Lars Bolander’s Scandinavian Design


Given my penchant for Scandinavian style you can imagine how happy I was to receive a copy of Lars Bolander’s Scandinavian Design by Heather Smith MacIsaac which is being released today. (Yes, today!)

Lars Bolander is a leading Swedish interior designer who has designed homes all around the world. In Scandinavian Design, he shares his expertise and experience, showing us how to incorporate and mix Scandinavian elements to create the Scandinavian look in our own homes.

The book starts with architecture, then moves into interiors, room by room, highlighting furniture and accessories.

All of the homes featured in the book are beautiful in their individual way while sharing the very Scandinavian traits of being unfussy, well-proportioned, light-filled and tranquil.

Scandinavian Design is definitely another one you’ll want to add to your library and as I said, it’s being released today. Click here to read more and to see ordering options.


  1. Ally,

    I don't have the book (yet) and I have never visited his store (I believe he has 2?) but I sure admire his style. He is the most fabulous "mixer" of old and new. Just look at the cover – where he smartly placed 18th c. etchings between contemporary paintings. So, my style.

    And his flagship store is in NY!! (:

    Love to you, Mon

  2. Wow, I had no idea. I remember my mentor working with him when I was just starting out in the biz. His office is just over the bridge in Palm Beach. He has a great reputation in the design community here and his book looks awesome! Thanks for sharing.
