Beach stalking 3

I promise this is my last beach stalking for the week. Today's beach home is not quite what you would expect from a seaside residence. It's darker, moodier and more masculine but it is still relaxed and focuses on bringing the outside in. It reflects its position further back from the sea in a canal estate. It's more urban resort than seaside chic and oh so cool. Love the garden ideas in this one. Link here while it lasts.

I see the light

I'm fairly certain I've just died and gone to heaven. Quick, SOMEONE PINCH ME. If this were to be my last post on this blog, I can say I went out with a bang. I am talking about the extraordinary photography of Jean-Marc Wullschleger. This man has photographed some of the most memorable homes I've seen during my MANY hours of research for this blog, and may I be so bold as to say they are some of the coolest homes on the planet.

Beach stalking 2

You know those movie scenes where the recently deceased turns up at the Pearly Gates in Heaven, clouds misting, dressed in white, met by St Peter, harps playing, big gates swinging open? This is what is on the other side of those gates when the clouds divide. Noosa in Queensland at its outrageous Noosa holiday house best. All that is needed to enjoy this house is a colourful bikini and a killer body and lots of ice for the drinks. Maybe I get a killer body when I die. Link for the sale listing here while it lasts.

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!)

Meet my 2 year old chihuahua "Conrad" resting on his favorite furniture after a busy day doing nothing.

A perfect dog. French buldog named Cukrus (EN "sugar").

This is our schweenie, Charles Augustus.  He's sitting a 1960's chair that belonged to my grandmother. Believe it or not, it is a pull out that turns into the world's most uncomfortable twin sized bed.  As a chair though, it's great and is one of Charlie's favourite places to chill.

This is Mitchell's favorite chair. From Day 1, he has claimed it as his own.
