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 back in 2012. Monocle
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.

For more of the hotel interiors, visit Subtle Splendor in Stockholm: Ett Hem Hotel. Paint Above: The pale French-gray-colored walls can be replicated with a paint color like Farrow & Ball’s Cornforth White ($110 per gallon). It’s one of the colors listed in our post Architects’ 8 Favorite Warm Gray Paints. Furniture Above: The 2213 Three-Seater Sofa by Børge Mogensen is available in mahogany (shown), black, and tan through Fredericia Furniture. It can also be sourced through vintage dealers, as shown, on 1st Dibs. Above: The Field Ottoman from the John Derian Collection for Cisco Brothers is a similar style to the round tufted ottoman in Crawford’s composition. This one, too, is rendered in gray Belgian linen for $1,590 at John Derian. Above: For a similar-style Parsons coffee table, the Urban Green Furniture Parsons Coffee Table in white-painted eco MDF is $469.
