i am writing this blogpost for several reasons. first, i get a lot of questions about my interior. second, i still want to change a lot of things and this is for me a sort of ‘before’ blogpost. third, i want to show it isn’t perfect. after all, i am very very happy with our home. happy how far we have come.
you can read in our story how fast our life went in the past three years. we married, got three children, bought a house and renovated it. well, that consumes looooads of money. it also consumes a lot of time. and it causes a lot of stress ;-). so that are three things why our home is not finished yet and that is also why i am happy with how it is now.
first, our hallway. it is small and dark and i am not planning to let it look any nicer, because i am going to buy all the storage i can find at ikea next year. you have to go somewhere with your stuff as a family of five right?
when you walk into our living room this is what you see. that is what i mean with stuff ;-). very happy with our fireplace, we never used it yet because the flue needs to get cleaned. but next year i hope to light it.
our living room as you know it from my instagram. getting back to the storage again, lot of storagespace under the couch as you can see ;-).
officially the first prints in our home. still looking for a wall lamp next to it in the colour of the hands of the clock [gold/messing]. tips anyone?
view from the living room and the kitchen on the dining table. we had the ixxi mona lisa at the white wall but i ruined it while cleaning [yes i am as clumsy as a donkey] and for now i am fine with the white wall because it works perfect for my pictures ;-).
one of the nicest things i have ever done is picking my own kitchen! so much fun to do! still very happy with it, allthough i want to do something about the decoration and storage. i want it a bit cleaner but also cosier, goal for next year.
coffee corner. i would like to make this corner more scandinavian looking. for now, it’s fine.
hanging lamp: bloomingville
i think i have bare showed this perspective of the twins room. i am not very happy with it. i choose the wallpaper because i really liked it but it is very hard to find items and accessoires that go well with it. so at the moment i am even thinking to replace it in the future with something else.
the corner i am happy with and well known on my instagram ;-).
jacks room. i love it. the most finished room of the house.
bed: petit am√©lie
bedding: bibelotte bedding
cards: little indians
crossstickers: bibelotte bedding
our bathroom is very small and dark. it is hard to make a proper picture of it. but it has all we need, a bath √°nd a shower √°nd a toilet.
the most unfinished room of the house. oh no, that is the attic. but it still need something ;-). our bedroom. but since we are planning to renovate our attic [see shocking pictures below haha] we are not going to finish our current bedroom [in terms of accessoires]. we are going to renovate our attic this winter, in january, and we are going to make our new master bedroom over there. i am getting really excited about it when i think of it. we are going to make the whole floor our own department of the house [together with the laundry ;-)]. i hope to have a lot of me and we time over there. only waiting for better nights with the kids…
nighttable: ikea, painted

some common specs:
white color on doors, walls and ceiling: RAL9010

i am looking forward to next year, when i can a post/posts with the changes we made. thanks, as always, for reading.
