Spotlight on

Ett Hem

Words by LUCY SIDDALL

The achingly stylish Swedish hotel nestled in the heart of the city’s historic Östermalm district, where art and history meet a Scandinavian aesthetic and personal touches are the ultimate luxury.

Stockholm's luxury boutique hotel, Ett Hem, expanded its hospitality horizons last year by launching three new apartments designed for long-stay guests. Tucked away in the serene Lärkstaden area of Östermalm, these apartments opened on September 1st, 2023, at Sköldungagatan 6, and continue the hotel’s unmatched reputation of refinement, comfort, and sustainability. Steeped in beauty yet always functional, the expanding hotel is a testament to the vision of its owners and designer.

The new addition marks a continued effort by Jeanette Mix, the proprietor of Ett Hem and renowned British designer Ilse Crawford of Studio Ilse to evolve the concept of luxury living. The duo has meticulously renovated the hotel’s third townhouse to create a series of living spaces that promise the comforts of home with the elegance and impeccable style of a high-end hotel.

Ett Hem, which means "a home" in Swedish, has been setting standards in hospitality since its inception in 2012. The hotel is known for its cosy, familiar atmosphere, which feels both luxurious and welcoming. Celebrating its 10th-anniversary last summer, Ett Hem expanded its offering by opening an additional facility at Sköldungatan 4, including ten new hotel rooms, expanded communal spaces such as a large, spacious kitchen, living areas, and a lush connecting garden.

Jeanette Mix comments on the addition, "The response has been enormously positive since our start and especially after last summer when we launched Sköldungatan 4. It’s a testament to our commitment to a sustainable and intimate hotel experience that resonates deeply with our guests."

Ett Hem - Residents Lounge

“We designed the apartments to be a home away from home, offering all the necessities for a longer stay with the unmatched comfort and hospitality of Ett Hem.”

The newly launched residences feature two floors of artfully designed spaces equipped with state-of-the-art technology and elegant, elevated furniture, all handpicked or designed by Mix and Crawford. Each apartment offers a seamless blend of aesthetic appeal and functionality, designed to meet the needs of long-term visitors looking for a stylish and sophisticated yet immersive experience in Stockholm.

Ilse Crawford shares her enthusiasm about the project, "I am delighted and grateful to continue our work, evolving and enhancing the Ett Hem experience. We designed the apartments to be a home away from home, offering all the necessities for a longer stay with the unmatched comfort and hospitality of Ett Hem."

The new residences not only extend Ett Hem’s capacity but also reinforce its reputation as a pioneer in combining the personal touches of a homestay with the luxuries of high-end hospitality. This innovative approach will undoubtedly attract more travellers seeking an extended stay in Stockholm’s most picturesque district.
