I Want a Gustavian Home

I'm thinking I want a classic Swedish home. I love blue and white, especially the icy blue of Gustavian design.

Who wouldn't want to live in a home so light and airy?

I love the mix of newer antiques with the classic colors. I could live here; go on, twist my arm.

When I saw this picture of a coffee shop in Sweden I thought "That would be a beautiful kitchen."

These living rooms are sublime.

Wouldn't you love to see these spaces in your home?

I'm afraid if I had these bedrooms, I'd never leave them.

(Aren't these headboards beautiful? They are $749 each on Wisteria.)

Check out this site for more beautiful Gustavian design.

I love that bright, airy, open feeling with lots of light. I can't wait to repaint my living, dining and kitchen one day. These are beautiful.

I've been wanting to decorate my bedroom in blue and white, but so far it's still a hodgepodge of color. Those tall pictures are nice, and so are the headboards.

Love the Gustavian style.
I have a clock like that from my mom that we shipped over here from Sweden when we moved...from 1764 (green and red)love it. The furniture was so beautifully made in that era.
