Garden room – Before/After

HomeInteriorNew House

One room by one our house is being completed. The room we call the “garden room” that leads out to our garden we just finished, here is the process in pictures and before/after.

Before the room had plastic carpet and white walls.

We took the carpet out and put concrete (float) on the floor.

Then we painted the ceiling white and walls mossy green.

The wall color we picked is called Dusky Le Havre from Nordsjö/Serefni.

Now we have left to hang up the “skenkur” on the right wall and on the left wall we will build a long work desk along the full wall where we can sit and work or our kids study when they are older.

My new plant love is this banana tree from Blómaval.

Love,

Posted about my new 🌵-buddy on my insta story two days ago and he had so many fans that I decided he would need his own post here on Trendnet.

I found him in my favorite flower store 4arstider.

Others – Table from NORR11 and pot from HAY.

Finally the boys room is finished 🙌

This room took extra long to finalize bc of the flooring that we put in and the skirting on top of it. The floor is vinyl parket, super strong and completely quiet. Perfect in the kids room when sneaking out after bedtime. We got it from Murbudin and they where really helpful to show me how to put it in ourselves 👌

Then we decided to paint half the walls with color to keep the room light. The color we have used is from Nordsjö/Serefni and the shade is named Misty le Havre, the perfect dusty green/gray.

Petit received the outstanding brand Numero74 this week and I have been dreaming about their products for years. I just had to have this tent!

The garland is also from Numero74 and it really makes the room magical and spacious.

Renovation: No more white walls!

HomeInteriorProjects

I am looking at wall colors for the new house. Our apartment today is extremely Scandinavian with all walls white, white oiled wooden floors and white furniture. In the new house we decided to not have any white walls, all rooms will be painted in different dust shades and we will also redo the floors but haven’t decided what type of floors yet, I think they will be bleached gray or dark oak wooden floors.

Now all the fun begins

Finally after almost a year of active searching for a new home we found the perfect place for us ?

We are currently in Fossvogur and love the neighborhood, we really wanted to find a bigger home within this area but the houses here are rare to find on sale and it took us a long time to get one. The 1st of May we will get the keys to our new home and there is a lot to be done before we can move in, walls, floors and ceilings needs to be painted or renewed. I am all in interior design at the moment and super excited to get my hands on the house.

I promise to share every step in our renovation with you and before/after ?

Love,

Our Bathroom renovation

HomeInteriorProjects

Our little bathroom was in great need of a “face lift” so we decided to have it done before the end of January. Our main focus was good practical storage and space for a washing machine, having newborn babies I did not want to be running to the washing room in the basement all the time.

I forgot to take before pictures so you can see the transformation but it was old and just not practical at all. What we have done is to buy new interior as lights, mirror, cabinets, shower/bath pipes, stone top and sink. I am really happy with the outcome and new storage spaces we got in this small bathroom.

We picked dark wood interior and white stone top, the top is extra wide for a bathroom so we could fit the washing machine under and also to have as a changing table on top. The sink and the top is all in stone and specially made after our measurements, we wanted all in one piece blending together. We picked a sink that is big enough so we can give our little boys a bath in it the first months.

New in: White Couch

HomeInterior

I am in nesting mood and finishing our home on step at the time before the twins arrival. We always wanted a big cosy couch to crawl up in and I know maybe white is not the most practical choose when expecting twin boys but IKEA sells covers for the couch and it is washable so we took a chance on having a white couch ;)

– Budget VS Luxury –

HomeInteriorShopping

About a year ago I fell in love with the brand Lyngby and their beautiful porslin. I bought myself a nice vase from them that I use a lot and never get tired of, then just the other day I walked into Systrana Grene and found a similar vase for almost nothing. I am a quality fanatic and love nice long lasting design but the fact is also that I cant afford to buy everything from fancy brands, so in our home I try to mix in both, budget and luxury. I know the designer products will last us longer and have a timeless value as well as it is fun to buy cheap design to change the mood and surroundings with.

The short vase in purple glas is from Systrana Grene costs 918kr and the large vase in gray glas is from Lyngby and costs 13.900kr.

Love,

– Decorate with Plants –

HomeInterior

When I feel like a change is needed at home I usually start with buying new flowers. For me flowers brings more of a “cosy” feeling to the home and like our home both walls and floors are white and it needs more cosynes to the decoration to make it feel like a home. Most my of flowers I buy at IKEA or a flower wholesale here in Iceland.
