Modern building across the street from Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen, Denmark. The old columns by the gate to Tivoli are mimicked in the design of the new building. This city is rich with design inspiration.
Illum Exclusive Department Store, Copenhagen, Denmark. Well planned design happens here too!

Hanging lamps at the Hilton Strand Hotel in Helsinki, Finland. What a grand statement these made!
City walk around Helsinki, Finland. Birch trees are everywhere!
"Course of Time" Sculpture, Oulu City Hall, Oulu, Finland. These sculptures are about 18" high and represent every type of person who has lived in Oulu from King Charles IX to pastor, wife, merchant, farmer, craftsman, beggar, society lady, shopkeeper, female doctor, student, and many more to Martti, Child of the Future. There are 32 figures in all.
Birches in the small parks in the city of Oulu, Finland. I LOVE the birches!
Train station to the airport in Helsinki, Finland. Textiles painted on the walls depict lace, satin, and pattern designs.
Wall print of a Swedish Weaving Technique called Dukagang in the Sheraton Hotel, Stockholm, Sweden. I tried to find a shop where they might sell some textiles with this handwoven technique but was unsuccessful. Very little hand weaving to be found. Sad since this is part of Sweden's rich heritage.
Yayoi Kusama exhibit at the Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Sweden. This was fascinating and a little dizzying! But oh so interesting!!! Dots everywhere!
