With all due respect to Dorothy, there is a place like home. Since opening in 2012, the Stockholm hotel Ett Hem has boldly dissolved any hospitality/residential divide, compelling guests to kick up their heels in communal living and dining spaces. Its reputation, legendary among even the most particular travelers, is a testament to both owner Jeanette Mix and AD100 titan Ilse Crawford, whose interiors meld romance, whimsy, and comfort in balanced bliss. (The afternoon cake doesn’t hurt.) Now, the duo have reunited to complete the property’s expansion into two adjacent town houses. One quietly opened last year, offering 10 additional rooms. The other just debuted as three apartment-style accommodations for long-term stays, complete with a shared gym. “We have continued the story of Ett Hem in a natural and organic way,” says Mix. Furnishings range from an Isamu Noguchi light sculpture to a Svenskt Tenn desk. Notes Crawford, “Every detail is considered to celebrate daily rituals.” —Sam Cochran
