Stockholm, Sweden

Snow fell lightly outside as I looked out the window to the city outside.

The final stop on our Scandinavia trip, I was excited to experience Stockholm.

Days were spent wandering narrow streets in old neighborhoods with warm beverages in hand and having brunch with friends. A visit to a neighborhood distillery making small batch gin from herbs grown on site sent us searching for a way to bring it home.

Stockholm’s old town, Gamla Stan, seems to have come straight from a storybook with it’s colorful building and tight cobblestone streets.

Just outside the city center is Rosendals Tragard where one can expect to cozy up with fresh, warm food in a greenhouse among fresh flowers and plant life waiting for Spring.

Metro station murals are sprinkled throughout the city and are like a real life treasure hunt. Large sweeping, vines that grow up over your head and rainbows that stretch from one side of the station to the other provide a breath of fresh air and life in the underground spaces.

Good design is everywhere—even small businesses invest in well-made furniture, designer lighting, and making their space beautiful. The thoughtful aesthetic & details make this historical city a pleasure to explore and enjoy.
