From Eddie-Bo’s new room


If you have $15, a screwdriver and need a smaller shelf – take a trip to Ikea! No it’s not the most sturdy piece of furniture I’ve seen, but I really like it!


Old favorite globe from Target, and the sign that says ‘Here lives a hockey pro’ is stolen from hubby’s closet.


Metall letter from The Land of Nod.


Baskets are always a good idea, I’ve had these for a long time. And a peek from the new bed that finally arrived while all guests were here. So now when we got home from our trip, was the first night for Eddie-Bo to sleep in it! Baskets and bed – also from The Land of Nod. Looking at the picture… I might paint the legs black… and I see some things are left from the tag :)


And why not put Jimmy Howard in the window. More sport things for the walls is on Eddie-Bo’s wish list, and more lights are on my list!

Big blue velvet pillow from Dirty Linen – It was love at the first sight when I found it last summer!


Mirror and the cute cat – from Newport.


Oliver’s favorite, the solar system- I found this one at Esq in Linköping. Google and you’ll find many retailers. Picture – Mrs Mighetto.


Another cute picture from Mrs Mighetto. Fyi, they launch brand new prints today!

That was some pictures from Oliver’s Swedish room.

I wish you a fantastic weekend! We (read Eddie-Bo) have lots of hockey on our schedule, but in between all practices we will enjoy the amazing warm weather. It’s suppose to be around 80F/28C!! How nice!!

Sport crazy Eddie-Bo


Eddie-Bo said -I don’t want toys in my new room, just sport things! So, he was thrilled when I asked him if he wanted to have his dad’s hockey things, like his very first Tre Kronor jersey and Stanley Cup picture…

Vintage lockers// bought from my friend Glitzy.     Blue velvet ottomans//  EM


He also asked if the desk could be in front of the window, which was a perfect idea if you ask me! The designer in him must come from me, hehe.

Concrete side table// Jysk   Box// Åhlens   Gold helmet// from when Johan won the World Championship!

The picture is of Johan at 7 years old (wearing Redwings gloves!) with his dad.


Eddie-Bo is dreaming of winning the Stanley Cup one day and he’s probably his dad’s biggest fan!!

Still things that need to get done in here. All pictures are waiting to be hung and on the shopping list are a bed frame and a shelf.  Blinds and drapes are ordered!


Night time in Eddie-Bo’s room

Bunk bed, table & chairs// IKEA    Rug, curtains, play table// Restoration Hardware   Basket// Land and Nod   String light// Target



Finally I found the battery charger for my camera :) While Eddie-Bo was reading some books I cleaned up his room and took a few pictures. I love the string light that is hanging on the curtain rod, it gives a perfect cozy light in the evenings now when it’s getting darker outside. And the pumpkin light is a little cute!

The boys are now asleep and they were tired after today’s school and playdate, that included swimming! It’s been 77F/25C today, lovely!

I’ll check in later with some photos from last night when I went to Red Wings home opener game!

Kids hanger from Hang on Hangers.
Aunt Nina found this bed on a flea market for 4$!! And grandpa was kind to paint it.

We are on a very spontaneous road trip, that we planned late last night. Johan’s sister with family are coming too. Today we’ll visit Johan’s dad and tomorrow we are all going to Barnens gård (The children’s farm), a great place for families. They have a waterpark, animals, playground, tons of bouncy houses and more.

Have a wonderful weekend!!


Playroom in the basement

1G6A1999.jpgBasket// Target

I saw this basket a couple of month ago. Last night while we were playing in the basement I realized it would be perfect for our wood blocks (which is a gigantic jenga, but we use it most of the time to build tracks and houses), so I took a quick trip to Target.



It’s impossible to buy one thing when you go there… I also found these boxes, wood letters and animals. The stars and string lights I bought long time ago, from Target as well, but they are still in store.


Play tent (away team’s locker room if you ask Eddie-Bo) // Restoration hardware   Hopscotch rug, chair, play table, toy boxes //Land of Nod

Playhouse// Land of Nod


I got rid of some broken toys and put some other toys in a box, a good idea to keep some toys out of sight and then the kids get excited to see them coming back!

Gotta go, Pilates coming up and then I need to continue to plan for the renovation!

We started the morning with Eddie-Bo’s hockey practice, followed by meeting with the counter top guy at my renovation house. After that we’ve just been chilling at home. Sushi and a trip to the Joe is on tonight’s schedule.

I hope you are having a great Saturday!

I’m in love

How lucky am I to have this little cutie pie in the house?! Nellie, you can stay here as long as you want to (including your awesome parents) :)

The light was not great for taking pictures today. There was a thunderstorm and the rain was pouring down. Kind of cozy though and I now have a little “fall feeling” even though it’s still super hot outside.

All three kids are asleep, the rain is pouring again, the candles are lighted and the house is also clean! A new amazing cleaning company was here today. Yeah!
Now, cozy time for me and Lisa. They guys wonder if we ever can be quiet? No.
