A weekend in Stockholm, Sweden

Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and located on 14 islands at the south-central east coast at the mouth of Lake Malaren. Known for it's beauty and architectural abundance, it is also the largest and most populous city in Sweden. The majority of Stockholm residents work in the service industry, resulting in minimal heavy industry, making Stockholm among one of the world's cleanest metropolises. Open water and parks are a few of Stockholm's geographic characteristics that have many referring to it as, "The Venice of the North."

The Stockholm Royal Palace displays grand curb appeal.

Stockholm's  "Livgardet" serve and protect.

Stockholm StreetStyle struts street chic glamor!

A recent trend in restaurant design: Inject red for visual interest and energy.

A little color on a wintry day can go a long way.
