This is a hotel were luxury truly resides and the most luxurious element is the choice of lifestyle freedom offered to its guests.
Ett Hem was a private residence built in 1910, for two people who loved art and beautiful things. They left their mark on this townhouse, situated in a peaceful, residential area of Stockholm. This Arts and Crafts building is a tranquil home away from home, steeped in the Scandinavian aesthetics of Carl Larsson and his wife Karin. Ilse Crawford of Studioilse has converted this 100-year-old house into a boutique hotel filled with richly coloured wood, leather and velvet
Transforming the house into a hotel has been a delicate process: its personality had to remain intact. Yet it also had to offer all the services required by modern travellers. The result is that Ett Hem is again filled with the best collection of furniture, Scandinavian antiques and design. Things that frame moments in life.
With twelve rooms, Ett Hem offers discerning guests comfortable interiors and bedrooms full of summery whiteness of light. Outdoors, the courtyard garden is a room as important as those inside. It’s a secret city wilderness that is the perfect place for summer breakfasts or winding down over a chilled bottle of wine.
Ilse Crawford spent nine years leading interiors magazine British Elle Decoration before launching her own London studio. Her best-known projects include interiors at Shoreditch House in London and Grand Hotel in Stockholm.
