A Blogger with Style: Monika Claassen from Splendid Willow

I'm starting this new series today called "A blogger with Style" where I'm going to profile a blogger and friend who has style in any area of her life.  Frequency of this series, for now, will be irregular but eventually it'll work its way up to every Friday.  I could not possibly pick another blogger to kick off this series than Monika Claassen from Splendid Willow.  Not only for Monika's kindness towards others but also because, yes she is "A blogger with Style".  And in this particular case, in every area of her life. 
Some Interior Designers are in the business by calling or by good taste.  I think in Monika's case it's both.  "I remember drawing rooms in the sand with a large stick and decorating them for as long as I could until my older brother and his friends kicked me off the field..." she says.   Her house was recently featured in the last issue of Rue Magazine and it doesn't take anyone by surprise the laid back elegance atmosphere with a good dose of Swedish influence that accentuates the warmth and coziness.
Monika describes her style as edgy classic with a Swedish twist  and I think she successfully translates that into her interiors.  Monika is not only an Interior Designer, she is also an entrepreneur.  Importing Swedish goods like the beautiful Ilse Jacobsen rain gear to the US market.  You can visit her shop here.  Below are a few images, including never before seen shots of her beautiful home that Monika was kind to share with us.  Thank you Monika for accepting to be part of this new series!
Above is a sneak peak into Monika's son's room, which is already showing signs of a little boy's beautiful and creative room with that edgy Swedish design that characterizes Monika's style.  I can't wait to see the final result.

  1. Not all are true. Everyone has their own way of thinking but I think they have to reconsider. I like to argue for the most accurate results.
