Freedom

Let me say first that this is a sponsored post. YES!!!!! I love a sponsored post especially if it involves a flight to Sydney, a fab city suite, a day to shop till I drop (my money not theirs boohoo) and then an invite to the launch of Freedom's autumn collection on Wednesday. Great design and style don't need a great big price tag to match so I can't wait to see what Freedom, one of Australia's leading furniture and homewares purveyors has in store. Promise I'll let you know as soon as I can. I'm excited!

Heavenly

Kim and I have a thing about church conversions. We've committed the deadly sins of lust and envy quite a number of times over the years. (The evidence of our religious obsessions can be found here.) Thanks to reader Paul we can now covet this conversion of the former Tattykeeran Church. It's even for sale. Maybe your prayers have been answered ..... sorry about the bad puns!

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 me closeups of your pet!)

Miffy catnapping on my reclaimed wooden bar stool from the building site of a knocked down Dalston pub, against a backdrop of several years worth of vintage suitcases collected from car boot sales, skips, charity shops and the streets of London.

My king charles cavalier, Ginger doing what she does best...rest and relax on my living room sofa. Mohair is hard to resist!
- Jennifer (Summit, New Jersey)

I've got some pics to submit again. This time its my English Bulldog, Butterball. She always finds different places to snooze but i thought this was really cute. She's lying on my "magic carpet" on my striped rug. All the colors came together so beautifully. So much viibrance and yet there she was in this vibrant setting sound asleep.

Here is Pumpernickel, four months old, sitting on my amazing "As is" IKEA find (200$ instead of 400$). The second photo was taken by Daniel Kudish, pet (and wedding) photographer, when she was about two months old.

This is Igby! My four month old Shih Tzu.

Here's our rescue beagle, Molly Ivins, on two of my favorite pieces of furniture: the consignment shop Century Furniture club chair, and the faux-grass estate sale chair. Though these are family heirlooms, both  
are greatly improved by the addition of Miss Molly!

Pls find attached the photo of our family dog. It is called Enzo and he is 6 years old.

My husband and I just adopted our little 3 year old Beagle/Foxhound named January from the Ottawa Humane Society 2 weeks ago and we love her.  She has made herself right at home on our 2 vintage turquoise arm chairs.

Gitte Kjaer

Turn your eyes away now if fabulous rooms and inspirational style boards are too much for you first thing in the week. I cannot get enough of Danish stylist Gitte Kjaer's vibe. Edgy, cool, relaxed but rocking. Even better that her website is full of large, luscious images. Enjoy!
