floor update

I just realized that I haven't updated on the outcome of this meeting in february.
The floors are ordered and the deal is signed and sealed.
We chose the Dinesen Douglas planks for our living room and the kitchen.
For the bedrooms we chose the Dinesen Douglas Natural,
which have a bit more and larger knots than the Douglas planks.
We also chose full lengths, which means that some of the planks will be 10,5 m long.
When it comes to the finishes, we chose a soap-finished floor.
The thickness of the planks will be 35 millimetres with a width of 35 centimetres.

The first delivery, for the bedrooms, is in just two months,
and I can tell you that both my hubby and I are super excited.
Feels very surreal to finally get the floors of our dreams.
Stay tuned for more updates.

spring mood

Love these styling images of the Vipp ceramics.
So fresh and inspiring, and put me in the right spring mood.

I am very up for a spring break, maybe something like last year,
but this year we'll be working on our house, and all travels have to wait.
Luckily I have no issues with spending our holiday here at home,
seeing progress in our renovation makes me so happy.
That means that we're one step closer to our dream home.

It might be some quiet days here on my blog in the upcoming weeks.
I hope you’ll all have a fabulous spring.

Busy days here lately.
We're working on our house, both inside and outside.
Well, we actually have a small break now, due to my hubbys back injury.
Nothing dramatic, but he do needs recovery and TLC.
Since my last update we've taken a decision about the floors.
It’s going to be the most beautiful floor in the world.
I'll be back with some more updates later.
Happy Thursday!

Named the 'World's most beautiful object' in 2009.
On top of my wishlist right now.

While everyone is talking about the styling by Lotta Agaton,
I'm actually more interested in the bathroom design concept Swoon.
Swoon is produced in Scandinavia and sold online.
And the concept is that you can customize your own bathroom furniture,
with the choice of color, handles, legs and faucets.
I especially like the Side series.
So simple and minimalistic, but very beautiful.

Happy new week!

Have you ever visited the Swedish cake blog call me cupcake?
If not, then it is about time you did.
So many beautiful pictures of so many delicious cakes.
Today I'm sharing three of my favorites from the blog;
cherry vanilla cake, cherry pavlova and no-bake berry cheesecake.
If my KitchenAid was still working, yes it broke again,
I would definitely make one of these this weekend.
Definitely saving it for another time.
Happy Friday sweet people!

insta coffee





A lot of coffee moments @nordicleaves lately.
Just to compensate for the lack of interior photos I guess.
Nothing much happening here right now,
except that we're in the middle of the bedroom renovation.
Until I'm ready to show you the renovation outcome,
coffee moments will have to do.
xoxo, the coffee lover
