Are you wondering which cities are going to take your breath away just by the look of them? Here are the world’s top design destinations - be sure to add them to your bucket list!
Cities are hotbeds for great design. Often, so many different designers, architects, and interior stylists come together to create some truly great buildings that it’s worth visiting some cities just to take in all of the awe-inspiring design.
Scandinavia is known for its fantastic chic sense of style when it comes to its interior design, and Copenhagen seems to be the capital of Scandi chic. In fact, the best place to start is the Design Museum Denmark. You will find lots of exhibitions dedicated to interior design. You’ll also see lots of Danish design brands popping up in interiors as you explore the city, including Royal Copenhagen and Dansk.
Los Angeles, United States
Los Angeles is known mainly for Hollywood and all of the fashionable actors and actresses who live there. But did you also know it has a brilliant reputation for fantastic design? It’s true! Once the city was left behind in the American design stakes, especially when you compare it to the likes of New York City, but in recent years things have really improved. The recent completion of some large-scale building projects in Downtown Los Angeles have really improved the area and created some striking buildings in the neighborhood.
Canberra hosts its own design festival each year, so there is no wonder that this city is regularly regarded as Australia’s best for design. Sydney and Melbourne may win in the fashions takes, but Canberra takes the top spot for Australian design. If you stay in these serviced apartments in Canberra you will be able to sleep surrounded by some of the city’s coolest interiors. Plus, you won’t be too far from some of the major tourist attractions.
Tokyo is probably best known for its epic cityscape, but if you can manage to drag your eyes away from all the skyscrapers for just one minute, you will also notice its intricate and beautiful design. Take a trip to the Japanese capital, and you will be able to see its expert mix of traditional and contemporary styles first hand. By day, you can be exploring an 18th-century temple and then by night, you could be enjoying cocktails in an incredibly chic and minimalist-inspired bar!
For the best of traditional European design, it’s a good idea to head to Venice in Italy. As canals cross through the city, most of its streets have been designed with practicality in mind, so that the buildings don’t prevent canal boats from passing through. This doesn’t detract from the gorgeous facades of the buildings, though, many of which are thought to be some of the most beautiful in the world.
So, which city do you think you will head to in order to soak up some incredibly style and design? You’ll have a fab time at any of the cities in this list!
