Yesterday Mbl/Smartland published the interview they did with me regarding our new house and what we have done so far. I personally felt that it was a little to early bc we are not done with all rooms, but I think they did a nice interview and the outcome looked good :)
Living room painted in my color named “Linnea Sand” from Nordsjö/Serefni.
Display cabinet with my great grandmothers porslin.
Banana plant and pot both from Blomaval.
Our twin boys bedroom – Tent from Numero74/Petit.is
Their beds are from Sebra/Petit.is
G for Gunnarssynir
Þóra Lóas bedroom.
Our bedroom with night lamps from Bauhaus.
Carpet from Bloomingville.dk
Guest bath up stairs.
We are still renovating parts of our house as the kitchen and guest bedroom, I will show you the process as we are finishing :)
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.
4 days left to the big move and now we are complete painting all room’s and the finishing work is going in. Today we put in white floor carpet in Þóra Lóa’s room.. It turned out prefect and we where able to lay it our selfs, so easy and cheap!
We used spacial carpet tape and glued it down and then we cute off the extra edge so it fits exactly in the room. Now we will put in wall lists over the carpet ?
Feel like I am often excusing myself for little updates.. I am so often saying – There is too much going on at the same time. Well again, there is too much going on at the same time (!) I found myself crying over nothing bc I am just so overwhelmed.. Almost no sleep, two newborns, new house, toddler and a company. This is the recipe for madness!
Soon I will find the light in the end of the tornado and the carrot that keeps me going is the process we make everyday in the new house.
Here is where we stand now in the renovation..
Upper living room, here we have spray painted the panel ceiling and lighten the floors. We have left to paint the walls.
The house is built in many different floor highs, the upper living room is the highest floor with large windows and a big balcony.
In our apartment we lighten the floors in three layers, here we just decided to keep them natural with extra matte lack.
On the entree floor is the kitchen, entrance, guest bath and guest bedroom.
We took down a wall and opened up into the kitchen, we also took down some of the upper cupboards to open the kitchen up more and use the ceiling height. We will spray paint the kitchen interior, probably dark brown/gray and put up open shelf’s.
From the first floor there is a full stair case down to the “bedroom floor”, we have taken down the hand railing to have it redone, not yet sure if it will be back or white. We also installed hanging lights.
When you walk down the stairs there was a small bedroom right after the stairs, we decided to opened up and made into a hall way/open office room out in the garden. Here we also put in concrete floor.
The boys room was two small bedrooms that we took down the wall in between. We are keeping the two doors and later when they want their own room we can just put up the wall again. Here we have only painted the walls and have left to put in flooring and paint windows.
I completely fell in love with the green/gray color in their room from Nordsjö/Serefni.
Toras room is also finished painted but we have floor and windows left. Her wall color is in pale pink also from Nordsjö/Serefni.
Then there is our bedroom, all bathrooms, washing room, mud entrance, guest room and lower living room left to start on. I will keep you updated! One palace where I am good to put in all small updates is on my Instagram/insta story, you can follow the renovation there also ;)
I am looking for vintage midcentry modern interior for the new house, the house was built in late 1960 and we want to mix modern and 60s. It is a bit of a challenge to find the perfect pieces, I try to go as often as I can to second hand stores to not miss anything that could come in. So far Ive found some really nice items that I know will look perfect in the new house ?
This old brass pendant lamp will be in our guest bath by the main entrance. The bathroom is small and narrow and will be painted in a dark shade so I think brass will look good in there.
My new LOVE – I was so happy when I found this beauty for only 4.500kr.
All of a sudden round mirrors are hard to find, this used IKEA mirror only cost me 1.200kr and it is in good condition.
I could buy 100 candle holders every time I visit a second hand shop. These are from a old menu collection and will look good anywhere.
Do you know of any second hand stores that are good close to RVK?
