Frida Ramstedt, a design consultant, owns Scandinavia’s most popular interior design blog. In The Interior Design Handbook she reveals the secrets of effective interior design and styling in this book to help you design a home that suits your space, taste, and lifestyle. The Interior Design Handbook will teach you how to think like a professional designer by providing you with practical tips, rules of thumb, and tricks of the trade.
The latest comprehensive guide to interior design, written by a home styling expert who taught a whole Scandinavian generation the skills necessary to build a harmonious house.
According to Frida Ramstedt, we should consider our decorating methods rather than just our materials. We know more about design trends, furniture, and trinkets than ever. Now Frida introduces readers to the fundamental ideas of interior design and styling—what looks nice and, most importantly, why it looks good.
The Interior Design Handbook explains general guidelines with useful pictures, such as what the golden ratio and the golden spiral are, how big your coffee table should be in proportion to your sofa, the ideal height to hang lighting fixtures, and how to create a mood board. No matter where you live or what your style is, you can create a balanced, lovely house by using The Interior Design Handbook.
