Shopping in Copenhagen

Royal-Smushi-cafe-CopenhagenI thought I’d give you the final tour of some of the other places I visited in Copenhagen. First up, the renowned Royal Smushi cafe, a pre-requisite stopover for lunch or tea.

Smorrebrod-open-faced-sandwich-Royal-smushi-cafe-Copenhagen-photo-by-Littlebigbell.comThe word Smushi has been derived from ‘Smorrebrod’ (the traditional Danish open faced sandwich) and ‘Sushi’.

Royal-Copenhagen-cupsNext door to the cafe was the Royal Copenhagen store. Three floors of porcelain heaven! On display were this season’s Blue fluted cups with their delicate floral prints.

Hay-house-CopenhagenA short stroll down was Hay House with its two large floors of furniture and accessories.

Pink-tablecloth-Hay-DenmarkThis pale pink ‘Dot” table cloth caught my eye. It is so beautifully contrasted against the copper candlestick holder and fresh yellow-green foliage, an ideal display for brightening up this so evident end to our Summer.

Ronan-&-Erwan-Bouroullec-drawings-Little-Big-BellI didn’t leave Hay house empty handed. I bought Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec’s book after being inspired by their prints displayed against this blue wall.


There was even a children’s section in Hay house. Those cat hangers are so sweet and I have a similar elephant in green. They are by Andreas Linzner, all unique in vintage fabric.


This geometric pattern is from the wall of Stilleben. Another must visit store. I was particularly drawn to the colours, the Autumn/Winter tones that I’m currently favouring.


If I had more luggage room, I would have bought these alphabet prints by Leise Dich Abrahamsen.  My favourites are the lilac and orange.

Hope you have enjoyed this post. I’m now gearing up for the London design festival. Have a wonderful weekend x


  1. So fun that we loved some of the same places. HAY HOUSE and Stilleben are both just gorgeous! And meeting you at Royal Smushi was very nice too 🙂 Have a great Friday! xx

  2. Mmm, that food looks great. I really like the blue and white dinnerware and wish I had a living room big enough to accommodate that modular sofa… Looks like a fab trip. Have a lovely evening xo
