 Swedish Interiors Rhonda Eleish and Edie van Breems Swedish Interiors is the first book to share the history, progression, and
key elements of Swedish style and how to use it in many different styles of homes. From the white- and blue-hued images of the
  familiar Gustavian style to the gold accents and luxurious patterns found in the Swedish Baroque, Rococo, and Biedermeier
   periods, the secret to Swedish design is in having the confidence to mix old and new while maintaining a clean and simple
  aesthetic. Emphasizes light, comfort and elegance. Is found throughout the world, proving its wide appeal and the ease with
 which it blends with other design styles. The authors operate Eleish Van Breems Antiques, a renowned Swedish antiques and
decorating resource. Featured on Martha Stewart Living, and in Country Living, House Beautiful, Travel & Leisure, the New York
               Times, Traditional Home, Better Homes and Gardens, Victoria, and Yankee. Regional author tour.

The New York Times Review Written By Wendy Moonan, June 21, 2007 By Rhonda S. Eleish "evbantiq" (Woodbury, CT)
  This review is from: Swedish Interiors (Hardcover) FROM THE NEW YORK TIMESBy Wendy MoonanPublished: May 4, 2007
in The New York TimesSwedish Simplicity"American interest in Swedish antiques is just exploding now," said Jill Dienst, who
owns Dienst & Dotter in Sag Harbor, N.Y., a shop that specializes in Swedish antiques and accessories from the 17th through
the 20th century. "What I'm selling are my best pieces, the highest quality Stockholm cabinetmakers, which to me means people
are becoming more educated about the whole range of Swedish antiques."If so, the publication of "Swedish Interiors" by
Rhonda Eleish and Edie van Breems (Gibbs Smith, $39.95) seems timely.The authors, both of Swedish heritage, own Eleish
van Breems Antiques in Woodbury, Conn. Their coffee-table book features 14 stylistically different American houses to show
that Swedish style extends beyond the familiar 18th-century Gustavian look to encompass Swedish Baroque, Rococo,
Biedermeier and Modernist...

  This review is from: Swedish Interiors (Hardcover) Finally a book that shows us that Swedish interiors, and furniture do not
always mean grey and white, but that Swedish can mean a variety of color, and light. The two authors Rhonda Eleish and Edie
van Breems have searched America and have found charming homes that show us rich colors that can light up those dark days
of winter, and show us Spring and Summer can come all year round. This is a beautiful book, that you can tell is well researched
and written with care. The beautiful photos are wonderfully selected,and if you are interested in Swedish design, and colors this
is the book to choose. You can tell the passion the authors have for this subject with the love and care they put into this book.

The design guide we have all been waiting for, June 26, 2007 By J. Arber
 This review is from: Swedish Interiors (Hardcover) This is a monumental book for both the general public with an interest in
the nuances associated with interior design and the seasoned interior design professional who is seeking a guide book to
Swedish style. Not only are you rewarded with lush pictography throughout the book but the corresponding discourse is
informative and inspiring on numerous levels. This book will take pride of place within my expansive collection and I am sure
that I will be referring to it for years to come
