Here is a beautiful Swedish-American summer
house located in East Hampton, Long Island.
The goal was to mix Swedish charm in big size American scale
- something I think they have definitely achieved very well.
Beautiful symmetric harmony dominates the house in true
Hamptons' Style. Love the exposed beams and open ceilings!
Apparently the hallway is large enough for the youngest kids to bicycle in..
...and apparently they do!.. :) (I love that!)
The living room is a mix match of styles - new & old, lux & simple, rustic & sleek.
The sofas are classic Italian new purchases, however the stunning chairs are old
and have been re-upholstered to match. The painting was painted by a student,
and the lamp (Tolomeo) was designed by Michele De Lucchi.
Super cute guest toilet with little bird clad garden taps by the sink. What a wonderful
idea! I also love the mix match linen towels, that rustic chunk of wood bench top,
and fantastic guilt mirror. All in all a perfect balance of elements.
I bet Philippe Starck didn't intend his Ghost chair to team up with an antique
Swedish secretary, but now that they have I think they are a perfect match.
Beach themed master bedroom with very cute double layered sunburst mirror.
I love the colour of the walls - lavender yet grey. Lovely.
Also am a big fan of a freestanding bath like this - especially if it is located by
a window! The tub is by Philippe Starck.
This to me is perhaps the most Swedish room in the house.. Old Swedish chairs
in typical 'Allmoge' style (description in short: a category of Swedish antiques from
the less affluent segments of society - often colourful, rustic and with ornate decoration).
The beautiful 'Ostindia' plates are by Swedish 'Rörstrand' are a classic.
