Industrial inspired

Industrial style lamps are just the coolest. Adds so much character to the house! And can be done yourself. No need to pay a lot of money, just go thrift shopping and get what you need!! Gathering some inspo, have some cool ideas myself 💡 

How cool are these?

Kitchen sneak peak

Finally, after months and months of wait, our kitchen has been installed. Took the boys two whole days. Also our friend tiled the hot wall over the weekend and now we need to put the oven in place as well. As you can see, we renovated and kept the old chimney. Looks nice I think:

Our hand made stairs take you from upstairs straight to the kitchen:

I haven’t taken many photos, since the place is still quite a mess, I really want to share everything, when it is move in ready and I have a proper daylight to take all the pictures. But took a quick photo after the first night it was installed. The cabinets are vanilla colored. I orginally wanted white cabinets but there were some issues with that color so we took vanilla. It goes quite well with the foor it think as well. Also we need to order our splashback glass for the kitchen.

The guys who did our kitchen are also doing our bathroom cabinets. So It has the same vibe as the kitchen, but in white!

List of the things we still need to do before we can move in(or what we want to finish before we move in):

  • Install our oven in the kitchen
  • Install our bathroom cabinets
  • Finish downstairs living area flooring + upstairs extra bedroom floor
  • Install kitchen splashback
  • To place our fireplace which came with the house and also we need to put a glass underneath it
  • Put all of our furniture together
  • + put up curtain poles and all that small stuff.

We will leave our extra bathroom undone at the moment. We can do later when we have settled in. And that will be the only room not finished yet.

And I need to clean my ass off at some point when all of the dirty work is done, all the windows, floors and walls!! 🙂 

 

 

Curtain hunt/Kardinate otsing

Olen juba ilmselt kaks kuud tegelenud kardinate otsimisega ja ostmisega. All elutoas-söögitoas on mul nad õnneks olemas. Valituks said helehallid külgkardinad ja valged päevakardinad. Küll aga on tõelist peavalu valmistanud magamistoa kardinate leidmine. Selleks on mitu põhjust. Esiteks, meil on küllaltki madalad laed ja ühe suure akna all on radiaator. Ning kõige tipuks on see suhteliselt kehva asukohaga, nimelt on meil uks kohe akna kõrval, mis elimineerib tavalise kardinapuu. Olgu, see selleks. Saab ka ju siiniga hakkama, kuid mulle tekitab frustratsiooni see, et ma ei saa klassikalisi kardinaid sellel aknal kasutada. Ja lühikesi kardinaid ma kohe kindlasti ei taha, sest need on lihtsalt nii nilbed ja poolikud. Pean sinna leidma ruloo ja teisel aknal kasutama siis külgkardinaid ning päevakardinaid. Kuna aken on küllaltki pikk, nimelt 275cm, siis on nende ruloode leidmine ka parajalt frustreeriv. Minu esmane valik ja unistus oli sinna aknale saada rooma kardinad, mida saaks materjali poolest kombineerida ja sobitada teise aknaga selles toas. Lisaks on need soojad ja hubased, kui tavaline ruloo.

Hakkasin siis suure hurraa’ ga pakkumisi võtma. Vastati erinevatest firmadest päris kiirelt. Kuid mu positiivsus sai küllaltki kiiresti hoobi, sest hinnad on väga kõrged. Tallinna firmad tegid hinna poolest päris soodsad pakkumised, ca 150 eurot oli vist see keskmine. Kuid minu jaoks on kõige veidram see, et ma pean minema füüsiliselt kohale ja kanga valima. Mitte ükski firma ei paku internetis kanga valikut ja kohale toomist. Nii et pealinn jääb mängust välja. Asusin siis Tartumaalt otsima. Tartu firmad muidugi ületasid ennast mäekõrguselt. Hinnad on poole kõrgemad. Kõige kõrgem hind kardinate eest oli 474 eurot. Kas te teete nalja? Saan aru, et mehhanism on kallis ja kangas samuti, aga kordan veel, et kas te teete nalja? Mida kõike ma saaksin selle raha eest oma koju soetada? Ma saaksin diivani selle raha eest!! Plaanisin juba ise selle mehhanismi ostmist ja õmblemist, aga siis mõtlesin, et ma ei hakka mingit nikastust ka aknale tegema. Võtsin siis aja maha ja mõtlesin veelkord üle, mida selle toaga teha. Ainuüksi sellele rooma kardinate saagale mõtlemine ajab mul vererõhu kõrgeks 😀 Sest kui ma tellin need kardinad sellise summa eest, võivad olla pärast need võib-olla kasutud, kui soovin teha toale make-overi. Peaksin võtma siis need kindlasti valget värvi, sest nii on kõige lihtsam sobitada neid mööbli, voodikatte ja teiste kardinatega. Liiga suur commitment hetkel!

Hakkasin siis uuesti inspiratsiooni otsima. Kuigi mulle algul tundusid tavaliselt basic rulood rõvedad, siis tegelikult ei olegi nad väga hullud. Pealegi, on nad väga minimalistlikud ja kasutuses vaid õhtul, kui magamaminek on. Päeval on ikka üles keritud. Värvuseks sobiks valge, sulandub hästi seinaga kokku. Lihtne sobitada ka ülejäänud toaga!

