What Houzz contributors are saying:
In this emphatically Swedish-style living and dining room, there is a sense of elegance, but somehow it’s accomplished in a very relaxed fashion. I love the abundant use of linens here — not only on the table but on the chairs and settees, at the windows and even in the antique hemp area rug.Decorating with antique and vintage linens brings something uniquely comfortable not only to the body but to the eye. Their colors, patterns, textures and “hand” create a beautiful environment, make us feel relaxed and help insulate us from the hard edges of our increasingly hectic world.More: Decorating With Antiques: The Magic of Ceramics
Typical Swedish style is quite homey and warm, making it easier to adapt to many homes than its more stark Danish cousin. The soft palette of chalky whites and pale grays here pays tribute to this style while still feeling modern and fresh.
