Re-decorated apartment

January 20, 2010

Once again I have re-decorated our apartment. My thought was to make things a bit lighter and more cheerful in this Winter-darkness. So I got rid of our big dark patterned carpets and removed all the paintings and pictures from our big dining-room wall, then I have switched around two big maps (A Europe map and a World map) to bring the lightest one from our bedroom into our dining-room. And I have also made a new wall-papered wall at the end of our dining table where I have re-hung half the paintings I took down from the other wall…

In our tiny hallway where we have a blinded door into the living room I have hung up an old 60’ties lamp we had lying around, this suddenly made the hallway seem like it’s own little room and not just a walk-though-place.  It took me a little bit by surprise how cosy the hall way became Anders and I was so happy with the result -we almost felt like bringing chairs out there to read a book in the ‘new room’ :)…

I didn’t do all these things on one day, little by little through the last (many) weeks. This photo is from our hallway I will show more when the sun comes out and I can shoot some better pictures.
