New year, new blog

We’ve bid our farewells to 2013, an unforgettable year for myself, and 2014 is already here. Along with starting a new year, I’ve started a new blog: Äntligen Emma (the name is a play on words after a very popular Swedish DIY tv show called “Äntligen hemma”). It will focus on the renovations and interior design of our new home, as well as general observations on those topics. Of course I’ll keep this blog running as well, because I sincerely hope my life won’t be all about renos from now on…! But please join me on my new blog as well (I’ll be sure to include a “google translate” button for you)!

We’ve been out looking for inspiration for our big bathroom (currently non-existent), that we’ll renovate in November, today. It went so-so. The store we were heading to, Kakeldax, was closed. On a Sunday. Boo. Seriously, isn’t Sunday the one day when people have time to go to these shops? So, that sucked. But we found some other shops, and ended up buying wallpaper for the bedroom instead:

But, back to the bathroom. Do you have any suggestions or advice to give us, things we should think about? It’s a big room, 16 square meters, and will also house our laundry room.

At the moment we’re thinking mosaic tiles on the floor, preferably colourful, and white subway tiles on the walls. A double sink is a must, as is a shower. Considering my crap joints we’ve decided on getting a bathtub with massage functions too.

Naturally we’re pinning away on Pinterest, but do you have other suggestions on how to collect, remember and manage ideas we come across?

Oh, by the way, six more days and it’s honeymoon time! Woohoo!!!
