David Chipperfield Architects “disappointed” after Nobel Center project is blocked by court

A Swedish court has blocked construction of David Chipperfield’s £100 million Nobel Center in Stockholm, stating that it would cause “significant damage” to the city’s historic waterfront. Chipperfield’s firm was left reeling after Sweden’s Land and Environment Court ruled against plans to build cultural centre and permanent home for the Nobel Prize. “Obviously this is not the verdict

A new location for this Stockholm salon, Paloma Dolores

Almost exactly one month ago in Stockholm three women named Anna, Karin and Isabella open their newer and larger hair salon location.

The women designed and sketched the renovation for their new spots and chose every facet of the interior themselves. From the color palette to mirrors and even the bespoke smocks made exclusively for Paloma Dolores, every part of this space has evidence of their personal handiwork. The owners even got their handy boyfriends to pitch in on a lot of the work.

The beautiful photos were taken by Ulrika, who will recognize from her recent articles including this Autumnal DIY and part I of a city guide to STHLM! Find the new location at Östgötagatan, in Södermalm.









City Guide to Stockholm Part I: SHOPPING

Swedish Photographer and mother of two, Ulrika Nihlén is becoming a regular contributor here at AMM. Today she shares with us her favorite shopping spots from around the city of Stockholm.

Ten stores I love in Stockholm

I would say I am a pretty skilled internet shopper however I have a love list of small stores I love in Stockholm. I would rather buy few from the small businesses for a bit more money than buy a lot of cheap stuff. Also it feels more environmentally conscious and it is nice talking to the ones who work in the stores, I love that part of small personal businesses.

I mean yes, they are expensive and yes sometimes waaay to crazy for me but all their shops are amazing to visit and come on, I am proud to be a Swede when people around the world say they love Acne! (And also, their shoes and coats ARE worth saving for!)

Nytorgsgatan and Norrmalmstorg are the best locations

by Petra Gardefjord


Hard not to mention the best baby shop in town owned by my sweet friend Petra Gardefjord. She makes moccasins for babies 0-3 years old but in her store she also has so many other lovely handpicked pieces from small brands around the world. You’ll want everything in every little corner in this cutest shop!

Located at Nytorgsgatan 23B

Maybe you don’t go to Sweden to buy flowers but hey, you would love to give this amazing flower shop a visit for your eyes. And the girls who work there are so nice you could stay and chat here forever.

Kåkbrinken 10

This place is sort of unique. All of the crafts are made from their 93 members of craftsmen. They all do work with their hands, mostly ceramics which are totally amazing. Here you can buy these small unique things that you will cherish forever.

This girl has the best of taste. Mimmi has this eye to curate everything she puts in her shop and I subsequently want to have in my own home. Every S I N G L E item. I can go crazy here!

Vattenledningsvägen 57, Hägersten

Japanese tourists come here to find selected sneakers. I like to visit their men’s shop to look at their interior which changes often. I also like their small women’s shop to find a selection of handpicked jewelry.

Krukmakargatan 26

Here you’ll find all the best looking magazines! It’s also the place to find that movie from the 40’s to gift your grandma for Christmas.

Krukmakargatan 24

by Robin Klang and Ejub Bicic


I was so happy when this store opened in last year. Exactly what Stockholm was missing, an interior store with handpicked details from brands that all are built on craftmanship. This store is so beautiful and the founders Robin and Ejub are so nice.

Sankt Eriksplan 15

This little interior store is so cozy and here you will find upcoming artists and new on-trend products (right now I am in love with their terra-cotta milk pot for example). It’s a MUST to visit this place.

Christian Halleröd designs Totême’s Stockholm store

Totême is a Swedish brand created back in 2014 by model Elin Kling and her partner Karl Lindman, and she’s partially to blame for our daughter’s name as well. ;) The clothing line features that simple Scandinavian style you’d expect but that doesn’t mean ordinary, the collections are luxurious (expect to pay upwards of $100 for a white tee) while maintaining an air of effortless, chic style.


Newly opened is their Stockholm store/design studio which was designed by the renowned Christian Halleröd. The purpose of the space was to allow visitors a place to see the brand up close, see some of the design process in action along with a self service station with mirrors and rack of clothes to try on in addition to pre-ordering items from upcoming collections.

