Springing into Spring!

Mille juste left, along with ma and pa... and I must say it's all of the sudden very still in my home... But I have lit a million candles (well okay, so there are "only" 34... uhm yeah) and listening to laid back music, sipping some wonderful coffee... and enjoying the sight of my newly decorated dining room... Me and Mille did it... at 3am this morning.. that's how nuts we are... Pictures are taken by Mille, styled by me.

Remember this? This is how the diningroom (and part of the livingroom too) looked like in the prospect. When I first loooked into buying the house. The lady that lived here before left me the sofa, tv and dining table. Which I painted... The colours were all dark and in the 90's. Not to my taste at all....

I started out dreaming of a home that felt like a calm, cool summer's day, all year around... A vision I have carried out to my best effort. And I guess I am very happy with all my finnished rooms, but the dining room is the best example of that vision. Colours are kept in pale pale (almost white) green, egg blue hues, teals and greens. With a few darker details. The "theme" is birds, and I have decorated with birds throughout.
I am still waiting for my chandlier to come up, hopefully dad will do it soon enough... The chairs are painted in two subtly different shades of egg blue. One is called "lavender" a very old colour often found in kitchens from the past.

of course we had our breakfast in the new room... and enjoyed newly bought tulips! The table is painted white by me. It used to be pinewood.

Of course I am a sucker for candles... and we sat there for ages, drinking coffee out of my favorite greengate cups!
Detail shots of my bird cage... I just love that cage... and I have so many ideas for it!
the buffet I bought on finn.no, I was going to paint it... but I have painted *everything* white, and Ole said it started to look very diffused... no contrasts... so I figured, why not *try* it in dark wood first, and see if I like it? And I think I do, I think I even might LOVE it! What do you think? White or dark? Either way though, it will stay this way untill summer. And I am going to change the knobs...
Details from the buffet. Of course, I had to decorate with dragonflies.... gifts from Darcy! My fantastic friend in the US.
And yesterday, when Mille arrived, she came bearing gifts!!! I was so surprised!!! What could they contain? Mille knows my style and taste so well, I just KNEW it would be brilliant...
and it was... check out that greengate pitcher! I ADORE it, and I cant wait till spring so I can fill it with fresh picked flowers. I also got a greegate tablecloth... which you can see on the kitchen table in my last post.
I think the diningroom has gone through some majour changes!!! A full view will be posted once my chandelier is in place... becuase the lamp I have now... is just horrible!!! Ha ha...

Have a great saturday!

Hei og takk for hyggelig kommentar inne hos meg!
Nydelig blogg du har, masse fint og inspirerende å se på. Hvitmaling er ofte det beste og enkleste... :-)
Ha en flott helg videre.
Klemmer, Sussen

Hei:-)

Så utrolig fint du gjør det! Jeg elsker fargene dine, det blir skikkelig lekkert:-)

Bra at kalven overlevde, det kan være ganske kritisk noen ganger. Jeg har jobbet med en dyrlege da jeg skulle studere til veterinær, og det var dessverre ikke alltid det gikk bra. Men desto bedre når livet står til å redde:-)

Du, jeg skulle nok presisert bedre, for jeg ønsker selvsagt ALLE mødre til lykke med dagen i morgen, også matmor!

Ha en toppers lørdagskveld!
Klem fra Britt:-)

Så fint du har fått det! Maling gjør underverker på furu! Når det er sagt er jeg enig med deg i at kontraster må man ha - så la buffeten din være mørk du. Jeg har også shoppet masse på Finn i det siste. Utrolige ting man finner og noen ganger er man heldig og finner noe til gode priser også! Ha en fortsatt fin helg.
