Claire Larritt-Evans

 

Still want more after yesterday's Fenton & Fenton post? How about the stylist for so many of the shots on the new website? Über talented Claire Larritt-Evans. OMG the colour! The fun! The mix and match. The woman is a genius. Love her work so much. I must admit that the shot of the orange lacquer Chinese cabinet has been in my inspiration files forever. Love. Check out Claire's blog too for updates on her new work.

P.S. Great photos by Tony Mott.

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!)

Here are three pictures of my Italian greyhound Bailey and my mutt Henny on my antique daybed... or should I say THEIR daybed.  We had a feeling this would happen, so we also bought a Mitchell and Gold sectional for us humans.

Meet Madison. She's a 9 week old (absolutely adorable) West Highland Terrier puppy! Here's Madi on a steel grey button back chair with a Florence Broadhurst 'Aubury' cushion.

I live in Torrance, CA with my husband and two cats Harris and Flynn.  The picture is of Flynn on our dining room table and Harris on the windowsill.  There is usually a nice sunny spot on the dining room table that both cats love lounging in. And the window ledge is great for watching birds at the bird feeder.

Lucy Fenton

Ever imagine what it would be like living in your favourite shop? Well if the wonderland of a store Fenton & Fenton is that shop then 33 Wattle Rd, Hawthorne is where you should be living. As one of a number of creatives asked to style a display apartment last year Lucy Fenton brought her shop to life in an otherwise boring cookie cutter apartment. Colourful, quirky, beautiful her apartment showcased all that her Prahan shop has come to stand for. And now her newly launched website brings her shop to life for those who can't walk through the doors. A must see gallery if you love colour with a touch of ethnic aesthetic, vintage with midcentury re-invented and the unexpected, always the unexpected. Love!
