One should not expect too much from this book. It is one of a whole slew of look-alike titles from publishers Ryland, Peters and Small, with texts that read as if they had been composed by a committee. It is like a series of magazine articles in which we are introduced to the 'beautiful homes' and their owners, with rather more about the private lives of the owners, and less about design, than I for one would prefer (you may differ and be charmed). One advantage of this treatment is that we see very many different versions of Scandinavian style, and we see them lived in, even if the photographer or stylist has clearly tweaked them a good deal.
You would think all this would make this book a useful design resource for those hoping to acheive a Scandinavian aesthetic of their own. Up to a point, Lord Copper.Read more ›
This is not a how-to book in that it doesn't provide tips on achieving the look but it features beautiful images that are simply inspiring. The book makes you want to bring some of those light, bright, calm, functional and unpretentious elements of Scandinavian interiors into your own home.
There are probably more instructive and informative books available for those who want to replicate Scandi style in their homes.

A gorgeous book full of inspiring ideas and beautifully illustrated. Very much like the pared-down modern.
I'm already at the planning stage. So wish I had a rural retreat!
Interesting text and lovely photos - nice to read why people decorated in that style and what their thinking was at the time.Published on 14 Jun. 2014 by B. Smith
