Sweet Swedish Homes and Textiles
Also what blog entry about Swedish homes would be complete without a mention of the giant force in the home industry IKEA? Hubby and I are going there this weekend to look at the Lidingö kitchen and I am so digging the Swedish Country look which is my stylistic first love i.e. "allmoge" as it's called in Sweden. See http://www.ikeafamilylivemagazine.com/us/en/article/31963 Here's a peak at Eva Lundgreen's work above.

IKEA does a great job of sourcing it's textiles (shout out to Kajsa Aronsson, friend, part-owner of HAPPY Stockholm, and textile designer extraordinaire). HAPPY Sthlm She developed this gem above "Eivor Leva" for example. Stop by her store in Gamla Stan, Stockholm if you're there and tell her Tina sent you. ;-) You'll be so inspired. Well I can't make it to Sweden this weekend but looking forward to checking out the new Swedish Country collection in Stoughton, and planning our new kitchen. It's a start.
