wishful wednesday [deko]

by kmcopeland

This week’s installment of wishful wednesdays features a home from Deko, a Finnish magazine I found through this blog that I love.  Things I love about it include: 1) that they put their records on display and have a giant A on their wall (you might also remember that I’m really feeling this color palette lately);

2) the chevron floors (duh) and painted legs of the dining room table (a nice alternative to the painted chairs that you see so often these days);

3) the light, bright and airy kitchen;

4) that amazeballs wallpaper that I want likerightnow;

5) that ridiculously cute elephant vignette and monkey hook in the kids room; and,

6) everything about the simplicity and rustic feel of this balcony (porch?).

This lesson is concluded.

Lägenlove

This week’s featured flat has no chance of every being a reality for us, but it is too awesome not to share. Blogger Lotta Agaton is looking for a new home and posted pictures of this one last week. I love the high ceilings, the huge windows with amazing views and the pops of orange and yellow throughout the house. One can always hope…

 

 

 

 

Good news: it didn’t work for her family so it’s still available! Happy bidding!

Liberation

by kmcopeland

In the fall of 2010, my husband and I made a big decision. We would sell our house and all of our possessions – that’s right, ALL of our possessions – and move to Sweden.  Overwhelming? Of course. Exciting? Yes! But most of all, liberating. A tabula rasa; clean canvas; blank slate. Oh the freedom! I could now justify getting rid of those 1970s-in-a-bad-way dressers, that guest bed we hated but it was free, that “artwork” my husband couldn’t possibly part with…

I can hear your collective gasp of excitement! I too am ecstatic about finding that perfect flat and creating the house of my (ever-evolving) dreams. While in the house of my reality (a 300 square foot flat that is virtually empty), I will amuse myself with daydreams of all the things I will do when that day comes.  I invite you to join me on my adventure!

We begin with some wishful thinking…

 

Those windows!

 

Nice and simple

 

Those antlers...that green chair!

 

Sigh. That is all.

 

Now this is a bookcase.
