Danish Country House

Yet another adorable Scandinavian country house to admire- this one north of Copenhagen. Light filled, furnished with comfortable, simple pieces -and I love the ornate ceramic fireplace.Images from here.

Tray Collection

Here we have some very happy works of art masquerading as trays that are part of a stunning collection belonging to fingerspitzengefuhl. See more here and if you understand Swedish you can learn more about them from their blog.

Artist:Angela Bently Fife

I think the paintings of Angela Fife  exude a dark feminine grace with a retro feel. She states on her site that "much of her work is created out of her own confusion of stereotypes, roles and expectations that surround us and shift with time". Perhaps I'm missing the point but these seem completely unambiguous......and lovely. Images from here.

Artist: Thaneeya McArdle

I have loved the work of Thaneeya McArdle since the first time I saw it  years ago.She is an amazing photorealistic painter and I love how she embellishes her animaux works with images of dictionary text, astrology and indian motifs. Her abstracts are richly detailed and punchy......Images sourced from here.
