Carl Larsson was a famous Swedish artist and interior designer, representative of the arts and craft movement. His paintings very often featured his own home life, regularly painting his children and the interior of his house. These paintings influenced a wide range of interior design, and his home is now one of the most famous artists houses in the world. Larsson’s paintings are made up of a mixture of soft pastel colours, but with small bursts of bold and very bright colour. This is something that I have noticed recurring in the modern designs, with the bold bright chairs, or feature pieces, in an otherwise plain room.
