I found this vintage copperthing” (!?) for a couple of weeks ago, when I was in the best second-hand shop in town. I don´t really know what it is, but found that I would try to make a lamp out of it. I bought the cord, socket and a bulb at Clas Ohlson, took out the screwdriver and made ​​my own lamp.

So simple and so cheap. Cool, huh? 🙂

CONTINUING TREND

Copper was a big hit on the interior front in 2013, and I´ve heard that there will not be any less hot this year.
I love the idea but I am afraid ofoverkill”, so I therefore try to implement some elements of copper, just not too much.

I‘ll show you something I found at my favorite second-hand shop here in Skien afterwards. Also in copper. Stay tuned!

The Black himmeli is also one of my lates DIY projects. Think I´ll show you more of that tomorrow. Now the bedroom is up for a tiny refreshening, so got to go! 😉

COLOR OF THE YEAR 2014

Good morning peeps!

January has passed much too fast another month of maternity leave has passed , and I allready am another month closer to starting work again. iiik!

Well, while I´m sitting here, nipping on my very black coffe, I thought I could show you our livingroom.This month we redecorated the living room and dining room. I love the color of the year, blue- green, so I decided to paint the wall in green shades. The color gives me lots of energy while providing an inner peace at the same time 🙂

I´m saving for a new carpet as well as new dining chairs, AND mine favorite cushions from HAY. So exited to see what February will bring (!!) …other than an empty wallet I mean 😉

OSLO WALL

Finally. A little refresher at the dining table! *smile*

As I said, I was so inspired by the color, Oslo, from Jotun that I painted the wall in the same color as the canvas. I love the contrast against the otherwise white walls mine. The color can be described as a mix between blue and black, and I think it works excellent for both black, blue, gray and green. In other words, perfect for my living room.

I bought a new swatch from Jotun the other day. I was originally just painting a canvas, but I was so in love with the color that I decided to paint a wall in the process. So here’s a sneak peek. The results come as soon as I finish the second coat 🙂

Have a great day!
