This is not a children's picture book, as I thought, is is more of a coffee table book with Carl Larsson's paintings and some notes about the pictures and about his life. Carl Larsson painted the interior of his home. Grown-up fans of Tasha Tudor and Beatrix Potter will probably like this book.
This beautiful book of Carl Larsson's watercolor paintings is accompanied by Lennart Rudstrom's text. Although it is aimed at children, it is very informative about the Larssons' homelife. Carl's style reminds me a little of Tasha Tudor. This would make a perfect coffee table book.

I love this book so much...Carl Larsson's gorgeous paintings and a child-friendly explanation of home life.
Of course, it makes me wish I had paintings on all my doors and walls, and feel like a slacker for not weaving any tablecloths of our own!

I found these paintings enchanting. I just love how everything is decorated. Wish my house looked like that!
