When Prince Gustav returned from Versailles- he set out to copy the styles he saw there. The Swedes simplified the designs, lightened the colors- made it their own. Fast forward over 200 years, and those Swedes are reinterpreting the styles again. I don’t know what to call it- neo-neo-classical, modern neo-classical? Or of course, I could call it: So. Freakin. Awesome.
