I had great expectations for this book and I am somewhat disappointed. I think 18th century Swedish design is elegant, refined and a joy to look at
and live with. The country house is a nice book but I feel it does fall short of my expectations of what I wanted to see. I did not do a thorough read through but after skimming the pages quite a few times, nothing stopped me from wanting to read more or open the book more than I did. Others might enjoy it, but I am sorry that I purchased this one.
