Cool cave

A haven in the big city cannons. Shady and green outside, dark and cave like cool in. I loved this Fitzroy, Melbourne home when I first saw it in the September/October issue Inside Out. Found it again when I went back to drool over the portfolio of photographer James Greer (see my original post here). Love how he captured the light and shade, the dark against the vibrant green, the stylish and the edgy. Styling is by the incomparable Mr Jason Grant.

P.S. You must get your hands on the Christmas issue of Inside Out. Fabulous!

Brother Sister

Two downtown NY apartments. One for the brother. One for the sister. Both by John Beckmann of Axis Mundi. One wham bam glam. The other restrained elegance. Brother. Sister. Both unique and chic.

Monday's pets on furniture - part 2

If you'd like to send us photos to include in next week's "pets on furniture" post, please ensure your photos follow our 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, the photo must be of decent quality. If it's dark or fuzzy (from a camera phone) then it may not make the cut. Thanks! (Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to  desiretoinspirekim@hotmail.com and PLEASE don't send closeups of your pet!)

*** A huge thanks to all of you who answered my request for more pet entries for today. If some of you are wondering why your photos aren't included, I received so many I had to save some for next week.

My new handmade walnut bed from a wonderful Etsy artisan, against a chocolate wall (my first foray into bold color) and Minnie - my 19 year old geriatric kitty - in her Queen of the Hill mode. The old and the new, merging beautifully.

Here is our giant Siberian cat Lucas on his favorite chair, where you can find him most of the time. He loves to relax.

This is Pixel the Weimaraner trying out our brand new bed! We have just completed renovating our 1920s townhouse and are slowly filling it in with furniture. The bed is our own design made to order for us, and we love it! It is great for leaning on to relax and reading a book in the evening.

This is the feline love of my life, Minnie. She passed away in August and all the pictures I have of her seem to be closeups, these are the most zoomed out I have. I made her a bed out of a cola crate to keep her from sleeping on my hands and keyboard while I worked. First picture is the trial run where she was slightly suspicious, second picture she was madly in love with it.

Cool

Just when I think I am over the Ghost chair I see a cool photo and I forgive this poor chair for being everywhere. Photographer Virginia MacDonald does it again.
