Cph Menu space by Norm Architects

Visiting Copenhagen is always a good idea especially when there is a new cool space to discover designed by all-time favourite Norm Architects. So if you’re planning a long weekend there, I’m inviting you to add the Menu space to your must-see list.

Inspiring, family homes to stay | COPENHAGEN

Denmark has such an incredible legacy when it comes to mid-century classic design with the likes of Hans J. Wegner, Arne Jacobsen, Georg Jensen to name a few, that it’s almost impossible not to find a beautiful, place to stay and here are two of my favourite inspiring and family-friendly places to stay. The Christian Ixth Residence  Located in Copenhagen’s old town, the Christian Ixth Residence is great for two adults, 2 children and a baby. It’s in the centre of town (Indre By as they say) and walking distance from all the shops and museums (except Louisiana which you must visit). It has gorgeous floorboards, lots of natural light and I think these large butterfly paintings by Hong Kong artist Simon Birch are stunning. The Steenbergsvej Residence This one is out of town in Valby but since Copenhagen is a small city, it doesn’t really matter if you’re not staying in the centre of town (Indre By). By tube, most journey will take you 8-12 min and 20-30 min to the airport and most …

Atelier September

Last time I came to Atelier September, it was still a shop…and a beautiful one with Danish antiques. It is now converted in a very inspiring and relaxing café and wine shop that you will love and it’s just around the corner of the Vipp flagship store. I loved the long, vintage communal tables and the large windows overlooking the street. Food was good, simple and tasty and apparently their yogurt & granola is to die for. I was in a rush to set up our pop-up store so I had egg and toasts but I will go back this week to watch Danish life goes by (I love spending time in little cafés when I travel). I also loved their free standing stainless-steel kitchen which looked beautiful on the Scandinavian floorboards. I’m not sure of the brand but Bultaup has a similar one. The place is filled with natural lights and has some great magazines like Kinfolk and cooking books for sale.   Since it’s now my 4th visit to Copenhagen, you can read my …

Vipp’s Award- Winning Kitchen 2014 – Elle Decoration International Design Award

Since I started working on the renovation plans of our London home, I’ve always figured out that our kitchen would be white like the rest of our home until I was invited by VIPP last Christmas to participate to a styling blogger competition in their flagship store in Copenhagen and saw their black kitchen designed in-house by Morten Bo Jensen, Head of Design at Vipp. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything so beautiful and striking… Seeing it on display in their beautiful flagship store (which has polished concrete floors – another thing I would love in our new kitchen), has completely opened up my mind and I see now a black kitchen in our family home is now well within the realms of possibility. Since then, my Kitchen board on Pinterest, has been filling up with gorgeous and inspiring black kitchens. This week, the VIPP kitchen has won the Elle Decoration International Design Award for best kitchen 2014 which is amazing and well-deserved so massive congratulations to the whole team, to this amazing brand which …
