The cement stair


We have a cement stair!


It’s still really empty, but i enjoy every step we are taking further away from the mess! We are planning to add a balcony over the entrance with two raw steal pillars and a black iron railing, wall scones/lights are still missing, and some more outdoor furnitures. Also planters and more greens will make a huge difference.




Magical evenings


Our view from the house is so magical and the evenings are so peaceful.

The past days I’ve have been busy with lovely friends and packing up and getting ready for our trip to Greece!!! We are leaving tomorrow and I’m so excited. It’s just a 3h flight from Sweden, so easy peasy. Last time we went to Greece I came home with a ring on my finger – that was ten years ago!

I’ve some friends that will stay in our house while we are gone and some workers will be here as well. And earlier I FaceTimed with babysitter Lisa that had a great time by our pool in Usa! So our houses stay busy as usual :)

My brothers

My amazing brothers and I ♥ I’m very close to both of them, even though mom spread us out :) Jörgen is five years older than me, and I’m thirteen years older than Victor!! Victor has another dad than me and Jörgen, and I’m super close to both my dad and stepdad. One big happy family ;)

That was some short family info!

Carpet it is


To answer yesterday’s question – I choose a carpet! I think it turned out great to mix a soft carpet with all other raw and industrial materials.


And the the steal beam!!! A favorite detail we found under the old ceiling and walls. We added three spotlights on each side, and wrapped the sides with matching steal.



Unfortunately the guy who measurered the carpet, ordered to little… and now it’s vacation time for almost all companies in Sweden. So those five steps have to wait a few weeks…


A radiator cover and some other small details to fix – than it’s all done!! Woop woop!

Before and almost after



And after. Ok it’s not totally complete but welcome to our new master suite! Johan came up with the brilliant idea to get rid of the door opening you can see on the first picture, and down those few steps is now our master bathroom. And the bedroom was a kitchen before :) Need to find that old picture, I know I have it – so a before and after of that will come!


Floor guy in action. Any guess what flooring I choose?!


To be continued!





Hi, it’ Saturday morning here and we are having a countdown to Sweden’s quarter final that starts at 4pm, like most Swedes!! I heard on the news that many people are changing their schedules today so they can watch the game, like a wedding change their time, other sports are changing their game time etc. Pretty awesome and that shows how big it is, and how proud and happy we are about our football team!! I wish them their best today.

The picture above is from one of our bathrooms. For you who have followed me for a bit have seen it before. When I designed this bathroom, I decided to pick up a lot of colors and material from the kitchen – so the walls, vanity, faucet and hardware are totally matching. I think it holds it together and that’s a tip if you are building or renovating. It might also make your planning a bit easier, because there are so many decisions to make on the road.

The kitchen and sports court



Good morning! There is so much I love about this house and the kitchen is number one on my top list.

It’s another sunny day and a busy house. The workers woke me up 6.30 am (say what!!), they needed to move our cars to make space for the cement truck – sports court in the making ↓ And that will probably be number one on the boys top list!



That was today’s rapport from me. Have a great day!!


This is where we stayed on our Stockholm trip – Haymarket! Loved it and I feel that I need to share some photos!! I always gets so inspired when Im staying at nice hotels.

Cool, huh?!

I just have to say Sweden is really delivering an amazing summer (so far!). It’s sunny and hot and I enjoy every second of it! I’m at the moment watching the sunset on our patio, and it’s lovely!!

Also, I have so much to show you from our house, hopefully I get some time to take photos tomorrow.

And finally. Happy 4th of July to all Americans!

Sweden won!!!!


GO SWEDEN!!!!! We won the game and are now ready for the quarterfinal, so cool! We were lucky and got invited to a suite in Tele2 Arena in Stockholm, thanks Pirre!!


It was a loud and happy crowd and it was sold out. We Swedes really love our football, some people call it soccer :)


Sports crazy Eddie-Bo is taking it all in.


Cousin love!! It was thanks to baby Allan we ended up in Stockholm this time, his parents had Eminem tickets, so he needed to hang with someone during the concert!

Now we are back home from our short (2,5 days) but sweet Stockholm trip! More pictures to come tomorrow.


July 1st



Hello Sunday and hello July!!

This staircase will be done in a few days, we are just waiting for the cement truck, can’t wait!! So, I was planning to show some pictures from the inside that I just took… and now I can’t find the memory card. And my American cell phone was just gone for a few days… found it in the boat. Story of my life!!
