LAZY KITCHEN MAKEOVER

THE BEFORE KITCHEN IS SAYING GOOD BYE




The time has come for the old kitchen that the former owner of this house built in our over a century old house. You really can not see that this house was probably built  year 1907/09 when looking at this kitchen. When we moved in, soon three years ago,the kitchen was not what made us decide for the house if you know what I mean.

We actually  fell head over heals in love with the old Stable (the building justapose from the "kitchen house")  that we since have converted in to our home. The house that this kitchen is in we have rented out and now finally this plastic carpet can go to see it´s maker (!!)
Really can not think of a material I detest more to reside in a home of mine.




So we tore everyting out. Decided on the type of tile and this way of placing them with a 50 % cross over. We are not buying any cabinets with paper thin quality to go here. This is going to be a country kitchen with a updated version of a turn of the century style. We are building it from scratch. For your information that does not have to cost more....
Just needs more time for planning than getting one online and a carpenter that knows his profession.






 


This is what the kitchen partly looked like when it moved from indoors to outside.
Thrown out I believe is the right wording.








So this is our country kitchen we were so slow and lazy putting in. We kept what was good which was the tap and the dishwasher.
Then we made the new country kitchen from scratch.  There are no wall hung cupboards instead a open shelf and we choose to put in the green metal cupboard to have all kitchen storage apart from what can fit in the doors on the bottom that got the biggest hinges in history both as decoration and a choice to land as far away from modern type sleek kitchens as possible.




Love easy access of  hanging tools and all you need on a everyday basis ( like a calebas...)



We rent out this house year round and all comforts are off course needed.



The chess theme took over the the worktop made out of mosaics. We are talking personal. No one else will have this type of madness in their kitchen. LOVE IT!




We actually started the whole update of the house by tearing down the wall between the livingroom and the kitchen. What I have loved in this house we now call Villa Hoby Mosse is the open fireplace. It is truly the center of the house and can bee seen from both sides and is the most efficient fireplace when it comes to heating. If you are interested in renting Villa Hoby Mosse you can do so at :

Bordercollie joy


When I say lazy kitchen make over I mean that we moved in to this dream house over two years ago and we have not done anyting with a kitchen that we for the first year more or less lived in. We renovated and worked and lived and did not want to rush it. Wanted time to enjoy with the dogs on walks in the surrounding nature and go on vacations ( below pic ). Renovating in general and interiors should be fun and creative. 

Nothing else.

INTERIOR TREND STEFAN


Stefan Nilsson is TRENDSTEFAN



There are other trendforcasters or guru´s in this particular area in Sweden, but Stefan is seen on TV on a large scale and has worked his way to a prime position it seem he is the spokes person for interior trends when it comes to Sweden. 

Norway, Denmark and Finland have their own trend gurus and to me internationally Li Edelkoort has become the one that I like to listen to.  

For the first time live I heared and saw Trendstefan when I last visited Stockholm during the Formex Fair. We were invited to hear his predictions at Berns Hotel which was part of the well organized tour put togehter by professional Trendgruppen  which is a company that is part of Stefan Nilssson´s past and extremely productive professional life. 

Here is how Trendstefan introduces himself in Swedish on his website where you also find his blog :

Stefan Nilsson är Sveriges mest mediala trendexpert och återkommer regelbundet i TV, radio och tidningar. Konstant på resande fot spanar han efter nya företeelser och fenomen inom inredning, design, mode, mat och annat som vi drömmer om.

Fem år i rad har Stefan utsetts till en av Sveriges mäktigaste i Designsverige i tidningen RUM.



This lecture Stefan talked about the trends of 2015 that he calls :

1. Vacation with Picasso

2. Marint Naivt,

3 Flowers on Pedestals

4 New Simplicity 

5 Schimmer Schammer


Stefan has a very easy going and charming presentation and makes it all very entertaining and amusing. He has comical timing and makes his audience laugh at our ways as humans. 

He looks at the details as well as the big picture. One of the points he made was to make us aware of that there are companies today taking new ways like Inglorious Fruits&Vegetables that has grown succsessful for taking care of and selling the ugly carrots as well. Since only perfect carrots are displayed the ugly ones were thrown out. BUT -- this magical company decided to take care of the ugly ones. Don´t you just love hearing stories of success like this ? I do!



 Stefan presents occurrences as well as detailed products that tells the same story as the trends he presents as a trend guru off course should. To prove the theory that he has presented. 

And that to me is so interesting. That off course it only is a theory. It is Stefan´s way of seeing the trend truth. 

So it´s really just a view. 

Stefans view of what he thinks the trend is like. Li Edelkoort presents her view and and in Denmark Pej gruppen presents a Scaninavian view. 


Many trend companies around the globe use words like council or institute - in Sweden Moderådet which means the fashion council, this to make it sound more powerful and like it almost is part of the govermental type of department and therefore sound more authoritarian. 

Do you think trends are made by councils, institute or companies ? 

In my opinion trends are always made by us. The people. All of us that are interested in expressing ourselves and naturally also by designers and artists that express their visions. Then trends are categorized and presented by forecasters or gurus. 

Every month Stefan shares his thoughts on trends in a newletter that you can get. Just drop a line to detnyasvarta@trendstefan.se


Stefan delger sig av sina tankar om trender varje månad i nyhetsbrevet ”Det nya svarta”. Om du vill prenumerera på nyhetsbrevet, skicka en rad till detnyasvarta@trendstefan.se

MOST IMPORTANT IN MY LIFE







I was going to write about the Swedish media phenomena Trend Stefan, but when I got back from my day that took me among other places to a showroom for furniture in Eslöv, Skåne  and this week in general that started with a bang on monday and tuesday I drove to Gothenburg at 06.00 and so on - I just felt like .... I will do that next week. 

It´s important, interesting and fun but like with everything else in my life at this  point there is so much more than interiors and work that is important. 

When I met my love and moved from Stockholm down to the south of Sweden so much changed in my life.
 
 Off course it also is a matter of age and perspective.
I find that it´s not important to be the first. Especially to hurry and be the first. 
It´s just not interesting. Who cares who´s first ?

That does not mean I want my blog to say what everyone else is saying. To regurgitate the same news like everyone else. And we were many that has listened to the Trend report from Stefan in Stockholm. The important part is that I will give my thoughts and my personal view on the lecture. 

In general at this point in life I want to share what is important and inspiring to me both here on #jimmyschonninghem on instagram and on Jimmy Schönning HEM on Facebook. 

I love my work with interiors and all the esthetics of life and love and want to share that, 
but life comes first. 

Today that was seeing our three dogs running through the water and our walk on the beach. 
Most of the time the best thing in life is to make time for the important things. 

Like a walk on the beach with the dogs in the sunshine. 

That is the most important 
in my life.

Grounded Craft Work










SKATE CHAIR by Christian Riis is the most tasteful and well made type of furniture I have come across that takes the shape and the sentiment from a skateboard and makes it in to a stylish piece of easy chair.




Well made by hand in solid materials. European Oak, wenge,walnut and European Ash are types of wood that Danish Christian Riis prefer in his design. Great hallway mirror with room for all that just need storing when you get in at home.


Love this mirror box called Sugarmamma  with a clever stand that closes as a box when needed and opens up and stands well as a mirror when opened.

HANG ON



Not yet out of Beckmans Design school Erik Nyström has created a clever and arty hanger, hook, storage solution that presents itself like a piece of art called HANG ON.
Really like this and is trying to show it to all interested because this I would like to see being produced and sold. I would buy it for sure!

Have a wonderful weekend!
