Meet Mary Durbin


Mary, dear friend and long-time client of AC Dwellings, has also embraced the simple Swedish style and has enjoyed being involved in the transformation of her more traditional English home to one with softer colors and touches of whimsy. She has become an avid collector of vintage Swedish botanicals and works with Terry Carlson on the production of these for Swedish Dekor.



Meet Monique Nelson


Monique became more interested in the Swedish style through a major renovation to her home. Her husband Andy's grandfather is from Sweden, so the Swedish heritage is alive and well in the Nelson household. Monique is involved in the market development of the Swedish herbariums and the intaglios available through Swedish Dekor.
