THE NURSERY CORNER

As I have mentioned before, I am dreaming of a separate space for the Baby Bean to call his own… Right now he has a corner of his own in our bedroom, and I thought I’d share some images from this space. To be honest, even if we had a separate room for him at the moment, we would still have him with us in our bedroom. I am not ready for nightly sleep separation just yet… But I would love to have a room to fix up for him for the time when we are ready for that separation.

Here are some images from our bedroom/his nursery corner…

NURSERY1

1. A Bloomingville wooden pendant lamp 2. We’ve used some wooden crates as tiny wall shelves for small toys and books 3. A DIY wooden beads and tassel something, simply for decor and entertainment for the Bean 4. A framed bear we picked up for next to nothing at Søstrene Grene

NURSERY2

1. We’ve put up some wall stickers over his crib 2. His hedgehog bedding from Living and one of his many blankets  3. Some wooden bunnies from Søstrene Grene and my personal favorite; a wooden rattle made by my uncle 4. One of our personal favorites from his space is this pillow from Ferm Living we got as a baby gift from a friend of ours

NURSERY3

1. A DIY garland with wooden beads and tassels 2. At the moment the Bean is sleeping on a lovely uncut sheepskin rug, it is his number one place to rest 3. A lovely crib toy the H picked up at Igloo Kids in Islington 4. Bedside lamps in copper.

So there you have it, a few pieces from the Beans corner…

SUNDAY SHARING

Here comes another full on inspiration gathering from the week that has passed. This week has been much like the weeks before, quiet and filled with the Baby Bean and all his ups and downs. Luckily there is 98% ups on this front, so we’re as happy as can be. I am a restless person at heart, but I am surprisingly comfortable with the slow-paced life I’m living these days… We are still working on our plans to fix up the kitchen, planning future trips and just enjoying the slow days with the Baby Bean.

Now, over to the inspiration, enjoy!

CHARMING SWEDISH APARTMENT

We still have a lot of things we want to do around the house, like the kitchen, the bathroom and maybe even fixing the entire downstairs… So whenever I get a moment free from feedings, diaper changes and cuddles I try to hunt for fix-up inspiration. Today I came across this amazingly charming Swedish apartment over at Alvhem Mäkleri, and it absolutely did the trick. Some of my favorites from this home is the wall colors, the exposed brick walls, the lovely wooden floors, the harlequin wallpaper in the hallway and the concrete top in the bathroom. Putting this in our home inspiration folder asap, time to bring a bit of quirk to the table!

SUNDAY SHARING

Another week has passed, and here are some of my favorite finds from this weeks gathering.

This week has been a good week, especially for the Baby Bean, he is finally taking to food in the right way and is gaining weight like a champ. He’s also had his first trip to the city this weekend, he slept through most of it, and he is becoming more active every day. The last bit there also keeps me quite busy, but I am thoroughly enjoying this little mans company. To my surprise I am becoming quite the fan of mornings these days, and it’s all thanks to the Baby Bean. Before I used to love long sleepy mornings, now my mornings are long, but I do not get a lot of sleep during this time. Instead I spend my mornings in bed with the Bean, listening to music, basically just relaxing together with the little man… Wouldn’t change it for the world!

We are getting a few routines in place these days, finally! So if I am not mistaken I will get more time to focus on some creative bits on the side soon, like putting some focus towards this house! We are planning a kitchen upgrade in not too long, we’ve come as far as buying paint for the cabinets. . . That’s about it so far, but I am excited about what’s to come! On this creative end this will have to do for now, enjoy this weeks Sunday Sharing!

SUNDAY SHARING

We have finally found some sort of routine around here, so today I am finally adding a post to this site! The Baby Bean is three weeks tomorrow, and motherhood has taken me by surprise. I feel like you can read 50 books, prepare every inch of your being and your space – still nothing can really prepare you for life with a newborn. The thing that has surprised me the most, besides all the tiny baby kinks {like what to do when you don’t produce enough milk, how many diapers a baby can go through in a short amount of time… and so on}, is how content I feel… I am living in a constant lack of sleep, I haven’t seen the outside of our home for more than an hour at a time, I am lacking my regular routines and the concept of long showers is long gone – still, I am happier than I’ve ever been before…

Here goes nothing, a Sunday Sharing post – from me to you… I’m hoping it won’t take me three more weeks to add another post, but we’ll see, Baby Bean Hiatus Mode is still going strong over here…

FRESH HOME INSPIRATION

We’ve decided we have a deadline on the home, basically the due date of the baby bean… Which is a bit of a freak out moment for me, since I am a procrastinator by nature – at least when it comes to taking inspiration from my mind and putting it down on paper, then the follow-up. The bedroom is close to done, we’ve managed to decide on how we will add the baby bean to this space. Freak-out-mode has led to some good though, I am entering nesting mode like a champ. I’ve suddenly turned into the organizer from hell, everything should be organized, so that everything is simple when we have the baby bean to care for. Must be a struggle for the H, coming home to me every day, with a new idea for something that needs to be done ASAP. My main goal at the moment is sorting out a storage space downstairs, then there is the creation of a brilliant workspace for the two of us… I am getting quite tired of spending my time working on my laptop from the sofa or the dining room table… Will be a heavy load of work to deal with after NYE, but at least – I will be prepared!

How much do you want a nice chunky bench for your dining room right now? I’m feeling a bench crave coming on, via

This is a brilliant hallway setup, that chair, the art on the floor, the hooks on the wall… Inspiration bank! via

Art wall extravaganza! Absolutely beautiful, via

Kitchen love, that counter top is high on my kitchen to do list… unknown source

Perfection, via

I have promised to put my nesting craze to good use and work on the daddy gift of the century, the finishing of a great workspace for both me and the H… Right now I am in the mode of inspiration hunt + figuring out how and where to create it… I am loving the use of IKEA shelves as storage, need to look into these – give extra space on top as well since they are not floor to ceiling. via

Always craving the kubus candle holder, via

Suddenly I am feeling a black door crave coming on, via

Life in black and white… via

The one and only, the lamp, via

Kitchen love, great combination of black and white tiles… Mostly craving that chair though! via

Let the sunshine in, amazing windows! And the lamps in the ceiling, crave! via

There are three things I am craving in this space – that sofa, that amazing lamp and those amazing picture frames… via

I’ll take the four-legged babies out for a play in the snow now, hoping your December days are filled with beautiful snow days!

BACK ONLINE – INSPIRATION RANT

We have finally gotten the internet in our new home fixed, so here I am – back on the inspiration trail! We are making great progress here at the moment, we’ve painted what needs to be painted on the second floor (our main floor), we’ve got most of the basic furniture sorted (we have somewhere to sit, somewhere to sleep and somewhere to eat) – so now it is all about sorting out what we are still in the need of and also organizing all of our boxes full of mess. Since I’ve been without the internet for a month or so, I haven’t had the access to my general source of inspiration – so here comes an inspiration rant to make up for this month. To be honest, we are desperately in need for inspiration as well, we are at that point when it is all about the details and the pieces of furniture we didn’t even know we needed. Here goes nothing, inspiration time!
