The Edwardian style occurs in most countries from the late 19th century, especially in art, literature and music. At this time, most European countries are developing their own kind of Edwardian style. The aesthetic is based on a interest for the genuine, honest and well-known building culture. In Sweden, the style was influenced by older medieval buildings such as the houses in Gamla stan, Visby and Vasaslotten. The style was also inspired by Germany, Denmark and England. Examples from this period are the founding of Skansen as well as the National Museum in Stockholm!
In more lavish environments, the interior is dominated by the romantic view of history with inspiration from the Viking Age and the Middle Ages. It is not uncommon for the walls to be white washed and adorned with hand-woven textiles in bright colors, often in Old Norse motifs. Wallpaper is still popular, small-patterned wallpaper with flowers arranged in clusters becomes very popular 1915. Large-scale art deco patterns are launched with strong black contours and bright colors, preferably with elements of birds. In the Dining room, dark tapestry wallpapers are still popular, and in the Drawing room, wallpapers mimic shimmering silk fabrics in light colors. For the bedrooms, bright wallpaper with flowers is chosen.
An "authentic and honest" architecture is sought and finer woods such as oak and mahogany are used in carpentry, but a cheaper alternative is dark-stained pine. The doors are usually painted in an off-white color, but for the dining room they were often made of oak or grain-painted.
During the Edwardian era the floor usually consisted of simple and rough floor boards in either pine or spruce. The floors were often treated with linseed soap, varnish or linseed oil paint.
