The pure visual pleasure of beautiful styling, such as this tablescape styled by Stephanie Somebody, photographed perfectly by Luisa Brimble.

Today I'm admiring the beautiful studio of Danish artist Karin Birgitte Lund, in the home she shares with her husband, the composer Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen. The house belonged to Pelle's parents originally — Karin's studio was first used by Pelle's father, the sculptor Jørgen Gudmundsen-Holmgreen, while Pelle continues to use the music room built for him as a teenager, where he could practice the violin without disturbing the family. And if you live in or visit Denmark, you can see Karin's work every day — her designs are on the Danish banknotes. More here on Bo Bedre.

I had a lovely email from photographer Cheryl Maeder the other day, introducing me to her latest work, Submerge. The series explores the relationship humans share with water, and I love the abstract quality of these images — and how the refracted water turns the submerged human figure into a shifting, mysterious presence. Beautiful. You can view more of this series at the 'Breaking Surface' exhibition now on at Ca'D'Oro Gallery in NYC, too.
