The authors present a smorgasbord of fifteen locations. … Each home expresses Swedish style in general and Swedish country style in particular. The book offers something visually appetizing for almost everyone.(Veranda 2009-12-01)
"Compiled with commentary by Swedish interior design experts Rhonda Eleish and Edie Van Breems, the fifteen American country dwellings showcased in 'Swedish Country Interiors' large country estates to small cottages. Showcasing a variety of interiors, each of whom are superbly photographed, 'Swedish Country Interiors' is an ideal resource for ideas and inspirations. Of special note is a converted Connecticut antique paper factory, and a beach house in Laguna Beach, California, each of which has been crafted to an ideal Swedish country retreat. All this and more make 'Swedish Country Interiors' a 192-page compendium of commentary and images that is especially recommended for academic and community library Interior Design reference collections in general, and the supplemental reading lists for non-specialist general readers seeking interior design ideas in particular."(Midwest Book Review 2010-02-10)
