New painted kitchen walls

Want some changes at home? Painting is a fast and fun way to give your walls or furniture a new look.

Our kitchen is white, and we used to have white walls. We were looking for a calm and colorful paint for the walls. After trying a blue-grey color, we were not quite happy, and landed on this beautiful peach color.

The color is supermatte, named “Blushing Peach”, from Jotun Lady. We painted 2 coats, and used a 3 liter can. Painted the floor list as well, but kept the top list  in white, as the ceiling is also white.

On the kitchen-side we kept it simple with clean walls.  We love to decorate with a lot of green plants.


All our chairs are old, from thriftshopping and secondhand.

The dark teak works well with the peach wallcolor.

On the opposite wall we have posters and family photos, and a DIY cabinet we made ourselves, painted in blue.

Lamp over kitchen table is from a dumpster outside a building area, another “upcycled” interior piece. From trash to treasure- we love it!

This cabinet is made from 2 old windows. Feet are from an old kitchen table. MDF board used in the back,

wooden boards on the sides and as shelves inside.  The blue paint is a mix form different blues we had in the house.

We love plants and cactuses!

So many different shapes and personalities! Perfect way to add some color to your home

We also bought a light green color,also from Jotun Lady,  that works well with the peach wallcolor.

The plan is to paint some of the diningchairs.

Ready for spring!

Garn, strikkavenner og strikkeoppskrifter. 

Hurra ! Endelig er nettsiden oppe og går, og som du kan se her så elsker vi elsker alt som har å gjøre med garn og ull!

Garn – ja takk! Deilige farger og garn som er lett å strikke med. Perfekt for mange prosjekter, fra strikket tilbehør til jakker og gensere av alle slag. Garnet er 100% ull – deilig mykt, fluffy og lettstrikka.

Hold strikkepinner klare – Vi jobber stadig med nye prosjekter og strikkeoppskrifter. Bare stikk innom oss og se hva vi holder på med, stadig noe nytt.

Garnpakker– Ved kjøp av garn til strikkeoppskrift får du oppskrift med på kjøpet gratis. Skriv en kommentar i bestillingsfeltet på hvilken oppskrift du ønsker. Dette gjelder ved kjøp av garnmengde oppgitt i den aktuelle oppskriften, sammensetning og farger velger du selv.

Strikkeoppskrifter – HipKnitShop elsker “Gjør det selv” / DIY ! Vi har strikkemønster både på klær og strikkevennene.  Alle mønster på plagg du finner her, har vi strikket i Hip Wool.

Alle våre strikkavenner er laget i fin/baby alpakka garn, og strikkes med pinnestr 2,5 eller 3.

Strikkavenner – Håndstrikkede unike dukker, venner og puter. Produsert etter fair trade-prinsipper, av svært dyktige strikkere. De elsker å kose og henge sammen med både små og store. Trives like godt på banerommet som i sofakroken i stua.

I våre inspirasjonsinnlegg vil vi dele DIY tips, med fokus på interiør, gjenbruk, garn – og strikkeprosjekter og barnerom. Ideer og inspirasjon for barnerom, både jente – og gutterom, samt generelle interiørtips til hjemmet.
