Planning a Marimekko Entry

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8

It's been a little more quiet around here on the blog project wise.  We had some delays with the concrete pour in the basement, but I'm happy to let you know it was done yesterday.  We still have to wait for about a week before we can do some samples of the final finish that will go on top.  The concrete is a little more complex since it's going on top of radiant floor heating, but I'll get into all that in another post where I can hopefully show you the floors.  

Even though the projects are a little lacking this week, I have come up with all sorts of plans and redesigns for our house.  This includes our living room, entry, the boys room and even our kitchen!  You may have seen my kitchen rearranging on instagram.  Out of all of these plans, the entry seems to be the one I have actually gotten a small start on.  Above you can see what our entry looks like right now (minus the folding chair diy).  I have plans to make it a little more modern as you can see from my mood board.  The Marimekko Ruutukaava wallpaper is on order which means I'm going to be taking down all that board and batten.  I have a couple of the Muuto dots coat hooks already (you may have spotted them on my string shelf) and am planning to order a few more.  I've been toying with the idea of adding just one pink one to the mix to represent the lone lady in the house. :)  We are really missing a spot to drop our keys when we come in the door so I'm hoping I can fit the ikea shoe cabinet in the entry along with a great chair (there's a couple options above).  There's an Aalto pendant that I'm also drooling over.  We'll see if it will be in the budget or if a great sale comes along.  So that's the plan - a little Marimekko with black, white, grey, rose and wood accents.  I'm getting excited for this space already!  Happy weekend!

  10. do it!! i want to see the 'pink lady'!!
    :) the pendant makes me smile... my grandparents have had it forever... when they moved out of their house, they shipped several things to my mom... including that lamp. well, that lamp sat around for maybe ten years with nowhere to hang at my parents'... and golden tones weren't exactly stylish for a while. so the pendant when back to finland... and now it's hanging in muuri's condo ♥ i bet it'll be back one day ;)

  17. oh, you're so lucky to get the Marimekko wallpaper! We couldn't afford the paper so I hand drew the design on the fall :) if you'd like to see: http://styleingwithchildren.blogspot.ca/p/miss-cs-room.html
