This week, Diane Dorrans Saeks – author of The Style Saloniste along with twenty books, including one with Michael Smith (the interior designer for the Obama White House) – turns her attention to Gunnebo House and Gardens, just south of Gothenburg. Now open to the public, Gunnebo was built in the late eighteenth century as a summer residence for the merchant John Hall. The architect was Carl Wilhelm Carlberg.

The handsome interior photos from Saeks’s site were taken by Christopher Flach, who kindly granted permission for two to be reproduced here as well (for more information, see his website: www.chrisflach.com)
