This beautiful post is from "Country French antiques

French grays and blues, wintery whites, the
colors dreams are made of.

Grab your cashmere throw and voyage with me
to Scania, Sweden, the southern most province
on the Baltic Sea.

We'll visit the renovated home of
Barbo Grandelius (Antiquarian and Decoratrice)
and her husband Göran Peterson.

Furnished with Gustavian and French antiques.

Their love affair with antiques began when
Göran purchased a Rococo canape several
years ago at auction.

That led to moving from the heart of Sweden
to an area rich with antiquities. Now they
are living in their heart :)

Bitten by Vermoulu, the woodworm they were..
and his venom is contagious!
Who could possibly stop with just one piece?
Just ask my friend, Theresa Smith from

Then of course, you need a beautiful backdrop
that lets the pieces breathe. What is more
wonderful than plaster patinaed walls?

The transparency of antique glass just adds
to the ambiance.

The signature of practicality is always present in
European Country interiors.

Along with touches of formality in unexpected
Architectural fragments add so much
character to a space, don't you think?Old plank floors to die for! If you want to seemore fabulous floors, check out Ness's beforeand after shots of her home on her blog

A little black always classes things up a bit.

I love this linen shade with the botanicals.
