I read design blogs, because they are like t.v. shows for me- I’m able to stare at the magnificently styled shots, the sublime lighting, and zone out for a bit. Even though I freelance at it, I’m sort of like the Chevy Cavalier of photo styling. I’m good at it, and reliable, but I’m not passionate about doing it, so the magic’s not there…. But geez boy howdy, do I know good styling when I see it.

Recently I subscribed to this here blog, and I can’t get enough: emmas’ designblogg She’s the Swedish design bomb. I love her site; she tends toward showing light, white, airy modern minimalist places.

This post by her makes me drool copiously. Go ahead, click on the pic:

Then I found this photographer from a link on Emma’s blog, and I’m so in love with the style- it’s completely different than the interiors on Emma’s site, but it screams Vermeer. Looky:

And just gaze at this photo by him/her/it. I defy you to not want to walk right into the photo and sit on that couch with a big martini in one hand, and the New York Times spread out all over the place.

This is from his/her site:

  • Ditte Isager

    Photographer born and raised in Copenhagen Denmark. Living in NYC since 2006. Shooting interiors, personalities, lifestyle and travel. The style is simple nordic. Working with contrast in materials, light, color and objects.

SEE!? Dutch Masters. I have not lost my dope grasp on art history.

    Dear Anonymous, Yes, I believe I can answer your questions. Or at least one. Low flower water is a closely-guarded industry secret. But paintings are hung too high simply due to utter silliness and lack of good sense.
