Hello and Happy Friday! I’m very excited about sharing with you an amazing place I just happened to stumble upon last weekend… It’s a bit funny because as I was walking with my friend and fiancé in the trendy, up-and-coming neighborhood of Hornstull, I caught a glimpse of an interesting restaurant on a side street. As usual, I immediately ran over to check it out, most likely without even telling them I was about to take a detour. Luckily, they are both pretty used to my “detours” at this point and we’re not even phased (thanks, guys)!
What I assumed was going to be a restaurant, turned out to be Roy & Son, a classic barber shop with a white penny tiled floors, warm lighting, and old school red barber shop chairs. But it didn’t stop there because next to the barber shop was a lovely, little florist shop called Landet Järna. It had the same white penny tiles and was adorned with wild flowers hanging from the ceiling and it was then when I realized that I’ve seen this darling florist before on Emmas Design Blogg. From there we made our last stop at the restaurant, Linje Tio, as it was tucked away, but visible, from both the barber shop and florist. We stepped inside and it felt as if we were stepping back in time.
Linje Tio, or Line Ten, reminded me of a mix between Grand Central Station in New York and the warm, outdoor Eurpoean bistros that I love so much. It turns out that this classic, yet urban, bar and restaurant drew inspiration from its location, which used to be a bustling hub and tram station for Stockholmers between 1922 to 1967. It also incorporates inspiration from Brooklyn, New York as well as southern European bistros. AKA – it is my dream restaurant, both for its classic charm and Scandinavian sophistication.
I love taking detours, especially when I come across something I’ve read about and wanted to visit. This “3 in 1” is known as Tjoget, and was created and designed by Yukiko Krigh, a Japanese expat and architect living in Stockholm. I absolutely love the idea of combining three ideas into one and even more so appreciate the neighborhood feel that goes along with it.
So next time you’re in Stockholm, why not stop for a little Swedish styling, pick up a bouquet of local wild flowers, and complete the night with a dinner date at Linje Tio? Just google Swedish men’s hairstyles if your not convinced.

Cozy entryway to Linje Tio – like walking down a narrow alley!
