Mark Williams

What's that you say? You came here craving a little bit 'o eye candy? Well, let me see what I can do to help. How about some photos from the talented Mark Williams, whom I featured once before here, that I guarantee will have you aching with envy (either because you wish your home looked even remotely as fab as these spaces, or because you can't take a decent photograph to save your life). :-)

Tzannes Associates

Australian firm Tzannes Associates has delved into architectural, urban design and interior design services since 1983. They are award-winning and renowned for elegant and understated architecture. Their process focuses on the relationship between a building, its context and function. It would be an honour to set foot in one of the homes they have designed....and you would have to drag me out kicking and screaming.

Monday's pets on furniture

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 me closeups of your pet!)

"This is our 19 year old cat Ollie making himself at home amongst our cushions. The clicking camera woke him up and he wasn't very happy!"

"I just bought a small apartment in the centre of Amsterdam and a small kitten to accompany it. Here you see 4 month old Billie relaxing on the arm rest of one of the two Exquis chairs (a brand apparently unknown on the internet) I bought from marketplace (the Dutch craiglist)."

"This is Chairman Meow next to a Kartell unit and on a window seat. This picture was taken for a post on Come Over Sunday and is owned and much loved by James and Leila who live in Marrickville Sydney."

"These are my 3 cats: Aldo, who is an 18-year old stray Siamese that jumped into my arms on a rainy day on the street; Chaplin, the tuxedo and Artos, the orange cat; both of them rescues, also. Aldo has recently discovered the cubbyhole that I cut into the sideboard. The sideboard/chest used to be a mid-century music cabinet, which I found on the curb. I gutted the interior and where the speakers used to be, cut out a hole and lined it with fleece. It makes for a little cat-cave and my cats take turns to claim it. I recently painted the walls with stripes and adding the key-collection to make the entry-hall look like a curio-cabinet."

More from Petra Bindel 

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend. I'm filling in for Jo this morning as she is hopefully having a smooth move into her new home. I haven't spoken to her since Thursday - our only method of communication is via IM and I imagine she hasn't had her internet hooked up yet. I'm dying to hear how things are going and to see photos of her home. Anyhoo, I found myself on the website of Swedish photographer Petra Bindel the other day and I thought I'd post an update since it's been almost 2 years since Jo blogged about her work. I'm a huge fan as she's made the rounds of many Swedish magazines with her somewhat raw and oraganic photos that are a glimpse into beautiful spaces, like a tease to the eye. Yummy.
