Our new laundry room

So the day has finally come. After weeks of renovation, the new laundry room is ready, and I am so happy to share the result with you. As I wrote in the planning post, the room was from 1986 so it was about time it got a makeover. Not only to make it look better, but also to make it much more practical. Doing the laundry is not on top of my list of enjoyable things to do, so it is nice to have a welcoming room to go to  : )

As you can see in the mood board the end result is very close to how I planned it to be. The only difference is actually the floor, which I planned to have in a concrete finish. Unfortunately, I did not manage to get the result that I was hoping for, and had to bring out the paintbrush to fix it. Still happy with the result and with the grey rug I got the contrast I was looking for.

My washing and tumble dryer also got replaced, and the new ASKO machines really fit well with the rest of the clean and Scandinavian design of the room. Maybe no surprise since I learned that ASKO is actually from Sweden and has won the Red Dot Design award in the category  ”Best of the best product design”. For the environment-conscious readers out there, I would also like to point out two great functions in the washing machine called “Green Mode” which saves water and electricity and the “Allergy Mode” ensures that there is no detergent left in the clothes afterwards.

Keeping true to the Scandinavian style, the cabinets are the METOD cabinets with the EKESTAD fronts from IKEA. The laundry room is not the biggest, so I like how the oak fronts and the white ASKO appliances, walls and floor make the room light.

Lastly, the black details like the Tapwell faucet and the coat racks ( I painted these black myself ) add a nice contrast and spices up the room.

So what do you think? Are you looking to renovate the laundry room yourself?

WIN AN ASKO WASHING MACHINE!

Whether you are actually going to renovate the laundry room or not, maybe you are looking to replace your old washing machine? And how does it sound to be actually given one? Yes, that is right.

Bedroom Stylizimo Blog

After having this wonderful dark grey in our bedroom ( LADY Pure Color 9925 Bergknatt ), I´m thinking of maybe painting the walls in a new lighter and warmer color. Some of the colors I´m considering is LADY 10966 Almond Beige, 10965 Hipster Brown, or 10963 Golden Bronze. What do you think? Which one do you think would be nice in our bedroom?

As some of you might have noticed, I have been sharing the latest updates from our house on Instagram Stories. Two rooms have received a well-deserved upgrade, and one of them is the washing room that has not been touched since the house was built in 1986. As you can imagine, it was about time.

As with any major renovation project that I do, I like to visual how I would like the room to be and a mood board is an excellent way to do this.

As you can see I am going for a clean look with a touch of nature with the oak door panels from IKEA. The black Tapwell faucet looks great and will create a nice contrast to the rest.

To complement the design, I have chosen ASKO for the washing machine and tumble dryer. Living up to its Scandinavian heritage the machines have a minimalistic and clean look that I like.

For the finishing touch, I am planning to have a Himla rug that will soften up the concrete floor. Lastly, as you can see in the mood board, I am also planning to have a Himla towel hanging on the wall as well as the Menu dustpan. The details are important, right?

So what do you think? Stay tuned for the big reveal next week.

MAKING OUR ENTRANCE READY FOR FALL

I have for a long time been thinking about finding a large pot and a wintergreen tree for our entrance. And a couple of weeks ago I found them both on sale ( a good bargain is always nice, huh? : ) ) The best thing about having this huge flower pot, is that I have room for some seasonal plants around the tree as well. So I have filled it with different autumnal greenery that I like, and I´m now all set for autumn.

Finally, it looks a lot more welcoming at our front door.
