Cabin Update: The Lights Are On!


This is a paid partnership with Hudson valley Lighting Group. All words are my own and I only ever work with brands I love. 

The progress continues at the cabin! During the build we had spotlights fitted in the ceiling, which are all on dimmers. This set the basis for the lighting, and then I needed to add another layer - a more decorative one, but also directional to allow for reading, playing games etc. I.e. The fun part! Read on to see some pictures and find out more about the three new lamps in my life! 

Stanton floor lamp


This little gem in aged brass was the ideal choice for beside the sofa as it is height adjustable, and you can swivel the shade to direct the light. The black and white marble base makes for a great 'anchor' too (with Allie doing her gymnastics all over the shop, there's not much chance of it toppling over!).

Chloe wall sconce


You might recognise the lovely Chloe wall sconce by Mitzi, as I also have one in my sitting room at home. It's a favourite as I'm a big fan of the aged brass and light grey marble combination. For our bed alcove I opted for two - both connected to a dimmer switch so we can choose between a bright light for reading or a warm glow for ambience - this was important as it doubles up as somewhere cosy to relax in the open-plan living area! 

I love that this wall sconce works as decoration when not in use! 




Beside the lamp you'll notice a power source. The idea is to add a little rounded corner shelf at some point for phones and other tiny items like watches etc. All these details take time! 

Back home we added a third light from Hudson Valley Lighting Group: 

Nora Wall Sconce 

This fine Nora Wall Sconce by Mitzi brass wall sconce is part of the same family as Nora Pendant which I installed in Liv's room. It's available in two finishes: aged brass or polished nickel, but you know me, I love a golden touch! This lovely light added just the warm touch we were looking for in our window nook - day and night! It's probably the most coveted spot in our house, but I've got a feeling it will be even more inviting now! 

It's amazing what a difference lighting can make - whether to add decoration, create a warm and inviting feel, highlight a favourite painting or simply brighten up a corner. This weekend, why not do a light edit in your home and figure out what's missing. By adding a well-placed light you can completely transform an entire space and the way you use it!

Do you have a favourite? 

Right, I might just go and drink that cup of tea ('English breakfast'! - you can take a girl out of England, but you can't take England out of the girl!) and relax for a while before the family come home. 

Wishing you all a relaxing weekend. Vi ses på Måndag!

  1. I love how you think through your choices to add function and form to your spaces. All of your lighting is great, and it's nice to see your space come together. I suspect that your kids will take over your sleeping space during the daytime! On a rainy day, it would be a fun place to hang out.

  2. I love your thoughtful process to design, placement and need for dimmer on bed lights. And I love the simplicity of your lighting. I come from a generation of lamps with lampshades; it is hard to change design ideas which have been lifelong. But lampshades need dusting.

    My eyes are affected harshly by lights without shades, so I could not use the ones you chose for the bed area. They do look lovely, as do all of your choices for the cabin. Just brilliant!
    Enjoy your time there with family!

    I am a tea addict, so I would be right with you & a favorite cup.

  3. The cabin looks so beautiful! Love the different lights. But where are the sofa from and the chair in the first picture?

    1. Thank you! They are both from the danish brand Karup - the sofa pulls out into a bed and the chair is foldable. / Niki
