Moments of Beauty

The warm gold tone of this lovely photo makes me think of summers by the sea — it's the colour of sunlit sand dunes.

Natural Beauty

What can one say about the beautiful home of light designer Marianne Tuxen, her husband, architect Morten Langebæk, and their three children? Originally a hunting lodge dating back to 1922, it's located about half an hour from Copenhagen, on a gorgeous lake surrounded by a forest. It's not surprising to learn that when the couple first saw it 15 years ago, they immediately purchased it simply because they couldn't resist its wild charm. And seeing their lovely and tranquil home, who can blame them? More here on Marie Claire Italia.

Cinema: Wings of Desire

This 1987 film by German director Wim Wenders is easily one of the most beautiful films I've ever seen. Seeing it when it was first released in theatres was one of the most extraordinary experiences I've had — at the end of the film, there was dead silence and no movement in the audience — no one wanted to break the mood of spiritual wonder it invoked. A must see (and one of my absolute fave films, too). More here on Criterion.
