A new place?

But now some good news! I’m checking out a room tonight, in a house shared with 3 other girls – one of which is a great colleague and friend of mine . The place sounds so nice, perfect for a first home! So if I’m lucky, by 2010 I’ll be moving out and into a little dwelling of my own!

My mom was even so good as to keep an eye open for things for me whilst thrifting and oh my, such treasures she has found me! One of them is actually a slightly damaged leather Chesterfield couch, for 40 euros! How amazing is that? Now the only question is..will it fit through the staircase at my possible new place? I hope it will, because I’m already in love.
As soon as it’s out of the garage, I’ll make some pictures!

Though I haven’t actually seen the room yet, I’ve already been scouting for inspiration! Let me show you a small part of my inspiration folder:

I’m thinking about a clean and white base, with lush colors to brighten it up.

A mix of new and old (for me also known as IKEA and thrift finds).

Warm wooden elements.

A rich yet light feel.

And not to forget floor to ceiling bookcases. Perhaps in a bright color?

Though I'll probably go nuts with color, as I always do. My previous room did deserve it's name Villa Villekulla..

All images are from Sköna Hem.

Sniff. Cough. Sigh.

I have been feeling a little under the weather lately. I have an awful cough, which is very awkward when sitting in an overcrowded train during this pandemic in which everyone seems have become a germaphobe, so I desperately try not to cough which of course mounts into an even worse coughing attack complete with teary eyes and dripping nose (oh yes, very charming – I know).. Daily I pack my bag with eucalyptol handkerchiefs, anti-bacterial crème, a bottle of water and throat pastilles and I’m taking extra vitamin C in the mornings. I’m getting desperate trying not to get sick, that with my luck when the fun part of this month starts – I’m going to be sick. Oh joy.

Girl crush

If only to be so elegant..
Instead of nerd faced, lushly eye browed, sneaker wearing, clumsy, fat Chinese man eyed (when smiling) me.
Ah well.
I think I'll live.
