Bye-bye Blogger ...And the SHOP is open

We have moved!

It has come time to say bye to Blogger. Blogger has been very good to Kootut murut (I've been blogging here for over two years! Almost 400 posts that is!!) There's definitely certain things I'm going to miss. But it's time to move on, and Kootut murut has a brand new site here. I hope you will follow us there.

Oh, I almost forgot. The SHOP is open too! You can find it at the new site as well.

Dreamy winter home in Sweden

Dreamy winter home

I was flipping through my old decor magazines as I stumbled into this dreamy Swedish home in Divaani. I had bookmarked it before and could immediately remember why. It's so stunning. It was photographed by Petra Bindel, who I guess is the interior photographer on everyone's lips at the moment. At least I seem to be bumping into her photos constantly, and no wonder. They are stunning. From her portfolio I could see the same home in Elle Interiör.

Dreamy winter home

I love how this home is both soft and romantic - and rough at the same time. Nothing looks too polished. There's little quirky details all over. Like is that a Wunderbaum I see hanging there?

Dreamy winter home

I think I might die out of sheer happiness if we had a kakluuni oven like that.

This home is just too cool for words. I mean look at the pink guitar with that scary doll. And could I have that shoe collection, por favor??

There's a LOT more stunning interiors in Petra Bindel's website, so pop on over for a healthy morning dose of beauty.

Christmas inspiration from the Husband

Panu wanted to contribute to the holiday decor this year. So he sent me this inspirational christmas light video, asking if we could have something similar.

The nicest neighbors

"New" front door

We have the nicest neighbors. They have been so helpful with our renovating project. We have got spare parts like light switches and heard stories about how things used to be. One of the neighbors has lived here since 1956 and is the oldest original resident on the street. He was also building our house!

And last weekend, we got a front door! I have been in love with that door for two years. We have a "modern" door, looks like from the 80's. I've been saying to Panu countless times we need to find an original front door just like that. I've been searching the internet for the right one. We've also talked about having it made. But now the search is over, because our neighbors decided to change the door and donate the old to us! Of course we offered to buy, but they wouldn't have any of that. I'm kind of surprised how nice and helpful people still are. And very grateful.

Oh, and I might be a bit quiet for a while. I'm preparing for Kootut murut to move, hopefully very soon. But more about that later.
