Magdalena Keck

White, bright and not a Scandinavian in sight. Interior designer Magdalena Keck hails from New York but her work turns its back on the Big Apple glam and looks inwards to hearth and home. It's clean lined, simple but well considered. Her colour palette is restrained but all the better to provide respite from the bustle and clash of everyday New York life like this Greenwich Village pied à terre, a wonderful retreat.

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 and PLEASE don't send closeups of your pet!)

This is my 3 years old Yorkshire terrier Frodo siting at our bedroom's Luis inspired chair and on our bed. I am an artist, so you can see one of my blue sky series paintings hangs on bedroom's wall.

Hi there, here's a photo of our Tonkinese cats asleep together on their favourite chair.

Here are my kitties, Riley and Josie in our mid century living room.  The couches were a great flea market find that I re-upholstered and they seem to have each claimed their own :)

Wonderful photography by Lesley Unruh. Real and messy and everyday beautiful.


Isabel López-Quesada encore

I love the portfolio of Spanish designer Isabel López-Quesada. Love. I needed inspiration to start the week. I knew I would find it on her website. Rustic yet elegant. Casual and real but steeped with history and a sense of place. Here a dream house in Biarritz, France.
