10 Things I Learned & Loved In Stockholm


1. Revisiting some of the beautiful (and colourful!) buildings that I first saw on my first trip to Stockholm last year.
2. Finding a super fun new and nautical stripy jumper – and wearing it straight away, of course!
3. Loved the type used for Mobler’s shop sign in the Sodermalm.
4. Having a long brunch at Urban Deli was an ideal way to kick off Saturday. That tomato salad was so freakin’ good…
5. …as was the mozzarella…
6. …and the bread! Great food makes a city break, don’t you think?
7. Spotting colourful buildings I hadn’t seen on my previous visits to the city made me very happy.
8. The gorgeous white-washed wooden floors of our Air BnB apartment were so easy on the eye.
9. Heading out with friends (including one of the homeowners from my book!) on Saturday night for drinks.
10. The bedroom decor of Mia Blanche’s colourful Air BnB apartment couldn’t be more Bright.Bazaar if it tried!

      @Jocelyn – It’s funny you should mention that because I said to my fiancé how disappointed I was that we didn’t see any whippets over the weekend (despite seeing loads of pooches!). Hugs to you and your handsome boys! x

    I love Stockholm, especially the light, which is so different right? I can’t believe it has been 1 year since I last visited. Thanks for taking me back through your pretty pictures, Will!

    I have listed the brightest happiest color vintage paint by number of Stockholm on ebay, Will. The gent in the painting looks a little like you 🙂 Go to seller nordic_french_style to take a look. P.S. I received for Christmas a note from my kids that I will be receiving your book in April, Can’t wait for a new spring read!
