Swedish Wallpaper

The design for our new house, Patina Farm, is a melding of antique and modern. Most of the architectural details will feel contemporary: no trim, sheets of glass, white plaster walls, while the materials will be antique: antique French roof tiles, aged limestone flooring, French white oak floors. The modern details will be a calm backdrop for the antique elements, which will add romance and warmth. Although almost all of the walls will be white plaster, I'm toying with the idea of hanging some Swedish wallpaper in a small arched area in the entry.

This beautiful dining room by David Easton (originally featured in Veranda Magazine) was my inspiration.

I first became an admirer of muted Swedish wallpaper when I started shopping at Lief on Almont many years ago.

During a recent visit to Eleish Van Breems on Dering Hall, my heart started doing a little dance when I saw the work of Stockholm artist Eva Badenhorst.

Eva creates these stunning wall decorations on antique Swedish sailcloth.

This design is the one I'm obsessing over. The muted colors will work perfectly in our new house.
