MODERNIST PETS

Decorating around a litter box is not an easy task. But Seattle-based artist Crystal Gregory has come up with this beautiful collection of stylish cabinets to help cat lovers camouflage the unwelcome eyesore. Owner of two Canadian Hairless cats and two Italian Greyhounds, Crystal understood the need to take pet furniture to another level by creating Modernist Cat. The Collection is modeled with Mid-Century design principles—with utility and durability in mind. The cabinets can be arranged in different configurations to disguise unsightly litter pans, reduce litter tracking or be used as a place for your modern cat or dog to play, perch or sleep without compromising your home's fab style. I don't know what's cuter, her cool cabinets or her adorable pets.

MORE THAN ART

One of the things on my must-do list when traveling to a new city, is paying a visit to the local Modern Art Museum. So Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Copenhagen wasn't going to be an exception. After a 40-minute train ride from Central Station, and a short walk through a beautiful suburban street, we arrived at the most stunning setting I've ever seen for a museum. Absolutely breathtaking. An amazing sculpture park faces the sea and the interaction between art, nature and the museum's architecture is quite unique. One of the largest museums in Scandinavia, its permanent collection includes over 3000 works from artists like Picasso, Giacometti, Yves Klein, Andy Warhol and Rauschenberg, among many others. Luckily, we were also able to see the New Nordic, a super cool exhibit that explores how ‘Nordic’ features are reflected in their architecture. Lousiana is truly a magical place. More than a museum, it's a great destination where we spent a glorious sunny Sunday enjoying art, strolling through splendid grounds, and eating delicious buffet spread with local fares in their Mid-Century decorated cafe. Most definitely, this is a museum you should add to your list of places to visit.

A HAY-VEN OF GREAT DESIGN

I was happily surprised to have stumbled upon one of the coolest home decor shops on my first day in Copenhagen. After visiting The Apartment, we headed over to the center of town to grab a bite when I suddenly saw HAY, the Danish home decor brand known for their strong commitment to good design and making it accessible to everyone. The moment you step into the building, you're welcomed by a wall lined with neon lights directing you to the elevator that takes you up to a design wonderland. The store has three floors of beautifully set vignettes displaying their gorgeous inventory. Besides their to-die-for furniture collection, HAY is also known for their stunning accessories, rugs, pillows, bedding and a wonderful collection of knick-knacks for every room of the home. Needless to say, I drooled my way around the whole store. Although I'd seen a few of their pieces here in New York, it wasn't the same as being surrounded by rooms filled with their brilliant design. Being a huge fan of HAY, I felt like a kid in a candy store.

PAST AND PRESENT

Danish design has been in the vanguard for decades. We've all come to know and love the classic traits that have made this style an international force. While in Copenhagen, I paid a visit to the Danish Design Center, Denmark’s knowledge centre for design, and was able to see some very cool exhibits. One of my favorites was Denmark by Design, an exhibit showcasing the development in Danish design from 1945 to 2010 and how it has become an integrated part of our everyday lives and mindset. The exhibition also explores the new generation of designers and companies that will design the decades to come and maintain Denmark's position as a leading design nation. The pieces were displayed by decades in a very clever way, giving a clear scope of the extensive contributions by Danish designers to modernity. I enjoyed everything about it, particularly being surrounded by so many iconic pieces of furniture I love and use in my everyday life, like Arne Jacobsen's Egg and Ant chairs and the Pantone chair by Verner Panton.

THE APARTMENT

I just got back from my Scandinavian vacation, and after ten glorious days of exploring the beautiful cities of Copenhagen and Stockholm, I've returned full of new ideas and with an overdose of wonderful design. Before leaving on my trip, I made sure to jot down a list of places to visit and must-do things while there. One of the places on the top of my list was The Apartment, a stunning gallery-like space showcasing a unique collection of design objects, furniture, antiques and art in the elegant setting of an apartment in the heart of Copenhagen. After checking into the lovely Andersen Hotel, we took a long stroll in search of what I had read was the most amazing setting located on the second floor of a beautiful ochre Danish building. We were pleasantly greeted by the charming Co-founder and Creative Director of The Apartment, Tina Seidenfaden Busck. I was in awe the moment I walked in—it was truly one of the most beautiful set ups I've ever seen. Every single room of this spacious flat was decorated with pieces they had carefully selected to create an exquisite living space. The Apartment is used mostly as a showroom to display their beautifully-curated furniture installations that they change as new pieces come in. “We hope that The Apartment will become more interesting as time passes. That we establish a place for beautiful design and art that surprises each and every visitor – a place people come back to again and again for inspiration and for exciting design,” she explains. Of course, I wanted to grab everything and bring it back home, as everything they showcase is for sale to the public. You must check their dreamy inventory here. Definitely, this is a place you must visit when in the Danish capital.

CREATIVE MINDS THINK ALIKE

There's nothing that will keep creative minds from creating, especially when talented ones join forces—like German product designers Eva Marguerre and Marcel Besau, who teamed up to create Studio Besau Marguerre. Besides product design, their services range from interiors design to visual communication and branding. I'm glad I came across their site–it's a wonderful source of inspiration and eye candy. Take for instance this DIY project they worked on for Brigitte magazine. It's overly clever how they came up with these beautiful vignettes of chairs that have been refurbished together with the materials used for the transformation. Plus each of the chairs turned out simply gorgeous and give you some unique ideas to try on your own... right? If you have a few minutes and want to enjoy some of the behind-the-scenes happenings of the shoot, click here.
