I think this first picture gives you a pretty good idea of the layout of our living room (which is also our dining room and kitchen, natch). It's taken from the entrance and the door at the end is to our bedroom/office. It's not the biggest room to do all your living in and the sloping walls make it a little tricky but it's really all the space we need. In some ways I love living in a small place, since you can only have what you need. We also get lots of light in this apartment which is really important when you live in a Nordic country. It's just a bit funny to be living in an attic apartment again after living in one for years in Canada, as I've mentioned before (you can see pictures of my old attic apartment here). The funny thing about these pictures is that they were taken on different days - I guess you can see where Tiggy spends most of his time. Tiggy and I both have been sleeping on that sheepskin since we were littles, so it's nice to have it here. We needed this room to be multifunctional and with the tight space, we had to pick our furniture carefully. Since we have a lot of house guests, this couch pulls out to be a pretty comfy double bed and it's not as ugly as a lot of futons, so that was a plus.
What we did: In this little living room corner of the main room, we didn't do too much. We framed and hung up my print and Mark put in a wireless router, phone line and the lamp and organized all the cables neatly under the couch, if that counts.
Still to do: I'd like to make some pillows from the ombre tablecloths I made for our wedding, since they are just sitting in storage.
Where things are from: The couch is from the used site Den Blå Avis, as is the fridge (although I guess that should be in the kitchen post), the lamp is thrifted, the print is one of my silkscreens inspired by our trip to West Africa a few years ago, the sheepskin is from my parents, the 1960's Italian phone behind the couch is from Mark's grandparents, the handwoven tray is a gift from my mom from a trip to Hawaii and the olive tree in the window was a wedding present.
