Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Staycation with Scandic [sponsored post]

This week my boyfriend and I spent the night between monday and tuesday at Hotel Malmen in Stockholm. You see,  I was offered a free night at any Scandic Hotel in Sweden, in return for writing about them and hosting a give away, and it sounded too tempting to resist!

We chose Malmen partly for the design and partly for the location. It's the best designed Scandic hotel that I know of, and of course that means a lot to me when deciding where to stay! And the location is perfect, on Medborgarplatsen right in the center of Södermalm in Stockholm, with all my favourite shops, restaurants, cafés and bars very close by.

Our room looked exactly like the one in the top photo here, with a nice black/grey/white colour scheme going on and a cool wallpapered feature wall. It's hard to see in the first photo, but you get a glimpse of it in the second pic. The third photo is from the restaurant.

The give away I was talking about is coming in a post later this week, but if you want to be sure you get to have your own staycation, you can book a room here, in any Scandic Hotel in Sweden, from just 295 skr/person and night! This low price is only available until November 30.

    I love the place. Wonder where I can get some of that killer wallpaper from? I live here in the USA. Do you think they will give up the name of the company who manufactures it? I went to there website, but hell I don't speak or read the language so I was screwed.

    Hej Emma,

    Jag bor i Holland och läser din jätteinsirerande blogg regelbundet, men har aldrig kommenterat något inlägg tidigare. Nu är det så att jag är på jakt efter ett nytt soffbord och gillar det runda på det 2a fotot. Har du en aning om designer eller varumärke?

    Tack på förhand och ha det så bra!

    Vänliga hälsningar från ett regnigt Holland! ida
