My home town! Stockholm. I was there two weeks ago and this is what I want to share with you! Above, I went for a drink with a friend @ STORSTAD, nice restaurant and bar. It has been on the scene for quite a while now but is still going strong! Odengatan. This place use to be a pizzeria where I use to hang out when I was in my late teens. Half a pizza and a carafe of red wine/person. The staff use to laugh at us for having our own carafe....
I am a member of the STYLISTGRUPPEN.SE. A network organisation for stylists in Sweden. I managed to be able to attend one of their meetings. This time held at , showroom and office. They are in charge of PR for Alessi, Royal Copenhagen, Gense and Mairo. Above some of Alessis latest products.
Fabric by Mairo, china by Royal Copenhagen and Alessi (coffee cups). Cutlery by
The interior design shop R.O.O.M. can be found at PUB, Hötorget, Stockholm City Center. Look at this fab interior with elements o the 50:ies. Nice...
Tures bar and brasserie in the Sturecompaniet (Grev Turegatan entrance) has always been my lunchtime favourite. Newly refurbished it has gone a bit more "french".
Matteus, in Sweden famous for its colourful porcelain from Portugal, has just launched this "wooden" new collection. I love it!
On the second floor @ PUB (Hötorget, Stockholm City, Drottninggatan) an art projekt has started where you can find art under £ 1.500 to buy and take away, or just to enjoy during lunchtime.
Christer Sandelin, pop star turned artist, have got himself on a heavy diet to pose as David Bowie on this Bowie tribute art of his!
Lotta Voltaire and her sister Renée are well known ladies on the Stockholm food scene.
Lotta, model turned chef, bakery owner and now, shop owner had recently open @ PUB in Hötorget. "I have always wanted to play shop, she says".
Systrarna Voltaire, (The Voltaire Sisters) new shop @ PUB, Hötorget.
Chairs made from recycled t-shirts! R.O.O.M. @ PUB, Hötorget.
More 1950:ies, wallpaper from Sanderson etc. Interior from R.O.O.M., PUB, Hötorget.
Forest inspired Christmas is the trend this year. More from R.O.O.M., PUB, Hötorget.
Svenskt Tenn, these days an institution in Stockholms posh quarters of Östermalm, has had a recent refurbishment and more space by moving the offices out!
Unfortunately I found it lacking inspiration and boring! What use to be a source of ideas and with interiors full of colour and unexpected mixes, was now plain and without excitement. Shape up!
