Boys Playroom

Our boys got a playroom where they can have their friends over, play with legos, watch TV and since the room is far away from the main family area, be as loud as they please!

We found out that the IKEA PS 2012 daybed fitted perfect on this room. We love the color and the details of the cushions, the storage option is pretty handy; plus, it's also a convenient extra bed.

The text prints canvas are from Clas Ohlson, the shelfs are from Søstrene Grene and Panduro, which are home-painted and decorated with printable freebies from Frem Living and Minieco. The reindeer head is from IKEA CHALET 2013 Limited Edition that got pimped up with a bright yellow color!

Read my blog post about Mike Stimpson Lego Star Wars photography.

I am still thinking about a solution to a more practical storage idea for books and toys that will make the room feel more spacious... maybe a few boxes on the wall will do the trick?

The back-dot carpet is also from IKEA. 

 Check the The boo and the boy blog. It has a fantastic section full with inspiration for boys rooms!

Thanks for stopping by,

Desafío Navidad

Hola amigos de Blad! Me alegra mucho poder saludarlos y de paso participar en el desafió de este mes: Ideas navideñas. Aquí les comparto una idea inspirada por una de mis velas favoritas para la temporada navideña de Tine K Home.
Hello my friends from Blad! I am very happy to greet all of you and to participate in this month challenge: the theme is "Christmas Ideas". I want to share an idea inspired by one of my favorite candles for the holiday season from Tine K Home.

Mientras esperamos el 24 de diciembre hacemos planes con la familia y amigos. Para hacerlo mas emocionante podemos ir contando los días en calendario o de una manera mas cálida con una velita!
 Para esta idea solo necesitan un frasco de vidrio, en este caso yo he guardado uno de mermelada, diseñar como ustedes quieran que se vean los números del 1 al 24 y pegarlo al frasco. Cuando yo hago un proyecto como este me gusta usar papel autoadhesivo. Para la vela pueden usar la que mas les guste, por ejemplo una con olor a navidad.
As we await for December 24th, we make plans with family and friends. To make it more exciting, we can start counting the days on the calendar. And why not to do it in a warmer way with a candle.
You will need only a glass jar (in this case I have kept a jam one), design the numbers from 1 to 24 as you like them to look and then add them to the bottle. When I do a project like this I like to use self-adhesive paper. Put your favorite candle in the jar - you can use a candle with Christmas scent.

Si les gusta mi diseño lo pueden bajar he imprimir dándole clic aquí!
If you like my design you can download it here!

Este puede ser un lindo regalo pre navideño para alguien especial.
Espero ver mas lindas ideas en el desafió.

Pink Winter Mood

This winter I am in a colorful mood.

Last weekend I hosted a girl's night and for the occasion I put together a pink winter table setting. 

I was happy when I found pink ranunculus at my local flower shop, Blomsterlykke

 I think this disposable wood tableware is really cute natural, but to make it fancy I painted it gold. I used as napkin holders cute Christmas decoration ornaments from Home & Cottage.

I put pine cones all over the table, I also painted them with gold details. They are adorable and can be use over and over again.

I want to enter to this month NIB challenge Vinterstemning, (Winter Mood), with my pink table setting inspiration. Visit the NIB challenge page and see other winter mood entries.

Memories From The Fair

I had a really good time at this year´s Interior Fair.

Meeting "Passion 4 baking" Manuela Kjeilen was a blast! She is as sweet as her recipes and since my hubby loves baking he also got to meet her; plus, he bought her book: "Manuelas Magiske Jul". Our Christmas this year is going to be sweet for sure!

See more pictures of my favourite things from the Fair on my Facebook page.

Have a nice week.
