Handbok i inredning och styling The Interior Design Handbook

Learn the stylists’ secret tricks!

We know more about interior design today than ever before. Or rather: We know more about knickknacks, furniture and trends than ever before. By contrast, we are less familiar with the basic principles behind interior and styling – what looks good and, most of all, why it looks good. Though we spend more and more on our homes, it’s surprisingly few that are satisfied with their renovations and decorating; the ingredients are all there, but there’s still something missing. How does one go about creating a home that’s functional, balanced and ultimately you?

Home styling guru Frida Ramstedt, the woman behind the blog that has coached an entire Scandinavian generation in the art of creating a harmonious home, thinks it is time that we start thinking about how we ought to decorate, not with what.

In The Interior Design Handbook, Frida Ramstedt provides you with a toolbox of ideas that will rewrite your old notions about interior design and give you the tools you need to create a home you will love. This interior design book contains no glossy photos of styled homes – instead it provides you with pedagogic explanations, in both text and illustrations, of the stylists’ secret tricks, and teaches you basic principles that everyone can enjoy and find useful no matter what their style or taste.
