The Interior Design Handbook: Furnish, Decorate, and Style Your Space
By Frida Ramstedt
The new detailed bible of interior design from a home styling expert who has taught an entire Scandinavian generation how to create a harmonious home.
Frida Ramstedt argues that we should think about how we decorate rather than concentrate on what we decorate with. We know more about fashion patterns, decor, and trinkets than ever before. Now, Frida introduces readers to the fundamental concepts of interior and styling—what looks good and, most importantly, why it looks good.
The Interior Design Handbook includes useful diagrams that explain general design principles such as the golden ratio and the golden spiral, as well as the correct size of a coffee table in comparison to your couch, the best height to hang lighting fixtures, and the best ways to use a mood board. No matter where you live or your style, use The Interior Design Handbook to create a balanced, beautiful home.
