This is the book I've been looking for, for a long time. If you want loads of pictures of Gustavian and Swedish-inspired interiors, whether traditional or modern, this is the book to choose - it has page after page of excellent colour photographs, with informative captions and almost none of the usual guff you get in such books. It is not a how-to, but it is very easy to copy or riff on the interiors shown. Since buying it, I have painted most of our living-room furniture distressed white or pale grey, and the difference it has made to light levels is astonishing. Well worth the price of purchase.
