Larson's Residence, 1890s, Sweden

(From anticlockwise)
Frieze painted by Larsson's daughter in much the same style as the father's.
Larsson's bedroom lacks original features but the floral decoration was more important than any strict historical accuracy.
Illustration by Karl Larsson. Influences from France and the English Arts and Crafts movement. This extraordinary mixture of styles in the dining room of Sunborn is held together by Larsson's idiosyncratic interpretation of each.
