WIN yourself a weekend for two and get your style hands on a rather snazzy number from Camilla Wellton – just drop us a few of your favorite insider tips.
A big congratulations to Laura Andrea Orlando for tip about Verdens Mindste Kaffebar! It was a winner!
We had so many fab hints and tips that we sent them off to the best judges we could think of, the true locals at White Line Hotels Edit Avenue Hotel. Laura’s going to get a weekend away at the Avenue and Pollish & Pollish XXS lamp from our partners at Design By Us.
Keep your eyes open for our next contest, and in the meantime, start making your mental notes for you next trip to Copenhagen — you won’t get better tips than these:
Copenhagen is a delight to write about and offers so much more than one can possibly cram into on a weekend city break! Also, am I really the only one who can’t seem to get enough of all things Nordic? Fortunately I also have a lovely Danish acquaintance, who as an expat, remains very strongly bound to her Copenhagen roots. Her insider knowledge is overwhelming and as she rattled off a list of cultural and culinary delights for me to consider in that fascinating and very endearing Danish clipped tone of hers, I was lost not only in that I couldn’t keep up taking notes as she spoke, but also for sheer choice. How on earth can you decide between “the most superb gourmet restaurant”, “the amazing Louisiana Museum”, “The Chair“ (Wishbone, Carl Hansen) not to mention “the whole Design legacy “ or “the longest sandy coastline in Europe with the most charming seaside harbor houses” and “the beers, of course…” (Carlsberg and Tubourg)? I know there’s more but I decided to focus on the first item that she mentioned, Noma, as it was delivered with such enthusiasm that I even chose it in favour of The Chair (shhh, don’t tell him indoors). Well I love a good meal and I was instantly captivated by the restaurant’s beautifully simple interiors.

Sometimes we all need a little help justifying our indulgences, don’t we? So, what’s even better than bringing a shopping bag through your front door, unwrapping the coveted object it contains, and knowing that it’s yours-all-yours? Knowing that your little splurge is also helping the environment…or at the very least, not hurting it any. wink wink
Where can you find this kind of guiltless gratification? Copenhagen, of course. Go on, get your retail therapy on the Danish way with environmentally friendly design from White Line Hotels’ Collaborators Bullitt Bikes and Design by Us.
