Comments on: Gustavian Style — by Guest Mom Leslie http://www.designmom.com/2008/01/gustavian-style-%e2%80%94-by-guest-mom-leslie/ The Intersection of Design & Motherhood Sat, 25 Oct 2014 01:30:04 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.5.1 By: Anonymous http://www.designmom.com/2008/01/gustavian-style-%e2%80%94-by-guest-mom-leslie/comment-page-1/#comment-168644 Anonymous Thu, 28 May 2009 01:50:16 +0000 http://www.gabrielleblair.com//?p=1712#comment-168644 I’m from Norway, and even though our culture didn’t really encorporate a lot of the Gustavian style, it still remains a beautifully classic way of styling the home. Houses in Scandinavia have always been amazingly insulated so there has never been a need for carpets. I love that aspect of the no carpet look, it also means less dust! Beautiful pictures and great blog!

Airy but rich and warm too.
I love it when people talk about Gustavian style!

It is amazing how the somewhat ornate furniture can translate into such a serene & simple space.
