Dang. Tried to read about them at the site you link to, but their English version isn't in English :/

I'm in Sweden so if it's available online or a Swedish channel picks it up I'll absolutely watch - as much for his warm personality as for his design tips. Maybe an entire house that's been "Nated" would be too much to handle, but he does have some good ideas.

The word "fugly" comes to mind.

Hey polish chick - Sweden has its share of maroon leather sectionals too, sorry to say. Add to that ultra tacky gnomes of every size and shape that have been deemed "collectible", curtains that end about 5 inches off the floor, and a design sense that's hopelessly stuck in 1983. There are exceptions, thank goodness, but generally what you see is the cream of the crop that was good enough to make it onto the web or into a design mag. Sorry to burst your bubble!

Looking very forward to clicking over to the article, but for now I just have to second pridescrossing's observation on apostrophe use/misuse, both in this post and elsewhere. This is basic stuff - come ON.

Love the wrapping station - hate the poorly punctuated saying on blocks sitting on the windowsill. A dab of white paint would fix that baby right up!

Harlequins are pure evil...and for some reason it's considered cute when they're sitting on a swing in the window. Seeing this in somebody's house would make me reconsider a friendship.

christyyyjoy, same here - we reuse all plastic bags on our doggie walks (Nuff said? Hope so.) and never ever have to buy the bags made specifically for that purpose.

That is just wonderful. One of those extra, not at all necessary things that just makes people happy.

We just covered pillows for our patio furniture with some old sheets and they're so nice. The fabric's already broken in so they don't have that "pretty but too scratchy to use" thing going on.

I think that ironing board chair is the most creative upcycling I've ever seen! I'd seriously consider doing that, since our ironing board definitely never sees any action. Poor, lonely ironing board...

I've been inside the Alcott home and it's great - they encouraged all their kids to develop whatever interests they had so while Louisa May was writing stories her sister was drawing (well) on the walls and windowpanes. Seriously cool.

Wow! That's the most original way of displaying family pictures I've seen in a long time and I'm mad that I didn't come up with it myself! Definitely gonna try this.

That is the definition of beauty. It whispers instead of shouts.

What a sweet yard! It's really obvious that you've put a LOT of work into it and that you love doing so. Keep up the good work!
