Item description for Living Museums in Scandinavia by Per Nagel...
An inspiring, interesting and useful insight into Swedish life and interior decoration of the past. This is a lavish photographic guide to thirteen historic houses in Scandinavia that have been preserved exactly as their original owners left them. They have now been opened to the public as museums. The houses featured represent a wide range of types, from the sophisticated Jugend style to simple country dwellings, city houses and studios, and belonged to artists, architects and scientists, as well as ordinary folk. Painstakingly reconstructed and preserved with authenticity, these homes offer the reader a rare opportunity to travel back in time to experience the best in Scandinavian style, characterized by simplicity and by clarity of light and color.
