Remember I showed you the Myk daybed from Innovation Living in my office last month ? Well, I promised you I would show you the transformation of the daybed into a guest bed and since we are having friends over this week I thought this was the perfect opportunity to snap some pictures for you.
I have really been enjoying Myk as a daybed and sofa in my office. Just to be able to have a coffee or check my emails on my laptop is so much better then sitting at my desk all the time. I move the pillows around as a backrest or head pillow as well, which is great.
We are having a couple over this week, so I just lifted the top mattress off, placed it against the bottom one and made a double bed for two. I can easily make two single beds from it as well, just by leaving a space in the middle. I placed the triangle pillows at the head of the bed, which creates a headboard and makes it easy to read a book while in bed. I used the black stool that I normally use as a coffee table as a night stand and borrowed one from the other room for the other side. I think my guests will get a great night sleep here !

Swoon recently released a preview of their new collection styled by Lotta Agaton (like the previous times) and it’s all grey on grey which gives these pictures by Kristofer Johnsson a very soft touch.
One of the things I’m really happy about in our new place is that it has a balcony. It’s a small one, but it’s just enough for the both of us and just like the rest of the building, it has original details.
I put a lot of thought into how to make the most from this space and ultimately decided to go for a minimal look that would contrast with the cast iron railings and lots of plants to create a green oasis in the city. I’m so happy with the Menu wire lounge chairs from Westwing Now. They are very comfortable and don’t take up so much space. When we move things around, we can still fit a few stools for when we have guests.
Our balcony gets full sun from midday until the evening, so it was important to find a good sun protection as well. The Cinas balcony umbrella fits so well here and it’s great that we could just hang it on the balcony rather then having to fit a heavy foot, which would have taken up so much more space. The wire plant pot from Menu gives the look this extra edge and since the lounge chairs are made for both in- and outdoors, I’m thinking about using them inside in winter as well. I think they would look great in our living room.
We bought a fig plant (love the smell), planted some smaller plants in the planters and bought a climber plant that we hope will grow to fill up the gaps in the railing a little. Rather then covering these pretty details up we try to get some natural covering.
