the first guestroom at Villa Dahlia is ready • Hotel Designs


The new chic boutique hotel on the Stockholm block, Villa Dahlia, has shared the beginnings of its design journey, which brings to mind Milan in the 20s and 30s, and plans to be an evocative international meeting place for both hotel guests and local residents. The first room completed, a deluxe room, sparks a preview of the casual elegance, carefully selected colour and material choices for a first-class sleeping experience. Architect Per Öberg has been given the assignment to complete Villa Dahlia– the Malmström/Cappelen family’s third hotel in Stockholm.

“We are delighted to present Villa Dahlia’s first room and to unveil the hotel’s name, inspired by Villa Dagmar, our grandparents’ Karl and Dagmar Bergstens’ home in Båstad, which my siblings and I often visited,” said Anna Cappelen, Partner in Hotel Diplomat, Villa Dagmar and Villa Dahlia. “The delightful scents of the flower garden lingered in the late summers, making dahlias a symbol for family, love and beautiful moments to remember. Therefore, it became the natural choice of name for our third hotel.”

“We have an intense period ahead of us completing Villa Dahlia and we look forward to spring when we will open for bookings,” added Sune M. Malmström, Partner and Principal Project Manager of Villa Dahlia. “Our vision is to become a new retreat and dedicated destination for both hotel guests and tourists, as well as residents in the neighbourhood and Stockholm locals.”

The showcase guestroom gives a sense of the hotel’s overall interior and atmosphere creation, where sustainability and craftsmanship are integrated into all choices. The interior finishes and fittings come from smaller suppliers to ensure high quality with curated design choices by mother and daughter, Anna and Pauline Cappelen, resulting in an atmosphere and interior reminiscent of a a cosy Italian villa.
