My kitchen in Stockholm

Maybe I have showed you this before but I am in a kitchen mood so lets look at it again.
This is my kitchen at home in stockholm. It still looks like this just a lot more messy.

I am most pleased with my tiles.
I had the opportunity to look around Kakel Kompaniets old storage for odd bits and pieces. First I lay the puzzle on my floor before me. After that me and my father tiled it to the wall.
Love the impact it has on the whole room- something special but still it doesn’t take over the overall image. Important in an open space like this.

I wish the Kitchen Aid was mine. It’s not. Don’t believe everything you see – folks.
The wallpaper is actually wrapping paper from Hanna Werning – I did only the selves you see in this photo when we took the shots. I just attached them with pieces of scotch that I rolled. It’s still there – as perfect as ever! Unbelievable since I thought it would last 15 minutes!

The stove and cabinets are from Ikea- I just painted them in another color.
The cabinets – that is.

The kitchen top is made of tinted concrete. Tinted black it looks like Granite. I was so impressed by the guys who carried this one all the 5 flight up to our apartment. 600 kg.

The knobs are what you used to hang electricity wires on – back in the days.

Once a year my home maybe looks like this. When the kids are far away and I lend my apartment to some friends…
But imagine this and then throw in toys, old cookies, dust, some smelly socks and other nasty things
– then it looks like where I am sitting right now!

    The cabinets look almost like velvet. And I love your lamps … and everything else.

    Sååååå snyggt!
    Börjar tröttna på våra svarta Ikea-luckor i köket, kanske skulle kunna måla om… Hur målade du om dina, gjorde du det själv eller lämnade in för spraymålning?

    Lovely! My grandparents had chairs exactly like the ones at your table – now I wish we had kept them!

    Thank you – glad you like it!

    Vi lämnade in luckorna så att de sprutmålades- håller lite mer då och jag ville ha den finishen.

    The table and chairs are Ikea- from the 50′

    Have a great week- end you all!

    Utrolig fint kjøkken. Nydelig farge på kjkkenskapene og flisene var bare helt utrolige. Fine farger i hele rommet. Like!!

    Isabelle: ja mycket färg men det funkar ändå. Kul att du gillar det!

    I love your kitchen! You & your Dad did a great job with the tiles. And I must say I adore your sense of humour!!!! I had a great laugh- thanks! I’m soooo relieved: my place isn’t the only one where you find old cookies & smelly socks!

    Isabelle: thanks! I guess we all do have À smellier home than it looks in photo’s. ;-)

    Sjukt fint kök! Älskar att du blandat olika kakel- helt brilliant! Varifrån kommer tvålpumpen? Antar att det var ett tag sen du köpte den, men man kan ju försöka…

    Oj oj det är sjukt snyggt och inspirerande! Den där gammalgröna taklampan, var är den ifrån? Har ju sett den flera gånger och älskar, nu ska jag flytta in i ett nytt kök, skulle passa utmärkt :)

    That tile!!!! I think that is the most creative backsplash I have ever seen. Funky yet so simple! Beautiful!
