Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Saturday Sweets

Hi all, I hope you are having a great weekend!
I'm just about to pack away everything in our living room, because we have a painter coming on monday. It feels great to finally get this room in order, because as it is now, it looks horrible. As some of you know, I moved into my boyfriend's house when we were expecting Lo, and all of my stuff has been in storage ever since. So we have been living in this old bachelor pad of a house for almost two years now, and by bachelor pad I don't mean the cool luxurios kind, no I mean the messy unrenovated house of someone who don't care the slightest what things look like... I'll show you a before picture later. But now I'm looking forward to decorating this room! Below are some of the pictures I've been inspired by. Hopefully I can achieve something at least half as nice, but as we have no budget, it might take a while to get there. Luckily, there is always Ikea, and I have a sweet mother-in-law who can help me with anything fabric related!

    You have amazing taste and I'm sure it's going to look great. Sometimes it's better without a huge budget since then you are doing it more slowly and buy things you only really love!!
