Cocktail Scandinave

I didn't know this shop existed until a few months ago. Its good to know there is an alternative to IKEA when it comes to affordable furniture. We ordered an outdoor table and chairs and a bed for Lily, which has drawers underneath. They are both really nice quality and much sturdier than your average IKEA furniture. We re-arranged the kids room to make a bit more space. Its still a tiny room but it now has a nice feel to it. Here are some photos of the new furniture and a few shots of the apartment looking lived in (very lived in!).

I love Cocktail Scandinave! It's much better quality than IKEA. We got our kitchen table there for only 69 euros, and I love it.

Cute apartment! And cute kids, as always. :)

I'm pleased to see how it all looks with your furniture in place - comfortable and much more homey than rue de Bonlieu. Maybe thats the kid's stuff all around but I think more likely the general atmosphere and the sunlight.
