“Many designers take their cues from fabulous hotels, and lately I’ve been dreaming about Ett Hem, a boutique hotel in Stockholm that we plan to visit this summer. Built in 1910, the townhouse once belonged to artist Carl Larsson. The stay will be part of a trip that includes Norwegian fjords and Swedish archipelagoes. Thoughts of Scandinavia have me dreaming of simple, black-and-white interiors; cool marbles; and botanical accents.”
