Swedish Style American Home

Hope you all had a good night's sleep and are ready to get up and go. We have a lovely home to see today. It was featured on Martha Stewart's site a long time ago and it has finally landed here. Owners David Weiss and Martina Arfwidson's home by the Hudson chose to combine casual American style with Swedish tradition.

Distressed carved wood Gustavian chairs in the foyer.

Weiss, a restaurant owner and chef, prepares crayfish in the kitchen.

A pale palette ensures bright interiors all year. The Gustavian-style chairs are vintage.

Massive floor-to-ceiling mirrors in the living room illuminate the space and help bring the outdoors inside.

A Swedish daybed is upholstered in green velvet, revealing Arfwidson's love of watery colors. An antique gilded mirror on the floor rests against a wall. Notice how the pictures were hung with the bottom line at the same level.

Storage in style. This antique Swedish bench holds bedding and table linens underneath the seat. A white mirror reflects a collection of gardening hats.

All images Martha Stewart.
