… tough to pinpoint. I find so much inspiration in all of the Nordic countries. However, the one I’ve delved into the most is Sweden, particularly due to the diverse elements you can discover there.
… Furillen on northern Gotland. The magical light, the rugged terrain with its chalk-white stone beaches and the windswept pines captivate me.
… the Loft House at Bergaliv landscape hotel in Hälsingland in northern Sweden. The small architectural cottages, designed by Fria Folket, overlook the sea at Orbaden. Dwelling in the woods surrounded by nature provides the most beautiful and tranquil experience. The quiet simplicity encountered during your stay encourages you to pause and contemplate life’s true essentials. It becomes clear how little one truly needs, deeply enriched by the union of nature, architecture and the balanced interiors and food offered at the location.
… restaurant Matateljén in Enskede. I adore the menu and the cosy atmosphere of this intimate spot. In the summer, a stop at Karshamra Mat & Trädgård is a must for the best wood-fired pizza, served right next to their garden. Another culinary and architectural delight is a visit to Osprey Farm near Strängnäs.
… Gemla Vinbar. Though I don’t often have nights out anymore, it’s my top pick for a natural wine experience in a cosy setting.
… Artilleriet, an inspiring interior shop I eagerly visit when in Gothenburg.
… embracing nature. Whether in the mountains, the archipelago or on an eco farm, it’s the simplicity and authenticity that resonate. It’s about views and surroundings that prompt us to pause and breathe. Personally, Niehku Mountain Villa in Riksgränsen is on my bucket list, be it for summer hikes or winter skiing.
