for sale in Malmö. I've got the same chairs, I need a String shelf in the house, and who wouldn't want a ceiling rose like that - don't think it will fit in our modernist house though.

Hipstamatics from the day

Cold, rainy and grey - still colorful.

I know I've showed at least some of these on the photo blog I had before. But they could as well have been taken today; same clear, fresh skies and light.

Enjoy what's left of October!


Think I fell a little bit in love with this fox. Could imagine him on my wall.

Hope your weekend has been a good one. We've had friends over for coffee and ice cream, we've made some good food and now I'm hoping there will be a good movie on the telly.

Green is sweet

I might have underestimated green, this place make you consider green everywhere, doesn't it?
The place has got a lot of personality and inspiration. It's a 75 square meter flat recently sold in Malmö by Bolget.

House update

Things are happening, even if it doesn't really show. The plumber and the electrician is working on the inside and the exterior is soon to be covered in concrete.
And we are longing more and more until we can move in!

Industry trend

I've always loved industrial furniture and been inspired by industrial environments. Here are some fav's mixed with own (industrial) pictures. I like the mix of industrial with modern, functionalistic interiors. Think our new place will be something like that. Thanks for all the comments on our old house by the way!
And oh; my photo project with Hiki goes on, have a look at the last post here.

Mine calls for a walk in the cold but sunny outside, Jerusalem artichoke soup and a movie.
Can't get this song out of my head, don't mind though, love it.

Our ex house

These are pictures from our ex house, built in 1906. We restored the interior (floors, walls, decoration) and painted the facade warm white and the doors red.

The hallway was one of the things we fell in love with, looking at the house for the first time. It has an impressive ceiling height and is very roomy. However the wooden floors were very worn when we moved in, and the staircase and splines were dark blue (just to give you an idea).
Quite a lot of hours were spent on the floor, but we were very happy with the result.

We found the station clock at an antique fair in Helsingborg, gave it a new clockwork and mounted it to the staircase.

The floors here were rubbed down by husband during a Christmas holiday. They were every worn and with an old layer of varnish, where not worn down.

See my big Bumling light? Another favourite, after the Triplex that is :)

Livingroom above, with many flea market finds (table, chairs, armchair, lamps).

We didn't do anything to the kitchen, it was newly renovated when we moved in. We just built the table on wheels (husband built, after my sketches).

The bedroom was one of my favourite rooms due to the ceiling height and the visible beams. This room was like a cave when we moved in; dark blue walls, brown ceiling beams and red floor splines. This was the first room we restored.

Cow parsley (Cole&Son) on the wall below, one of my fav wall papers. Karin chairs (Bruno Mathsson) fond on auction.

We sold the house two and a half years ago when done with the restoration. That's when we realised the house was a bit to big for the two of us and we felt finished with it when it was in order. Can't explain it any better than that. We loved the house but have never regretted selling it.

Workshop transformed

One of mine and husbands dreams is to restore an old workshop, idnustrial property or fire station, and transform it to a creative home. That's what's happened to this motorcykle workshop in Copenhagen. Love it.
And a Triplex Lamp would fit perfectly in this interior, must say :)
Read more about the couple and the restoration on Sköna Hem.

Fall (in) love

Not quite as warm as it may look, but a great day still!
Hope you're having a great Saturday too, we will cuddle up in the sofa, watch movies, drink tea and light candles. Must love fall.
