Subtle Splendor in Stockholm: Ett Hem Hotel
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
It's always news when London-based Ilse Crawford designs a new project; we've been admiring her quietly luxurious hotel in Stockholm, Ett Hem, since it opened not long ago. Located in a 1910 manor house designed by architect Fredrik Dahlber, the intimate hotel features "robust, paneled spaces that offer shelter from the harsh winters" on the downstairs level. Upstairs, "the house evokes the summery whiteness and lightness of Carl Larsson's Scandinavian interiors." Go to Ett Hem for more information; to see more of the designer's work, go to Studio Ilse .
