Lyckan Home

Hello & welcome to us.
Jake & the girls house in Bua. ( Girls meaning 6 hens and 3 doves and I )

Soon a new family member joining us. December 12th I believe, somewhere around that date anyway.
Trying to get our house sorted in time before our lil’ boy is born.
Hall way got new curtains and we moved our wardrobe as well.
Due to the baby’s crib in our bedroom.

At least there’s a bed, but I think baby will be between us right? Lights and a whale mobile will come up soon. Perhaps a grey canopy .

Hanna Wendelbo’s print sisterhood mandala on the left  and Lisa Burenius art work is next to Hanna’s piece .
It looks like it’s a pink horizon with a pink whale in the water – can you see it what I see ?

The octopus was a gift from three girls up north – Thank you so much – a pressie when FGL celebrated 1 year. So thoughtful.

Our pink love seat is the favourite in this house. A big print by Lisalove will soon go up on this wall to.
Always hard to snap a photo from this corner – there’s so much light..

I think our kitchen could be our top spot. 5 meters height to the ceiling it gives a spaceious feel.

I’m wearing our polka dot duster it’s from our newest collection .
Did you read my update about the whole process? If not, you find it here.

Many people always ask where we bought our kitchen table.
It’s a blocket find since years back. My best tip to find lovely old things is to visit blocket daily.

Blocket is good for finding prints and cabinets too.

The two ladies in the picture above is made by talented Lisalove.se

I havn’t open my little gift from Hanna Wendelbo, the box was so beautiful so I kept on my drawer.

The bedroom upstairs with the flower wallpaper – carnation garden from Boråstapeter. We covered our ceiling and walls with it. So nice.

On the other end of the loft is a bed covered in baby clothes. Think I bought two bodies out of all ..

My gran knitted pieces are the cutest of them .

Jake & I spent few days to clay these walls in here. Not the most exciting job – good result. Looks like concrete. I can highly recommend clay walls in a bathroom, gives it a complete different feel compared to tiles top to toe.

this was all for now I think.
A little glimpsie from our home.

OUR HOUSE

Welcome to our house, Lyckan.
20 minutes north of Varberg, located in Bua harbour.
Stones throw from the water front. Summer brings with it her long days and warm swims in the ocean. Very lucky to have beautiful bathing spots so close to home.

This is our new entrance which we built ourselves last summer, an extension of the original house.

The kitchen is mine and my IG followers ‘favourite place’ of the house. It’s spacious and open.

The kitchen comes from Ikea. Really easy to design it yourself. With a black kitchen you will see if it’s dusty! I can assure you, but I still like it a lot.

We’ve also chosen Ikea’s oven with a gas top. Cooking with gas is so handy… instant heat!

Table and chairs are vintage. The ladies below were found in Fair Fax market couple of weeks ago back in LA. Tiny vases from the 1930. I thought they were cute.

Frames and pictures are old vintage finds too, and the ‘byrå’ was a gift from the lady who owned this house before us.

The stairs lead to the loft and our second bedroom. So happy how the loft space, which wasn’t used before the renovation, turned out. Building and designing around an old 1850’s house has its head aches but also comes with its rewards, through its unique details.

the other week

Last week we had so much snow. Bua village was a winter wonder land, but the snow never lasts down south, only takes few days and it’s all gone.

I had to share these pictures because today it’s foggy and grey. So gloomy and boring.

Even I enjoy the snow when it’s this much. It happens once a year for 48h approx..
Our hens stayed inside for two long days, refused to go out. Too cold!

When it was snowing the most I was inside sending pictures over WhatsApp to our vendor in India. Right now FGL’s very busy getting everything ordered in time before the high season. Our collection takes a long time to produce due to the natural processes.

I can tell you there’re many photos shared between us, colour approvals, small detail changes like pockets being smaller or frills to a skirt or simple adjustments.

Small things make a huge difference in the end.  Thank god for wifi, WhatsApp, emails & FaceTime.

a winters day

Jetlag slowly disapearing, the mornings are the worst.
My Monday was a good one, got a lot of things done. Always working with a to-do list so I don’t forget anything. But! In all the hurry yesterday I seemed to forget some important papers in the local super market!
Luckily it’s a small village and a kind soul sent me a message regarding my bank paper that was left in a trolley, hahha! oppss.

Right now I’m listening to Mogli on repeat. Feel in love in with her music when watching the documentery  Expedition Happiness on Netflix,  A must see according to me.

My best purchase from Los Angeles, The Future is yours- sweater. The blooming dress is coming this spring in FGL Store.

Our Sisterhood collection will be released this week. Today we’re meeting up with 3 women who are working for change. Our collection will support that cause. So excited for this coming project!

Found Mini eating away on the apples I left outside for our birds, I have lots of bags in the barn with fruit I saved from work. Perfect to put out in each corner – the wild birds enojoy it as well.

Our hens don’t like this weather at all. They longing for the spring now, I can only agree. I keep telling them spring is on it’s way. Cheer up!

Lyckan house to rent

Our house is called “Lyckan”, it was built 1850 by my grandmas grandparents.
Through 2016 and 2017 we renovated the entire house. I have never painted so much in my whole life. Jake and I, did a lot of work on our own and along the way we had help of carpenters too.
Jake is a handy man, all the things he hasn’t done before he “youtubes” you can literally find everything you need to know on there.

Summer 2017 we extended our house and made a new entrance and a master bedroom.

The bedroom downstairs.

We have the ocean a few steps from our house. With many different spots for nice swims. Jake has been better than me taking opportunities swimming.

Summer is getting closer and for those of you who want to spend your summer close to Varberg our house is available.
Last summer we had visitors all the way from Netherlands & Norway, love how the internet reaches out to so many!
We will rent out weekly starting  1st of July.
Sunday till Sunday.

Our house is located in the left corner above the boat, metal roof.

A big plus is if you like chickens, you will need to look after our girls whilst renting our house. To give fresh water and food everyday and maybe spoil them with some treats every now and then – you might get more eggs!
