Copenhagen

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…

Jacob's 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!

Cool bike

Everywhere you looked there was a cool bike or cafe or clothes shop

Vintage letters

Vintage lamps

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!
