Living space

Brinklercph 3

Living space is the perfect word for our dinning-, kitchen and tv room which are three rooms all brought together. The open kitchen and dinning room space is especially nice when we have company because you can prepare dinner while still being a part of the conversion. The renovation of these three rooms hasn’t been extensive. We removed an old built-in book case and had the wall rebuilt. Otherwise we just painted the walls and sanded the 60 year old oak floors. Because the room where we wanted to place our sofa had a pinewood floor, we decided to place a wall to wall carpet to reduce the diference between the very beautiful oak hiring bone floors and the pinewood.

Now we just need a little bit more on the walls, but I’m already pretty happy about the result. Here are some pics to give you an idea of what I’m talking about…

Ordet Living space er ret så passede for vores nye spise-, køkken og tv-stue, der er tre rum, der i fin harmoni hænger sammen. Det åbne køkken i forlængelse af spisestuen er særligt rart at have, når vi har gæster, fordi du kan lave mad uden at være afskåret fra selskabet. Renoveringen af de tre rum har ikke været så omfattende, for køkkenet var der allerede, og standen var generel god overalt. I tv-stuen fjernede vi en indbygget bogreol, hvorefter vi fik væggen genopbygget.  Derudover har vi malet væggene og fået slebet og olieret de 60 år gamle egetræsgulve. I tv-stuen var der fyrtræsgulv, hvilket stod i ret stor kontrast til den flotte sildebensparket i de resterende rum. Derfor besluttede vi at få lagt et sort gulvtæppe for at udligne forskellen.

Nu mangler vi bare lidt mere på de hvide vægge, men jeg føler mig allerede godt tilpas og er tilfreds med resultatet so far. Her er lidt billeder, så du kan få en idé om, hvad jeg taler om

This is where I relax – reading in the light of the Grashopper lamp from Gubi and the candlelight from By Lassen

The carpet in this room turned out pretty good and keeps the Bauhaus Bar wagon from sliding – also from Please Wait To Be Seated

This window gives the house so much personality and lots of light

Design makes me happy

This week I was lucky to have two days off from work where I had no special plans but to take the time to relax, reading, watch a good movie and of course finding inspiration for this blog. I also took time to take some photos in my home and thought I might share some of my faverite designs with you. It’a amazing how you can get in a good mood by looking at beautiful things. Do you feel the same way?

Denne uge har budt på to feriedage, hvor jeg ikke havde andre planer end at slappe godt og grundigt af, læse, se en god film (eller to!) og selvfølgelig bruge tid på at finde inspiration til alt det, jeg vil dele med dig på denne blog. Jeg brugte desuden tiden på at tage billeder herhjemme og tænkte, at jeg ville dele nogle af mine ynglingsdesigns med dig. Design og indretning betyder primært noget for mig, fordi jeg bliver i godt humør af at se og omgive mig med smukke ting. Har du det på samme måde?

SE 68 Dinning chair

In 1951 Egon Eiermann designed SE 68 Dinning chair and now Danish brand Please Wait to be Seated has put the elegant yet cool and modern chair into production. I’m considering if it’s suitable as an office chair in my home office and will have to try how comfortable it is. The chair was originally produced in teak and that’s definately the version I like the must. However you can get it in a large number of colors and wood. The price is between 2000-4000 DKK.

Egon Eiermann designede SE 68 stolen tilbage i 1951, og nu har danske Please Wait to be Seated sat den i produktion. Det er jeg rigtig glad for og går og overvejer, om den vil egne sig som kontorstol i stedet for den Eames DSR stol, vi har nu. Materialet er jeg ret sikker på – det skal være teaktræ, men stolen fås i et hav af farver og træsorter. Priserne ligger mellem 2000-4000 kr. Teaktræsmodellem er en limited edition, der kun sælges i Danmark og desuden det materiale, stolen oprindeligt blev produceret i.
