Today is brought to you by the colour blue

Just little pops of blue in a shimmery silver bathroom. Photograph by Petrina Tinslay via 2c. Petrina is also responsible for one of my all time favourite shoots (and cover) for Vogue Living, Lydia Pearson's home here in Brisbane. So maybe today is bought to you by pink as well.

Neal Beckstedt

Predominantly muted colour palettes help set the tone of sophisticated urban living. Easy elegance with an emphasis on texture and simple layering. It's all about a 21st century twist on a classic mid century riff. Neal Beckstedt, New York based architectural and interior design studio. Cool New York pads!

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!)

I've been hoping to catch my pets snoozing nearby one of my favorite vignettes - an old speaker against my Moroccan stenciled wall - so I could snap a photo. This is about as close as I could get. Our newest family member Jelly is snuggled in her blanket on the loveseat, speaker and wall in the background. And I couldn't leave out my Bobo. He is pictured here stealing Jelly's spot later that evening.

These are our girls Stella & Lucy. I caught them on our freshly made bed acting like they own the place…which they basically do :-)

Here's a picture of my Bichon, Harley, in his favorite perch, on top of the bed between all the down pillows.
