Swedish Books

Swedish Country Rhonda Eleish and Edie van Breems

Rhonda Eleish and Edie van Breems celebrate the folksy aspects of Swedish design. After dual forewords from Veranda Editor-in-Chief Lisa Newsom and interior designer David Easton, the authors present a smorgasbord of fifteen locations, from a Southern exercise in neoclassicism to a rusticated New England retreat to a light-washed California house. Each home expresses Swedish style in general and Swedish country style in particular: palettes of saturated hues or subtler shades, pickled wood floors, gingham checks or Gustavian touches of crystal and gilt, and painted furniture and clocks.
