Marble

IN THE MOOD AUGUST


After a long and well needed vacation, things are slowly getting back to normal. The kids are having their last week off before school and day care starts on Monday. Even I am slowly getting back into old routines. The weather have been wonderful for almost the whole summer and the sun keeps delivering, leaving opportunities of late afternoon dips in the ocean, having an ice cream in the park and foremost a possibility to postpone the fall for a at least a couple of weeks more.

Our home is slowly coming together, but as I am of a somewhat inpatient nature I´m about to burst into pieces if we wont be able to move in within two weeks. The bathrooms should be done by late next week and the kitchen week after. But as I have some experience from renovations or total make overs as this one, I shouldn't relay on deadlines...

Last couple of weeks I've been going over how to furnish the new place. Not always an easy task, especially as we this time are moving into a place that are actually less square meters then we had before. The color scheme we went for this time is more neutral, shades of white and gray. I´m also really into black and white. You who follow me on Instagram already know I've picked out a black and white marble floor for the hallway. Black and white is a classic combination that works not only interior wise but also in fashion wise. It´s just one of those combinations that never fails.

WISHFUL THINKING AND DAYDREAMING...


Hi guys, it´s Friday, the sun is shining and I just got home after a work out. Life is good! As you already know our apartment is up for sale and we just bought a new one, situated in a more luscious and green part of the city than where we are now. Can´t wait to start the renovation of the new place. Which is really necessary, there has been practically no work done in that apartment since the house was built in the early 30´s. So there is a lot to do but also a lot of original features preserved that I love. I just started making a wishlist over all the things I would love to get for this apartment...

I´ve been in love with these Superleggera chairs designed by the late genius Gio Ponti for as long as I can remember. Maybe now is the time to make that investment...

These cabinets from Lidhults has been on my mind for the last couple of weeks. Traditional, yet modern. Timeless. I´m not sure about the knobs though...

Have this idea of keeping it pretty simple in the bathrooms. White glossy tiles in standard sizing for the walls and carrera marble tiles on the floor. Maybe some marble mosaic in the shower area. Used the hexagon mosaic for the apartment we´re now and really like the look and feel of those, so maybe I just go for those again. 

Have been going back and forth on these tiger velvet cushions. Couldn´t really decide if they were a bit too much or a must have. And I think I need to have these.... I´ll let you know what I decide. Have to go now, running late for a photo shoot of these lovely pieces.

Happy Friday all!
