Author(s): Elisabeth Dunker
Take a peek into the fascinating life of Elisabeth Dunker, blogger, writer, stylist, designer, photographer, and artist. This, her first book, is filled to the brim with inspiring images of everything that brings her joy. Dunker welcomes readers into her studio and shows off her stunning collections, which range from colorful baskets to Scandinavian china, and then leads a tour of her colorful Gothenburg apartment, with its enviable mix of handmade blankets, vintage finds, bold printed wallpaper, and fabrics. She also generously provides plenty of ideas for recreating her unique look, along with quick and easy projects to try at home. Then, enjoy a trip out of the city as we explore Elisabeth's cabin in the woods, with atmospheric photos of the beautiful Swedish countryside and yet more decorating ideas, this time with a more rustic feel. With visits to the homes of Elisabeth's creative friends and partners, we also meet Japanese artist Mogu Takahashi and Swedish illustrator Henning Trollbck. This inspiring book is full of pictures, fun and heart.
