At last I got my walls renovated and cross-stitched pictures to an neat order. It became real frustrating to vacuum between the picture piles and living in an unfinished environment. I do love to have new ideas and decorate my home but I don´t like long gaps between before and after. Of course after the period in progress it feels extra good to look at the result that pleases the eye.
After I had painted the living room wall I went to the local hardware store and found some very good wallpaper from the sale. It cost only 1 euro per roll of about ten meters! (note: The reason for sale is that they don´t keep it in their collection anymore, before it cost 39 euros) The beautiful tulip pattern is nostalgic, romantic and modern at the same time. It fits all the styles I am combining in my home and makes the pale white wall a bit softer.
As you can see there are also other good ways to use wallpaper. I used some green wallpaper to renovate my bookshelves to fit my taste. A wallpaper makes boring 90´s bookshelves look more fun and pretty. The door knobs were wooden and I used golden spray paint to them.
This Christmas I am combining Indian style with luxurious materials, colors and bling bling to nostalgic Scandi style. I got inspired by new Maria Lång films that take place in the beautiful 1950´s and Pinterest´s bohemian decoration ideas. Also the wintry weather makes me want more warm materials and colors. Next weekend it is the first Advent and most of the people take their Christmas ornaments from the storage. Even though I have taken a bit lead, most of my decorations and plastic Christmas tree are waiting to get on their place. Can´t wait till weekend!
