Thank you all so much for the warm hearted and generous words of congratulations about the Bright.Bazaar book – your support and encouraging comments were much appreciated as I head into this daunting (but ever so exciting) new chapter. Having been lucky enough to travel to Cologne/Dusseldorf, Paris and Stockholm during January, I’m relishing the opportunity to spend this weekend at home; my fiancé and I will be attempting to make croissants and pain au chocolat from scratch for the very first time (we’re gonna need all the luck we can get!). Before I head off to kick up my feet I wanted to share these snaps of the Scandic Grand Central Hotel in Stockholm where I stayed on my recent visit. The hotel is located in a building that dates back to 1885 and while the lobby offers an indulgent mix of rich colour, the corridors remain monochromatic with typographical quotes adorning occasional walls – a feature that runs through to the artwork in the rooms themselves. As well a the lobby, I loved the cosy, industrial meets Moroccan chic bar area; those floor tiles are heavenly and I couldn’t resist a cheeky Instagram shot of them during my stay! Talking of Instagram shots, it was so fun to hang out with both new and old blogging friends after my keynote speech, like Jeanette, Arianna and Ilaria, amongst many others. The Scandic Grand Central Hotel Stockholm was one of the best hotels I’ve stayed in for a long time; do you have any great hotels to recommend, friends?
