This is possibly the most stylish mall I’ve ever stepped into. The relatively small shopping mall is well-decorated from ceiling to floor, corner to corner and is simply a visual delight.
The design direction of the mall seems to be aligned with the feeling of being out at the park. Thus, you’ll find a ton of flowers, plants, greenery and even caged bird dummies, on top of the supposed outdoor street lamps, directional signs and public benches that you always find at the park.
While it may seem random with all the various kinds of materials and furniture used for the interior design of the mall, I must say that they all look pretty damn good together. Also, the lighting throughout the mall makes the whole place feels cozy with its slightly dimmed and soft hues.
Despite its location in the heart of Stockholm’s central business district, the mall is quiet and a pleasure to hang out in. The reason being that Mood Stockholm is carefully curated with shops that are catered specifically to fashion and design-conscious individuals, so you’ll never find a McDonald’s, chained supermarket or even an H&M (they are basically everywhere in Sweden) in here. Perhaps, that’s why it would be rare that family with kids and all that crowd would be attracted here.
And no, this is not the place for luxury high-end brands either, but what you will find is a pool of mostly stylish European/Scandinavian fashion labels such as the popular Danish label Samsøe & Samsøe and Sweden’s homegrown label Valerie.
For those that are into pretty things, there are also stores like Posh Living and Yellow Korner. Heck, even if you don’t intend to buy anything, drinking and dining in Mood Stockholm is also a lot of fun because the eateries look so pretty!One of the other very important (in my opinion) factor of this mall is that they have free toilets (at least for now)! Considering how rare it is to get free toilets in many parts of Europe, I think it is
One of the other very important (in my opinion) factor of this mall is that they have free toilets (at least for now)! Considering how rare it is to find free toilets in many parts of Europe, I think it is a luxury that Mood Stockholm has free toilets that are beautifully designed.
One of them is even spacious enough and complete with a dressing room, dressing table with hair dryers, sofas, and even a separate kid’s cubicle that’s also beautifully designed.
