The Ilse Crawford designed Ett Hem in Stockholm
Ett Hem was a private residence built in 1910. The people who built it had a propensity for beauty, and 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 where functionality meets beauty.
The success in intricately transforming the house into a hotel, whilst still retaining the individuality and personality of the original, is a testament to the tenaciousness of interior designer Ilse Crawford who has been involved in the project since the start.
Transforming the house into a hotel has been an incredibly delicate process: owner Jeanette Mix wanted to retain its personality but it also had to offer all the services required by modern travellers. The result is that Ett Hem is again a happy house filled with the best collection of furniture, Scandinavian antiques and design.
With twelve rooms, Ett Hem offers discerning guests comfortable interiors and bedrooms full of summery whiteness of light. Outdoors, the courtyard garden is a secret city wilderness that is the perfect place for summer breakfasts or winding down in the evening over a chilled bottle of wine.
Ett Hem is not the usual hotel. Ett hem is a place where guests are treated as friends of the family, a place that allows guests to become part of it and feel at home.
