Living Room Changes

posted in: Decor, Living Room, Summer | 3

I know, we are almost on another weekend (again) but I wanna go through our last weekend. We got so many things done last weekend that would normally take at least a month worth of weekends x) We saw our friends, which doesn’t happen that much anymore because of everybody’s hectic schedule. We got so many work things done.. went for walks and then we cleaned the whole house! It had a snowball effect with our living room and it slowly started rolling on Friday by bringing guest room’s malm table to our living room! I wanted to see how it would look to have a table under our living room window. I couldn’t really picture it first so I just had to try and see how it would work, so I did and that table is still there 😀 It’s funny how after a certain amount of times you kind of get “blind” with certain spaces in your house and you don’t necessarily think you can do, or not ever planning to do anything about it. But sometimes it’s nice to shake and change things up a little 😉

I think having a table there changes the whole living room vibe. I placed different things there, magazines, candles etc and everything looked good! Now there’s just a set of candles because I wanna start slowly. I have a hard time to have things around on tables and such. I love seeing peoples’ pictures of decorative things here and there, they look beautiful, but when it comes to my home, I like clean lines and most stuff hidden. x) But pretty much whatever I through there, it looked really good and it didn’t “take over” the way I thought would! So that table is going to stay!

But because of the “new table” in our living room a couple of things had to go! That small table between barcelona chairs is between sofa and dining area and that besta drawer had to go. It felt too crowded having the shelve unit there with all the new changes! That Besta shelf unit is now in the guest room! I also took our area rug away, hoping to get it cleaned. But since that didn’t happen right away, I placed that under our dining table! Probably not the most practical rug under dining table, but it looks really good! (post coming later) And living room looks neat and surprisingly bigger without a rug! But I had a hard time to capture that spacious feeling on camera. I have to practise on that. But in real life it looks very nice!

Alright, this is all for now! Wishing you a wonderful day!

XOXO

I still can’t believe that it’s first week of June!

Time to make some confessions 😀 Regarding what is going to happen this summer. I’ve been keeping this as a secret for the past 6 months and it’s been so hard to keep the secret! So here it comes – We are going to Europe this summer (in a few weeks actually) and the first destination is PARIS!!!!!!!! I’ve never been there before, always wanted to go and I can’t believe the day is almost here!!! Our hotel is already booked but whatever tips and hints you have or want to share with me, please, they are very much appreciated!!!!

To some of you it might be more than obvious what our destination is after Paris x) But to be clear, after Paris we are gonna go to Finland to see my family! It’s been more than three years since I’ve seen them, so it’s about time to go! My Finland vacay is still a secret a.k.a surprise to some relatives so I’ve been keeping it quiet 😀 But now I gave myself permission to blurp it out here so that I can get much needed tips and advices how to plan our stay in Paris!

So please, I’d love to hear from you!

Wishing You a Lovely Weekend! 

Getting Ready

Finally getting our guest room ready 🙂 Even though it is very airy and crisp looking it still has that coziness in it? Do you agree? 🙂 I still have many things to do before our guest arrives but I’m glad I was able to do a quick post. Now that this room is done I should get a huge sign (or electric fence 😀 ) for this door and our guest bathroom too, so that NO ONE (well a man and a dog) wanders in and makes a mess 😉 haha

So, I got a new white bedspread from Ikea, see it HERE

Duvet cover is from Pentik. We got two sets of these as a gift at our last trip to Finland. Too bad these don’t come in queen or king size sets (correct me if I’m wrong and please let me know where to get them, if there is any Pentik duvet covers that are available in a wider size) I “can’t “ use these in our bed since we use a king size duvet and I like it more than two separate duvets. Well, whenever we have guests coming over, they have the luxury to sleep in these, and my other Marimekko duvet sets x)

This is all for now but stay tuned!

….. to be continued 😉
