On Monday I got back from the very inspiring Copenhagen for my lovely Mr Coote's 30th birthday. Both being massive fans of Scandinavian design we were really excited about going, and we weren't disappointed. We stayed in an amazing hotel called Hotel Fox, which is a 'creative lifestyle' hotel, where about 60 artists/designers/illustrators were given free reign to design the rooms, walls, ceilings, carpets....
This was the breakfast room:

And our fabulously kitsch 'Two Swans' Room, it was so cute! If a little scary at times to wake up to these creatures:

And how could anyone not love a hotel which had this carpet!

I loved this sticker in the lift :-)

These little birdies stole my heart...

A gorgeous book window display.

I just loved the bright coloured circles on the grey on this ice cream shop.

It was really such a beautiful and inspiring place and I would definitely recommend it to everyone :-)
