Dos Visit Jenny´s own home 2013

Today we are going to take a deep dive into my own home. Let´s talk about the color pink. Why we have a stern women in our bathroom. John Waters. A rooster. A golden unicorn. A dead badger. And pencils without lids. This tour was featured on Design Sponge´s Sneak Peak a while back. You can read a little bit more there!

Enjoy!

We removed some cabinets in our kitchen to fit this bench. It was so worth it. Sure, we had to get rid of some stuff, but who needs 13 baking pans? Also we painted a big pink shape on the floor and wall. The fabric on the sofa is by Lisa Bengtsson.

Love my little dish-brush-holder. They are called Rosa Ljung, you can find them at fleamarkets all over Sweden.

Viola will be going nowwhere without her unicycle this summer.

Purple table painted by my father, the car painter. Both table and chairs are second hand. The lamp is from Gamla Lampor, Malmö. And if you are in Sweden you can buy the World Map here!

The candle holders are also second hand. Old 70´s wooded ones spray painted in a mix of Montana spray.

I bought this rooster lamp in Nebraska. The chair is from a fleamarket here in Ystad and when I had bought it a girl who follow me on Instagram said she is sure it is her old chair. How outrageous is that?! very.
And the picture on the wall is of Viola and a dead badger.

This is me. And behind me Rasputin cover by my Jens Grönberg.

Viola relaxing in Shampoodle clothes after reading a Scooby Doo comic book. It can be exhausting as you all know.
Other important info regarding this photo: The story of the sofa found here! Pillow and some of the prints from Fine Little day shop.  The mirror is from Ikea and the illustration of blushing Carl is from our own shop. Other art by Janeric Johansson. Carpet from Lauritz.

 

Folding is overrated.
PS. If you were paying attention you noticed that I was wearing these clothes in the picture before. And yes you are correct: that means I am shooting this picture in my underwear.

Bobby, election poster from Nebraska.

Not only is this a unicorn it is also golden.

This is Viola´s room.

This is her shelf.

And this is her door and her accordion.

I love women and I love horror. That is why these wicked ladies are in my bedroom. They are the first thing I see in the morning and the last thing I see at night.

And this stern looking women is what I see when I look in the mirror. She keeps me focused.

Some things scattered around my house. Guys from MASH. A nose for a kitty. Coffee. Pictures. And pens with no lids.
Last week I told you that The Wickedsisterhood is my bible. Well.. let me ad John Waters book Role Models to that list. It also has all the answered to my problems.

I LOVE your home and can I please move in? I probably would be most comfortable next to the awesome stuff and tiger door in violas room, but only if I also could have full access the horror ladies in the bedroom.

Så mycket fint. Mycket känner jag ju igen, men jag njuter gärna igen å igen.

Älskar särskilt tigern på dörren, enhörningen i guld (svansen var så krumt, nej inte grymt, krumt kul!), den uppfodrande rektorsdamen på toa (hua, vad fort man skulle borsta tänderna om hon fanns i närheten…) och att se Hawk-eye ligga där längst ner och därigenom bli påmind om en av de bästa serierna ever!

Fint Jenny, men hur mår du egentligen som vill vila ögonen på den hemskaste av klassiska duschscener. Varje morgon? Varje kväll? ;)

Alltså Jenny, du är så sjukt grym. Tavelväggen i sovrummet. Fullkomligt genial och jag ÄLSKAR att du älskar skräck. Det hade jag ingen aning om. Jag har precis skrivit en uppsats om våld i litteratur, och jobbar med ett skräcktema med mina elever – det finns inget så inspirerande som att pyssla med det man älskar om dagarna! Kan hända att jag stjäl din idé i framtiden, om det är ok med dig.

Kram Sarah

Sarah! Jag uppskattar så att du supportar mig. Älskar det. Tack!! Jo jag älskar skräck. Men sen jag blev mamma klarar jag bara av att se skräck som jag redan sett tusen gånger. Så jag vet när det blir läskigt.
Som tur är har jag hunnit se mkt skräck innan barnen kom så jag har ett bra arkiv jag kan kolla.

På tal om skräck : jag undrar om du sett “American movie” ? Den handlar om en kille som gör skräckfilm.
Det är min favoritfilm. Någonsin. Se den om du inte redan gjort.

Whenever I feel like I should decorate more grown up and classic, I go to your blog and realise that living like this is wonderful and I go out to buy more colorful stuff at fleamarkets that makes me happy. Thank you!

Scooby Doo has been a big thing for Viola for a long time. But now it is more Lady Gaga. Frank on the other hand loves it.

Hej! Tokfina bilder, och hem. Är speciellt förtjust i de två badrums/apoteksskåpen ni har i köket. Klockrent att ha massa randoma muggar och koppar i, istället för att gömma dem i mörka skåp :) Går skåpen att köpa någonstans eller är det loppisfynd?

I love the map dining room! I know you said your chairs are second hand, but I love them and wondered if there is any kind of label or manufacturer info on them?

Sooooo gorgeous, creative, and whimsical!
I have just begun to homeschool my oldest, and I would love to find an english version of the large world map like the one in your dining room.
I, too, would LOVE to know more about your leather, swivel lounge chair. The lines are perfect, and exactly what I’m looking for.

Thank you!!!

The chair is trickier. I bought it second hand and it does not have a tag.

Hi Jenny,
I love your home decor, especially the dinning area.
I am wondering that do you recall the color name of Montana spray you used for painted candle (the aqua one).
Thank you so much!
