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.
