So here's the second installment of Susan's holiday snaps. (See the first installment here.) Cogenhagen treasure trove fil de fer. I think Susan sums it up best on the note she attached to these photos, "This store is absolutely crazy. I’ve never ever seen such amazing things. I believe this Danish guy goes to France and everything is from France. I thought you’d enjoy this store, it’s very special." Susan are you crazy? I don't just like this store I love it! Imagine rumaging through here looking for inspiration. Once again click on the pictures to supersize! Thanks Susan for sharing your pictures.

So what does one of Australia's rising interior design stars do when he's in the States? Take tourist shots that's what. But where is the pose with Mickey Mouse or travel buddies in Times Square? No, Greg Natale takes snaps of architectural marvels the likes of the Foster's Hurst Tower, Gehrey's Walt Disney Hall, the Meyer Ghetty Center and the Guggenheim . Notice though that Greg, the king of patternis drawn to pattern here as well. Thanks for sharing Greg!
The firm of Konig Eizenberg Architecture believes that "architecture isn't just for special occasions", and with each project they follow three simple principles: trust, ease and fit. All of this together creates "extraordinary experiences on a daily basis". And if I had the opportunity to live in one of their spaces, an extraordinary experience it would be.
What do you do when you go on holidays? Relax by the pool, visit family, sightsee or shop to you drop? Now what do designers do when they go on holidays? They scour a city for anything design related, camera clutched tightly in hand. Susan Sera blogger extraordinaire and talented kitchen designer certainly had her camera at the ready during her recent family trip to Denmark. Susan promised a number of blogs to take photos while she was away. These are the ones she took for us. Not only has Susan a great eye she is an amazing photographer.
You may recognise the first photo. As a strange coincidence we posted about Atelier September while Susan was away. Her photos capture the store in all it's faded glory. And here's a little teaser of the other photos she sent. All will be revealed tomorrow when we wander through another Copenhagen store thanks to Susan. We also have some holiday snaps Greg Natale took while in L.A. recently. How come everyone's on holidays except me?
