Kungsholmen - Söder






Yesterday we went to Kungsholmen and had a wander round. When I was growing up the neighbourhood was nothing special, a place were only pensioners lived. But in the past few years it has had an influx of cool shops and cafés and I almost don't recognise it now. The first two pictures are from De Fyra's shop and showroom where I couldn't resist buying a pretty little plate the perfect size for a kanelbulle. I then continued on to Söder which has been hip for the last 15 years or so for some more fika and some sushi in the evening. I'm going home soon so I'm squeezing in as many fikas I can before it's too late :) Have a great weekend everyone!

  4. I love the second photo and the bottom one. It sounds like a great walk I take these walks to photograph, too. It is fun

  5. where was the third photo taken? the tiles resemble our portuguese tiles so much... i'm doubting if they're not?

    i had such a great time on a spring vacation to stockholm. :)

  7. zahai: you can get frozen kanelbullar at ikea in the foodshop if you're craving them, they're not perfect but they're good enough... I really must make sure I bake my own this winter!

    kerry hawkins: photo walks are so good for you, aren't they?

    sushi lover: the third pic was taken at café frankfurt in kungsholmen (they do really good sandwiches) and yes the tiles are lovely, if I could afford to I'd get tiles like that for our kitchen floor...

    mila: thank you very much, so is yours :)

  8. Du tar så himla fina bilder, om jag bodde i utriket så skulle jag känna att jag bara måste åka till Sverige och Stockholm. Har verkligen blivit hemmablind här...

  9. I Stockholm finns sååå många coola ställen. Massor med nytt varje gång man åker dit för att hälsa på. Nästan lite stressande ibland men väldigt kul.
