I have been living in my 50ties house in Rosendal since 2012. Each room has gone through renovation. It´s modern with lots of original details kept.
I live here with my cat Julipus and rent out three bedrooms & the whole house on Airbnb.
Have shown some of the house renovation on my blog earlier. But I thought I`d show you some more. This is the second floor. A room that leads to bedrooms and bathroom.
It used to be worn out with dark walls, red outdated linoleum covered the floor with wooden laquered plank under, that had turned brown through the years. Not exactly dream interior…. I had a desire to keep some of the old details under the renovation.
The wooden medicine closet has been here since 1954. The previous owners of the house built it once upon a time. I had to keep that!
The charming retro closets and the diagonal ceiling were kept too. They both remind me of my grandparents home! So 50`ties.
The walls were painted in a light minty color that reflects the light. Color “Vårljus” from Beckers. The floor is covered with wall to wall carpet tiles that make it cosy and reduce sound in the rooms underneath. The tiles are 40 cm squares taped together. If one is damaged, it is easily replaced. The lime strings under the ceiling are the strings of the Pantone One chair (earlier Tivoli chair), a gift from Montana. Perfect for hanging up clothes to dry! And the color a cool contrast to the light green walls.
The room is furnished with old and new of course!
Here is a picture from the hall on the first floor. You kind of get the picture of what the rooms looked like before I started renovating! Sorry do not hav an origianl picture of the second floor. Nothing was done in the house since the 60`ties.
