As I mentioned in my previous luxury apartment eye candy post, I start missing Sweden twice a year. In the winter, I’d love to be there to enjoy all four Advent Sundays with glogg, gingerbread cookies and saffron buns, St. Lucia (on December 13th) with all the lights and traditional processions, and Christmas, which in Sweden is celebrated on the 24th with lots of food, gifts and the traditional Disney-medley on TV at 3 pm. And in the summer, to walk around Stockholm just enjoying the city and light nights, or spend the day on a beach on Gotland.
We still have not realized our dream of owning our own place in Stockholm, but I keep browsing listings, hoping that something perfect will come our way. And it did! Unfortunately, it’s a bit out of our price range, but check out the pictures!
It is a converted movie theatre designed by architect Björn Hedvall (who did a lot of buildings in Stockholm), and it was first opened in 1931. It has been converted to a huge, Moroccan-inspired one bedroom “riad” with a sort of “interior garden” in the middle of everything. It also has a walk-in-closet and a conservatory. And, to top it all off, it is right, smack in the middle of Stockholm, you can walk everywhere – to parks, restaurants, shops, everything.
