"New Swedish Style" presents hundreds of ideas to inspire pure and simple elegance in the home. Easy shapes and textures, crisp checks and florals dominate these cozy painted rooms, where gingham curtains and fresh flowers evoke the brisk breezes of summer and the spirit of Carl Larsson's Sundborn.

An interior designer working in London, Waddell presents the uncluttered country style that is now being championed in such books as Perfect Country Rooms, reviewed above. With the advice to "keep it light and simple, and always pare down the unnecessary," she describes Swedish interior design style, with a special focus on Swedish arts and crafts designer Carl Larsson and his home in Sundborn, Sweden. Most of this well-illustrated book consists of how-to projects such as creating accents with wood, constructing curtains, and antiquing a table with clear, easy-to-follow instructions. Similar to Rosalind Burdett's Essential Swedish Style (LJ 5/15/96), which contains fewer illustrations and covers a broader range of decorating styles, Waddell's book is recommended for interior design collections that cater to a do-it-yourself clientele.
