Home Decor Interview:
Benita Larsson from "Chez Larsson"
Benita Larsson is just like you and I; she loves to do home projects and loves to share them with the world.
And share them she does. Benita's home decor exploits are shown for all the world to see on her Chez Larsson blog. Benita lives in Sweden, and her blog has an international flair that makes her so charming to communicate with.
For those of who would like to peek inside Benita's home and see how she and her family live up in the outskirts of Stockholm, please enjoy this interview.
Benita was kind enough to sit down with us during her trip to Hong Kong, and you can follow along with her as she posts pictures of her trip on her Chez Larsson blog.
Hi Benita, thank you for
joining us today, all the way from Sweden. Please take a moment to introduce
yourself and tell our readers about your blog.
To me the light green I
like is not so much a color actually, it's a neutral. It works with most other
colors I like and it's the colors of the greenery outside. When it's winter and
not much green to be seen outside over here I love that I have some indoors. I
recently changed our living room wall color from green to aqua but there's still
a fair amount of green left and I'm sure I will add more as I go along.
I don't repaint that
often actually. The living room wall, which was green and which I just
repainted, I had intended to repaint every six months or so. It stayed for years
simply because I love the color. A paint job on a single wall is such an easy
job though, so I could easily see myself changing it more often.
Our favourite pieces
have got to be the bases for our dining area table. We found them under a tarp
in a dumpster outside a famous Stockholm restaurant. They are cast aluminum and
we love, love, love them!
I'm learning to say
No... I'm really good at it at work where I'll immediately say no if I know it's
going to be too much. At home though I'm trying to cut down on projects by
saying no to myself. It's not likely that I in the near future will take on
another boat renovation even though it was fun, I'm not starting plants from
seeds anymore, I wear clothes I don't have to iron so much etc.
Bonus loves the
outdoors more than the house. As soon as I'm in the garden though he whines
until I go to pet him. Usually it means I need to get off the top of my ladder
or he'll lie at the base of it and meow until I've surrendered.
Stockholm is extremely
beautiful, almost completely surrounded by water. It's a very clean city
compared to others in the world and you would love to visit here!
Thanks Giorgina for having me!
I've always loved most aspects of homemaking, except for cooking (I leave that to Martin) and I'm happiest when I get to tinker about at home on my various projects, large and small. As I started uploading photos of my home on Flickr in December I realised to my amazement that others were actually interested in my projects and people were suggesting I start blogging which I finally did in May after much deliberation. It's been so much fun sharing with all of you!
Let's send a
big Thank-You to Benita and wish her a safe and happy trip home from Hong Kong.
Benita's blog is warm and inviting, so please drop
when you get a chance.
