The new kitchen is almost done

We are slowly moving in to the main house. It’s not styled, not all done, still very empty, but we are getting there! I’m beyond happy about our new kitchen! (And I feel it deserves better pictures, but I was in a rush).

What a productive day. Started with a meeting with our contractor. After that I went into town (Linkoping) by myself, and in two hours I bought pots, pans, coffee maker, knifes and other things you can’t live without in a kitchen! I found showers for a bathroom and a faucet for the laundry, I picked up carpet samples, did some speed shopping at my favorite interior design store Esq, and picked out tile for a bathroom. I knew what I was looking for, and it happened to be right inside the door. That decision took me about 10 seconds, haha, they told me that was a record :)

In the afternoon we left our new house and drove to our other house in Smaland. It feels so nice and relaxing to be here where everything is done! The kids were also happy to see their toys and Eddie-Bo ran from the car to the sports court and started to play street hockey!

While the kids played my amazing mother in law came over, and gave me reflexology, how nice?! And it was well needed for my achy feet, I haven’t been still since… Miami I think :)

The house is finally all done!!

I’m so happy about that, but I’m mad at the weather. I was planning to take photos yesterday, but it was so dark. And today it’s even worse and rainy!! But I did my best.

The wall is now gone between the kitchen and the old dining room. That made the kitchen much bigger plus I made a mud hall (groventre) instead of keeping the dining room.

More to come!!

The house will be on the market tomorrow!

Easter decoration! Love my new eggs that was a gift from Sweden (will update from where when I know…) We just got home from an Egg hunt and a meeting with Easter Bunny :) Ans the weather is amazing, so we been outside all day long, love it!!

Now it’s time for me to get ready for the last visit to the Joe! A big good bye party is waiting after the game, plus a party for our friend Henrik Zetterberg that will play his 1000 game tonight, how cool!! And oh my, it was so awesome to watch Eddie-Bo play last night, yes I cried!! He says he scored, but I need to look at the review, it was a lot of sticks involved in that moment :)

Have a wonderful Sunday peeps!!

The new kitchen

From my renovation house and the new kitchen! It’s so close to be all done. Can’t wait to get the hood, stove and fridge/freezer installed and to get rid of all mess and dust!!

The tile is up!! My first plan was to do white herringbone (fiskbensmönster), but decided to save some money on that and ended up with this instead, that I also think looks really good!

Cabinets and handles// Ikea   Countertop// Zodiac quarts, color London Sky (kvartskomposit) I can really recommend quarts if you are redoing your kitchen. Not sensitive at all, compare to real marble, that stains and scratches so easy.

The details, LOVE!!! Here I splurged some money though ;) These are the pieces I had to wait for so long, but it was worth the wait, I’m so happy with the result. Love costume made pieces!

French tulips

Lovely French tulips!! Hubby actually surprised me with these, thank you! Talk about spring feelings, even though it was snowing again last night. I’m so done winter!!!

If someone wonders why we have two faucets right there…one is regular water and the otherone is filtered water. I just can’t get used to the regular tap water here, it tastes like pool water to me! And thanks to this we don’t need to buy lots of bottled water, which is better for the environment!

Happy weekend

Hello from a shiny kitchen! The cleaning ladies were here today, love it! I planned to check in here earlier, but I was busy having fun with the kids. Oliver has no school on Fridays, only a speech lesson, and after we picked up Eddie-Bo from school, we went for lunch at Panera Bread, and then off to Detroit Kid City, a fun place where they’ve built up a miniature city with bank, post office, fire station and more fun stuff!

Now it’s time for bed and some sweet dreams, maybe Christian Grey will show up :) I just got home from the movies, watched Fifty Shades Darker!

Happy weekend my lovely followers!!
