Juligt

Welcome to Lyckan Christmas edition. This year I was ready by the 1st of December, just in case baby Fletcher would decide to show up. 
Nothing yet though, but we’re ready. Gonna share some photos from my day – morning till night.

My newest edition of prints. Ångestfjäril by Lisalove. She’s one of a kind.
I love her art.

Just bought a few more decorations for our tree. It’s busier now, you’ll notice on the picture further down.

Love my little ‘Lucia kör’ made by Marie, my dear friend. 

& she has made this ceramic bowl too – eggshell it’s called. Made to order if you would wanting this in your own home.
Check her shop out right here.

Porridge is my everyday breakfast, sometimes lunch, sometimes snack, sometimes all the time! 

& then the light faded away…

It’s not what’s under the Christmas tree that matters
– it’s who’s around it.

Merry christmas
from
me
to 
you.

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.

BUA’N Summer nights

The other day Jake helped me snap some photos of a collaboration with Lindex Officials.
I’ve choosen my favourites from their summer collection.

Since I got this skirt I have barely taken it off. Just so great to wrap around you.

We live just a minute away from the harbour. Nights like this – we can’t complain.

Our house is litterally behind my back.

Jake is alway taking the opportunity for a swim, but I’m useless. Always thinks it’s too cold for a dip and I’m very happy staying by the water. But this night I went in..

Bua the tiny village. A hidden gem in the summers for sure.

I should really stop saying; I don’t enjoy being in the water because afterwards it’s a great reward for your body and soul. Ok, I will try my best !

Laters,

The summer has arrived

Let me share some photos from our day yesterday. We spent most of it out in the sun.
Family Inglund took us out for a trip to one of the islands near by. Such a perfect day.

Life with a boat is so much better. This is how I spent my summers when I was a child to. We were always out on the islands. Fishing crabs, collecting wood for the bon fire, catching some mackerel for the dinner etc etc.

Talk about a relaxed body and mind after a day out on the sea!
Can’t wait to get our boat fixed now. A part needs to be changed and hopefully we’ll be out and about as much as we can this summer.

Måns wanna visit England now since he found out that in England you eat sandwiches with chips inside – Jake don’t teach him your naughty food habits. (Very wierd for a Swede to mix Chips with your lunch, big nono ! Sounds dreamy in Måns ears thou )

Lollo cooked us lunch and afters, 2 course meal on an island is not the baddest. A day to save in the heart for a long long time.

Thank you so much for sharing your day with us.

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.
