AT HOME

The bright light shining in trough the windows (that still are waiting to be washed) at as late as six in the evening is a sign that spring has not only begun but h´been here a while already. The weather however disagrees.

As the light was rather nice at the same time as something rare occurred; the flat was almost tidy; I decided to take some pictures of home. There has actually not been that many since the renovation was finished.


I intended to write a bunch about tapestry, furniture and revamping items but you know what - I'll leave that to another time!

And yes, I still only have two cats, but they really do manage to be everywhere all at once.

Your home is lovely! Your cats are so cute, and they do truly stick their nose in everywhere, don't they? I know mine does, way more than my dog.

Your house is so beautiful <3 everything matches so well, but it doesn't look overly planned out either...

And my cat also has the habit of rolling around in little patches of sun :)

Vintage Kewpie said...

Your home looks cool, calm and gorgeous...

Rin said...

I definitely have a thing for retro. Cute fridge and lovely cats!

Magdalena Hai said...

Oh my, your other cat(the one with the white spot on her/his chest) is clearly a reincarnation of my beloved cat Poksu, who sadly passed away several years ago! :,)

Lovely apartment also! Especially love the use of colours (pink!) and the birdie-wallpaper. :)

THERÉSE said...

lovely regrifirator (haha, spelling?) been surfing around here a bit - am I right when i wonder if you´re swedish-something living in Finland? or something haha :)

Anyways, fun to experience a little bit of Finland trough your blog. I myself is part swedish-finnish but have never been to finland ever. sad but true.. :)


anyways,
wishing you a happy sunday.
:)

THERÉSE said...

just got to comment again, saw how I tossed the letters around - refrigerator is it of course. :)

Karin said...

Om det ser ut sådär när det är "nästan" städat, då måste det vara... jag vet inte hur när det är "helt och hållet" städat! :)

jojography said...

Your kitchen looks like an old-fashioned ice-cream parlour, because of the colours, lovely. I also really like the red chairs in the living room and your bedroom is just perfect, I love nearly all white living rooms best. and you decorated everything with such awesome taste, definitely a place to live in.

vixenoffoxgreen said...

Delicious-you should be doing this for a living-people PAY for this lady!
Oh and I think 'anonymous' hasn't got a clue-your pics are always stunningly executed xx

auxpaysdesmerveilles said...

I'm in love with your interior! So pretty. The cats are the cherry on the cake!

Diva said...

Thanks for sharing Ulrika! Great appartement!

Chloé said...

i'm so in love with your fridge.

Lucia said...

Underbart hem! Du har precis ett sådant kök som jag vill ha i mitt nästa hem! Och skjutdörrar, underbart. Tack för att du visade dessa bilder. Har du en aning btw vart man kunde sälja en grön 50-60 tals soffa ( jag vet att detta inte är ett löp-sälj forum, men OM du råkade veta nåt tips.. )

Tusen tack för fina bilder, ha en fin dag.

Tasha : yes, everywhere…they especially love going into the wardrobe's drawers and purr into my tops. Leaving lots of fur behind of coruse…

Simone : Garage Land på fredriksgatan har bl.a Vivien of Holloway och Stop Staring? Eller I t.ex Ansa Vintage elelr Play it Again Sam. Jag köper så mycket på nätet så jag har faktikst inte sådär jättebra koll.

Anonyymi : postasin pikkasen jo, jonaina päivänä paremmalla kuvilla sitten :)

Anonymous : I really don't get what you're after, if you want to critisize you should be more specific?

Magdalena Hai : Like Lulu!

Therése: I'm a Swedish speaking Finn, finlandssvensk. Swedish is an official langauge in Finland, it was actually the first official language here. You can study from kindergarten up to a doctors degree in Swedish as well as in Finnish over here. About 6% of the population speaks Swedish. . So I'm not Sverige-Swedish in any way, although I happen to have family in Sweden too.

Karin : snäppet vassare!

Lucia : Pröva huuto.net? Jag tror det är det bästa alternativet här. Det kostar väl någon liten slant, men sidan fungerar rätt så bra nuförtiden. Och hmmmm, hurudan är soffan? Man skulle ju vilja ta en liten titt :)

lucia said...

Off topic :)
Ulrika, om du vill kan jag e-mejla några bilder på soffan. Den är alltså jätte jätte fin. En utdragbar soffa, som fungerar som bäddsoffa för en el 2 gäster, men alltså inte som dagens bäddsoffor, utan med en låda där under, vet du?
Den är grön, turkos-grön, mer grön än blå. Kanske menad för 4 personer att sitta i o dricka martinis :) Ingen "löhö" soffa. Köpte den i somras på walters möbel avdelning, där ute, du vet. Gott skick.
Jag kan posta några foton till dig om du vill?

Lucia

Lucia : äsch, ja glömde svara! maila gärna bilder till freelancersfashion@gmail.com
Det ryms inte någon ny soffa hem men ifall den skulle passa till Ingå huset så.. :)
