A WELCOMING STAY

As you might know by now, I'm a hopeless junkie for the simplistic beauty of Scandinavian style—the reason why I've always wanted to go to the place where it all started and experience first hand the coolness of Nordic design. So guess what? A week from today, my dream will come true as we cross the pond for a much anticipated visit to Copenhagen and Stockholm. Did I tell you I'm up in the clouds of excitement? While doing my homework of searching for neat places to stay, one that caught my eye was the stunning STAY Copenhagen. A former hub for the city's creative elite before the renovation, the Apartment Hotel offers 12 different spacious and fully-equipped apartments types designed with comfortable Scandinavian minimalism by Danish furniture company HAY. In all honesty, I wouldn't mind spending a few days in any of these dreamy and fantastic pads while in the Danish capital.

Welcome to Copenhagen! I follow your great blog daily. Funny I just did the styling for a music video that is filmed at STAY. Have a look at it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UVensoKSK0s

Hi Marie,
That's a funny coincidence... I love the look of those apartments. Are there any must-visit places you recommend? Any design shops I must go to? Any suggestions are appreciated.

How do we get to something warm and still get the simplicity of Scandanavian style? Let us know if you see it done on your tavels.

Great article and pics. I have got good ideas from it. And even I am now buying a sofa from HAY. They have a distributor here in Helsinki, Finland :)

I think I'm going to be a junkie too when I close escrow in a few weeks on my first home!!! I've been blogging about my experience from the very beginning (making offer, counter offer, etc.) till today! Such a roller coaster, but the experience is amazing!
