You may recall that I did a post in January about Gustavian Swedish colors, furnishings. From the beginning I had intended to do a follow-up post because there is so much to share.
This post is going to focus more on the colorful side of Gustavian Swedish colors and design.
Much of the Gustavian Swedish colors are very muted with lots of grays and creams.; but not always. The Gustavian Swedes of the 18th century loved color too!
This colorful post is my tribute to the burgeoning spring that has suddenly popped out here in New York! Thank God!
You may recall he was the Swedish John Singer Sargent of his day.

Can I tell you how much I adore this combination of the Gustavian sideboard with the colors in the art and wall?

These are colors that were used in European homes in 1807. I’m not sure if they are specifically Gustavian, but these colors were used frequently, in addition to the more muted grays and whites.
I adore these colors, the beautiful wallpaper and the aged, scrubbed painted surfaces.

A great mix of old and new; I love how she’s incorporated the Gustavian Swedish bench into the modern-day furnishings. Fabulous jute rug layered under an Oriental rug.

Back to the traditional Swedish interiors. Love these Swedish tiled stoves!
I adore Gustavian Swedish interiors and furnishings, the scrubbed floors, walls and peeling paint. I like paint that’s not peeling too, but the former feels like love.
I’m working on a couple of treats for y’all!
