Take design lessons from the enviably sleek spa bathroom and colourful bedrooms in designer Git Gustavsson’s unique Scandinavian-mod home. Style Editor Michael Penney shows how to add personality to neutral IKEA rugs and doormats with paint, pattern and colourful stripes! Plus, design editor Cameron MacNeil explains how graphic bedding, smart storage and the right paint can transform a Craftsman-style bedroom without diminishing its historical integrity.
