Interior designers have increasingly taken inspiration from the design philosophy of Scandinavia, which promotes the creation and use of everyday objects that are beautiful but practical, affordable and accessible. This handbook shows how to create a tailor-made home inspired by Scandinavian design. Working through the home one room at a time, the book highlights classic items of furniture and signature accessories. In-depth case studies demonstrate the essential elements and provide inspiration. Colour combinations are explored to help personalise these iconic styles for the home.
Anyone who has found themselves seduced by the Scandinavian style and is eager to bring it to their own home will find this book a valuable resource.
