Swedish de-light

To kick off this week I wanted to show you the cool lighting in my home away from home in Stockholm. In the public areas designer & architect trio Claesson Koivisto Rune decided upon some funky lamps, like the Sticky lamps by Chris Kabel for DROOG:

The artistic theme uniting the hotel and its facilities is fog. It relates to the surrounding water & marine historical past. It somehow also makes sense as the hotel is central yet secluded. And very quiet too.

One of the lamps in my room (and those amazing Pool curtains again):

Sometimes unpractical design is cool. Such as this pebble in the wash basin. It is removable so that you can also wash your hands without splashing water everywhere ;o)

Love those oversized wooden lampshades by David Trubridge:

Ten reasons to stay at Hotel Skeppsholmen in Stockholm:

a central, yet secluded location (you're staying on an island!), at only 15 minutes from the city center
the seaview
very comfortable beds by Duxiana (traditional Swedish bedding)
a delicious breakfast buffet ( no individual portions of butter and marmelade here! It feels like you're in your family kitchen with homemade bread & fresh juices )
a great hotel restaurant called Långa Raden (I need to come back to try it! Everyone told me it was really good)
quirky lighting everywhere
Byredo toiletries and signature scent (the entire hotel smells lovely!)
your neighbor is the Moderna Museet
very friendly staff, dressed by Swedish fashion brand Acne
the hotel is eco-labeled

  1. What a lovely hotel. You've sold it to me with the funky lighting and when you said Byredo toiletries and scent – that sealed it! Thanks again for showing me the parts of stockholm I didn't get to see. xx
