Flowers and snow


Fresh flowers from Papa Joes!






These long candle sticks are back in the living room, from CB2 and the big blueish/smoke hurricanes are from Restoration Hardware.


Hi from a snowy Birmingham!! It has been snowing a LOT, and yesterday all schools were closed -snow day is what they call it. It surprises me every time. I think that happened one time of all my school years in Sweden :) But, I’m not complaining. Me and the boys had a fun day. We went bowling and went to see the new movie Pete the Rabbit! It was so good and we were all laughing a lot. My favorite James Corden, from Carpool Karaoke, is the voice of Pete :)

Today we had hockey early in the morning, than some of my girlfriends with kiddos came over, and now I’m saying hi to you while the boys are sledding, and tonight we are going out for dinner and drinks!!

Before and after


From our Swedish home! I love this area with the original fireplace even though it went thru a big facelift and we got great storage with doors and handles that match the kitchen. And very special to me -my grandma’s chair that I got reupholstered (omklädd).

Now over to before:


Hard to see in the picture but the ceiling was very low. Did I keep anything? Yes I did! The tile floor and the inside of the fireplace.


Work in progress.


Details -Brass candle holder and candles from HilkeInDesign and vase from Iems in Jönköping.


I’m so happy we could open up the ceiling, expose the beam (that now is stained/betsadand add spotlights!


Hope you like to see some before and after pics!

My temporary lounge


After the kids were in bed tonight I enjoyed some me time right here! Well needed after a weekend with full house!

On the shopping list for our living room -sofa and tv. But for right now I took what we had and made it to a lounge area. The rug, table and the chair to the right belong to the guest house. The grey chair to the right used to be my grandma’s, so that piece feels extra special to me. With some paint and new fabric it looks like new! The two ones to the left are from Newport, that I ordered last summer… and now when unpacked them I realized they’ve sent one in wrong color… another dark grey is on the way!

I’m so in love with this house. Can’t wait until everything is done though!! Waiting is not my thing… hehe… I’ve to show you the exterior soon, then you’ll understand what I’m talking about!

The bed is calling. Wait. Eddie-Bo’s bed is calling. Nope, we still don’t have a big one for me and hubby :) Our to do list is looooong!
