SHOW CASE IT

Time to focus on some more of my great wants, a lovely display cabinet – to show case some of my favorite items. My biggest issue is the fact that I want one for each room. One for the hallway to keep shoes and other things to display, one for the kitchen for pots and pans with a special flair, one for the living room for the favorite books and other nick nacks, one for the bedroom for more clothes and shoes to hang about and one for the bathroom for all the items now stored in drawers…

Here is some visualisation of why I am in love with the display cabinet…

THE BARN

Feel like getting off the grid? How about doing it in a gorgeous barn conversion – I know these lovely homes makes me want to jump of the grid asap! We are talking lovely brick work, high ceilings, lots of light and gorgeous beams. Just imagine finding the perfect quiet spot, the perfect old barn or stable to redo just the way you want it… It’s absolutely one of the home-related dreams of mine!

LAYERED RUGS

I’ve been coming across tons of images full of layered rugs – and I like it. I don’t know what it is that is so appealing with layered rugs… It might be the excitement of mismatched patterns going crazy or maybe it’s the sort of aloof “I don’t care” attitude it gives off? Who knows, the main thing is, in most of the images I’ve come across – it looks pretty brilliant.

Over to the visual input bit of this post, enjoy!

I will probably not end up doing this at home (mostly because I don’t own an abundance of rugs to scatter around my house – and at the same time have them overlapping each other), but still, I do enjoy looking at it though!

FIXING IT UP

Spring is just around the corner, of course that leads to me wanting a great old clean up. Which will be the first clean it all up moment since we got the place… So it’s well over-due.

So this weekend family is stepping through the doors, and we will clean it all out and fix everything up to the standard we want.

I have four main things I want to get sorted; and here is some inspiration for the four.

————————————————————————————-

1. the hallway

We have some way to chunky shelving in the hallway, which leads to more mess than order. I would love to change it with some good storage units and maybe some hooks for the dogs stuff. All I want to do is make my hallway a bit more convenient, easy!

I think I would love this in our hallway, narrow enough for the hallway not to seem over cluttered and at the same time storage enough for all the things I have laying about, via

In love with this space, narrow yet seems spacious… Wish I had that floor, beyond amazing! via

This is also a great storage solution, I am in dire need for more storage options for my home… via

Want the floors, the storage space and most of all the wallpaper, via

2. the bedroom

Second on my list of “need-to-sort” rooms is the bedroom… What needs to be done is the removal of things I have no use for, this is mainly clothes, but also some furniture. The things I want to do with the space is fix some storage (I am in need of a dresser and some solutions to keep my stuff organized – I have a lot of beautiful mess that needs organizing)… Also, I want some new bedding! Nothing beats sleeping in new and fresh bedding.

Absolutely adore the black wall, feel a post on black accent walls coming on ;) via

The bedding is amazing – and that side table – common! via

The details, via

A pop of pink, via

3. the kitchen

The kitchen is just one big clean-up-job! Need to get rid of everything we do not use and figure out what we need to get, then sort it all out and organize it… Not looking forward to the clean up bit of this job, the organizing on the other hand is more my thing.

Black and white, simple and clean… What I want – not to keen on the floor though… via

Another black and white kitchen, more keen on the floors in this one though! via

The tiles! via

Simplicity is key… via

4. the home office

Then there is the big one, the home office. I have begun this process a couple of months back but still lagging behind, simply because things keep getting in the way. What needs to be done is all organization, and getting some furniture to make that organization a tad bit easier to fix.

Work with a view, via

Oh my, if I had this kind of space I would be over-excited… Would probably spend 90% of my time in the room. via

Absolutely adore everything here, via

Bright and light, just right! via

Now all I have to do is start the planning and then start the packing, oh my the weekend is getting awfully close!

BRING ON THE NAVY

And of course I am not talking about handsome men in uniform, no, I am predisposed to talk about the color. Shades of blue are still on a rise when it comes to the so-called casters of trend… Good for me, since I just happen to be a fan of the shades of blue, and recently I have a wanting for more navy blue – both on my body in the way of clothing and in my home in the way of splashes of color. I would actually love a dark blue accent wall somewhere around here… So, as I usually do, I hoard inspiration on the color at hand, and here is a collection of my favorite findings.

INSPIRATION FLOW

Happy weekend! Been running on a bit of a low these days, only when it comes to the aspect of time – energy and joy on the other hand is running perfectly high. It’s the weekend, and this one I have dedicated to sorting my stuff out – which means organizing my space and my different projects… Besides increasing amounts of responsibility at my job (the day job), I have several projects on the creative side running a bit wild. So this weekend I am stopping the stagnation and fixing my office space… Whatever I can do without running out to buy storage units and shelving. Oh and I am going to clean out my wardrobe – need to figure out what to keep and what to give away… Think I am at the point of realization that I use only 10 percent of the things in there…

So, while having a break from the organizational bits at home I am feeding my mind with some visual inspiration. What better way to organize the visual inspiration of the day than sharing it on here?

Hello kitty – I like your physic, unknown source.

For the bride in you, for the photographer of the bride in me (and for the sweet tooth in everyone!) via

Who needs to get married in the summer when they can do it in the winter? via

The perfect Chloé coat – wouldn’t mind this showing up on my doorstep! via

Need flowers, via

Typography/branding, via

I think I finally found it, the perfect wallpaper, via! The wallpaper is by Ellie Cashman, have to figure out how to get a hold of it here in Norway, pure perfection.

The colour, via

One part of me is screaming “PERFECT KITCHEN”, other part of me is whispering “you’re a messy cook, cleaning that wood would be mayhem”… via

Make coffee look good. via

I can’t fault this one, the perfect mix of natural shades of wood, black and white… And that tub! via

I have a craving for these amazing soap stones, one can get them right here.

That’s it for now – heading back to the world of organizing!

PALM SPRINGS ENVY

Just have to share this amazing home I came across cruising around airbnb today. Looking into accommodation possibilities in our chosen cities we want to visit. Of course Palm Springs is on the list, and of course I had to find what seems to be the perfect Palm Springs abode out there… It has three bedrooms and is a perfect mix for that mid-century modern eclectic pool party fiesta feel. Almost want to book it just because of its inner and outer beauty, but I will keep myself content by just looking at the pretty pictures…

All images via

Oh common, admit it! Don’t you just want to move in? I know I do!

WARM WOODEN FLOORS

A bit back I did a group of posts on different ceiling treatments, I feel the same is about to happen now, only in the floor department. I feel like the best way to start off a trail of floor posts will be with a great wooden bang! It is no great secret that I crave an old apartment or an old house, with original wooden floors for me to tip-toe around on. I know combining the word warm and wooden floors may be a bit strange, but to me nothing gets warmer than a wooden floor…

I want my wooden floors to be organic and rustic – something like this:

DEBORAH BOWNESS WALLPAPER

I have a sweet spot for wallpaper, the issue is that I also have an issue with the idea of putting it in my own space. But when it comes to the amazing wallpaper by Deborah Bowness I am having issues not ordering it and putting it up in every room of my home. Ok, maybe not an entire wall of it – since that would be a bit over the top – but I’d put it up on a panel, on one wall on its own, I’d frame it… There is no end to the possibilities. One of my seasonal favorites {being the apartment in the city dweller that I am} must be the wallpaper christmas tree – bring it on!
