Bedroom in the making

Mood summer house bedroom by Anna MårseliusThis weekend has been all about getting ready for winter at the country house and also about making some changes interior wise. Our first project is one of the bedrooms that used to have only a double and a massive closet in it. The closet is now gone – love when things you don´t longer have need for end up being someone else´s treasure. Instead of the closet there is now a bunkbed for the kids so that we can sleep all four in one room. Next up is repainting the walls and adding details to make the room feel new again. We are aiming for a long lasting, classic and elegant look and feeling. Neutral colors all over, soft grey walls in combination with the wooden floor that has aged really beautifully. Can´t wait to finishing it all in a few weeks!

My mood board consists of mixed pics via Pinterest. 

September: On my mind

A few days in October already but can´t leave the beautiful month of September without putting together a list so here we go: 
Skärmavbild 2017-10-03 kl. 13.56.42

Travel: The only place I want to go to right now….our second home. Long walks by the sea, good food, sauna and after a very cold jump in the ocean you are as good as new.

shoes septShoes: I should probably look for Wellies but all I want now are these leopard prints. Preferably without the detailing though.

flower septFlower: Heading for Fall most of the flowers entering my home right now are in this shade. Love going darker when the evenings are getting longer and longer. Trying to embrace what´s to come. Also perfect combined with milky whites.

outfit septOutfit: This coat – ”Annecy” by Totême is more than welcome to join my closet.

bedroom septBedroom: This bedroom view goes hand in hand with my wishes of spending time in the country house very soon. Warm inside, crispy and moody outside. Perfect combination.

office septOffice: Hello dream space. I´m actually finally moving into an office (not this one though) but more of that in a later post.

Skärmavbild 2017-10-03 kl. 13.15.59Words: Words can not describe the feelings and thoughts that probably go on in all of our heads from one devastating act in the world to another. Please stop the hatred and let the light in.

mat septFood: Anything with chanterelles is on my wishlist right now. I´m probably going to have to go get some for tonight already. One of my absolute favorites. This chanterelles soup with bacon and goat cheese toast looks delicious.

Skärmavbild 2017-10-03 kl. 13.34.03Series: OMG it´s not for sensitive people, makes you feel sick at times but it´s also really good. Based on Margaret Atwood´s novel of dystopia Gilead, Elisabeth Moss is brilliant in the role as ”Offred”.

sustainable septSustainable pick: From September 30th until October 8th Naturskyddsföreningen are running the initiative of ”The environmental friendly week”. This time focus is what kind of beauty products we use and what is in them; soap, shampoo, lotions etc etc. We need to get better to make sure that what we are using is actually truly environmentally friendly and Naturskyddsföreningen is trying to help for example by putting their label on products that have been approved through their guidelines & also by pushing companies and others to only use approved products. You can read more and participate in the campaign here.

music septMusic: This song has been with me since released and I don´t get tired of it. If you haven´t already listened to it – take a few minutes now. Lana Del Rey feat. Sean Lennon with ”Tomorrow Never Came” of the Lust for Life album.

August: On my mind

Skärmavbild 2017-08-28 kl. 09.45.28Travel: Recently back from four lovely weeks in France and feel super spoiled not being done with the summer activities quite yet. Soon heading for Mallorca with my sister and mother to celebrate our mother´s 70th birthday & we are all beyond excited. Currently reading through all great tips of Sanna Fischer Nordström featured on her blog and all I wish is that we had more days to spend.

the vanessaShoes: These ”Vanessa” shoes in grey suede from Blankens have been sold out for a while but managed to get on the waiting list for next restock and therefore hopefully have these perfect Fall mini heels on my feet very soon.

Flower: I used to find Baby´s breath too romantic as an everyday flower but through the last years I´ve changed my mind and now use it quite often. On my kitchen table right now are leftovers from one of last week´s photoshoots with Baby´s breath mixed with Eucalyptus.

suitOutfit: Could this be the Fall where I´m becoming a suit person? I really hope so. Inspired by the Mango campaign video as well, think it´s a really nice one. You can see it here

Music: Not knowing anything else about this band than that this one track is one of the most beautiful songs I´ve ever heard and it´s been on repeat all summer long. Bell X1 with ”The Upswing”. Go on Spotify as well to listen without the video….
