Book Launch Celebration

We are so excited that Swedish Country Interiors has been released at last! A thank you to all for bearing with our erratic postings during the next several weeks as we begin our book tour. Our posts have been few and far between as we are also busy preparing for the Washington CT Antiques Show coming the first weekend of October. ( the photo above is a sampling of the types of Swedish items we will be featuring in our booth!) We are looking forward to settling into a winter of bringing you some great posts on homes in Sweden as well as around the States - so please keep checking in!

A huge thank you and hug to Valorie Hart at visual * vamp for featuring images from Swedish Country Interiors in her posts this last week! She does a fantastic job of showing how easy it is to inject a dash of Swedish style into your home, no matter what your budget or existing decor. Refreshing, relaxed and natural - a room done with a bit of Swedish style can be totally uplifting. Valorie is always so stylish so we are very flattered to have been covered by her. Read Valorie's super hints on getting a Swedish look at :

To learn even more about Swedish Country style we invite you to join us at our very own COUNTRY SWEDISH INTERIORS BOOK LAUNCH CELEBRATION, Saturday, September 26 in Washington Depot, CT. There will be a 1:00 pm Book Signing Kickoff at the legendary HICKORYSTICK BOOKSHOP where we look forward to meeting you! Join us afterwards at our ELEISH VAN BREEMS, LTD. Showroom, located down the road at 18 Titus Road, for a lively and colorful 3:00 p.m. presentation on Swedish Country design. Be sure to stop at neighboring Marty's Cafe and pick up a celebratory Ligonberry Smoothie to fuel you on your way!

After our discussion on Swedish Country design we will be hosting a light smorgasbord at our Showroom starting at 4:00 p.m. Space is limited for the talk and smorgasbord so please call or e-mail to let us know you are coming! ( For addresses and more info contact Jamie at Eleish van Breems 860-868-1200)
We really hope you can join us for any one of these events or to spend the whole day with us in charming Washington Depot. We look forward to seeing you!

  1. I did receive the book last week through Amazon Germany and I just love it! But I must admit that your first work (which I have as well) is more appealing to me.
    Many congratulations to all of you!
    Best greetings from Belgium,


  2. I'm absolutely loving your new book!
    I ordered 10 copies for our shop (one for me, of course!).
    My clients and customers are loving it!


  3. SRK Herry - Thank you for visiting!

    Marjolijn - We are so glad that you like the book! Yes, the first book was about a more eclectic group of homes showing everything from traditional to modern. We are working on our next project to be titled Swedish Modern Interiors!

    Brooke - Thank you so much for offering our book in your gorgeous store!!! Wow! We are starting to scout for this next book so if you have any projects up your sleeve...wink, wink.

    Best to All,
