It is someones 40th birthday and we are so happy to be part of the celebration!
Growing up, ‘BILLY’ was a household name as almost everyone had an IKEA’s BILLY somewhere in their house. The name, for once being not a typical unpronounceable Swedish one, allowed us all to refer to our shelving unit as a family member.
Already forty years ago, IKEA launched this set of flat packed shelves. Although officially named ‘Billy the Bookcase’, these shelves have been used for much more then just books.
Although time flies by so fast that we are practically thinking about our Christmas decorations again, we kicked off this year with a room for a young adult. We absolutely love doing adult spaces and have been working on quite a few lately. Due to the fact that we once started with kids rooms sometimes gives the impression that that’s all we do yet we love mixing it up now.
I finally got the time to show you our new home! The last boxes are unpacked! We have officially settled in our new house.
A rental home that feels less of a temporary place due to the fact that we were able to have a say in a lot of the finishes. So after years of ugly rental tiles we could not be more happy with our marble floor up stairs, upstairs our white Kahrs Ash Blizzard wooden floor, grey custom made storage cupboards and a rain shower to name a few.
