veranda magazine featuring Swedish-inspired interiors

I received my very first Veranda magazine in the mail early in the week. And boy was I excited. I have read a few of these magazines in the past and enjoyed each one immensely. I was left with no other choice but to subscribe. I was instantly thrilled with the cover (above). How stylish. The blanc de chine (French for Chinese white) foo dogs and ginger jars, the obelisks and that green wall!

This home is in the Aspen mountains and is Swedish inspired. The interior is very white with Gustavian furniture throughout. I could even live with all that snow if I lived in such a beautiful home!

I adore this table setting, the highlight for me is the Delft and Chinese blue and white export vases and jars. The table is Swedish.

The antique chairs and settee in this image are Gustavian. I love the soft colours of Gustavian furniture. And the French iron bistro table works a treat.

This chinoiserie wallpaper is quite whimsical, but peaceful enough for a bedroom. It is made by de Gournay, specialists in hand painted wallpaper.

A very Hollywood bathroom!

And lastly, a room that is ready for Christmas (already?). The owner chose a "not-so-perfect" Fraser fir. It looks pretty perfect to me, anyone else?
