Miss Clara – a new design hotel in Stockholm

The Nobis group, standing behind stylish hotels like Skeppsholmen, Nobis and Furillen, just opened a new hotel here in Stockholm called Miss Clara, and although I haven’t been there yet (spent the last week in Iceland, but more about that later) I must say it looks extremely promising from the press photos!
The 92-room hotel is housed in the former Ateneum girls’ school building, erected in 1910.


The building was designed by architects Hagström & Ekman and is considered one of Stockholm’s most exquisite Art Nouveau edifices. The old girls’ school has been transformed into an elegant and comfortable international business hotel by Wingårdhs, one of Sweden’s leading and most internationally renowned architecture firm, under the leadership of architect Gert Wingårdh.

When designing Miss Clara, Wingårdh’s architects drew inspiration from the building’s original Art Nouveau architecture, distinguished by its soft and graceful organic lines and use of solid natural materials. Characteristic traits in the original architecture have been interpreted into new contemporary expressions. The interiors feature many specially designed and crafted furniture pieces and installations in solid, superior quality natural materials of predominantly Swedish origin, such as limestone, oak, bentwood, and natural leather. The color scheme is orchestrated in sophisticated darker notes on the floor level, with white walls and ceilings that emphasize the openness of the rooms.

Ems Designblogg is all about Scandinavian style, soft minimalism and beautiful functionalism. The blog is Sweden's oldest interior design blog and has been up and running since 2005. I strive to fill it with a mix of inspirational and aspirational images from all over the world, while keeping true to my own voice and style, where transparency is key and creative criticism is highly valued. When I'm not blogging, I bake chocolate cakes for my kids, hang around Stockholm's cafés and drink way too many cappuccinos, do some occasional styling work, and try to fit in some inspiring travel adventures in between.
