A sleeping loft in a studio apartment - i've always wanted one of these.
Here are some inspiring decors for small apartments as seen in Domino Magazine.
We'll be moving into our new apartment in a month so we're looking for new ideas. More ideas to inspire ....... :)

These illustration's of cars on the signboards on the way to the train station look like they were from the 70's. My favourite is the one with the 50 cents sign, it looks like a limousine, the kind that the Chinese make out of cardboard to burn for their dead ancestors. Time for an update! :) hehe.

This post is about 6 months late but i just thought i'd put up a pix of the room we did up for Zain's arrival. Je and i painted the walls and i painted and put up the shelf and the letters that make up his name. All the wooden toys and the cute bird hooks are from a toy store in Takashimaya that sells the most gorgeous wooden toys. Below is the view from his room! :)
I've just realised i've got Zain three posts in a row.....what can i say! i'm a proud aunt!

Along with always wanting to know how to sew, i've also always wanted to learn how to knit (and play the violin and be a florist and be an interior designer). For now i'm working on the learning to knit bit and so far my first attempt has been rather unsuccessful. I was working on making Joakim the glorious green scarf you see on the instructional card but ended up with a smaller piece that i thought would make great finger warmer for him. :) I've also added a "J" on it so that he know's it's his! Maybe a scarf the next time huh. :)

The Swedes have extremely good taste. And i'm not just saying that coz my husband's Swede :) The Swedish furniture and products i've stumbled on online have made me go oooh aaaahhh.
I'm so excited to dress up the apartment in Sweden, we've already planned to go second hand furniture shopping for the best deals, take it home and work on giving it a fresh coat of paint together or get it fixed up with new fabric. It would be something we'd look forward to doing together. You're all welcome to visit okie dokes!
