My home: dining areas!

Monday, 28 May 2012

Morning! I hope you had a wonderful weekend?! Sometimes, an entire weekend at home is just what you need. It helped that the weather was hot hot HOT here in Sweden!.. And I finally got around to putting up my vintage industrial lamp, a birthday present from my parents. Sooo pleased! Here are a few snaps from my kitchen / dining area complete with my little three year old who was busy making me a Mother's Day card, awwww.....

A little guide: The white storage units are Swedish brand Marbodal. The vintage industrial lamp was sourced online. The Andy Warhol poster is from malmö moderna museet. It's actually a placeholder for now as I'm looking for a great 70's print with a touch of colour. The chair my little three year old is sitting on is trip trap. You may have seen my mid century drinks trolley before here! All my purple / pink cushions are from my favourite, Designers Guild. The floor was originally dark oak which we sanded down and white-washed to brighten up the room.

I have soooo many projects left for this room, my next step is to source an eclectic mix of vintage dining chairs. Watch this space!!

A belated Happy Mother's day to all you beautiful Swedish Mummy's out there! Niki x

    1. Thank you Jen!! The winters are just so dark here that the most important goal is to let as much light in as possible and then bounce it around the home!

    1. Thank you Nick! A good quality blackboard paint is so practical, we have used ours loads and it works just as well as any standard blackboard. I also love the 'soft mat' finish too, it makes it less harsh than just painting a wall black. A magnetic blackboard paint could be even more useful and fun....next time :)

  13. Hi niki - what a great blog - totally hooked! Wondering whether you can advise how I can can get hold of an Andy Warhol picture such as yours - it seems they are impossible to get hold of in England!

    Thanks

    1. Hi Zosia, I don't think you can buy them in the UK, and in fact they are in such high demand in the Malmö modern museum shop they have even had to limit the number you can buy! Crazy! So I think a trip to Malmö or Stockholm is your only way (great excuse for a trip?!!).
