***Pets on furniture posts will resume next week when I return from holidays! - Kim

Back in '08 Jo blogged some beautiful photos from the portfolio of Swedish stylist Eva Lindh. I came across her website recently and found more photos of gorgeous Scandinavian spaces that I had to share, 'cause you all know Jo and I can't get enough of this style...(especially for me during another dull, dark and dreary winter).

"I could really use some help with finishing off my living room. The major elements (couch, love seat, ottoman, and cowhide rug) would remain intact, but I need some help filling in the accessories, especially what to do about curtains. We are hoping to add 2 low chairs, as the living room is a great room, with the kitchen and entry stairs behind where the photo was taken. I would love any ideas that people have to share. I am thinking of taking out the existing lamp and putting in a larger floor lamp in the corner (like this one)." - Jennifer

"Living contentedly is to a great extent feeling comfortable in ones own surroundings. Facilitating this is our principal objective."
Chester Jones is a master at combining modern and traditional elements to create classic designs that are timeless.
"The contents play the major part. Whether old or new they can stimulate the intellect and appeal to the emotions. We use antiques and artifacts from many different cultures and periods, not for their nostalgia but through careful juxtaposition they can excite one another, become re-energized and relevant in the present."
