And so, the move continues. Again, this is writen in retrospect so I can look back on these photos without any hint of stress around the work left to do.

We had already sorted the vast majority of the boxes and furniture. The kitchen was taking shape and we had a mutual understand of where everything was going to live elsewhere. So our job was to make this place look like a home.

We began by working on the living area. Immediately we found a home for our Dux chairs, bought at auction from Lauritz in Helsingborg, just by the window with a beautiful hammered metal side table. A perfect little morning coffee area (which is basically where we spend every morning) as the sun rises and beams into the room.

Our TV sat nicely on a boxed IKEA shelf with space for the all important PS4 underneath. You’ll often find us destroying others on Rocket League. A little rice lamp in the space still available and that’s another wall done! We also had a lot of fun converting an old black wooden IKEA table into our “marble” table with some marble plastic wrap. I wish I had the photos to show you how but here was the end result:

Next was a big job. Putting together our sofa bed, which we got from Furniture Box. The delivery man was super helpful as getting it up to the sixth story would have been quite a challenge without him. Construction…A little tricky with a few hiccups and scratches but we got there in the end. And it fit into the space perfectly. Job done.

We still had a hell of a lot left to do including the base of the stairs, wall space downstairs (see below) and the whole of the upstairs bedroom, but rather than showing the process I’ll just give you the finished product in another blog. That will explain the story of how our little home ended up on the front cover of the SkÃ¥nskan newspaper. Check back for more.
