Global Inspiration: Swedish Gustavian

Swedish design in the late 1700’s and early 1800’s brought a touch of femininity and lightness to furnishings.  Several antique shops today feature brilliant Gustavian pieces. There are also manufactured retail options that embody this genre in their designs.

If you chose to create a Swedish inspired kitchen or breakfast room in your home, compliment the light hues with soft blue linens, checkered prints, and patina accents.
