Boligkrise episode 4 Stavern

Boligkrise episode 4, in Stavern.

The house we visited this time was furnished heavily and seriously detailed. A approach that did not apply to the buyers. Obviously. They had been trying to sell for a long time. And the whole house smelt smoke! Not good. AT ALL!

In the process of selling you home your have to make it inspiring, spacious and light. Appealing to the potencial group of buyers.

I had a serious job in front of me this time!

I took out all the furniture! I wanted a delicate maritim look. Using light blues, wooden items, natural bast, rope and white painted furniture and ALOT of paint I set the style.And added wallpaper in the hall and livingroom, a pattern which gave me a feeling of sailing! And Stavern is so close to the sea. Did keep the rocking chair that was inherited and some paintings.

The kitchen was renovated! I removed a few cupboard doors and delivered the others to a company that spray painted them. The walls were painted and new furniture added. And the huge counter-bar solution that divided the room was removed, they never used it anyway! Instead I put in a regular table, a perfect place to have breakfast!

I really love the way it turned out. And the owner, not liking blue at all, had too admit she liked it in the end after all!

Winter palm


I love this palm I bought last summer. Beautiful in the sun. Even more beautiful out in the snow.

I found it hard to believe it tolerates the cold so well, but it is a impressing little robust palmtree.

Etna terraccepalm (Chamaerops humilis var. Etna) is its name, originally from Sicilia.

And I must mention it has survived two hurricanes in the west, Rosendal where I live!

Now, that is a good buy!

The big flowerpot is from Jysk. 

Thrifted & treasured// Windowsill vignette


Texture. An element that makes personality. I am into natural & rustic materials. Constantly finding new treasures to add to my collection.

This bamboo coaster used to be in my fathers cabin upstate New York. I can remember it from a really young age. The beautiful butterfly.

A coaster. But I have never placed a cup on it. I didn`t want to hide those pearl colored wings. I still don`t!

The brown vase was bought the other day in a cafeshop in Rosendal Lille Tordivel. A small but charming cafe full of retro and nostalgia. Almost everything is for sale. The interior gives you the feeling of visiting your grandma. They have drinks & food there too. Not to mention their milkshakes!

The ceramic candleholder is from Fretex.

Favorites. All of them. Put together in my windowsill. A rustic vignette.

Keep it simple.
