Select Collection - Christmas dinner

A night full off surprises starting at our first secret destination - the hotel "ETT HEM"

Arriving to celebrate our Select Collection Christmas Party with all staff from all offices. Everyone arrived in a good mood and spirit to a white Stockholm

Everyone beautifully dressed...

Kenneth Hallström telling the story about ETT HEM
Ett Hem was a private residence built in 1910, for two people who loved art and beautiful things. They left their mark on this townhouse, situated in a peaceful, residential area of Stockholm. This Arts and Crafts building is a tranquil home away from home, steeped in the Scandinavian aesthetics of Carl Larsson and his wife Karin.

Transforming the house into a hotel has been a delicate process: its personality had to remain intact. Yet it also had to offer all the services required by modern travellers. The result is that Ett Hem is again filled with the best collection of furniture, Scandinavian antiques and design. Things that frame moments in life.

With twelve rooms, Ett Hem offers discerning guests comfortable interiors and bedrooms full of summery whiteness of light. Outdoors, the courtyard garden is a room as important as those inside. It’s a secret city wilderness that is the perfect place for summer breakfasts or winding down over a chilled bottle of wine.

Beautiful decorations just like at home...

After a glögg, Champagne and Christmas present we strolled throw the snow to our next secret destination...
