Dream office

Talking about offices, I have an old dream office: In Copenhagen or a city like it (Oslo, Stockholm, Amsterdam... of course these places are expensive.) it should be on the first floor (in Europe that's the one above the ground floor), and have high ceilings. It should have a picture window view over a lovely car-free square. (Easiest accomplished by being located by such a square.) And... well, that's about it. Throw in some keeeewl furniture like below, and you gottanoffice you can stand! Copenhagen, by the way, unlike for instance Edinburgh (which apparently was not designed for it, and they can't move those old stone buildings), has many, many wonderful squares, with trees and cafés and such.

A friend of my sister's has an apartment by that, by one of the best squares in Copenhagen, Gråbrødretorv, above one of my favorite restaurants, Peder Oxe, and going around all four side of the building. Man, what a dream apartment. I dare not think what it costs.

For a while there I thought you were describing my pad. But then when you didn't specify the requirement for it to also be within a short walking distance from the sea, I realized you are talking about someone else's dwelling.