Visiting Europe by way of Reykjavik


Unbelievably to me, our trip to Scandinavia was almost four years ago. How many life events that have happened in that short span of time is quite astonishing. Since that trip I unfortunately, lost my father quite suddenly, 7 months later we welcomed another child into our family with the birth of our daughter Elin and then watched her and her brother grow up so much. In the span of four years, there have been countless meals prepared and eaten, clothes and toys that have been worn out or outgrown, rooms in our home have been repurposed and rearranged over and over again, four years of daily activities have been lived out. And yet, the memories that still sit right on the surface of my mind are the ones made during travel.

Four years ago I cannot recall my favorite snack, my favorite song or pair of shoes. Without looking through my blog for photo evidence I could not tell you exactly how the house was arranged or which shows my kids loved to watch the most. Maybe your memory serves you better than mine but a lot of the small details of everyday life have now become a bit fuzzy in my memory.

I can however, still tell you about the small coffee shop my husband and I found in the basement location along a quiet street in downtown Copenhagen. I can tell you about the shops that offered heaps of flowers and young bulb plants on their store sidewalk, even during a very cold first week of April. The sight of Swedish pastries or Danish smørrebrød that sat behind a glass partition at the counter of neighborhood cafes still feel like a recent memory.



Also easily retrieved from my memory is how we planned for our getaway. We live in the Northwest of the United States so we searched for weeks to find the best route with the fewest connections, most competitive prices and largest plane. If you’re going to be on a non-stop flight for more than 7 hours, space becomes a premium issue. Ultimately we chose to fly to Seattle and take Icelandair who flew directly from SEA to RKV, as in Reykjavik, Iceland. From RKV we went right to Stockholm where we planned to spend the first two days. I was really glad not to have a lot of connecting flights all over US airports, the direct flight was really what convinced me most and I believe it was only 7.5 hrs once we left Seattle until the time we flew over the foggy shores of Iceland.


In addition allow me to say the Icelandair plane was incredibly cozy and peaceful. I’ve been in my fair share of cramped and uncomfortable flights and it was such a relief to step on the plane and see this was not going to be one of them. I faintly remember music playing and pillows on every seat, but some of the details are a little lost in my mind because I soon fell asleep. My husband and closest friends will attest that I never fall asleep on planes, just can’t do it no matter how tired I am. Yet on this flight I dozed off easily making the flight duration seem much shorter. Soon we were arriving at RKV which was so nice (the airport was really clean and orderly!) and I remember grabbing skyr and some smoked fish for the next flight. Just a friendly tip, smoked fish is not a good in-flight snack as it tends to be quite fragrant, a quality I unfortunately miscalculated at the time. Moving past the fishy smell it was only another 2.5 hrs before our feet were on Swedish soil. One of the reasons we chose Icelandair was because it’s a wonderful hub for traveling anywhere in Europe. From here we could have visited London or Paris or flown directly to Copenhagen. The other nice is flying from Iceland to many western European cities is just a couple of hours.



The first two days in Stockholm went by in a blur, recovering from jet lag after all. Soon though we made our way to Copenhagen where we spent most of the week before finishing the weekend back in Stockholm again. I shared a few photos taken in Stockholm after we came home from our trip already on the blog but I never shared any from Denmark, (however I did post some different versions to Instagram). Here are some that I managed to dig out of the archives of the cityscape, indoor market, HAY house, a frozen harbor and of course the ubiquitous bikes that seemingly everyone uses in Copenhagen regardless of the season or weather.



Unsure of when we will next travel to Europe, it is something of a goal to visit Iceland as well, not only as a port for flying through, but a place to stay and explore as well. This time we will be traveling with both kids which often means taking our time and enjoying the journey and not just the destination. I’d love to stay in Reykjavik for a few days, visiting lagoons, climbing hills and taking in Icelandic scenery before continuing our journey. After great experiences flying Icelandair to and from Europe, we will certainly be using them again to make new memories visiting countries and cities by way of Reykjavik.

