Cute ideas for a kids room under the roof

attic room for kids

Ola! Wow. I know… I am not very good with updating this blog super regularly at the moment. Sorry. I would love to, but life tells me different…

I also want to update you really urgently about the whole move and how things are going (not that great) but I just cannot really find a good moment to sit down and write. We are moving forwards but also backwards so it is hard to keep up. And to stay ‘cool’ to be honest… but really, more on that soon.

Right now we are talking attics, because I felt an interior post is a great thing to come back here and also because I am all attic at the moment.

Why you wonder?

The house we rent at the moment, here in London, has an attic that is basically our life saver. It is a huge storage area and makes it possible for us to live in a smaller space without feeling ‘stuffed’. And since the moment I put my feet in there I am making imaginative plans (when I am bored which I am not so basically it is when I try to feel asleep at night) on how to turn that storage into another living area.

And isn’t an attic a really cool place for a kids room? Maybe not a nursery, unless you have more rooms under that roof but I am more thinking about tweens and teens. It has a super cosy feel and also makes it a bit like a universe just for yourself?!

Let’s have a look into some English family homes

… and change a bit from the Scandinavian style I have shared so often.

What? Already? You may think… she just moved and is already put the switch. Ha, no I did not but I thought it would be fun to show you something else. And you will see the difference immediately. I find that very interesting.

Of course, we are aware of the monochrome and very simple approach on the Nordic Countries, so for me seeing colours and homes filled with bits and treasures is so enchanting.

You know that I like it ‘clean’ but you also know that I found the Scandinavian homes often a little too impersonal and especially too similar. They all look the same. Grey! Mostly… and then you can add the latest details (blankets, table ware and shelves) and voila… your Scandi Castle :)

I am exaggerating. Of course!

But lets have a look into these colourful spaces based in Kent and Sussex:

Cool Brooklyn loft turned fun family home

Paul & Paula: Brooklyn family loft

We are back with Interior Tuesday and I have this super awesome family loft situated in Brooklyn to share with you.

Owners Dylan Dodd and Elisa Restrepo’s and their two children are living here. And the apartment really grew with the family. What started with a kitchen renovation was turned into fitting in space for their first child. A couple of years later, another space had to be found for arrival number two.

The apartment is an airy 2,000 square feet and occupies the second floor of a converted 1800s schoolhouse in South Williamsburg. And you can find the ‘traditional’ whitewashed brick and some very cool statement lighting. Adding an eclectic blend of textures, materials, and artwork, voila, the perfect family loft that combines modern design and parenthood.

14 joyful things for your November!

14 joyful things for your November!

Sending you into the new months with some really cool stuff. Reads, finds and interiors. November is (nearly) here and I know… it is not everyone’s favourite month of the year.

So let’s just believe that the golden autumn weather will stay and in case of grey skies and rainy days… you can just enjoy this list.
By the way – are you all set for Halloween today?

I am so curious on what will happen here in London. Because in Sweden Halloween was not (yet) a big deal. Some parties, mostly at school, and maybe a bit of decoration at home. But not much trick or treating…
The kids are super excited, of course!

Why kids and parents love these children’s interior accessories!

childrens-interior-accessories-ferm-living

I wanted to just share this post without saying much about our current situation. But then I remembered a little story from Friday.

The six of us at the airport, heading out of Scandinavia and into our new country. We are in a shop and about to pay, when the lady at the counter asked the kids ‘Are going home tonight?’
Silence.

Awkward moment. The lady looked at us and then I explained that this is a tricky question at this moment. And a reply would take a little while.
But it also summed up the current state of mind over here. In between places, in between good byes and hellos and in between all kind of feelings and emotions.

Once we are settled a little (our stuff is supposed to arrive today) I will try and write another article about this whole moving thing.

But for now, we are talking kids interiors. More precisely the new children’s collection from Ferm Living Kids. It is truly too adorable.

As always, Ferm Living Kids nails it when it comes to the perfect mix of kids friendly yet stylish, appealing to parents and somehow super cute but not kitsch. Scandinavian style with lots of charm and a timeless style.
