Ultimate bachelor pad

In keeping with the maculine/bachelor pad theme, the following "man cave" in Sao Paolo, Brazil was created by architect Carol Leães and it's a pretty sweet space that any dude would be proud to call home. Complete with pool table and Porsche book strategically placed on the coffee table.

Leclair Decor

Back in September I blogged the home of local Ottawans Sacha and Melissa who were launching a new interior decorating business, Leclair Decor. It seems this new venture has taken off and they sent along photos of their latest project dubbed Ogilvie Condo. I'll let you read the juicy details on their blog, but this condo is the perfect for the first home of a young male professional. Quite the bachelor pad with oodles of modern funkiness. Love all the wallpaper - brings in so much texture without being too bold. Fantastic job Sacha and Melissa!

I Love Architecture

Too cool! This apartment design in Amsterdam is by I Love Architecture and what's not to love. Open plan, white space anchored by substantial timber benches and a wall of kitchen storage. Yellow pendants pop from above punctuating the open space and defining areas. Cave like black tile is used to delineate the ensuite while white stairs levitate up to a rooftop chill out space. Apartment Weteringschans by I Love Architecture.

Confection perfection

Soft and fresh. Whimsy matched with confidence. Comfort and a place of refuge but with personality and playfulness. Part grown up, part fantasy but always the perfect place to hang with friends or chill out. This teenage girl's room in the Pasadena Showcase House of By interior designer Maya Williams. Beautiful details, sophisticated yet youthful colours. It's a room fit for a princess and just right for a stylish young thing.

Monday's pets on furniture - part 2

If you'd like to send me photos to include in next week's "pets on furniture" post, please ensure your photos follow my basic rules: First, the pet must be on a piece of furniture. 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. 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. Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to desiretoinspirekim@hotmail.com and PLEASE don't send closeups of your pet!

This is Rose taking a catnap my mid-century sectional. I bought the sectional just a month ago and Rose loves to lay up against the arms.
- Katrina (Lexington, KY)

cat's name: Pudding. Loves to eat flowers.
- Rosa (Portugal) 

Here is our Logan on his favorite bean bag bear.  He's too big to fit on it now but as a pup it was his hangout spot.  These days he favors our Karlstad sofa (with added mid-century style legs) in front of the window.
