Maria's Favourite Painting: Country Life

Interior Looking out on the Exterior, Strandgade 30 by Hammershøi

‘As someone who spends most of my time thinking about buildings and their interiors, I love Hammershøi’s work for its calm, controlled balance and the way it explores space and light.

I understand the British comfort that comes from clutter, but my Danish roots aspire to calm.’
