The book is quite beautiful, featuring a mix of spare modern spaces and traditionally furnished Scandinavian rooms. While the aesthetic is incredibly different, one quite modernist the other a more restrained, almost urban version of shabby chic, the designs share common elements, like muted colors, light floors, beautiful lighting, and an overall soothing sensibility. (All four Scandinavian countries are represented. Can you name them?)
I interviewed Mr. Bolander for “The Inside Source.” I’ll link here when the piece is live later this week. [UPDATE: Lars Bolander on TIS.] Meanwhile, I didn’t want to hold off showing you the beautiful photos. Hopefully you haven’t seen them all on other design blogs yet.
The second image, which pictures a quintessential Gustavian living room, is my favorite. I love the bold blue wallpaper in the bedroom shot too. And, that glass corner bathroom with the overhead rain shower is pretty terrific too.
