Ett Hem

<< Back to Robb Report, December 2012

After studying hotel management in Switzerland, Jeanette Mix returned to her hometown of Stockholm, Sweden, intent on opening a boutique hotel. In 2007, she and her husband acquired an early-20th-century mansion in the residential neighborhood of Östermalm and—with the help of London-based interior designer Ilse Crawford of Studioilse—transformed it into a 12-room retreat brimming with homemade charms.

Opened in May, the 12-room Ett Hem, which means "a home" in Swedish, spreads over five floors with a reception area, a lounge, a library, and an eat-in, farmhouse-style kitchen. Artworks from the Mixes’ private collection hang in the guest rooms, alongside such accents as sheepskin throws from the Got­land province, reindeer-hide-covered chairs, Georg Jensen candlesticks designed by Crawford, and custom brass cocktail cabinets.

Meals are served family-style in Ett Hem’s kitchen, private garden, or heated conservatory, but guests can help themselves anytime to a bottle of wine and snacks from the fridge. Visitors are also free to play the hotel’s grand piano, work out in the gym, enjoy a sauna, or take off on bicycles to explore the leafy surroundings.
