Colbjørnsensgade 14, Vesterbro, 1653 Copenhagen
Copenhagen was our chance to find design inspiration and fulfil our interior decorating dreams. From the vibrant houses lining the waterways, to the bright colours of the Trivoli Gardens, colour runs through the city and informs the vibe of its people. Axel Guldsmeden is located in the Vesterbro district, home to Copenhagen’s best restaurants and designer shops. Only a short walk from major sightseeing spots, it was the best place to be.
The Axel Guldsmeden brings together the style and quirky attitude of the city, while including hints of other cultures that move throughout the city. Each room is individually designed, fitted with Balinese-style accents, art hangings and Persian rugs.
TASTE OF COPENHAGEN
Smørrebrød was originally reserved for farmers’ lunches, but is now a local delicacy with a contemporary twist on tradition. The open sandwich uses rye bread, meat or fish and is topped with vegetables. It’s difficult to eat out in Copenhagen without spotting Smørrebrød on the menu.

Rosenthalerstr 1, Mitte, 10119 Berlin
Berlin has a reputation as being one of the funkiest, grungiest and most impressive cities in Europe. The Circus Hotel was the perfect combination of quirky and comfortable. With otherworldly furnishings and a heavy reliance on colour, The Circus Hotel is a pop of culture in a city full of fun. The Circus Hotel combines the rich history of Berlin with the city’s contemporary art vibes, to create a space that is as unique as it is welcoming.
TASTE OF BERLIN
A trip to Germany is not complete without a sausage dish, accompanied by a large beer. The Currywurst sausage has become a favourite of travellers and locals alike. The humble sausage is doused in ketchup, curry powder and Worcestershire sauce; a hearty dish but worth trying.
