    Carl and Karin Larsson made a home for themselves in Dalarna, which steered away from modern city life. But their philosophy of life was, in fact, innovative. They used objects of strong colours and modern solutions next to older items, of which Karin Larsson’s green flower shelf by the window is an example. The girl writing a letter was the daughter of one of Larsson’s employees.
