An inspirational weekend in Copenhagen

    Copenhagen is definitely one of my favourite cities for inspiration.
    The vibe, the people, the design and the city itself is just something special.
    I recently spent a weekend there with my family.
    I have a few pitstops, I always vist. Below I share a few of them.

    I love to stay the night, even though the trains run frequently to Sweden.
    A weekend at this hotel is definitely on my list for Xmas.
    Unbeatable to wake up and smell the flowers and coffee in a new city.
    I love to walk by Torvehallerne  in Norreport
    Torvehallerne is a modern marketplace mixed with restaurants, food stalls and other specialty shops.

    I like to stroll around and people-watch and get a bit of danish bike-envy, before I hit one of these favourite spots for breakfast or brunch. Sonny, Mad & KaffeGranola , The Corner Cafe or Atelier September

    The must-order item for brunch

    Love the vintage soap dispensers, at Granola.


    After brunch I like to seek some inspiration and check out the interior stores Stilleben and HAY, what’s new at  Illum and The Apartment etc

    I love the side streets and smaller boutiques of Copenhagen. Elmegade, Istedgade, Studiestraede and Jaegersborgsgade for instance.

    Some of my favourite Danish designers include . Stine Goya, Ganni, Baum und Pferdgarden, Wood Wood, Saks Potts, Malene Birger, Lovechild 1979 and Mark Tan.
    I get a lot of inspiration at Holly Goligthly, and usually check out the vintage stores Times up, Wasteland and a well stocked Red Cross Thrift store.

    I usually pop in at ARKET. They have a great selection of well tailored fashion at great prices.
    Personally, I buy their small soft bags, mesh or nylon, on repeat for my kit and personal toiletries.

    Beau Marché has to be visited during a Copenhagen stay  at some point. Their selection of interiors in their shop is exquisite and their cosy little café on the backyard is also great.

    At night I usually like to hang out in Vesterbro or somewhere around the Meatpacking District, Kødbyen, for drinks.

    Pate Pate is one of my all time favourites. The vibe here is always great! Next time I have to check out the hip Taco place Hija de Sanchez according to the line.

    We dined at an asian restaurant on Verndamsvej this time. Verndamsvej is another favourite street with small shops like Playtype and Dora and the cutest little hotel with only one room, Central Hotel.
    I Love the Parisian vibe here.

    If you are not inspired enough after a visit to the danish capital, you can always make a stop at Louisiana museum in Humlebaek. A must-visit if you have not yet been there.
