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.

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.

Changes

Today Jake and I moved out from our house in Bua, to our summer house up the road. The last couple of days have been very busy. Cleaning out drawers, getting everything ready for our summer guests. In between all this we decided on giving our walk in closet an upgrade. A total make over from boring white, to chestnut blossom.

For a while now, I’ve been looking for a desk on ‘Blocket’ (Sweden’s equivalent to gumtree), I almost drove down to the south of Sweden to buy one vintage because it was getting rather tight with time.
But one morning before opening FGL Store, I quickly stopped by a second hand shop in Varberg.

There it was…
The perfect size, the perfect everything. Love finding treasures like this, vintage shopping is so much fun. That same morning we also found a sofa, a cabinet, a table. Everything gathered under 10 minutes the final missing pieces to get a fully furnished house.

The space is long and narrow. When building this room it was meant to be a closet. We don’t really need all that space right now so I thought I wanted to make an office for myself. So much paper work nowadays so couldn’t be more perfect.

Green is such a relaxing colour and it’s stands for positivity. Like I mentioned in my previous update about wall paper, my love for Boråstapeters collection ‘In Bloom’ is just spot on. Here you see Chestnut blossom . This particular design also comes in a blue base for those of you who prefer a darker choice. Both are absolutely stunning.

The mint green cabinet once belonged to my nan, she painted it mint green back in the 1950’s. The inside is covered with yellow and green stripe paper. So cool.

Few hats from different countries.
I always seem to forget my sun hat when travelling, so the collection has grown. Nice to decorate your wall with to.

Our house has now gone through 2.5 years of renovation, finally it’s come to an end. Yay!

I think celebration is in order.

This is a payed collaboration between me and Boråstapeter.
