So here we go, the room-by-room inspiration check is on its way. I’ll start with the room we’ll start fixing first, the bedroom. We have decided to fix the bedroom first, simply so we have a room to sleep in as we do the rest of the house…
I want the bedroom to be the perfect place to go to rest at night, and somewhere were you don’t mind spending an entire Sunday… We are still contemplating if we want to mix up colors on the wall, or just go for one unison color. We have considered having a different color on the wall behind the bed, I like the idea of having a different color or texture on the one wall… Besides that I want a lot of lovely textures; wood, linen and metals… Anyone got any tips on fixing a bedroom please bring it on!?
First of all I love the colors in this room, and then the texture of the wall, via
The row of images and those pillows, bring it on, via
That border of hooks, pretty awesome, via
The bedding, via
The geometry, via
I am craving some linen bedding, via
Go grey, via
Neutral love, via
Adore the bedding, via
I want that Tokyo print, via
Bright and light – perfect, via
Great bedroom grey! via
Love the grey wall, via

Another great wall color, via
Tomorrow we are heading off to yet another viewing – and this time I have a bit of a suspicion this will give me a “I want to live here” feeling – or at least I hope it will… So in the name of home hunting here is one huge inspiration rant devoted to interiors giving me ideas for our new home.
There is simply something about the color combinations that really gets me going in this one, especially the pale blue walls, via
A lovely dressing area wouldn’t be wrong… Not at all! via
I want that cabinet, stat! via
I’ve always loved this MALM dresser from IKEA, I regret leaving the one I had in Oslo when I moved – it’s been a year and I still miss it. So definitely getting another one or maybe two when we get into a new space, and I feel pretty inspired by this idea of just adding some leather to the mix. via
I am always a sucker for anything built-in – like these built-in shelves – bring it on! via
I adore this shower – not only the piping and the amazing shower head, the contrast color in the built-in shelf is also a big plus. Definitely keeping this for inspiration if we have to redo a bathroom in the near future. via
Absolutely loving the color of this kitchen, a perfect hue don’t you think? via
Another IKEA dresser gone DIY wonderful, via
This bedroom just has that perfect feel of comfort and relaxation to it, both images via
That brick wall! via
I love this deck chair, works perfectly outdoors for long summer days and inside with a cozy blanket for those cold winter nights… Sold! via
This bedding, and those stools at the end of the bed, yes please… via
The perfectly cozy kitchen! I just want a kitchen big enough for my stuff… via
Does anyone know where I can get a hold of those chairs? Crave it! via
A perfectly tiny dining nook – I am prepared to live with no space (city living is spaceless living to me), via
That’s it for tonight…
Since we are on the look-out for our new home I thought it would be nice to fill the blog with some of the stuff I want to fill my new home with. So I’ve decided to do a series of posts on brand love, where I showcase some of the brands I’m going to turn to when it comes to filling our new space… This is just going to be a short selection, since it would end in total overload if I was going to go through the entire list of interior hunting ground.
Let’s start the whole shabang with Tine K. Tine K is a Danish lifestyle brand, who seems to know the right balance between cold and warm, to create an amazing atmosphere. You can check out their own home right here. I personally love how this brand draws inspiration from around the home and brings it all together in a cohesive way. Of course we need to bring in to account the fact that the brand rips brilliantly at my Scandinavian roots!
Here is a collection of visual inspiration – the Tine K way.
Inspired yet? I know I am.
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!
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!
It has been a long day, been up since five this morning and running wild. For the need of a simple pick me up before the weekend of fixing this place begins – I need some visual pleasure. So here goes nothing.
Ok, this might just be the most amazing piece of wall brilliance I’ve seen – I need an enormous koala bear on my wall! It’s by Carla Fletcher, now all I need to do is figure out how to get a hold of one… via
I wouldn’t mind spending tomorrow drinking coffee or tea in bed, flipping through magazines just absorbing inspiration, via
These flowers are absolutely gorgeous, gonna try a flower hunt tomorrow, via
Amazing shot of the amazingly beautiful Gemma Ward, add some flowers and you’ve got perfection. via
Think this must be as close to perfect as it gets, you should check out the rest of the images, follow the link! via
Perfectly twisted, via
Common, admit it, you would love having this hanging about in your window sill… via
Monochromatic, unknown source
I have used the term amazeballs on this site, but now let’s use amazewalls! unknown source
Marble and chrome, unknown source
Hello there giraffe, via
Dinner anyone? via
That shade of green, via
The lamp envy, unknown source
What better way to finish this off than trough the utter cuteness and fluff of a bunny? via
Good night! Time to head off to bed and dream of the fluff!
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!
Since it’s valentines tomorrow, and I am spending mine at work, here is a valentines post my way. By my way, I mean in the way of basing it all on color, interiors and other stuff that generally inspires me. So to set you in the mood for tomorrow, here is some red and pink inspiration to get you going.
