SUNNY MORNINGS OUT ON OUR KITCHEN BALCONY

Although we have sunshine the whole day on our terrace in the back of the house, I love starting my mornings out here on our kitchen balcony when it´s sunny. Today I´ve been looking trough my new Cereal Copenhagen City Guide in the sun, and I´m looking forward to visit my favorite city again, so I can explore some of the places they recommend in the guide that I haven´t been to yet… There are so many nice places in this city!

A cup up coffee and something to read in the sun is always a good idea ; )

A new look in the offce

A NEW LOOK IN THE OFFICE

A long and relaxing vacation is now over and it´s time to get back to work. With a new start, I also have a new look in the office. I don´t know if you remember the beautiful second-hand desk I used to have in here. Well, I´m afraid it was to high for me and not good for my neck and shoulders, so I´m back to my white simple desk again. It´s probably a bit boring comparing the second-hand desk, but I actually like simplicity and how light it became in here with my white desk.

hanging strawberry plant

One of my best investments this summer is this hanging strawberry plant. Every day I find new strawberries that are ready to be enjoyed, and they taste extra delicious when they come directly from the plant. Simple summer bliss!

I actually had a hanging strawberry plant last year as well, but this year my plant carries a lot more fruits and the berries are sweeter and taste much better – probably a result of more sunshine I guess..

Inspirasjon til soverommet

For inspirasjon til soverommet har jeg satt sammen 10 favoritter til soverommet fra nettbutikken Room21.no. På soverommet passer det godt med et rolig og svalt tema, og i tillegg til å være praktisk er det viktig med komfort.

INSPIRASJON TIL SOVEROMMET

1. Lens oppbevaringseske fra Hay er super til å ha smykkene sine i, samtidig som den bringer natur og varme inn på soverommet.
2. Håndkrem er jo et must på nattbordet, og denne velduftende kremen fra Meraki bringer helt klart litt luksus i hverdagen.
3. Jeg har lenge ønsket meg en kleshenger designet av Anna Leena. Rail Rektangel kleshenger skulle jeg gjerne hatt på soverommet til de fineste klærne mine.
4. Jeg har denne vakre Waltz posteren av Tove Frank i stua, men den gjør seg like bra på et soverom.
5. Drømmelampa over alle i mine øyne! AJ bordlampe på nattbordet setter helt klart prikken over i´en på soverommet.
6. Det sies at man ikke skal ha mobilen i nærheten når man sover, så da må man jo ha en tøff vekkeklokke i stedet. Norm Tumbler alarmklokke fra Menu liker jeg.
7. Speil hører til på et soverom, og hvorfor ikke et rundt speil et med skinnreim fra Ferm Living.
8. Tøffe hengere hører med når man har så fint oppheng. Liker så godt disse enkle sorte hengerne fra Hay.
9. Det 100% økologiske sengetøyet fra Aiayu er helt fantastisk å ligge i, og hvor nydelig er det ikke i denne lyse grønnfargen?
10. Dette fantastiske Spring teppe fra House Doctor kunne jeg hatt hvor som helst i huset, men på soverommet er det alltid godt med et teppe å trå på.

 

Håper min kollasj kunne gi deg litt inspirasjon til soverommet. Hvilke av mine 10 favoritter til soverommet liker du best?

DIY outdoor sofa

DIY OUTDOOR SOFA

I´ve mentioned earlier that we made a DIY outdoor sofa on the top level on our terrace, and now with the new pillows it not only looks better, but it´s much more comfy as well. My plan was actually to make pillows myself, but when I found these in the right size at an affordable price at Ikea, I bought some instead.

To make the sofa we first made a solid frame using treated materials, before we covered the fronts and sides with the same type of panel as we used on the railing on the terrace. On the top we used the same decking as we have on the rest of the terrace.

The height on the sofa is all together approx. 50cm and the width 60 cm.

After treating the wood with Jotun Visir, we painted it in the same color as the house and railing – Optimal 9938 Dempet sort.

Magazines

The sofa works perfect as a sun bed as well, and with the pillows it´s now a new favorite place to spend our time whenever we are out on the terrace.

And with this relaxed setting, I´m now taking a few weeks off to enjoy summer here in Norway. There will still be some updates on my blog, but most of the action will be on my Instagram.

I wish you all a lovely summer! If you are in need of some simple and fun activities to do in the summer, you can check out my Stylizimo´s Summer Checklist.
