And then there were the four of us (C & S, IT, MW)…  on this trip to Copenhagen (København, Danemark). It was indeed a good idea to rent an apartment – more economical and convivial.

strandgade-1

Our apartment is located in Christianshavn just across the inner harbor from the city center. We could walk to the center in under 15 minutes.

strandgade-29

Our host is a stage designer who evidently applied her skills to decorate the place. The result is unique and fantastic.

strandgade-3

She baked us fresh bread in the oven in the apartment and took it out as we arrived – the apartment is filled with that warm and welcoming smell – a trick that is borrowed from a real estate agent’s playbook.

strandgade-12

We liked to gravitate around the table in the dining room.

strandgade-9

Breakfast, one morning, including the bread our host baked for us.

strandgade-13

We have gloriously high ceilings, except the kitchen and the upper floor. P

strandgade-5

Parts of the apartment felt like a loft but it isn’t since it was not built for an industrial purpose in the first place.

The apartment was very bright – possibly the dining room windows face south or east. We got a lot of sunshine in the morning.

strandgade-14

The living room is large and thus appeared to be sparely furnished – the sofa, coffee table, and chairs are adequate.

strandgade-8

One side of the living room is lined with bookshelves. Above the shelves are shallow alcoves where a few pieces of art are displayed and lit. The light can be turned on or off remotely to accent (show off) the art work.

strandgade-11

Many fixtures in the apartment are classic Danish designer pieces.

strandgade-10

In the middle of the living room, there was a iMac on a rather large custom-made, leather-wrapped table (used to be a draughtsman’s table) and a vintage designer office chair, topped with a shaggy sheep skin seat cover.

strandgade-7

The TV is relegated to a corner of the living room behind a door. That’s how important TV is to the host’s family.

More pictures to come … but if you are curious to see what we rented when we were in Paris, click here.