Rooma kardinad siis sellised, kui keegi ei tea:

Lihtsam variant ilma mehhanismita:

kardin

Kardinate mõttes on meil väga vaene valik siin. Internetipoodides samamoodi. Jutustasin just oma õega, kes elab Stockholmis ja nendel see valik ikka kordi suuremaid. Kadedaks ajas 🙂 

Meie magamistoa vibe tuleks siis selline:

modern-bedroomMG_8055dc04a4ce77ab7c4f6cc8348e1d335a54

Olen hakanud mõtlema ka tegelikult heleroosade kardinate peale magamistoas. Ma küll armastan halli-valge kooslust, sest see on väga puhas, on see ka väga külm ehk. Äkki lisada soojust just blush tooni kardinatega. Pean veel seda oma peas läbi mõtlema. Lisaks olen leidnud megatuusad sametist kardinad. Aga samas ka linane on hakanud väga meeldima. Mõlemad annaks materjali mõttes nii palju toale juurde. Rasked otsused 🙂

Back on track.

So holidays are over and getting back to our daily routines. Did not make any resolutions, but Im trying not to eat so much chocolate anymore. Plus getting back on the wagon after not tracking my eating in november and december. Ate junk food, did not make healthy eating choices at work as well. Gained couple of kg’s due to that and after eating clean for a week lost them quite quickly. Since Im not working out regularly, gotta at least eat good, right!? But, It is really hard not to have sweets, because Im a serious chocoholic. Even my chocolate face mask seems really yummy 😐😀.  But Im trying to fool my brain with fruits as much as possible.

Hope everyone is enjoying the first days of January!

 

Happy holidays!

Hope everyone has a wonderful christmas time with their loved ones. This year has gone by so fast, it’s ridiculous. So many plans for next year, not making any resolutions, but having some dreams, that hopefully come true.

What are you hoping next year will bring? Are you making any New Years resolutions?

Merry christmas and a happy new year to all!! 🎄

Recovering!

So I was battling with bronchitis for a whole month and I finally feel like myself again. No matter how many vitamins you take or how healthy and active you are, when you get a virus, It doesn’t spare you with anything. I missed working out so much and was so sick and tired of being in home and being ill not being able and allowed to do anything. So finally great to be back at work and on track again. Even though it is really dark after work I still try to go out and have a power walk hour plus some lifting weights after. Also to avoid being tired and exhausted all the time + restless sleeping, started taking magnesium as well. I think it is working, Im not waking up in the middle of the night and can sleep quite peacefully throughout the night. And I need my sleep, because I wake up every day at 5 a.m to get to work at 7 a.m, so as you could imagine, doing that 5 days in a row, is quite extreme.

Plus I have been “clean” for about two weeks now. Kicked a bad habid in the ass and now trying to adjust and get used to my life without it. 

 

 My favorite sandwich: beetroot parsnip whole grain bread with avocados, fried eggs and veggies. Could eat this 24/7. I know you shouln’t eat eggs too much, but I eat eggs every day and couldn’t imagine my lunch wthout it 🙂

And already getting into christmas spirit, holidays are just around the corner and Im feeling quite happy about it. Which is weird, because i was very antichristmas for a long time!

Have a great sunday!

Shelf-ladder for bathroom.

 

I’ve seen these shelf-ladders before, especially on Instagram, but I just now realized, that I need one as well. And It actually is a fantastic idea for a bathroom that doesn’t fit many cupboards or other cabinets. Now I have to find a place that sells or make these in Estonia, because  I’ve only seen basic ladders for towels so far… 🙂

Black metal decor

Planning to use a lot of black metal shaped decor in our future house. Luckily H&M home gives us a helping hand and offers a lot of cool interior ideas with good prices. I also have few metal things at home. Two of them are going to be bedside tables, I just need to add wooden plate over it. Two smaller ones have a glass on top of it, so can be used on a table or etc. Can’t wait to share it, when finished!

Also how cool are these face and hand shaped decor things? I was lucky enough to get these from work and they are so usable at home.

Also H&M home has some good kitchenwear. Mugs and plates only for 1.99 euros. The colors are black, grey and white. What a bargain right?

Asos x Mtv

 

My new favorite jacket from Asos. Actually a men’s jacket but hey, a nice oversized denim wear is an absolute MUST. Also I have a thing for buying jackets and coats. They make every boring outfit really really cool.

Also, as soon as fall arrived, I feel I have no energy at all. Im eating healthy and exercising regularly, but I can’t even get up in the morning, and I always go to bed early to get enough sleep. Started taking fish oil capsules and I think I have to start taking Maca again.It should give more energy as well. Vitamin suggestions are welcomed of course 🙂

 

Stay warm and eat your vitamins,

First days of fall….

So fall has officially arrived! How weird is that? It was just summer a few seconds ago? But fortunately  with a really warm and sunny weather. Hopefully it stays like that until christmas 😛 Aaand, we are expecting to get our kitchen and bathroom done at the end of November or before Christmas. Can’t wait to have our first holidays in our own house. Also we have basically all we need to move in. Just have to get couple of closets(for my massive amount of clothes) and a dining room set. But other than that, we have what we need right now. Bought actually a full set of living room furniture + hall furniture in August. So downstairs “equipment” is all set! And we still have couple of months to get tiles put on our hallway + downstairs laminate. So excited!

Happy Fall time!
