I've been meaning to post about Stockholm since we got back, but somehow the lazy day-to-day of the summer holidays has meant that I've spent a lot of time doing...not a lot. An ideal summer past-time I think. And given the boys still have two weeks left before school starts I feel there will be more lazy days ahead. So before I completely forget here's a few things I discovered while in Stockholm...
A fab new equestrian magazine The Horse Rider's Journal. Hop over here for a peek at some of the wonderful images by Ditte Isager.

Ravel gloves - possibly the most beautiful leather gloves ever.

Modern, simple and chic clothes and accessories from Hope.

These wonderful Helena Rohner 'Munio' bowls found at Illums Bolighus.

Monocle's Scent One - cedary and woody, and reminiscent of my Grandfather's art studio.

Part coffee shop, part office co-op, Coffice has really good coffee and a great vibe.

ABICI's Pantone window displays - there were similar ones with red and blue bikes too.

A couple of other 'finds' were Cajsa Warg, a yummy gourmet market/deli; Fotografiska museum of contemporary photography; Nytorget Urban Deli a great place for lunch or dinner; and if like us you have a couple of kids who are into all things money a trip to the Royal Coin Cabinet is highly recommended. Dating back to the 1500s this museum is huge with a really impressive collection of all things currency related, along with a great modern art exhibition space.
I hope all is well in your neck of the woods - thanks for stopping by.

Images from Malling, RavelIllums Bolighus, Hope, MonocleHay House, and me.


  1. Thanks for letting me live vicariously through these lovely last few posts!
    So inspiring. I'm sure it's lovely to be home again, but wow, what a fantastic trip you've had. xx

  2. Ooh, that perfume sounds nice! I love cedar. L'Occitane has this really lovely Cedar EDP, but I'm not sure whether to buy it – I already have an absurd amount of perfumes!

    All is well here! The snow was brief but DEFINITELY memorable :)

    Re. that little cardboard box, I'm not sure when I'll next be in P'ram so you may have to get Dad to rendevous with Rob. I may have to remind Dad where the box is...
