A few months my grandpa passed away a person who always meant the world to me and still to this day and forever will be an important person in my life.
Last weekend when visiting Gothenburg I also took a trip to my hometown and visited my dad and my grandma. I got the poster in the photo. It’s a commercial poster for the Swedish Armerica Line (SAL) who sailed between Gothenburg and New York. This way my old grandpa worked his way into the US meet a German women and married here and got two children. My grandpa and his little brother. The Swedish America Line is also how grandpa with his family traveled back to Sweden when he was about 10 years old. My old grandpa worked at this ships as well or many years so I’m happy to have this poster at home but only because it’s beautiful and a great memory but also because it’s a part of my family’s hostory.
Me and G have a rather Scandinavian and white apparent when it comes to interior. So we have been out looking for something with color that we can have for example on the wall.
A few days ago I found it a print with a colibrie on the interior design store here close by where we live. So now have it came up in our new self. Think it look quite good if I can say it myself.
Last weekend I stayed at Grand Hotel in Lund, this classic hotel in a classic Swedish town.
I’m not one of the most frequent hotel guest but this was the most expensive and luxuries hotel I stayed at. I think is about 210$/night but it wasn’t the cheapest room at the hotel. It feel luxuries to stay here even if it was a gap small gap between the beds that made it a bit pointless with a double bed. Any way I think the room was real nice but by me that are working within the construction industry I think it would have been even nicer if the had payed attention to the details in the carpenters work.
The breakfast was without a doubt the best hotel breakfast I’ve ever ate. Could almost recommend it just because of the breakfast.
The location is also great in the centre if the town. Near to most kind if communications.
Would I recommend it? Yes!
Rating? 4 out of 5 starts from me.
Ever since I moved to Norway haven’t we had a real stereo or speaker here. But finally have we now bought one. We bought an according to me beautiful black wireless Bose speaker for iOS.
Just installed it and tested it and it’s obvious that it’s a real speaker. Until now have I often listed to music on my iPad mini but the difference with the Bose speaker is indescribable.
Then I think this is a beautiful gadget. Now we just need to find somewhere to located it in the apartment. Don’t you think it looks good?
We are continuing to looking for a lamp to our living room but it’s not easy to find something we like. Yesterday we bought a lamp as I might have mentioned but today we returned it. It didn’t fit our home and was broken upon arrival.
But G did some research yesterday evening and after have returned the lamp we bought yesterday we drove and bought a new lamp.
Also discovered the district Skøyen a bit more. Looked nice from what I could see but it’s definitely something I would like to explore more.
However the new lamp is now home and looks like this!
Okey yesterday we bought a lamp but when we came home did we realize that it didn’t suit the apartment. So today have we returned it.
Last weekend we visited a lot of stores in Sweden but didn’t find anything. Now have G got some tips on new stores so hope we can find something there but we will see.
Will keep you posted.
Been out looking for a new standing lamp across Oslo today to our home but haven’t found anything. So now I’m scouting the web for staining lamps. Any tips on inspiration or advice?
So far we have mostly looked for lamps with a Scandinavian design. Yeah the chase after a new lamp continues.
Now the evening continues with other plans.
Guess if I am excited for tonights Apple event. This is the big one, the one where we know we will see something new. The question is what? We with most certainly knows we will see two new iPhones one in regular size and one in a larger size.
The I really hope to see something new, which then most likely would be an iWatch but that we don’t know thats pure speculation. Probably will they realse iOS8 and OSX Yosemite is my best guess at least the first one but the second one I think will be at least close behind.
In the spirit of the upcoming evnet I found an absolutly genius movie from IKEA that I just had to post and the timing with the Apple event is perfect which I not think is a co-inciedent.
Looking forward until tonight and really hope I will be able to catch it and that the job not will come inbetween. But if it does its always work first and I will catch up on the video later.
Since me and my girlfriend moved to our second apartment here in Oslo we’ve been looking for a new lamp. We bought a temporary at Ikea (Of course we are Swedish so where else…). But a few days ago go we found a nice one in a near by store but they where all out. So yesterday I was back in the store and bought the first one of those that just arrived and now it’s finally in its place at home.
Note also that the picture could look a bit like a face that smiles with the lamp as nose and mouth and the dots on the wall as eyes.
