Those who mourned deeply when Swedish antiques dealer Linda Kennedy decided to move on to other things from her eponymous store Chloe Decor, L.A. a few years ago have good reason to celebrate!
Linda is back... her amazing eye and talent now focused exclusively on floral design! You may recall that Linda and her husband Lindsay's home were featured in our book "Swedish Interiors" and that this grey gustavian dropleaf table in the photo above was highlighted. The Kennedys have since moved but Linda chose to bring this very special table with her and we are glad she did - look how beautiful her vases look all lined up on this rustic country piece.
Anyone who knows Linda knows that she has always had an inspired eye when it comes to design and florals. Her fresh, simple bold arrangements shown in the book were so inspiring as to have spawned a run on Casa Blanca Lilies when the book was released, not to mention a brisk demand for Swedish antique containers at our store in Connecticut!
Last year, Linda decided to take the plunge and take up her floral passion professionallly and has since finished studying in New York. Back in Los Angeles now fulltime, she is in demand with both industry event planners and young Santa Monica brides. One can see why in these photos sent to Rhonda and I the other day.
