A couple of weeks ago I did attend the annual design and interior evet 3 Days Of Design in Copenhagen. I’m sure that you’ve already seen some of the pictures that I’ve been sharing on both my Instagram account and my stories. During the 3 Days Of Design I finally got a chance to stay at Brøchner Hotels’s newly opened and renovated Hotel Danmark. I felt a warm welcoming and was so glad to reconize the same sweet staff that I know from my favorite SP34 which also belongs to Brøchner Hotel’s.
The stylish boutique hotel offers several different beyond beautiful rooms which makes it so exciting to see which room that you’re going to stay in every time that you’re staying at the hotel. The atmosphere is very warm and cozy even that the hotel has a quite minimalistic style. All the rooms is decorated with carefully chosen design interior, stylish solutions and extravagant features as you can see on the picture above left. The blankets and pillow are from the Danish brand Aiayu.
Image above left is from their gorgeous and cozy lobby where I loved to sit working and did enjoy their relaxing signature ‘Wine Hour’ from 5 – 6pm.
The with hallway inspired by the Danish Thorvaldsens Museum and it’s just stunning with the strong colours, beautiful tiles and changing light during the day (picture below left). I do always prefere to stay at design hotels in which I can identify with my own aesthetic and minimalistic style because it makes me feel very comfortable.
I just felt in love with their small charming and adorable backyard with view to the typical Danish archicture from the 19th century, plants climbing on the walls and colourful furnitures from the French brand Fermob. Such lovely experience and I just can’t wait to return to this aestheticly beautiful hote.
On June 2nd I had the great pleasure to attend the Design Talk with the Founder of Frama, Niels S. Christophersen and the talk was delivered at the Frama Studio Apartmet on Østerbro, Copenhagen. The space is the residential home of Niels S. Christophersen and it’s only open for public viewing every year during the 3 Days Of Design in Copenhagen. The studio apartment was recently renovated, and it’s bulit upon the creative direction; When Space Defines Context. I found it very exciting and inspiring to hear more about the background for the architecture, design and decoration behind this beautiful place. It was the very first time that I did visit the Frama Studio Apart and I had the feeling of a warm, calm and cozy atmospherein this unique home. I was meeting with raw wallls, carefuly choosen historical design objects and design furnitures from both Frama and other brands. The prototype of the signature Frama kitchen is featured in this beautiful home.
Frama Studio Store is located in old St. Pauls Apotek in the historic and protected neightboorhood of Nyboder, Fredericiagade 57, Copenhagen K.
February 3th – 9th I had the great pleasure to stay at and photograph the beautiful design hotel Miss Clara in the heart of the city for the second time. The hotel is one of Stockholm’s most treasured Art Nouveau buildings in the heart of the city. The famous architect Gert Wingårdh’s has been transformed the originally built girl’s school Ateneum into a unique hotel where the Art Nouveau history has been carefully combined with timeless scandinavian design. I felt so comfortable staying at this hotel that has a a very cozy atmosphere. I just can’t wait to visit next year again for the Stockholm Design Week.
August 16th-21th I had the pleasure to visit and photograph the cool boutique hotel The Waterhose At South Bund in Shanghai, China which is part of the Unlisted Collection. Local architects Neri & Nu transformed a 1930s factory in the river docks into an industrial-glam boutique pad, fusing the framework (steel supports, concrete walls) with design classics and high-tech gizmos. Each of the 19 bright rooms has a slightly different layout. I also love their gorgerous restaurant Table NO. 1 where they ‘re serving world influeced modern European food in a casual and contemporary setting. The hotel is a member of Design Hotels.
August 9th-13th I had the pleasure to visit and photograph the beautiful boutique hotel The Opposite House in Beijing, China which is a part of the Swire Hotels. The hotel is designed by the Japanese architect Kengo Kuma and located in the fancy quarter Sanlitun in Beijing. The slate and natural timbers used in the airy studios, suites and penthouse give it the fee of urban tranquil retreat.
