Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Barwick and the editors of House Beautiful here bring us the appealing style of the Scandinavian countries. Known for its simplicity, respect for natural materials, use of color, decorative detail, and rosemaling, the Scandinavian style of decorating blends in effortlessly with the country style and is rapidly gaining in popularity in the United States. This tour of more than 20 residences, accompanied by lovely color photos, takes us to Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, and a home in the United States that uses this style, covering both exteriors and interiors. While the Scandinavian influence in decorating is increasing in popularity, the number of books on the subject is still quite limited. Therefore, this book is recommended for any size library.-- Barbara Bartos, St. Croix Cty. Lib., Hammond, Wis.
