Back to basics

ENG: Here is the basement livingroom of Nora and Helmer. Most of the souvenirs from their many travels ends up here. This week a new wooden floor has been laid in the room and they are quite happy with it! Spook House also sells the same type of sofas and chairs they had from before, so Nora has been there and bought herself a new sofa.
NOR: Her er kjellerstua til Nora og Helmer.
De fleste suvenirene fra reisene deres havner her. Denne uka har de fått lagt nytt parkettgulv og er ganske fornøyd med det! Spook House selger den samme sofaserien som de hadde fra før, så Nora har vært der og kjøpt en til.





ENG: The whole livingroom.
NOR: Hele kjellerstua.

Vilket häftigt rum! Fantastiskt att förvandla det gamla "vanlia" Lundby till ett sånt fint rum med en sån atmosfär! Jag gillar allt, särskilt böckerna! Har du printat dem? Du får gärna skicka länken på dem om du vill!
Så gillar jag givetvis konsten på väggarna!

Lena!

Takk Lena!
Bøkene er av TreeFeathers. Nydelige bøker, jeg har handlet masse fra henne, men du må regne med en fire ukers leveringstid.
Jeg har nå lagt inn lenke til butikken hennes under credits!
Der står også navnet på kunstnerne.

What rich colours! The blue paint is perfect - rich but not bright, allowing the bright colours to glow. I especially like the bowl on the mantelpiece above the fire, the turquoise vase - and the Toblerone on the little table by the fire! What a great way to spend a cold afternoon.

Pubdoll said...

Thank you, Rebecca! I prefer also in "real life" colours which are either very deep and rich, or very light. The room where the dollhouses are (our everyday dining room) is in an almost just as dark and rich blue.

The bowl on the mantelpiece is by re-ment and the turquoise vase is a bead! I love beads, they can be turned into so many things!
The chair by the fire is in fact Helmers favourit spot, there he sits in the evenings doing his sudoku, has a drink (never more than one) and a piece of chocolate!

What a wonderful room you've got here! I love the colours and it looks lived in and cosy but still so stylish. I'm glad I found your blog, it looks so interesting.

Pubdoll said...

Thank you hannajaleijona! I was so glad I found yours, too!
Looking forward to come back and study your blog more carefully!

Your floor is amazing! I can see why this is one of your favs.

Maybe one of these days you can post pic of the room with lights?

Pubdoll said...

Thank you Sans! It is taken with lights in the ones working, but not all of them have lighbulbs :(
I also would have liked too see at least the lights in the maroccan lamp better, it is so nice too see the light through the gold filigree, so perhaps I will try to take new pictures.

hihi - das sieht wirklich anders aus, als meine etage... sehr schick und gemütlich! ich mag diese ledersofas langsam immer mehr. aber frau lundby hat schon wieder andere pläne, sie möchte ja etwas geblümtes für das neue haus ;D sie ist eben nicht so stylisch!

lg, nicola

Pubdoll said...

Danke sehr Nicola:D Es ist mein Favoritraum in das Haus! Auch weil ich es so lange in diesen Stil gehabt haben. Ich habe fast mein ganzes Leben orientalische Miniaturen gesammelt.
Ab und zu mag ich auch nicht stylisch:) Es gefällt mir verschiedene Stile auszuprobieren.
