'... a rich survey of homes and furnishings inspired by and adapted to their natural environment.  Organised by type of setting, Scandinavia explores forest manors filled with hand-carved, rose-painted treasures and sharp postmodern town apartments, stark houses that peer out from the dunes and snug cottages in the meadow.  The styles range from country to romantic modern, and all are beautiful and imaginative responses to the demands of nature and the search for harmony with her seasonal swings.
The 400 photographs were taken especially for this book, and they are filled with translatable ideas for decorating and design, whether they be for creating a centerpiece of thic green leaves in a white bowl or for displaying a collection of hand-loomed fabrics from a cross beam in the living room.  Always they capture the beauty and distinctive light of Finland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, and Iceland in all seasons.
A beautiful and important book, Scandinavia radiates with the spirit of living design.'
