Despondency grew until a friend suggested that Erica take a look at Elfa’s instagram for some inspiration. She saw that Elfa was looking for people who felt they had hopeless bedrooms in need of a makeover.
I showed it to my husband and said that this was exactly what we needed. But he was skeptical and replied: "Alas, do not send in any competition entry, there is no chance that we will win. It's just a waste of time… ”.
Erica couldn’t get the idea out of her head, however, and decided to ignore his words. When she was alone at home, she recorded an application video, explaining their bedroom situation, and sent it in to Elfa.
– Both of us were surprised and delighted when we found out that we had been chosen!
The task of taking on their dysfunctional, drab bedroom was given to Elfa’s storage expert Christine Dalman and interior design and feng shui consultant Jannice Wistrand.
- They asked us about our requirements for clothes storage. My husband needed drawers for all his ties, cuff links, belts and other accessories. And I have a number of full-length dresses and jumpsuits that need to be hung up and not folded, Erica says.
