Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Leaving for Helsinki

I'm leaving for Helsinki tomorrow, for Helsinki Design Week, Finland's largest design fair Habitare, and a preview of World Design Capital Helsinki 2012. And I will be meeting Susanna Vento and Minna Jones, editors of two of my favorite blogs!
I'll be posting updates from my trip on the blog's Facebook page, but I don't think I will have time for normal posts here until I'm back home on Saturday. Until then, take a look at Hotel Klaus K where I will be staying!

*edit* This wasn't supposed to be published until tomorrow, but now that it's up, well, I'll just leave it up...

    Hello and Welcome to Helsinki.

    Make your self a favor and leave that "italian" restaurant for others. It's the worst!

    Enjoy! I have been meaning to comment to tell you my husband Tom and I just visited Stockholm, Helsinki, and Leksand and we had an amazing time. Thank you for all of your Stockholm tips in the guide!

    I'm guessing you've been to Helsinki before... but I thought I'd throw in a recommendation for SOPPAKEITTIÖ soups in the market hall. They are amazing and well-priced. http://www.soppakeittio.fi/

    Safe travels!

    Don't miss the public swimming hall Yrjönkadun uimahalli next to your hotel. It is a must!

    Thanks everyone!

    Hannu, thanks for the tip! I have a full schedule planned by the Design Capital team, and it doesn't include eating at the hotel, so I think I will be fine. :) It looks nice though!
