It‘s been a while since I’ve shown you a snapshot of the living room … so here we go!

Wondering what the next project will be. Have plans to paint the green wall eventually, but am very unsure of color. Thinking gray. Anyone who has any good tips to grayscale?

Anyways, the contact plastic of marble comes into shop this week, and I’m ecstatic! F I N A L L Y !!!

 I often get questions about what color I used in the living room. So here we go; the color is called Lofoten, and comes from Fargerike‘s blue green collection. Also known as “color of the year 2014”. I am VERY happy with the choice. Although it probably only last until the summer (LOVE changes), I could not have had a lovelier color in the house right now.

When I was in Oslo last week, I found this great carpet at Illums from Funkle! It matches the color scheme upstairs so well. Just had to have it! 😀

Soon heading out, but first I´ve got to sew some pillows!
