I’ve been lucky to stay at the beyond beautiful Nobis Hotel Copenhagen several times. Everytime I’ve been staying in a new gorgeous room since none of the rooms are identical which makes it even more exciting to visit the hotel. I’m always feeling cozy and comfortable at this hotel with such hearty and helpful staff meeting in the reception. I love how the hotel has been choosing so much beautiful design furnitures which brings so much characters to the place.
The grand 75-room Nobis Hotel Copenhagen is housed in an historic 5,400-square-meter landmark building that originally served the Royal Danish Conservatory of Music. Bringing the Nobis magic to the mindst of the Danish capital, the hotel is architect Gert Wingårdh’s “updated take on Le Corbusier. Danish classicism, which this building is a fine example of, is something special-more sophisticated, more stripped down than in Sweden”, he says. The historic landmark building on Niels Brocks Gade has been transformed into a cutting-edge contemporary luxury hotel-one where, like its Stockholm predecessor, food plays a central role. The restaurant which takes liberty with design styles from the 20th-century, borrows from the best of Nordic culinary traditions and served up modern seasonal cuisine. At Nobis Hotel Copenhagen, modernism meets classism and it’s all lusciously augmented by such embracing amenities as a gym, a sauna with cooling pool and ham, a bar, and a lounge area that, taken together, serve as an attractive new locus for Copenhagen’s downtown scene.

February 23th-25th I was invited to visit and photograph the Vipp Loft in Copenhagen. Vipp Loft is located in the same building as the company’s Copenhagen headquarter; an old printing factory in the industrial area of Islands Brygge.
The Danish design company Vipp employed Studio David Thulstrup to create “a multi -functional and holistic home environment” beneath the original oak rafters of the factory’s loft area on 400m2.
The space is large enough to accommodate a mozzanine containing a study and library which are connected by a bridge to a dark, secluded bedroom. The open-plan living area i arranged around a freestand Vipp kitchen. Vintage furniture and diverse artworks create the feel of a “mini museum of contemporary art and design”.
Vipp was founded more than 75 years ago by Holger Nielsen, who developed the first bin for his wife’s hair salon. The pedal bin is now in MoMA’s permanent collection and the company is run by Holger’s daughter Jette Egelund, along with her two children Kasper and Sofie. It has 15 employes.
I had a very lovely time spending the weekend in this stunning Vipp Loft. It’s obvious that every little detail, materials and all the design interiors have been carefully chosen for this space with such a cool yet cozy atmosphere.

October 25th-27th I felt lucky to visit and photography the iconicl Hôtel Vernet in Paris. The hotel is located in the 8th arrondissement close to Arc de Triomphe, Avenue George V., Grand Palais and Chailot museums. The once traditional Hôtel Vernet has been transformed by Paris based architect Francois Champsaur into a sleek new 50-room boutique hotel. Housed in a post Hausmann building that dates from 1917, the exterior is the embodiment of Parisian charm, which complements the fresh modernity that lies within. I really felt at home met by the kind and helpsome staff in the reception. The hotel has a comfortable lounge bar, an excellent modern restaurant and the generously sized bedrooms mix natural wood, colouful throws and jazzy bathrooms. The beautiful furnitured bedroom really made me feel for spending a relaxing time in this gorgeous hotel. All design interior has obviously been carefully choosen for this gorgeopus hotel. The spectacular restaurant has a breathtaking glass dome designed by civil engineerGustave Eiffel a century ago.
