Laura. Home Ideas. February 28th , 2017.
London, a capital city of United Kingdom with 40,000 Swedes living there, is sometimes called Sweden‘s fifth city. Ulla Jonason Siebenmann with her husband Bob and her daughters Lisa, 6 years old and Anna 4 years old are now part of London Swedish community. Bob Siebenmann is the head of an international crude materials firm in London. And Ulla devotes her time to the children and to furnishing the new home after extensive renovations including new wiring and heating and work in the kitchen and bathroom.
Ulla lived in Paris a long time ago for many years, where she was a model. She like the open—plan kitchen with louvered doors to the living room. And it has become the heart of the home where family and friends get together for long, late dinners, French style. But the ties with Sweden are strong and the influence can be visible in the house, particularly in the children’s rooms which are furnished completely in Carl Larsson style.
This house is typical of central London⁏ it has three floors with a staircase running through the whole house, with one or two rooms on each floor. The home is furnished in pastel tones and the fabrics are generally from Laura Ashley and The Designer‵s Guild.
A living room has a high ceiling and is light also airy, with pale xanthous walls and white woodwork. The curtains, as well as the wickerwork table and chairs, come from The Designers Guild while the white sofas with detachable cotton covers and Dhurrie rug come from The Conran Shop. The large mirror over the sofa, with a simple wood frame, also comes from Conran.
Ulla has sacrificed a room on the top floor to get a large, ingeniously planned bathroom. The free‐standing tub is old, and the ceramic tiles on the wall and floor are designed by Courreges.
