Hotel Casa Delina

Mauricio Guillen emailed us about his latest interior design project, and because I absolutely adore Mexico, this one gave me that warm and fuzzy feeling. Casa Delina is located in historic downtown Comitán, Chiapas (close to the Guatemalan border). The hotel is a home built in 1851 that has undergone some serious renovations to modernize it and provide all the necessities you need. It has eight rooms in which each one has its own decor theme, and each showcases art from artists located throughout the world. Its central courtyard and lush landscaping make this hotel SO appealing...and over the winter when planning my yearly trip to Puerto Vallarta, I might see if I can squeeze a trip in to stay here for a few days. :-)

Calm

Oh I need a little calm in my life at the moment. Frantic is the word that best describes my work load. I'd love a little zen like corner like this. I don't think I'd sit here though. No I'd stand just where the photographer has and muse or perhaps I'd just smile slightly as I rushed past on my way to work! Found in the portfolio of photographer Romain Ricard.

Long Courtyard House

A modern extension to an inner Sydney house sees contemporary concrete and timber "boxes" provide the owners with courtyard living as well as extra living space. Love the sliding walls that open the inside to the out as well as the second garden on the roof. Long Courtyard House by Scale Architecture.

Monday's pets on furniture

If you would like to send me photos to include in next week's pets on furniture post, please ensure your photos follow these basic rules: First, the pet must be on a piece of furniture. And said piece of furniture must be clearly visible in the photo, so it takes center stage rather than your pet. Think of it more of a photo of a great piece of furniture that you want to show off...and your pet happens to be sitting on it. And second, if the photo is too dark or unfocused it may not make the cut. Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to kim[at]desiretoinspire[dot]net. Thanks!

Please see the attached photo of our French Bulldog puppy Truffle. She lives in Melbourne, Australia and is three months old. (She's on instagram @trufflethefrenchie). It was an unplanned photo, it's the first time she's laid down like this. She's usually quite a character, such as the below... so to get her off guard like this was quite funny.
