Good morning to you, the kids got up at 4am this morning, but we’re making progress from yesterday, yay. I thought I’d show you what Sally’s room looks like now. It’s so nice!
Photo taken after we’d just moved in.
… and this is what it looks like after Ida have refurnished.
I LOVE IT ALL! It’s girly, cozy and balanced all at the same time. And the colors are shades of pink, grey and mint. Sally’s cot comes from NG Baby “Sun” and hanging above is a canopy from IKEA with little lights inside (don’t know if this is all sold as a package). We brought the ceiling light EOS with us from the last flat, the chest of drawers comes from IKEA, the boxes from Alice & Fox. The rug is bought at MIO and the dress rack from IKEA.
We’ve kept the guest bed in here. As parents with young kids, that guest bed is the only way we manage to get some sleep. Odd and I normally go to bed together in our bedroom and then the kids come over during the night (the coziest ever), but some nights when the kids are not sleeping well or that one parent need to get some undisturbed sleep, it’s great to have an extra bed.
Loads of lights, but that’s needed during this time of the year. I read somewhere that every room should have seven sources of light to get the right level of illumination. This is from Alice & Fox.
Comfy nursing armchair from EM möbler, which will fulfill its task whenever we finally remove the guest bed (we have the same sort of armchair in Gillis’ room). It was important to us to buy two, so that we could actually take a nap in or fall asleep in on the nights where it takes longer than normal for the kids to fall asleep. Or to read a book together and sit comfortably with a child in your lap.
Fabulous shelf from Bloomingville/Royal Design. It is black on the outside and wood inside, which makes such a lovely contrast in this room.
It is all about the tiny details, Ida’s made me realize that (and also made me realize how rubbish I am when it comes to this). I would never have bought two tiny ceramic pots from the internet, I simply wouldn’t have had this vision. But isn’t it great?
Wall decor from Ferm Living
Sally’s kitchen from Lekmer, couldn’t find the precise link. Gilis has a cafe/kitchen in his room, so Sally was given one of her own. As soon as he spotted it, Gillis said “Mummy, Sallah and I can share”. Think he got a bit envious. I answered “Course, but you must show Sally what to do, she doesn’t know how to cook yet.” Then they kept themselves busy with that for about half an hour.

Giving the kids beautiful rooms have been the most fun and most important part of the whole house procedure. Odd and I are really passionate about the house being play friendly. Many “stations” where they can go crazy. But as kids get older, this is also an ever-changing process – which make it even more fun. Later on this spring, we’ll buy a play house for our garden, OMG I am so looking forward to making that nice together with Gillis. I heard about one family that had a play house, which was a “shop”. Sounded like fun.
