Ett Hem was a private residence built in 1910 for an official and his wife. This structure has a great history, surrounded by beautiful things. They left their mark on this townhouse, located on Sköldungagatan, in Stockholm’s upmarket Lärkstan district. The original lady of the house had a love for the aesthetics of Karin Larsson - the wife of the famous Swedish water-colour painter Carl Larsson (1853-1919) – who collected objects, textiles and furniture from all over Sweden. The Arts were a great part of the couple’s lives and the residence incorporates this through truly unique ‘objèts’ and artwork. Yes this house had the privilege to be brought up amongst true eclecticism. The designers behind it, British interior designer Ilse Crawford of Studioilse and Swedish owner Jeanette Mix, have renovated the 1910 Swedish building originally designed by architect Fredrik Dahlberg, converting it into a hotel where luxury resides.

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.

Staying at Ett Hem is like being a house guest in somebody’s private home. Guests are welcome to do as they please but will be taken care of, down to the last detail. Ett Hem means “a home” in Swedish and it does what it says on the tin.

Comfortable living spaces come from the array of tactile materials – sheepskin, leather, brass, glass, cane and felt furnishing.

In winter you can curl up in front of the sitting room stove, retreat into the library for a quiet read or have a cocktail by the piano.

There’s a short menu of dishes using local produce available around the clock, which can be served wherever you prefer. Eat in the kitchen or more formally in the library, or look out at the garden from the Glasshouse, a great place for breakfast.

There are many historical references within this heritage building. Antique chandeliers, lit by real candles, were sourced by Studioilse. Ceramic ovens were added to those guestrooms that did not have one
already.

The twelve rooms at Ett Hem are all different, as you would expect in a private house. Some are more spacious, others more compact, but all have a warm domestic feeling created by a Swedish sensibility using tactile materials such as oak, Gotland stone, and sheepskin. Several of the rooms in this private hotel have open fireplaces or tiled stoves.

This guestroom scheme includes Lamp Pascal floor lights by Vico Magistretti
and a custom-made desk and headboard designed by Studioilse. The art on the wall above the desk is a piece called ‘Next door Nebula’ by Jonas Nobel, one of many of the clients own artworks displayed throughout Ett Hem.
