Swedish hotelier Nobis Group have renovated a former girls' school in an Art Nouveau building, transforming it into Stockholm’s latest must-visit hotel. At Miss Clara, the guest rooms offer sparse yet warmly detailed Scandi comforts, and the public spaces are resplendent with Art Nouveau décor.  Photographs via Miss Clara Hotel . Above: The renovation of the 1910 building was carried out by Swedish architect Gert Wingårdh. While sparsely furnished, the guest rooms are rich in texture. A herringbone-patterned wood floor continues up the walls to form a wainscot. An elegant valet perched at the bottom of the bed is made from bentwood and echoes the form of a Thonet chair .  Above: A sculptural "type-objet" Lampe Gras lamp  is wall mounted as a bedside lamp. Above: A detail of the dark wood herringbone wainscot. In Chevron and Herringbone: Spot the Difference , we discuss how to tell the two patterns apart.

Above: An open metal stair rail with a distinctive Art Nouveau pattern is decorative as well as functional. Above: At the reception desk, a row of cut-glass pendants contrast with the cool aesthetic of Apple monitors. Did you know that cut glass is looking good again?

Above: The warm tones of a wood-topped table and amber glass chandelier complement the dark grays of the dining room.  Above: A metal framework of pendant lights animate the tall ceilings of the restaurant. Above: Floor-to-ceiling curtains add warmth, texture, and a sense of coziness to the space. Above: The  Miss Clara  has a corner entry marked by a column in the middle of an Art Nouveau arch.
