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
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!
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!
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

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!
