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 closeups of your pet!)

I am sending you a picture of my dog Dyrgja (14 years old). I just finished furnishing my sisters apartment and desire to inspire has been a great help. Thank you! I actually found the inspiration for the 'Hi!' in the picture on desire to inspire. When you blogged about Mark Zeff in September I was instantly in love with the 'Vicious' sign on the wall and it looked like something I could DIY, so I decided to make a big sign for my sisters living room – this is how it turned out.

As stately as King sometimes is and Lord over his manor, his favorite chair and best hangout spot ever seems to be under his State portrait beaming for all the world to see…

On photo there is my 6 years old french bulldog Maximus...he loves comfortable furniture and this is my ikea chair:) and he loves me and my writer boyfriend.

Still far from the norm

Definitely far from the norm. Minimalist, white, mid century classics, a dash of black to heighten the mix, bagged bricks and bleached floors and just because it's amazing how about the IKEA PS MASKROS sitting cheek by jowl with Hans Wegner's Wishbone chairs. The Fredensborg house by Norm Architects Copenhagen. White perfection.

Racing the storm

Wild storms are approaching. I must be quick before the lightning comes. As I watch the angry clouds race across the sky I couldn't think of a better post than this one featuring the bruised colours of stylist Hilary Robertson (via Big Leo). Accept that these are calming and soft like that fleeting moment after the rain has stopped, when the calm descends but the light is still other worldly and the thunder rumbles away into the distance. Beautiful colours. Beautiful work.

Sergio Ghetti

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you all get to enjoy some great weather and fun activities. I will be taking a break from studying tomorrow night for dinner out and a Kings of Leon concert (LOVE them Followills!). I leave you today with some fine images from Italian photographer Sergio Ghetti. I find portfolios like Sergio's very intriguing. The spaces are rather raw and natural (he even had the opportunity to photograph a grotto doubling as someone's home!). It is a nice break from the overly styled photos you find in magazines where everything is far too perfect. I am not a fan of perfection.

Four fine photos

  

  

Another rustic idyll. Love those stairs, the white washed walls. Fab shots by Johanna Ekmark via Söderberg Agentur.
