Details about the Master suite


I slutet på sommaren kom dessa underbara sammetsgardiner på plats, lite nougat-beiga i färgen. Mysigt för rummet och bra för mörkläggning och insyn så klart (jag har mörlggningsgardiner bakom i samma ton) Extra bra när vi vakande upp med byggare utanför fönstren hela sommaren ;) Gardiner är sydda och installerade av Lamp och Gardinateljen i Linköping.

The velvet drapes got installed at the end of the summer. It gives a cozy feeling to the room, block out the light (we even have block outs behind the velvet in the same beige tone) and it is great for privacy, especially since we woke up with builders outside the windows all summer ;)


Fortfarande lite grejer och detaljer som ska på plats här. Elementskydd är nu beställt av vår smed, tavlor ska upp, har fel storlek på sängkappan och vi har ingen sänggavel eller sängbord än.

There are still some details that are missing here. Radiation covers are ordered thru our smith, want some pictures on the walls, that grey bed cover is the wrong size, and we don’t have a headboard or any side tables next to the bed.


Garderoberna är platsbyggda av Falerumkök och målade i Beckers Tjäle. En superfin lite kall beige ton. Långa handtag från Buster & Punch. Dom är genomgående i hela huset, fast i olika storlekar. Överkastet från Classic Collection, så fint och himla färgglatt för att va mig :)

The closets are custom made by Falerumkök, and painted in Beckers Tjäle – a super nice colder beige tone. Closet bars from Buster & Punch, that we have thru the whole house ,but in different sizes. The bed cover is from Classic Collection. Love it and a very colorful choice for me  :)


Här fick mattläggarna lite att bita i när trappan skulle kläs in! Den är så gossig att gå på.
Jo, jag tog visst ingen bild på gardinerna på denna sida. Men dom kan dras ut hela vägen så jag får lägga dom lite på trappen då, men det gör jag ju bara när det är dax att sova. Ni ser skenan i taket.

It’s so cozy for the feet to walk on this carpet! I forgot to take a picture of the drapes on this side, but they cover all the windows when they are pulled out at night time. I have to have them rest on the steps, but that’s ok. You can see the rod in the ceiling.



Aningens trångt här, så vi valde att göra sex garderobsdörrar istället för fyra som det var ritat först. Blev bra då dörrarna blir lite smalare.
Väggarna är putsade och jag valde att inte måla dom, utan behålla den råa betongen.

It’s very narrow as you can see. We decided to do six doors instead of four that was the first plan. That way the doors are more narrow.
The walls are raw stucco, that I choose not to paint.


Det va lite telefonbilder från vår master suite i Brokind. Har börjat skriva ett inlägg som heter Future plans. Kommer nog upp imorrn.

That was some pics from the phone of our Master suite in Brokind. I’ve started to write a post named Future plans. Will probably come up tomorrow.

Part of our master suite


Här har jag aldrig suttit ska jag va ärlig och säga, men tycker denna liggstol fyller ut rummet plus att rottingen ger värme och kontrast till marmorväggen, gråa väggarna och dom mörkgröna gardinerna. Jag fick stolen, som är från Ikea, när våra älskade vänner Jocke och Lisa flyttade hem till Sverige. Jag använde den oxå när jag stylade mina två house flips.

To be honest I’ve never sat in this chaise but, I think it fills out the room and gives it a warm contrast to the marble, grey walls and dark green curtains. I got the chaise when our lovely friends Joakim and Lisa moved to Sweden. I also used it when I was styling my two house flips.




Solen strålade in så fint här idag så var tvungen att ta lite bilder.

The sun rays peeked in so beautiful here today so I had to take some photos.


Denna marmorvägg med – bra sätt att dela upp ett stort rum, och perfekt ställe att ha tvn på. Vi har ju en på varje sida… Har ni tv i sovrummet förresten? Inte bra enligt feng shui, men ett måste för oss! Älskar att lägga mig tidigt och titta på serier. Eller när barnen va små och vaknade tidigt, då var det mysigt, att dom kunde titta på Nicke Nyfiken och mamman kunde sova lite extra :)

This marble wall – perfect to divide a big room and also a great place to have the tv. Do you have a tv in your bedroom, btw? I know it’s not good for the feng shui, but it’s a must for us. I love going to bed early and watching shows. Or when the kids were little and we could snuggle in the mornings, meaning the kids were watching Curious George and the momma could sleep a bit extra :)

Home with sick kiddos


Är hemma med två febriga barn idag. Är det ok att säga att jag tycker det är lite mysigt?! Vill ju så klart inte att dom ska va sjuka, men vi har rätt så gosigt med att spela spel, titta på film, äta våfflor och glass så här en vanlig tisdag.
Och samtidigt håller jag fortfarande på att tvätta. Hotel Franzen har omvandlats till Franzen’s Laundry Service!

