Miss Clara and B&O play

November 25, 2017


Expenses and hotel accommodation was provided by B&O play.

I just came back from my Copenhagen/Stockholm short 3 days trip ( you can read more about the Copenhagen part here and here), if are not following me on Instagram, you missed on some amazing stories, from incredible sunrises in Copenhagen, to the coolest party in Stockholm ( and the reason I travelled there). However, I have been trying to update my twitter with photos from my stories, if you completely missed out, you can find some of them (not all however) here

We left Copenhagen on Thursday morning,to land in Stockholm, and a short tesla taxi ride later, arrived at Miss Clara hotel. It was my first time staying at Miss Clara, something that has been on my wishlist for a while now. The design of the boutique Nobis hotel is so beautiful, I was only sorry I was only to stay there for a night. A few hours later, we arrived at Alma ( a five-story structure with a mindful balance of work and social spaces ) for one of the coolest dinner parties, hosted by B&O play and Bang Olufsen. In company of friends and colleagues, we were presented with the new B&O play M3 speaker ( I talked about it a few days ago in the post Cecile Mantz for B&O play ), a truly amazing speaker, that packs as powerful design as it sounds.  

The restaurant, overseen by chefs Martin Brag and Leo Frodell serves meals exclusively for members and their guests, and on Thursday night we were treated with an amazing menu. At the end we were also surprised to find out we were going to be taking home with us an M3, that I put immediately to use in my room at Miss Clara. I travelled to Stockholm with my 

B&O play 

H9 headphones, but I love  having sound coming from a speaker in my room, I unpacked the M3 and made myself truly at home until the next day before checking out.

You can see some photos today of the room and the M3 and H9, I liked either having the M3 beside the bed or on the big windowsill where I spend quite some time sitting on the cushion with a blanket and my headphones before the party, working on my Macbook with some tea on the side. Don’t travel with headphones, but if you can, take a speaker with you as well! 

Oh, did I mention Miss Clara bathrooms are equipped with Byredo toiletries?

Le Labo in Copenhagen

November 23, 2017


I am already in Stockholm today( do check my instagram stories for my whereabouts, plus the most amazing sunrise this morning e fr) , but I wanted to share some of the photos I took yesterday while out shopping at the new Le Labo perfume boutique, that opened in Copenhagen just a few days ago. If you don’t know about Le Labo, you are missing out in one of the best fragrances in my opinion, Santal 33. The niche perfumes will always be freshly blended for you on site from the expert stuff, the bottle will read your name and location of the store it was created, and depending on the style, you can even have it engraved. The numbers next to the name of every fine fragrance signify the number of ingredients, my favorite Santal 33 is blended with exactly 33 unique parts. Recently they added to their perfumes and candles a whole range of face and body care and mens grooming line, make sure to try the Hinoki variant, it is one of my favorites for shower gel or shower oil. Do try them if you have the opportunity, and if you are in Copenhagen or travelling there soon, you can visit the new Le Labo boutique at Store Strandstræde.

Today’s office from Skt. Petri

November 22, 2017


As I mentioned on my post Weekend Bliss a couple of days ago, I am spending a few days in Copenhagen then I am off to Stockholm for a dinner hosted by Bang Olufsen. I always love visiting Copenhagen but it is extra nice this time of year due to Christmas decorations. I am staying at Skt. Petri hotel , cleverly situated in the middle of the city right next to the Nørreport stop of the Metro, easily accessible and with amazing views of Copenhagen from its rooms. Mine specifically has panoramic view and a balcony, a stunning sight that I can see right from my bed. It is no wonder I decided to instead use this spot as my office for today, even though the rest of the room is quite beautiful as well, filled with great details such as the Snoopy Modern Table Lamp by Flos, or blue Planter velvet arm chairs by Knoll. There are marble details on the windowsills that are big enough to sit and enjoy a coffee and the great view ( see last photo).

If you are staying at the hotel, I heartily recommend eating at the newly opened P-Eatery , the hotels restaurant. Yesterday night I enjoyed an amazing 3 course dinner hosted by Allan from Bungalow5 in the P-Eatery, a special menu created by Allan together with executive chef Patryk Stafin. The menu will be available until the end of January, take a peak here!

Hotel Danmark

June 18, 2017


A few days ago I posted my highlights from 3 Days of Design ( Part 1 and Part 2 ) , but what I haven’t yet shared other than sneak peeks was the place I called home for these couple of design days in Copenhagen. I usually stay at SP34 while in town but this time around Brøchner Hotels happened to open the doors to its new luxury boutique Hotel Danmark that coincided with our stay.  I really wanted to experience the brand new hotel even though it wasn’t yet officially opened so I booked a stay, but I didn’t get to shoot all the spaces for this post that I wanted to (the rooftop terrace and breakfast area were not finished yet for example), which means next time I am in town I could be stopping again for those extra photos. For today however I am glad to share the room that I stayed in and some speak peeks from around the hotel, so scroll down for never before seen photos of the rooms from my perspective ;)

One of the first thing I noticed when I entered my room were the big windows that offer an amazing view of Copenhagen (Tivoli is a few meters away as well) right in front of me. All rooms regardless of size offer the same views, for me light and big windows is a winning point for any hotel room, but also something I value in my own apartment as well ( my new place in Oslo has similar windows and I can’t wait to move in first of July!).  The windowsills are also big enough that when I needed to work I could set up a working spot on any of them and enjoy the view while emailing or editing photos (one of the sneak peeks while I was there was Todays office in Copenhagen where I showed the spot I was working on that day). However the double superior room also offers a very comfortable couch and side tables, a solution I used a lot to work from. 

My bed was comfortable ( to my opinion and liking) with Aiayu  details standing out for a luxurious feel. From the Hollie bedspread to the Heather pillows ( not just in the bedroom but also in the living room and lobby of the hotel), the brass and marble details and designer furniture,  Hotel Danmark offers a unique experience that is very connected to Danish design today.

Generally the hotel was not quite finished at the time of my visit, so there were some details that I expect will be fixed by the time it is officially up and running. I will not dedicate time into listing them, however one the things I would like to see fixed would be the bathrooms that did not feel completely renovated. The rest of the hotel has gone into extensive full renovation and it would be a shame for the bathrooms not to receive the same attention as well. 

When it comes to the lobby there are two spaces that the now famous and much loved wine hour can be enjoyed , while guests are welcomed to sit outside as well but also on the rooftop terrace too. 

Overall and with the exception of a few hiccups that I am sure will be resolved within a few weeks after official opening,  I enjoyed my stay at Hotel Danmark, the rooms were big and beautiful while the stuff was as always very accommodating. If I have any advice is bring a sleep mask, the curtains that are a beautiful cream color are not shielding against the morning light.

Before I wrap up this post, probably I will get this question a lot so this is the perfect time to answer. Do I prefer the new Hotel Danmark or the old and favorite SP34? Both hotels are unique in their design, both luxurious and in a great location but ultimately I find SP34 design more to my style. The fact that it is closer to Metro station is also a plus but the winning lobby and designer bathrooms as SP34 will always win me over.
