This amazing apartment caught my eye on Architectural Digest España and I had to share it. There’s so much to admire here, from the patina of those herringbone parquet floors to the overwhelming elegance of this interior, which feels almost gallery-like in the selection of artworks and mid-century furniture, including pieces by Jean Prouvé and Charlotte Perriand, and lighting by Serge Mouille.

And, stating the obvious really, but the artworks, including pieces by Manolo Hugué, Julio González and Joaquín Torres García, have such an impact within this space, as each painting and drawing and sculpture has been placed as part of a carefully considered composition. Very, very beautiful.

With Stockholm on my list of must-see places, the beautiful Ett Hem hotel recently caught my eye. Not just because of its strikingly, stylish interior which was desgined by UK based Studioilse, more of that later, but because it is just that little bit different to the usual run-of-the-mill hotel environment. Ett Hem is a place that allows and encourages their guests to become part of it, treated as friends who are staying, where you can turn on the television in the sitting room, help yourself from the fridge, borrow the car or take the family dog for a walk! Located in Sköldungagatan, the house was designed by architect Fredrik Dahlberg and built in 1910. It was home to a government official and his wife, a lady with a love for the aesthetics of Karin Larsson, who collected objects, textiles and furniture from all over Sweden. The house today is still a container of beautiful things, with antiques, design and fine furniture - objects and art with real stories and histories, things that frame moments in a life. There is a lounge with sofas to sink into and games to play, a library stacked with lose-yourself reads and a small spa complete with sauna, gym and relaxation room. What the Scandinavians do so well is dress their outdoor spaces just as beautifully as their interior ones. The courtyard garden provides a secret city wilderness, and is a room every bit as important as the interior spaces. Whether you wish to book an entire floor for a celebration or a suite for a romantic getaway, Ett Hem is not your usual hotel…it is far better than that. It is a place to use as you please and enjoy at your leisure, a home-from-home and one I will definitely be putting on my must-stay list! See a short film about the hotel by Studioilse here.
