Military Style

Me and Lisen got a guided tour of the stables at K1 Livgardet in central Stockholm (that’s the military stables of the royal mounted guard). A beautiful place full of history and old stories, and ghosts probably.
When refurbishing the stables they’ve taken inspiration from many great stables in Sweden, such as Strömsholm, to make it a fully functioning modern stable but still with a lot of heritage and old parts very much part of it. Thank you Livgardet – we loved it!
