Zuster

Zuster, Dutch for sister, is the perfect name for a Melbourne-based furniture and interior design company run by 4 sisters (Wilhelmina McCarroll, Fleur Bouw, Katrina Myers and Meika Behrendorff). The Zuster philosophy embraces simple lines and unadorned forms, providing the perfect foundation for beautiful timber grains and meticulous craftsmanship. With strong attention to finer details, pieces are characterised by subtle shadow lines, seamless timber butterfly handles and the careful selection of matching grains to work with the proportions of the piece. Their bespoke contemporary furniture is gorgeous, and you can check it out on their website, but as you know Jo and I prefer to focus on interiors. This company is very talented in that department as well, and the spaces they have designed feature many of their furnishings. The first few photos below are of Willy's home, on 40 acres in Yarra Valley, complete with picturesque view and horses!

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!)

This is my little angel Maggot, (goes by "Maggie" for short), she is a two year old Maltese Poodle X. Here she is having an (interrupted) nap in the afternoon light of the master bedroom.

This is Lucy. She's the newest addition to our family, but as you can see she's quickly made herself at home. Here she's sprawled our on our sectional in the den, flat on her back & snoozing the day away.

I came downstairs to find my two year old boxer, Vash, sunbathing on this chair.

There's Ginger, my fifteen year old kitty, nesting in an afghan knitted by my late grandmother on my sleek and incredibly comfortable white leather sofa. Ginger joined Me'me' (french for grandma) in the great beyond on wednesday. She always was a very stylish girl.
