I am back to dreaming of creating a home just the way I want it. And today I am roaming through kitchen inspiration. So this is some of my inspiration for my future kitchen in my future dream fixer-upper-home.
There is a lot I find inspiring by this space – mainly the floor and those amazing windows… Windows like that and a lovely patio space to enjoy my meals when weather allows me is one of my interior dreams. And that pop of bright red on the pipe – is another level of interior shamazing! via
One of my kitchen wishes is space! Space enough to keep my hobby of looking for great dinnerware and lovely vintage cups going strong and also space enough to share the kitchen with other people. As I get older I truly start believing that the kitchen is the heart of the home – and I want a kitchen spacious enough to cook with my friends, family and loved ones. And I wouldn’t mind a chalkboard wall in my kitchen, like the one in the background, for notes, art and recipes. via
This kitchen is to me absolute perfection. Obviously it is white and grey with lovely wood floors – but I have fallen in love with the combination of different tiles. I absolutely adore the fishbone tiles – I wouldn’t mind them in my future kitchen – but then again; who would? via
I adore the raw wood in this space – which fits so well with the colour of the tiles and the driftwood shelving. I must say I find this space quite charming, and it seems like it would fit a crowd!
And we’re back on the tiles! The polygon tiles. I am absolutely head over heels for these tiles, being the tile lover that I am this might not come as great shock. And that pendant light – anyone know where I can get one of those? via
The breakfast bench in this place is absolutely gorgeous. I love the worn down leather combined with the lovely pattern of the cushion. The wood is gorgeous as well. via
The glass divide in this home is lovely. I have always had an idea of recycling some lovely industrial windows in my dream space, and as a well in my kitchen wouldn’t be the worst idea. Combine it with a door and you can separate the kitchen from the rest of the home without losing the feeling of space. via
Another great use of glass in a kitchen, making a mini inside garden behind glass walls. I would love this in my own home – wouldn’t know where to start though… via
This kitchen is absolutely lovely, it just feels inviting and cozy. I love the greens, who doesn’t love a bit of fresh florals in a space? And that window right above the kitchen sink would definitely make doing the dishes more of a lovely experience. Looking out on the life outside – day dreaming. via
I am as usual falling for the exposed brick – but this kitchen also is swoonable because it gives a great feel of space. Perfect city kitchen! via
Yes – the concrete is something to fall in love with – I know I am falling for it. . . But my main thing in this image is the pig! How cute is that piece of piglet art? I would probably have issues cooking pork, still – amazing. via
The whimsical in me is swooning over this one. Pops of colour, pops of typography, pops of Eames – and on the top of it all – that table! That table is proof of how imperfection creates perfection. via
One of my great wishes for a great spacious kitchen is a perfectly tiny and perfectly cozy breakfast corner! This one right here seems pretty perfect. There is something romantic about having a tiny corner space for enjoying the start of the day… via
The combination of marble and colours in this space is brilliant. The cutlery in the glass vase is pretty perfect – would love have a vase of pretty cutlery in my own kitchen. via
I used to be opposed to wallpapers – but my opinion has changes – and I am time after time finding inspiration in homes filled with wallpaper. And now I am getting excited by wallpaper in any shape and any form – especially in the form as kitchen decor. I would love a great wallpaper wall in my future kitchen…
I know I often bring up industrial greatness on this blog. But common! This industrial open space kitchen is pure greatness… Look at that dining table – and I do adore that lovely tiny neon sign action going on in the background. via
I’ve always wanted loads of open shelves in my dream kitchen. And I have totally fallen for these great shelves from Ikea – so the price is nice as well… I have this image in my head that if I have open shelves in my kitchen not only can I display all my lovely finds, but at the same time it will make me more organized… via
Adore this mini wash it nook – but mostly – those tiles! via
Why not get inspired by a coffee shop? That pop of yellow isn’t wrong! via
Again – this is all about the great display storage… I think I might be a person who would start the planning of a kitchen from the storage… All the other stuff will come along in its own time. via
That’s it for today! There will be more kitchen at a later time – and I will probably be running through every room of my future dream fixer-upper-home.
A pop of yellow to brighten up the day…

It is raining sideways – and I am dreading the next outing – which is about to happen any minute now – since I cannot tell my dog to keep it in… I have considered the option of trying to teach her to pee out the window – but I am a Norwegian – I can handle some sideways-up-your-skirt kinda rain! To motivate myself and bring a smile to my gloomy face I have put together a collection of yellow colour pops! Enjoy…

This is my second “home envy” post – and I feel like this is a keeper. I have a tendency to come across gorgeous homes that makes me wish I could change mine in one or two brushstrokes…
Today I’ll give you a look into the gorgeous home of Lizzy Courage. She is an art-director and designer from Berlin, and her home is a brilliant mix between cold tones of grey and amazing pops of colours like pink and yellow. I am smitten – have a look and see for yourself:

Today I am finally getting in that “summer” mood. I have finished my final exams, grades are back, I can consider myself an educated human being – mostly I am frolicking in the idea of no more student life – that meaning my finances will finally reach a good place once more. . . I am having my first proper summer holiday in 7 years – even if it is only for 2 weeks it feels amazing – so next week I am heading to Italy! The sun is giving of some heat in my cold home country, and I have bought a bikini – and even a cover-up. So summer is truly here. . . And in this mood I am getting drawn to colors, I am usually more of a “give me some black, some white and fill in the blanks with some shades of gray” kind of person. But right this moment I am craving some yellow!

The best way to end it would be with this bookend. Every time I (M) come across it I get overly excited. I do not know why, maybe it is the fact that it is a square – since I do like squares, maybe it is because of the pop of yellow it would give to a shelf – yellow is a color you can not look at without feeling some sort of joy, or is it because it brings me back to my careless childhood where every story ended in the simplest way – “the end”, or maybe it is the lovely price range and the simplicity of the message. . . The end is really the end. Whatever the reason, it is on the crave list.
