This book is inspiring if you like clean, simple and chic design. Great design is inspired by your own personal items and experiences and things you love and have substantial and significant meaning--Scandinavian design embodies this aesthetic and that's why I love it--this book fosters that style.

I love that this book had a mixture of old and new and that each home told a story. I like to read about the design, just as much as I like to look at the pictures. I was a little disappointed that the primary focus seemed to be on the wealthy. I was hoping for a Scandinavian design book on how the 'everyday' home is lived in. These were either secondary homes or complete gut jobs with architects and designers involved (nothing simply about that). I'm not anywhere close to the budgets of these home owners but that doesn't mean I cannot take inspiration from this book, and it was certainly filled with lots of beautiful and inspiring photos.

This book pleased me with various styles of Scandinavian living rather than the predictable.
I found it very interesting, well produced, lovely photography and a good reference book.
