Swedish Room Trouvais

A few more favorite views from the Swedish Room

Beyond the antiques…a large part of the magic of the space is the art tracing its

way across the top of the showroom’s gray walls.  The chalky finish and subtle tones

of Sydney Harbor paints here were used as a subtle backdrop for the antiques

as well as the gorgeous mural above. Patterned after the c. 1770’s Chinese

inspired Tree of Life wallpaper in the Prima Donna’s Dressing Room at the

Drottningholm Court Theater in Stockholm, the mural above was recreated

on site by renown Swedish painters Jonas Wickman and Stephan Söder.

Charming use of barbed wire…

Love the edgy interpretation of a classical chandelier…

Mimicking centuries old wall art…

Suzanna has a large folio of wallpaper-like painted

murals swatches for her clients to choose from, and then

flies the painters out from Sweden to create the murals on site

Flipping though the portfolio….

I caught my breath thinking of

of insetting this into a paneled

door or across a focal wall…
