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!

BEDROOM BLISS

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

Love the grey wall, via

Great tones, via

Love the photo wallpaper, maybe this would be a nice idea for the bedroom, via

Another great wall color, via

FRIDAY INSPIRATION RANT

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.

Enjoy…

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…

BRAND LOVE – TINE K HOME

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 hereI 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.

Enjoy!
