THE TWO OTHER ROOMS

You've seen most of our flat in previous posts (here, here and here or under the 'At Home'-label, which actually is my favorite one) but there are in fact two more rooms to our flat that I haven't posted pictures of before. Most because they're always rather messy.
But maybe it's time to take a look!

To the right we have the pastel coloured kitchen, but to the left we have...

...the childrens' room!
As you may remember Eddi's sons, 10 and 5 years old, live with us every second week. Although those weekends mostly are spent at the farm here's where they reside during the weekdays.

This was the room I was tearing out the 70's plastic carpet form in the renovation post last spring. The table is made from the original kitchen's working surface.


Remember the Moomin cards I got but did not know what to do of? I hang them on the kid's door! The inside of the door is painted with chalk board paint and can be drawn upon.


We cut an IKEA table in half on both sides of the shelf to use for small items; books and school bags or to sit on when tying the shoes. It is fastened with a piece of wood against the wall.


I like the look of bunting but I sort of still don't get the point of it so I made my own version of vintage replica post cards of animals aroudn the world and a few meters of silk ribbon.


Then there's the blue room, where we work. I foudn the huge sciccors in an old toolbox.


You may remember it as the room with all the stuff in it during the renovation.


Normally it's full of burlesque show bags to unpack, suitcases from trips or just papers papers papers and eternal sewing projects.


And either way everything is always full of cats.

I do like your sense of colour, so many magazines show everything in white so your place really stands out nicely. Lovely curtains and cute cats ;)

Wow, I love your house, especially the curtains!! I adore the orange ones, but I'm especially fond of those black/white/pink ones!! May I ask where you found them, I've been on a curtain hunt for months now, and I can't seem to find anything I really like.

Marloes said...

I like your house, the furniture, colours, and decoration are really pretty.

Frollein von Sofa : Haha, there was a Chanel box in it! It was a gift. But what was in the box was not actually Chanel in the end :)

Hooked on Shoes : The orange ones are IKEA a few years back (originally bought it for a skirt but that never happened :) The ones with the black and pink roses are from Marimekko, called ruusupuu.

Forgive me,but I have to to use that word: this post is FUCKING great!! Love it soooo much! I Love your blog too, as you know, but my favourite post are these about your home or what you're doing at the moment, I can't wait for "four things for now" post too. You made my evening adding this post :)

Soo I have to say, that your flat is really cosy. It's yours, it has a soul and style. I like details especially made by you.

Ulrika, please don't think that I'm a freak or something, I don't know you but I really love you (in a virtual way of course), you inspires me so much, you changed something in my life, thank you! Have a nice evening!

Peering into others' homes makes me warm and fuzzy especially when I see the piano which I imagine you sitting at looking fabulous abd playing some exquisite music. Best photo?

I really like your version of bunting!And the idea of a workroom for the two of you,so cosy and mutually inspiring!

nana said...

Johanna said...

Really beautiful! I love the curtains on the children room :)

Samala said...

I love your blog so I feel sheepish this being my first comment but I LOVED this post! And it has come at such a good time too as I've just bought a new sewing machine after a 5 year hiatus (small kiddie induced). The 3 legged table you use is just perfect, another Ikea purchase? My other fave thing in this post is the awesome use of those cheap-as-chips ikea tables that has been sawn in half. SUCH a wonderful idea. Nice work and thanks :-)

Steffaree said...

Ylva said...

Vilket vackert hem ni har! En fröjd för ögat och jag får som vanligt en massa inspiration. Har ni alltid så städat och undanplockat:) Tack för tipset att dela ett IKEA bord och fästa på väggen o ha som pall etc. De är ju inte så snygga i sig själva men du har gjort de betydligt mer praktiskt och snyggare. Jag älskar också JAFFA planscherna. Det var bland det första jag skaffa när jag flyttade till Finland.

Samala : the table is quite old, from a friend's parents. I don't know where it's from originally. It's very practical for small spaces! Ikea should totally make those I think :)

Ylva : Tack :) Såg att vallila interior har Jaffa-tyger iår. att såga ikea bordet var tie av en snilleblixt coh blev faktiskt bra; gick på några minuter att få upp och ser onekligen näpnare ut såhär!

Så himla fint! Verkligen min smak, så till den milda grad att jag funderar på om du vet färgnumret på den blå färgen? Älskar den.

Karin : tack. Färgen borde vara NCS S 0530-B10G !
