Setting the table for dinner is something I enjoy. The smell of what´s cooking all over the kitchen.
Love having friends over for dinner.

Since my LOVE for the big Apple is of the eternal kind I will continue my quest of NYC and beyond and since this übercosmo of ever growing city always has something new to offer, I just long for my next visit when I would love to stay at the Whyte Hotel.
In hip&cool Williamsburg, Brooklyn at The Whyte Hotel, because I just love the industrial combined with the romantic that they have pulled of so beautifully.
Not to mention the floor to ceiling wonderful windows.
Something to long for!
Here is what has happened this summer at the Stable.
The planks that are the walls (were the walls...) of the shed has a flaky paint that I just adore. When examined properly and taken down so that we could check that the wood was in good shape we noticed that most of them were in mint condition, it was just the layer of paint that was so flaky and wonderful. So our shed will come in very good use. First up is the cover for the oven.
This is one of the doors that we removed from the shed. It will not go to waste.
Please tell me if you have a good idea of what we can do with it!
Here are the planks laid out after being taken down as gently as possible. All nails are removed . Now its time to hose them down and wash real well with a natural soft soap
(Sweden has Grumme tvättsåpa )
Now this is ART to me. - But ...it actually was the backside of the hatch in the shed.
Love finds like this!
Since the oven sits on our worktop it has been needing a cover to look good and to have a finnish.
So this is the first thing we did with the planks from the shed. Next up is doors for the cupboards in the bedroom.
A cool lemonade in the summer heat we had.
Here you really see the look of the flaky paint finish I love.
Welcome back to the blog after this summer vacation. Hope you had a good time. I did! So much have happened!! Going to tell you all!
Getting you back on track slowly on what has happened at the Stable and then we will move on off course. If you are a Instagramer ´ you can connect with me there as well on #jimmyschonninghem -- sorry for being so slow with going with the flow of Instagram.
String up small cut up pieces of wood/branches and it looks like this!
Both high ceiling and two creative window types whereof one circular, is a very good way to start. This room got a lot going for it already when we start working with it.
Spherical pendant lamps that repeat the roundness of the wonderful circular window.
White planets in orbit.
A comfy seat with class. An E for Ebba on the pillow. Text pillows from wonderful Mimou
Old worn wooden boxes turned upside down with a added zinc metal makes a good bed tray.
To let the organic shape of the tree show is what makes it so unique. Natural beauty.
A good idea is to laminate pictures to get them to look good hanging. String and wooden clothes peg does makes for a great look to hold the photos.
The yellow pillow is made from a child bed spread from the 30´s. Love re use and re cycling in all forms. Google Helena Rääf and find more antique textiles.
Pin up what you love.
The branch was a beach find. The side table has wheels so that it easily can be used as a table pulled over the bed. Love sitting and working in bed myself.
Lotta ( THE ROCK!) who works with our production got caught in this picture where I am trying to show the high ceiling in Ebba´s wonderful room.
Small glass houses with plants adds extra life.
Ebba is the owner of the room.
The old looking map along with the black&white photos transports you to another time.
A white linen covered board is a perfect backdrop for your own collection of all things beautiful.
This is the last episode of our 2014 HR, program nr 7. It has been the most amazing experience to be apart of this TV gang with a mission to help families in need.
With this I bid you a wonderful summer!
Jimmy Schönning HEM blog is back again in Aug. See you then!
Yes it is corrugated iron on the wall. Old and worn such. Have loved it for a long time. Here it got some hangers and a LED light strip behind it. Hung on a distance from the wall. I sprayed the metal blind for a graffiti feel.
No room for plants ? - I hung these on the wall in a zinc pot with handles.
A pendant lamp with magnetic possibilities. Attach what you like. Using chalk on it to draw or write is another plus. Fun lighting I must say. www.byrydens.se both lamps.
This pendant lamp is big for this space. On purpose I put this oversized ceiling lamp here. It gives good light for the desk and also creates an hotel like atmosphere.
Love untidy beds with attitude. So bored with perfect.
A desk with personlity. Reclaimed wood in bespoke form, www.lovsjologhouse.se. The tractor chair just fits in perfect. Carpet from www.carpetvista.se
An easychair with studs and pillow made from recycled jeans (mine!)
The silhouette of the city was enhanced by a mdf board cut in the same shape and LED lighting set in between the bespoke wallpaper and the city mdf silhouette. The wallpaper made from a picture made of the owner of the room. That´s personal wall covering.
This is from the last episode of HR this season 2014.
