I’ve been in love with beautiful things and decorating for as long as I can remember. I remember planning the set up of my bedroom when I was six. I remember saving up my allowance to buy yet another perfect item that I had found with my mom on our weekly trips to the local antique store in my home town in Sweden. I loved the hunt for that perfect piece and I loved finding a deal. I still do.

I daily come up with new design projects and scour the Internet for design ideas and bargains to make our house into a home. This weekly blog shares ideas and finds from across San Diego and the Internet. You can also follow/friend me on Twitter and Facebook for more frequent updates. If you’ve found that perfect must-have item or a store that inspires you, please share!

The name of this blog reflects my design style, which is heavily influenced by Swedish country and Swedish Gustavian design, named for King Gustav III who ruled Sweden in the 18th century. In short, Gustavian design features painted, neo-classical, time-worn furniture and décor in hues of white and light soft shades of blue, gray, green and yellow. I love combining classical and contemporary pieces to achieve a look that is serene, airy and light.

About Me

I moved to San Diego from Sweden in 2001 with my husband Brandon, leaving my Swedish family and job in web development behind. After years at a local San Diego web develop company, I’m currently fortunate enough to be doing interactive marketing, one of my other passions, at one of the health care systems in town. We’ve now live in north county and have two beautiful little boys.

In addition to interior design, I love fashion, design and art in general. I also enjoy running, yoga, Pilates, hiking, traveling, reading and spending time with my family and friends.
