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!
Ready for Christmas yet? I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus – mostly because of work heaping up… And suddenly I look at the calendar and christmas is right around the corner… This far I’ve managed to pack a couple of gifts and put some baubles out and about around my home… As far as the christmas feeling goes – I’m in need of some inspiration. Tonight me and the H is heading out for some christmas food – hoping it will tip me over and get me into a holiday feel!
Since it has been a vile since I have shared one of my total inspiration rants with you – today feels perfect – I need to throw some visual input around! And this time it is followed by a mini playlist of the songs I cannot stop listening to these days – I am having one of those months where I cannot stop looking for new bands, new songs to make me dance, to make my cry, to make me lose track of everything going on around me.
The Visual Input
I love the cuteness of these flats! via
I absolutely love the absolute cuteness brought by this beagle! via
I love the idea of what just a fraction of this would do to my home! via
I am falling in love with this cuff & timepiece combo! via
I love how much I love this potted wall! via
I love this image – and just realized I might end up on team body paint now… If it is done like this that is! via
In love with this image… Why? Because this is the kind of image that makes me want to up and leave, travel, run away – even though I do not know where this is – I know I’d love to figure out! via
I love a good seagull photo – but then again – who doesn’t? via
I love how organized some people are – and I also love those kicks! via
I absolutely love how over the top this gown is yet it looks so easy to wear, light as a feather… Oh hello illusionist dress – I want to wrap myself in you! unknown source
I love how this makes me think “welcome to heaven” and also “can I sleep there?” via
I love everything about this; hello, the colour of the hair is perfection and then there is the top knot of a lifetime happening there… I am amazed! via
I love how this actually makes me want to treat myself – need to get this! via
I love pink perfection – and you know it! via
I love how this makes me want to shine a little bit more in my day-to-day life! via
I love how beyond awesome this wedding collection is – want it! via
I love how this makes me want to become a baking woman – and a woman who goes raw! via
The Musical Input
Have a brilliant night and a shamazing tomorrow!
One thing I have opened up to more and more when it comes to my home is some great basket elements… I think my acceptance for something I used to look upon as not my cup of tea stems from my dire need for storage. I might have a soft spot for the more minimalist expression – but when it comes to my own space – well the minimalist is on holiday at the moment. My wardrobe is a mess (flowing over into what could be called the wardrobe tidal wave of the century – or at least the season!), my paper work is all over the place, I don’t feel like I have enough space in my bathroom (might have something to do with me bringing home new beauty products at the same pace as a cat woman brings home stray kitty cats!)… So in tramples my new-found affection towards baskets – in all shapes and forms – as long as it promises to hold my shit in order! As you might have guessed – this post is just as much about teaching myself to love a great basket as to inspire the lot of you to bring baskets into your beloved abodes… So let the inspiration/basket training begin!
I must admit – I am falling for some of these pieces – but still a bit on the fence… I’ll stick to my metal basket from Ferm for now!
Since it’s the start of a new week – why not kick it off with a ton of random inspiration?! Oh and there is a new travel post coming up – on the beautiful Aveiro. . . Just working on the finishing touches.
Now back to the unorganised love of visual inspiration! Because we all deserve it on a long Tuesday… I am heading back to work tomorrow, and I won’t be surfacing till friday – so I have some ready-made greatness lined up – just hoping I’ll get the chance to post one or two of them!
Today – I think I’ll try to keep some sort of focus to it all – but not too narrow – so let’s go for the theme of “interior”. . . Which means I’ll have to find use of those amazing images of gowns and other greatness at some other time – goodie!
I am in love with everything here, the texture of the fabric, the little pop of cord down in the corner and that lamp fixture – need it! unknown source
This is absolute perfection! Simplicity at its most crowded… via
Hello there amazing loaf pan! You want a place to stay? You can come live with me for free, if I get to use you once in a vile! via
I see two things I am craving right now in this image – you might have guessed it – the Moroccan wedding blanket and the pineapple… If someone would get me those two then I’d be pretty pleased – not the worst person in the world to keep happy… via
Add this amazing surfboard to the list of things that would make me crazy happy right now… Do not know where I would put this – does not mean I don’t want it though! via
Hello rustic – want the skull – would look great on my wall… via
Makes me want breakfast in bed – asap! I don’t care if it is 9 in the evening! via
Remember – always share your home with some fresh flowers! via
This amazingly cool summer-house kinda reminds me of a cool doll house… via
Hello haptic chair! via
Still very much in love with that amazing skull by Acne Kids… But then again, who isn’t? via
Oh what a lovely home to enter! via
That’s it for my top-of-the-morning pinterest rant! It is not even 8 in the morning over here… Oh I feel like a drowsy early bird special!
Summer is as good as over – at least my summer holiday – and all I want to do is refresh everything around me. Especially my home! We have a room to do over in the future – we are still working on what to do about it though – maybe a home office is the thing we need to do? I’ve always had a bit of a home office dream – but we will see! I have gathered up some refreshing refresh inspiration to get my interior juices flowing. . .
I wouldn’t go all the way like this – but this image is absolutely amazing though – or what? How opulent and rich is this – I am in love with the chair and the colour of the wall – and maybe even that plush bag! via
This is a more likely refresh for me – a round mirror – I even have one in mind. Will get back to that when it makes its way into our home. I am also interested in knowing who that amazing piece of art in the back is by! Anyone know? via
How about refreshment through a ombre treatment on our walls – and how about letting it match the colour of the chairs! Ps. this may just be the coolest language school ever! via
The monochromatic trend is still going strong – so how about turning our white window frames black? I am not opposed to that idea – gorgeous! via
Bring some new art pieces into our home! Like some of the awesome pieces hanging around this livingroom… via
I am always on the look out for a great display cabinet… And this looks pretty awesome! via
Or how about going crazy pink? Pink walls and ceilings – maybe not! But I must admit there is more than just one thing I am loving in this space. I adore the sofa, even though it is not my choice of colour, I love the combination of the pink with the amazing green in the art – and then there is that amazing pendant lamp and the wooden floors! Not much to complain about… unknown source
I am in love with this beautiful piece from IKEA of all places – and I want it for my hallway – but I can’t seem to find it! I need it – so I hope it shows up here asap! My hallway really needs a refreshment – and this will be the perfect piece… via
Don’t get too excited about this one – we are not turning the other room into a nursery – we are not having a child… But the thing is, this nursery has the perfect colour pallet! And I could incorporate a lot of the details of this nursery into our very much grown up home, no problem! via
Now this is the easiest one to me – I have pledged something to myself – that is bringing more fresh flowers into my home! Wouldn’t mind if they looked like this… via
And when all the home refreshment is done – this is what I’m gonna do – lay down and sleep awkwardly like a cat – knowing I am just as awesome as this cat! via
That’s it for now – hope you’ve enjoyed it!
