Hello from Birmingham, our town 30 min outside Detroit, Usa. It feels good to be back and I’m looking forward to routines again. I have none of that during the summer, same every year, hehe. But here comes more pictures from our master bathroom in Sweden as promised!
These lovely faucets are from Brizo, that I bought in the Usa… Not to recommend AT ALL. Shame on me for shipping those overseas plus it was a pricey custom tax (alltså tullavgift)… but sometimes you loose your sense when you fall in love :)
I’ll repeat some info:
Cabinets are custom made//Falerumkök and same with the double sink//BetongDesign Handles//Buster and Punch.
LOVE all that. But I think I’ll change the lights (from Ifö) I used the same ones in another bathroom and it turned out perfect, but I think they are too small for this big mirror. Also, not super happy with the color choice, too minty, I might paint that to a beige color to match the raw concrete walls in the bedroom. But I’ll wait till I have new lights, that might change the tone for the better. These are actually the only things in the whole house I’m not 100% happy with. And I think thats ok, since I’ve planned most of the house from Usa :)
Hello double showers. The shower heads are from// Tapwell. I decided to use same tile that looks like wood, on the floor and the shower wall. From Megakakel i Linköping. Instead of a regular drain I used -Unidrain. How nice?!
The steps go up to our bedroom. Not sure if you can see, but instead of a door we used a frosted sliding door (that also matches the shower door) from Rapps glas. So either you see the steps or the toilet. That was a lot of info, too much?!! Hope you’ll like it!
Also peeps. I think I will start writing in Swedish too?! So both in Swedish and English. What do you think?
My last days in Sweden was really busy and I realized on the airplane that I forgot to take photos of our new laundry room. Since Johan was still there, I hired him to do the job!
He didn’t clean and made it perfect blog friendly though ;) Lots of building dust and dirt, and this was before the electrician was there to do his job. But anyway I’m so happy about the result!! Shelfs, a rod and lights are still left to install.
Beautiful custom cabinets – Falerumkök (Painted in Beckers Tjäle) Handels- Buster and punch (same as in the kitchen) Faucet – Tapwell Tile – from Megakakel Linköping (klinker alltså, fast det ser ut som trä).
I’m addicted to Game of Thrones. Time for two (maybe three) more episodes before bedtime!
Before, not really my style :)
We decided to use a smaller window and add a shower in here.
After: (I forgot my good camera in the Småland house… oh well…)
Cabinet// Falerumskök Cement top// Made of Jens our builder Sink// Villeroy&Boch Marble floor// Kolmårdsmarmor Hexagon tile// Megakakel i Linköping Light// LampeGras Faucet// Tapwell Handles// BusterAndPunch Mirror// hmm could be from Esq in Linköping…
It’s not a big bathroom, so these glass doors works great. The shower is from Tapwell. The drain (from Unidrain) is missing a piece of the marble, it will almost be invisible when that piece is installed.
Details! I use a Mateus coffee cup as a vase. I love the bubble design, but it feels like the bubbles are poking your lip when you are drinking from it :). The towel is an old favorite from Missoni. Hooks from ‘Granit’ I think, and the zebra is from Jonathan Adler.
Two of the walls are painted with lime paint/kalkfärg -Jotun vallmofrö (NCS S4502-Y), a warm greige color. The walls are also sealed because it’s a bathroom.
Couldn’t be happier about the result!! And did you see the lovely view from here on my Instagram @cissifranzen?
One thing I like to do when I design and plan, is to repeat some colors, and details in more then one room. For example this bathroom and the kitchen has the same paint colors, handles, faucet and even the wall light is the same. And the green marble floor we also have in the foyer. I think it gives a calm feeling, and also it helps a lot when you pick out all the new stuff. That’s not the easiest, there is so much beautiful things to choose from!!
Kitchen// Falerumkök Hood// Fjäråskupan Range Hood//Ilve Window// Preconal Handles// Buster&Punch Fridge & Freezer// Gaggenau Floor// Dinesen Countertop// Silestone Faucet// Tapwell Ceiling lights// PR Home (LjusExperten Linköping) Wall lights// LampeGras (Artelleriet) Bar stools// Giron (DisInredning)
Hello!! I’m sitting here in our new kitchen and I’m so in love. I couldn’t be more happy about the result. There is still some things that need to get fixed, a few handles are missing, a beam in the ceiling needs to get stained, and something is wrong with the new fridge… so right now we are having an old and ugly temporary one (not seen in the pictures, and it’s not blog friendly at all, haha).
We’ve been having friends over for the few last days, so we’ve been using and enjoying the kitchen a lot!
The guesthouse is almost done. Knobs for the kitchen cabinets, indoor handles and lights are still on my shopping list. I should have bought all that stuff a month ago, but this pregnancy is making me slow and lazy :) Hopefully everything will be done this coming week.
Brass shower and faucet// Tapwell Zink// macro design Green marble tile for the floor// Kolmårdmarmor Grey hexagon tile for the walls// Megakakel Cement countertop// Just asked my contractor to make one for me :)
Oh my. This bathroom is gonna be fab! All these beautiful things are for the bathroom in the main house.
Now time for an episode of Billions!