Stockholm : Mornington My Home away from home

Tomorrow I will be finishing up the post with photos of the news I shot while at the Furniture and Light fair, but today I thought it would be a good idea to show off the beautiful premises of Mornington hotel in Stockholm, my home away from home for the week.
Located in Nybrogatan 53 , close to the metro station and just a few minutes away from the best restaurants, cafes and shopping in the city, Mornington offers not only great location and service but also multiple newly renovated rooms to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Do ask for a room at the second floor for a similar look to mine, the stuff will do their best to accommodate you!This is my second time in Stockholm and the second time I have stayed at Mornington ( you can find the previous post  here). This time around due to visiting in winter, my photos turned up a little moodier, a little darker, but at the same time I think they convey my mood better.
Due to being extremely busy while in Stockholm, I did not spend as much time as I would have liked to in the room, however I still found time to enjoy a warm coffee by the window while answering emails early in the morning before going down for breakfast. It is these moments that I feel make for a good start of a day, no matter how busy!

Apartment Rådmansgatan 70B styled by Annaleena for Alexander White

Designed by Paul Hedqvist and built in 1957, a renovated home with large windows and kitchen from Kvänum gets a new style. Thanks to Annaleena who employed the help of some of her own products in the form of candleholders and tables, the space has a unique style that’s modern and lush. The warm cabinets in the kitchen against the steel backslash is surprisingly lovely.

Tables and candleholders from her shop, the beautiful Gubi Stay sofa, mirrored table from Perspective Studio, Fritz Hansen Series 7 chairs, Hem’s Key side table, Taccia lamp by Flos (which I’ve been seeing so much of lately) the Mantis wall lamp, and the beautiful suede boxes and trays by Nordstjerne.

Mornington Hotel in Stockholm

During my last stay in Stockholm a little while ago I had the pleasure of staying at the Mornington hotel in the heart of the city. Just a stone throw away from the metro station and a few minutes walking distance from an array of shops and restaurants, with its beautiful mellow style, brass, marble and its welcoming feeling, Mornington is a great place to stay while in Stockholm.
The hotel has a restaurant that is divided in different spaces with different design approaches. In the morning breakfast is served between the areas that stretch all the way to the lobby to enjoy your meal with a cup of coffee, read a newspaper or even pick a book from one of the shelves.
The lobby is equipped with large sitting areas, comfortable couches but also a corner with Macbooks that are available for anyone to use. By the windows, old style leather seats with brass small tables make for a perfect spot for a quick coffee while waiting for a friend.

I stayed in one of the newly renovated suites with a separate bedroom and a living room. The bathroom as well was separated in two with two different entrances which makes sharing the room very comfortable. Furnished with Gubi designs, And Tradition lamps , a full wall of String solution shelves and a carefully curated selection of antiques, the room was much comfortable as sleek with its design.

The bedroom itself was separated by double doors from the living room, however both spaces have direct access to the big balcony with a great view. A small desk in the bedroom served as the perfect spot for the mornings when I needed a little bit of time to send emails and catch up with my work.

tour a brand new studio, just 20 mins from Stockholm


You mentioned that opening your own showroom has been a long time dream of yours, now that your dream is coming true, what does this finished space mean to you?

Dreams must take time and allow themselves to be worthy of the anticipation. This has been my dream to open a studio. A studio that is bursting with energy and creates interior innovation. That’s exactly what I want it to mean to others. You must allow dreams to take time, hurry slowly. I want my studio will be an incubator for what other creative dreams can be.


Besides housing your amazing past and forthcoming design pieces, what other purposes do you intend to use the studio for?

My previous answer covers this issue. If everything within my creative path was only about me, I would not leave seeds for others. That’s what I believe everything in life is about, giving further. I want to create a path for others to walk through.


Can you tell us a bit about the location and why you chose it?

The studio is located a bit outside Stockholm city in a harbor and marina, which is perfect. It is right next to the water with a large roof terrace and is the optimal place for creative activity and creative work. We are as far from a busy urban environment as can be yet only it takes 20 mins to Stockholm city centre. I think that is the future value, peaceful environment. We have fantastic natural light in the studio that we can rent it out for photo shoots and will offer even greater daylight studio in the spring and summer months. More about that later though!

Along with your own creations, will you be carrying any other selection of items?

Absolutely. My design complements the others, vice versa. A Swedish saying goes, alone is not strong. The best way to show your own design is to place it next to the others. I have already begun to choose brands that I believe will be a nice complement to my studio and to present for my interior decorating clients. I can only hope that others love the result as much as I do.
