When creating a home…

Since we moved here a year ago we have been building, planning and organizing in and around our home. In the beginning we did not even have running water and we have still not put a warm water geyser, I am still getting hot and enjoying a cold shower most of the days. But about now we have reach the fun state of creating a home. We are fixing the final touches and figuring out which furniture we want to have. Thinking about how the house should work for us and what we need to make that happen. So right now Pinterest is my best friend and a great source of inspiration. I have ordered a table and childrens chairs from a local carpenter and next week I am planning to go and order some more things. A bathroom vanity, a pantry for the kitchen, a kitchen island and a bar cabinet for the living room is on the agenda. And quite alot of different chairs. Am a fan of having different styles of chairs that still match each other.

Any of these two would be perfect for extra storage in the kitchen. We need somewhere to keep wine glasses and stuff that we want to be treated with care. Think it would look really good made in Zambian hard wood.

For a bar cabinet I like these two. They are pretty different but would both fit in to our living room just like this.

Chairs come in many beautiful shapes and it is just too difficult to choose. Pastels, colours, different pretty light shapes….

The fun thing is if you find a good carpenter here you can get almost anything made and exactly the way you want it. And it costs a fraction to what it would cost in Sweden. And you get furniture in solid wood that will last you a life time. And that is something that I have come to care more and more about.

If you want to see what I pinn on Pinterest I am allthingsdesigned there too.
