Welcome to our Swedish country home located in Olney, Maryland, just 30 minutes from Potomac, Bethesda and Northwest DC. (We are just north of the ICC Route 200)
When you step through the doors of this 1878 Victorian House you will immediately be struck by the brightness and lightness of our Scandinavian décor. Stroll through the individual rooms and discover why we fell in love with Sweden and its style. Our Swedish story and shop started with a baby...and our desire to be parents. Peter is a first generation Estonian American, so when we heard adoption of our baby from Estonia was possible we began our paper work immediatly. Estonia was newly free at the time we started adoption proceedings so we needed to deliver our papers in person. After a brief visit to Estonia and the orphanage we flew to Stockholm to meet with Peter's cousin who lived in the old town (Gamlastan) I immediately fell in love with everything about this city! We were matched with our son David 9 months after our visit to Estonia and returned to finalize papers. We stayed there for 35 days during which the Swedish cousin, Epp, came to visit. We developed a bond during that time that led to many visits to Sweden and her beloved country house, Klaradal. Since the idea for our shop was developed around her table we thought it only fitting to name the shop after her charming red stuga!
Klaradal is open 7 days a week from 11-5. We are closed most major holidays including New Year's Day.
