To celebrate Doug’s recent Birthday, we hopped on a plane and went to Copenhagen – the epicentre of contemporary design. A bit anoraky, I know, but still, very romantic and fun!
We arrived safely at our apartment…
What a place! Found through the alternative, global, rental community Airbnb…for accommodation all over the world, without chintz – really wonderful…
We went on to have a two day feast/orgy of contemporary design and culture…goodness!
Everywhere you looked there was a cool bike or cafe or clothes shop
And don’t talk to me about vintage contemporary antique shops…you could hardly move for them!
We did throw in some nice meals
…and a beach trip too…the beach trip was on a visist to the amazing Modernist Art Museum by the sea Arken
It lies like a great sculpture overlooking Køge Bay. The museum’s architecture interplays with its maritime surroundings and is motivated by the lines of the landscape.
We saw a stunning exhinition of Contemporary Romanian art and loved the curated show about community today, of which the highlight for me had to be the ‘Social Mobility Staircase’ – above – loved it – hilarious!!
Modern Art at it’s best…
Will show and tell more about our trip during the week…still recovering to be honest!
