Rhonda Eleish and Edie van Breems

From the white- and blue-hued images of the familiar Gustavian style to the gold accents and luxurious patterns found in the Swedish Baroque, Rococo, and Biedermeier periods, the secret to Swedish design is in having the confidence to mix old and new while maintaining a clean and simple aesthetic.

Emphasizes light, comfort and elegance.

Is found throughout the world, proving its wide appeal and the ease with which it blends with other design styles.

I was looking for decorative ideas and, yes, I realize the Swedes have never been known for their wild color sense, excepting the innovative home of Carl and Karin Larsson, but still, what I found in this book was nothing to write home to Mother about.

By and in large, the houses featured in this book are attempts to adapt widely diverse American architectural types to a Swedish sensibility. The result is bland with only a few exceptions: 1.) the attempted Wisconsin re-creation of Larsson's Swedish home avails itself of Larsson's lively color scheme, but misses the proportions that prove so charming in the original; 2.) the Genesee Depot "Ten Chimneys" home of Lunt & Fontaine which was largely decorated in fancy murals done by a Hollywood set painter and which, I must say, would've driven me crazy with its busyness; and, lastly, 3.) the guesthouse of a Montana homestead which proved to be a hybrid Adirondack cabin with lovely Swedish painted furniture. The remaining homes/townhomes/apartments are white. Very white. With touches of the palest gray or blue for accent. Honestly, with the long winters, I'd have expected something more stimulating.

Aside from the examples of painted furniture, I can't say there was anything here to emulate in trying to decorate a home of my own. I have other books on Scandianvian decorative taste that are much more informative.

The cover of the book leads one to think that this will be a volume of traditional or "antique" Swedish style, but this is not the case. I was personally looking for a book of traditional and old fashioned Swedish interior and exterior styles and this book is not that, thus I gave it three stars. The book is nicely written and there are plenty of photographs and there is a bit of traditional style but the book focuses largely on the modern takes on Swedish style and many of the photos are of places in the United States that have somewhat Swedish flavored styles and definately very modern styles.

If you appreciate Swedish design, it's difficult to find books on this unique style. This book, written by two connoisseurs of the style who own a Swedish furniture store in Woodbury, Connecticut, has examples of furnishings and rooms in this style. There are some lovely rooms in this book. The photos in this book show the diversity of style under the umbrella of Swedish interiors. If you like the photo on the cover, you will probably enjoy the contents inside.

The book is a bit too much alll over the place. I was looking more for Gustavian, which is on the cover of the book, but instead it takes a variety of turns of swedish interior style. Nice, but not what I was looking for.

In my opinion, this is the best book that I have found on the SWEDISH STYLE of home decorating.

This is a large hardback book, with wonderful photos of homes decorated in the "modern" Swedish style.

If you love the Swedish style decorating, then you will refer to this book quite often---as I have.
Beautiful book !!
