Redesign kitchen -Before & after

DSC_5601An outdated kitchen can have alot of potencial. Like this one!
The kitchen doors were so dark and stuck in time. And there were way too may doors on the top row! It all gave the kitchen a lousy impression and the top row too alot of space! It was about time to do a facelift.

The doors were sent to a laquer company and the remains of the kitchen were painted in the chosen two different shades of grey. Both NCS. Top 1500 and bottom 2500.

A double closet on top was removed and replaced with two open shelves to give the room more air.

The rug is from one of the owners mother. A nostalgic element that inspired me. I chose a apricot color, found in the rug, and painted four chairs. The old wooden table in the kitchen was replaced with a smaller and more modern type, as a contrast to all the wood.

Reuse and redesign what you already have! And add a little new. That`s the best way to really make it personal! This is how it turned out!

Recycled greenhouse by the sea

DSC_0934IMG_0706

Now this a dream project! I have been thinking about it for ages. Making a green house of old windows.

Recycling. Reusing. Redesigning. Making an extra room with extraordinary light! Everytime I am at a recycling center I look at windows people have thrown away. Windows that have so much potencial!

It´s still a dream, but it will come true! One day!

Untill then I`ll hang out in this redesign greenhouse by the fjord. Not far from my house. A greenhouse made out of of windows from a building that was to be torn down. (Sundeprosjekt).

Rolf, the owner and handyman, built the greenhouse. And has done an amazing job. Not to mention esthetic. Accurate lines. Perfect symmetry. I am speechless.

The greenhouse has grapevines along three sides, and a wooden floor in the middle where he has made a work bench of left over wood, perfect for gatherings too!

What do you think? Read about it in the local paper Grenda and Kvinnheringen this week!

New York magnolias on the wall

DSC_1036This spring, on a trip to New York, I had the most amazing meeting with a park in full bloom. The magnolias in Central Park.

What a sight! I`m over average fond of flowers.

This instagram picture just had to wind up on my wall over my carpenter bench. Adding a little sweet to the rustic!

Me like!

Are your walls empty? Do you need something to hang on them?

Why not make your own art! I did!
