I am a huge fan of the Danes and all the Nordic countries. For years I have admired their sense of style. I could easily move to almost any part of Europe especially one of the Nordic countries and not think twice. Life is too short to think anything has to be permanent. Maybe it is my wishful thinking. The Danish aesthetic is one the main reasons I wanted to explore Copenhagen. I did just that with one of my best gal pals, Donna (the one that makes me laugh like no other:) We hit the streets blazing!
Illums Bolighus is the first stop! Every Danish designer and more under one roof will sweep you off your feet. It is a place to escape and find inspiration. Give yourself ample time to wander the floors. There is so much to grab your attention. Illums Bolighus is located in the heart of Copenhagen, delivering you a shopping experience that you will not forget!
The Coffee Collective has a vibe that will keep you hanging out. The coffee is creamy, smooth, and served with a smile! I love the warm moody tones of the space created through the use the dark wood, soft lighting, Nordic blue walls, and lit candles. A perfect place to take a break!
Night At The Museum
The Ny Carlesberg Glyptotek is a highlight. An absolute stunning art museum housing an impressive collection of ancient and modern art in a beautiful architectural building. In the middle of the four winged museum is a Winter Garden that creates an oasis with overflowing tropical plants. It is an unexpected gem. On this particular evening was a special one night performance by Danish Designer, Henrik Vibskov. “Please analyze, volumize, moisturize me” was a human installation that was part of Copenhagen’s Light Festival. A spectacular performance that gave us the opportunity to wonder the museum. It was a night at the museum indeed!
Vinbodegaen is a charming wine bar offering an extensive selection of wines by the glass listed on a chalk board. It is a locals place to linger and sip in a traditional cafe setting.
Tight serves up local Danish cuisine in a wonderful old charming space with exposed stone walls, wooden beams, and candle lit tables. One might walk by this restaurant do to its casual entrance. Lovely meal, lovely service, and word of advice, always carry a bit of the local currency so you can tip!
