4.0 out of 5 stars A helpful book,
This review is from: Living with Light (Hardcover)I found this book to be more useful than I expected. It has lots of good suggestions how to improve the way light is used internally acccompanied with pictures from homes in Scandinavia and the UK. What I particularly liked were other general design hints and tips included inside such as hanging a collection of pictures around a common theme and which ones are more likely to draw the eye in etc. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for ways to maximise the effects of natural light in their interiors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book on Swedish and Gustavian interiors,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Living with Light (Paperback)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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interior design book,
This review is from: Living with Light (Paperback)This is a beautiful "coffee table book" and it has photographs and setting pictures, which are lovely to to look at. Very Swedish. I would have liked more specific practical information, for example how to cope with strong sun light in a room, the heat and how to avoid fading and maybe more about how to create the look and where to buy from in the UK.

5.0 out of 5 stars Living with Light,
This review is from: Living with Light (Paperback)This is truly an uplifting, thought provoking book that brings hope and
understanding. The spirit communications are inspiring and I did not want
them to finish. This book left me wanting more, I could not put it down. The
story of Marys life at the beginning gives anyone facing adversity hope and
strength to keep putting one foot in front of the other and the second part
of spirit communication gives an understanding of life and why we at times
face this adversity and the valuable lessons they provide. Everyone who
reads this book will find their heart opens and their light shines brighter.
Thank God that spirit has Mary and her nephew as a voice and that they have
agreed to share these precious messages with us.
