How Swedish Painted Furniture Lends Itself to the Colder Weather

How Swedish Painted Furniture Lends Itself to the Colder Weather

The Gustavian Swedish folks of the 18th century loved their pale, muted grays, blues and creams, which conjure up images of winter. They often applied these pale shades to their wood furniture (usually made of pine, as the middle class at that time period didn’t have access to grander wood types).  These paint colors added some light and warmth to the inside of their homes during the long, cold and dark winter months in up in Scandinavia.  We love the Gustavians for their simplistic style that always has a hint of sophistication without being overly grand, which is so versatile when pairing with our more modern pieces of today!
