today’s post finds its inspiration from this rustic loaf of bread and sculptural white asparagus…rough-hewn wood floors may echo the uneven tone and texture of the bread while a clean-lined white sofa may take its cue from the long lean form of the asparagus…interiors with a complimentary palette and textural content…enjoy!

happy weekend!

christmas cheer

Good bread and good drink, a good fire in the hall,
Brawn, pudding, and souse, and good mustard withal.
Beef, mutton, and pork, and good pies of the best,
Pig, veal, goose, and capon, and turkey well drest,
Cheese, apples and nuts, and good carols to hear,
As then in the country is counted good cheer.

~ Thomas Tusser (1524-1580)

When he’s not dancing the part of Diesel in Bernstein’s West Side Story at the Gothenburg Opera, Magnus Lundgren is living out his other passion, buying and selling antique furniture…late Baroque, Rococo and Gustavian gems from 1750 – 1810 fill his lofty Malmo home…soft neutrals heighten the beauty and texture of aged wood and old painted surfaces…soothing, peaceful, beautiful…

“Just the idea that everything is completely done by hand, 100 percent natural materials makes them beautiful” ~ Magnus Lundgren

masculine and romantic, this log cabin is thoughtfully re-imagined for today’s lifestyle…located on a hillside in Norway, it’s a little Ralph Lauren meets a Norwegian lumberjack…I can only imagine how beautiful it must be on a snowy day with the fire blazing…

I discovered this wall of art while exploring interiors from skona hem…I just had to post this Danish country home for its raw artistic vibe…certain walls were stripped down to the mortar exposing a sepia colored collage, a beautiful counterpoint to the white walls and ceilings…the sketches are by Michael Kvium, beloved pieces that homeowners Henrik Busk and his wife Stine have collected over the years…the Poul Kjaeerholms daybed is a flea market bargain and fits perfectly beneath the art…I truly love this home for its artful soul…no pretense, just a true love of texture, art and design…wishing you a wonderful spring weekend!

Yesterday I posted about the idyllic home of Martina Arfwidson and David Weiss…the Elle Decor spread was from March 2005 and since then they have moved to a larger home more suited to their growing family…less formal and more rustic, this home is more New England farmhouse meets Swedish country…still light filled and fabulous, there are pieces you will recognize from their previous home ~ her mom’s metal chairs are now situated around the kitchen table and the four post bed in the master bedroom is now dressed with a bit more color, pattern and texture…there is a fantastic video on you tube featuring their current home, click here¬†for the link…it is part of Pottery Barn’s series “Where I Live” and highlights the home’s gorgeous views of the Hudson River and the barn on the property…definitely worth checking out! Enjoy!
