Steal This Look: A Serene Guest Room in Stockholm, Sweden

March 27, 2018

We’ve long admired the inviting interiors at Ett Hem, a hotel in Stockholm, Sweden, designed by Ilse Crawford of Studioilse. Guest room color palettes are “the sort of tones that human skin looks good against,” Crawford told Monocle back in 2012.

Here, a guest suite inspired by a Carl Larsson painting is a look we’d like to replicate—Swedish tiled Kakelunger stove and all. Here’s our list of similar design sources.
