Fancy a trip to Stockholm? Situated in a residential area in Stockholm stands this former private residence from 1910 by architect Fredrik Dahlberg, that is now turned into a hotel called Ett Hem (A Home). The owner of the hotel, Jeanette Mix, wanted to create a hotel that would keep the personality of the private house. Together with British designer Ilse Crawford from Studio Ilse (you can see her own amazing London apartment here) they truly created a hotel that feels like home. The hotel has 12 rooms with beautiful comfortable furniture and soft colours. Outside there’s a wonderful garden, ideal for a nice outside summer breakfast or a relaxing evening. I absolutely love this, hotels can feel very unpersonal and a bit cold, but this truly feels and looks like a home.
I don’t have any plans of traveling to Paris anytime soon, but when I see these pictures of Hôtel Providence in Paris I might change my mind. The hotel was built in 1854 and it breathes the Parisian feeling. The hotel with 18 rooms (every room having a custom-made bar!), a downstairs bar and a restaurant is decorated with vintage furniture which gives it a warm and comfortable atmosphere. Just look at the pictures and dream yourself in Paris.
