our home renovation is totally behind the schedule (somehow we are not surprised?), and i really, really cannot wait to the day when everything is done done. i miss the days of making saturday morning breakfast without needing to going in/out through the plastic sheeting… well, you know.

definitely we’ll be so proud of ourselves when this renovation is done.

spotted this beautiful kitchen with some impossibly beautiful details and ample of natural sunlight. you can read the full article here to learn more about the kitchen layout.

have a nice week ahead!

love the vintage modern atmosphere in this 58 M² apartment from stockholm. it is also very interesting to see what the place looks like before it’s put on the market… definitely have more personality. click here to see a house tour from lovely life.

i think they look pretty awesome.
