The hottest news on the Stockholm scene is the usurper to the city’s luxury crown, Ett Hem; a simply breathtaking, 12 suite boutique, set in a majestic 1910’s townhouse. No stone… artwork, antique, textile, furniture, garden, hammam, kitchen or luggage tag was left unturned here, the hotel’s visionary owner, Jeanette Mix has lovingly crafted the ultimate home from home, from scratch. And it’s all in the name, ‘Ett Hem’ literally meaning “at home”. Except in your own home, you wouldn’t gasp audibly as every door opens to yet another stunning Isla Crawford imaginarium (look out for the custom designed bar and a miniature version in each suite).

Add all this to a hand-picked dream-team in hospitality.Kenneth Hallström is the general manager who didn’t need much persuading to stay in Stockholm to run this boutique, despite plans to escape the Swedish winters to Asia. His boyfriend runs the kitchen, where you’re encouraged to wander in, sit down and chat; to discuss fika, or a barbeque steak.

The place is faultless. The only problem is that once you’ve settled in, you’ll not want to leave.
