“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.”
–Mark Twain

On the street, Elmegade in Nørrebro.
On the street, Rantzausgade in Nørrebro.
We stayed in the neighborhood of Nørrebro and we completely fell in love with it. This street, Jægersborggade in particular. Everything was stunning. Inspiration was abundant. So many local artisans making beautiful things. The girls at Ladyfingers were super on point and Tricotage had the best street display I've ever seen.
Best coffee. 
Kadeau in Christianhavn.  It was an incredible and delightful adventure into Nordic cuisine. If you go to Copenhagen and have some dollars to spare, I highly recommend this joint. 
Christiania. This place was totally crazy but equally full of inspiration. 
The random tile work had me scheming.
Copenhagen was a mixed bag. I'm at a loss for the correct words to describe it but it was essentially like the cool kids club everywhere. Take the coolest most design savvy cities in the states and then multiply the cool factors by about a million and then you get everywhere in Copenhagen. Inspiration was abundant here but Danish culture felt quite hard to break into. The city was absolutely incredible but I found the people rather cold. Cold but stylish as hell. 

Things worth noticing:
  • bikes bikes bikes (oh, and no one locks them. amazing)
  • it was like the cool jacket show.  the best jackets you've ever seen.
  • acne
  • white converse high tops (thinking of you jessie c)
  • carhartt
  • tights and shorts 
  • knee high's 
  • norse projects
  • lots of black/ all black
