As some of you possibly might recall me saying here a few times the past year, I've been waiting rather eagerly to be able to start the renovation in the house in the countryside. (In real life I feel I haven't talked about much else the times we've been out there. Which is quite often. Been rather obsessive about it actually.) In winter I actually thought we'd get some things done during spring but I was perhaps a little too positive about it...
The living room needs new wall paper (nothing wrong with the old one, except for it is are getting a bit old and loose here and there, plus have some cracks. And a door has been moved so there's a 'naked' spot covered by a curtain and so on. Oh yeah, plus the pattern is upside down :) Also, the floor and ceiling will be changed to more authentic materials. Eventually.
The room wasn't really structured before, as the furniture was really just put there without any function or planning.
The sofa I mentioned earlier I bought from Bukowskis online auction house (around the same time as I got the lamps). It is a classic "Samsas" by Swedens grand old furniture guy, Carl Malmsten. The sofa is still in production, but this one however is old.
They must love me by now.
But it will all look very different anyway with the new colours we have in mind -it's all picked out already, wall paper, floor paint and so on...
I put up some "temporary" curtains to somewhat cover the windows; I don't like it their reddish brown wood colour. I will paint them white, like the original windows have been.
Soon the flowers will loose their leaves to the ground which will be full of white then. I quite poetically refer to it as the time when the apple trees weep. Or something.