Both kiddos are home from school with fevers today. Is it ok to say that I think it’s a little bit cozy?! Of course I don’t want them to be sick, but we are having a nice time together playing board games and watching movies, eating waffles and ice cream on a regular Tuesday.
And at the same time I’m still doing laundry – Hotel Franzen has turned into Franzen’s Laundry Service!


Lite bilder från vår Master suite, som jag fullkomligt älskar. Soffan här är den skönaste vi har och perfekt för att titta på tv i, läsa böcker men även att sova i. Oliver och jag hamnade här inatt, med hans nya fina dinosaurie-täcke, som dessutom matchar detta rum!

Pics from the sitting area in our Master suite. Love this space. The sofa is so comfy and perfect for watching tv, reading books, or even sleeping on. Oliver and I slept here last night with his new dinosaur duvet cover, that btw matches the colors in here :)


Har ju flyttat ner det svarta borde till vardagsrummet, så kör med puffen och en bricka just nu.

I moved down the black sofa table to the living room, so right now I’m using this ottoman with a tray on it.

From the master bedroom




Finally my new drapes are up! I think I bought them in October :) They are from Ikea, and they come in two different lengths, and none of those were perfect, so I had them tailored. I have a sewing machine myself, but I chose to be lazy in this case and pay for the job, hehe! Easy peasy.

24h in the bed


Hello from the bed! Känner mig lika hängig som den där blomman… Im feeling as poorly as that flower… I think the flu hit me yesterday. I couldn’t even watch tv. Then you know you are sick for real, haha. Compared to that I’m much better today and the tv is now on :) I’ve isolated myself in our bedroom though, I do not want the rest of the family to get sick.


We finally got rid of our cement mattress (for real worst mattress ever, my ribs were hurting when I tried to sleep on it). Now we got a lovely one from SleepNumber. Perfect for us, with a control I pick my number and hubby his, from scale 1-100, from soft to firm. Smart! Also new in here is the picture, from Saatchi Art.

I hope you a staying healthy!!

Lots of marble


There is so much I love about our American home. This marble fireplace is one of my favorites. It’s a real statement piece in our master suite, that divides the sitting area from the bedroom area. I also love how it matches the marble we have in our master bathroom, kitchen and butlers pantry. It puts it together if you know what I mean!

Oh my. I’m so tired. Last night was great and it got pretty late. And today has been a busy day with hockey and skiing. I took the boys all by myself skiing, just about 40 minutes away from home. Puh, lots of work but we had so much fun. No meltdowns, high five! They did great and I’m so proud of them. You never know, next time might be different :)

Now→ bed and an episode of Vikings!

My chill spot


This is my favorite spot to end the day if I watch tv, that is part of our bedroom. It’s been looking the same for a long time though and I’m about to change a few things. Fun!

But before I land in the sofa right here with some raw chocolate balls, I’m planning to go thru the boys closets. We have a Mexico vacation coming up next week (oh yeah!!!!) so I need to see what still fit my growing boys!

Fireplace and candles


When I’m not at concerts, which is pretty often (three the last three weeks!), I’m mostly ending my evenings right here in our master suite, in front of the fireplace and lighted candles. Now it’s time for me to watch Wahlgrens Värld, a Swedish reality show that I love!

White x 3



In love!! Today I got this cool oversized picture delivered to my house by the photographer herself Courtney Parrie Green, website here.

So at the moment I’m just sitting here with a cup of coffee and enjoying the picture!

I was first thinking of a black frame, but so happy I decided to do the white. The handprints on the wall is from the artist Oliver Franzen… he stuck his finger in my scented candle and decided make some art on the wall!!


Old white jeans from Frame and white nails, polish- Essies Marshmallow.

Got to to! Tonight we are going downtown to see The Chainsmokers!! Woop woop!!

Btw. I ended up watching Lion last night. What a great and touching movie. I was exhausted after all crying,  but really a fantastic movie!!


New nightstands!


New in, zink nightstands from Restoration Hardware!! I’m in love :) I just sent two pictures for framing, that I think will look amazing here on the wall. Also, still need to get rid of the boxspring to lower the bed…


These details, love!!

I heard Aloe Vera plants are good for your sleep. And look closer to the picture, it’s Johan 7 years old, in Redwings gloves :)


Oliver’s school was cancelled today, so we are home playing at the moment, cozy!! Later I’m invited for a tour of Little Ceasars Arena, Detroit’s brand new fabulous home arena for hockey and basketball, that is suppose to be done in the fall. Will be cool to see such a big construction site!

Later babes!
