Apart from going from the outside inwards I learned that the desert spoon or fork goes above the plates.

Agreed. I honestly had to brace myself for the inevitable before scrolling down to the "after" picture.

That is just perfect for these kind of dreary old wood interiors. Very well done!

I've always been tormented by mosquitos. It's actually a big consideration everytime I move somewhere. Then I heard that antihistamines work wonders so I hope I'll survive this years visit to friends in the countryside with most of my blood still inside of me.

Wow! I had forgotten that "Before & After" can actually be impressive. Gorgeous work.

The really old ones were sturdier so perhaps they've somwhat returned to an earlier model?

Love this! And not just the colour but also details like choice of sink, floor tiles, mirror and so on.

Be wary of eating, but especially drinking, out while in Scandinavia! The prices are outrageous. A glass of house wine may cost up to $15 in Stockholm - and even more in Norway. On the other hand tips are not the norm, though the staff may well expect something if they notice you come from a country where tipping is common.

I like nearly everything individually but put together like this it's far too busy for my taste. Also wonder if the black ceiling might not have been a mistake.

Vintage cane-back(?) chairs in nice condition, like these were, are pretty hard to come by. I reckon you lowered their value significantly by painting them. That said, it was well done and they do look like they fit your home beautifully.

I saw this and immediately thought that it was too stylish to be American - only to find out that I was correct! Sad to miss your other rooms.
