Monday's pets on furniture - part 1

If you'd like to send me photos to include in next week's "pets on furniture" post, please ensure your photos follow my 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 dog Ziggi in my living room. He's on a chair he's not normally allowed on and I think he knows it!

I wanted to share my coonhound mix, Lloyd, with you. Lloyd finds it very easy to make himself comfortable on any piece of furniture in our home. Here are a few shots of him showing you around... Listening to my husband, Patrick, playing guitar off in the music room. Waiting in the bedroom as I get ready. And, of course, lounging on the couch next to a pillow with a striking resemblance. This lazy hound doesn't ask for much, just a nice spot to take a load off.

This is our Boston Terrier Hubert, sitting on a newly refurbished mid-century chair. We bought the frames on craigslist then sanded and stained the chairs. The cushions were custom made with Maharam upholstery.

Spoilt for choice

I'm real estate stalking in Surry Hills in Sydney ... again. Honestly I think I should just move into this suburb! Choice of two apartments today, both in the same recently refurbished warehouse. Now which one should I buy. Number 1, a two storey two bed or number 2, another two bed but on one floor? Decisions decisions. Links here and here while they last.

Wrong side of the tracks

Across the freight train line in the bad part of town an old garage has a new lease on life. Abandoned and derelict it now houses a studio and living space as well as an open courtyard. A rough and ready building offering a well considered use as home or workspace. By Atlanta architects Brian Bell and David Yoachim of bldgs.

At home with ... Rough Linen

Tricia Rose believes in spirit of place, and after having homes in Sydney, London and the Var in France, she now is cozily ensconced in an old hunting cabin built over the water of San Francisco Bay.
