| to sleep like a baby |

This post is a small but very needed rant of a sleep deprived new (5 months) mother...

Some weeks back (I don't know when, time is a blur) I returned to blogging after having had my baby boy. I told you he was sleeping 7 straight hours a night and that allowed me proper rest and some surplus of energy to work on my blog. Well....Jinxed! Just a few days after that he went into a sleep regression and started waking up every 45 minutes...

And so my husband and I are back to feeling like zombies...dragging ourselves through the days... happy with the little one, obviously (he is actually a little angel in all other aspects), but so damned exhausted! We have some better nights, and some really horrific ones. Like when there's so much tossing and turning that we stay awake anxiously just waiting for that moment when he loses his pacifier and starts screaming.

So seriously, who was the genius that thought that "to sleep like a baby"should be synonym of sleeping well?!?! The expression should be "to sleep without a baby"!

Kitchen Crush | White on White

This kitchen is in a house in Milan but it could be Scandinavian. The family knocked down some walls to get a kitchen "allrum" (family room), a concept which is very popular up here in Scandinavia. Also very Scandinavian is the use of white, lots and lots of white, that grant a relaxed and bright atmosphere to the whole space. And notice the great mix of clean modern lines, furniture that looks a bit more traditional and an industrial touch with the Tolix chairs.

Yup, I definitely have a kitchen crush on this one!

Mood On The Wall | Wire Frameworks

I've been seeing on Pinterest many examples of these 'upcycled' wire frameworks that serve to create beautiful moodboards or/and to hang all sorts of stuff one may need in a work space, kitchen, bedroom...wherever. I chose a few of my favourites to share with you today and give you an idea of what can be achieved with a bit of creativity.

They are cheap and easy to make...if you can get the wire frame to start with. It's only a matter of cleaning it, painting it, hanging it on a wall and let your imagination dictate the rest. But for those of you who may not be able to get your hands on one of these things for free, or if you just aren't a DIY kind of person, you may be happy to know that you can get the BARSÖ trellis on IKEA that can be used for the same purpose (and with no fuss) and look just as nice as you can see by the photo below styled by Pella Hedeby for IKEA livethemma.
