A house in a house

Here it is - My big summer project. We live in a rather small apartment -just over 55m2- a livingroom, a bedroom and a kitchen. And so far we have shared our bedroom with Elinor. When it became time to find a new arrangement I didn't want to just move our bed into the livingroom or get a sofa bed. Instead I got to try out an idea I have had for a long time: A house within a house! This is now our bedroom and I'm so happy how it turned out. I had for a long time been annoyed with how our living room was working and even if it sounds crazy, this huge house have done wonders for our livingroom - I will show you more pictures soon! ▶ Everyone: I know, that last picture of the three of us is pretty good :) - I'm a little under the weather because of my crazy week and the sudden fall temperatures, but from next week my schedule is gonna be so much better (Oh and when I call it a 'crazy' week' its how most peoples schedule look all the time, but im not that good at being too busy)

Minna said...

ooh la la Mette! That´s clever and super stylish.

Mette said...

Hvor cool! Altid spændende med kreative løsninger i små boliger :)

Mirna said...

what a brillant idea ! Is the home for you or for Elinor ? It gives me the want to do something like that in the house we rent as we can't break a wall to change things .
I can't wait to see more pics ! Oh, and i love the hat light !

Johanna Tagada said...

Wonderful! And even more because you did it by yourself. I´m looking forward to see more pictures.

I wish you a nice thursday.

charlotte said...

mette, this is wonderful! bravo to you, what a cosy place to sleep.

it reminds me of the swedish atist carl larsson who had wonderful cupboard beds in his house :)

amarOrama said...

Uh, du har de lænestole, jeg gerne vil have.

KERRY said...

AMAZING Mette! So cosy! I wondered if you might be doing something along these lines, but this is better than imagined! I need one (come and make me one??) We have the same set up in our place. Bertie shares with us as not enough bedrooms. Have also thought about a sofa bed, which is probably what we’ll end up with as we don’t have room for a little house. Wish we did. Well done :)

Det här är så vansinnigt fint att jag inte vet var jag ska ta vägen! Som att bo i en koja. Blir extremt sugen på att bygga mig ett eget litet hus-i-hus. Heja er!

sofie said...

great!

Lien said...

I think it's fantastic that you are coming up with creative ways of living in a small space. People in Australia complaining how small their 3 bedroom houses are should read this blog!!

Tihana said...

SO cool! And where did you get that lamp I love it !

Linn Maria said...

Sikke en fantastisk idé! Bor selv på 40 m2, kunne være man skulle lave noget lignende. Kunne være fint også med et lille vindue i huset, man kan købe gamle ude hos genbyg. Mvh Sofie
