A German home (from a Croatian magazine)

Here is a peek at a home once again from Croatian magazine moja 4 zida (Thanks again Sanja!). This one is actually located in the Bavarian hills of Germany and designed by architects Ippolito Fleitz Group. The views are incredible and easily enjoyed through huge windows. (Photos: Bruno Helbling)

From Croatia

A reader named Sanja from Croatia emailed the other day with a link to her blog where she frequently features Croatian interiors. I love to see decor from different countries around the world and thought I'd share some spaces from Croatian magazine moja 4 zida that she has featured homes from on her blog. This first loft is located in Zagreb and is the home of interior designer Mirena Skoric. Love the bold turquoise sofa! (Photos: Frane Fabris)

I'm not sure where this next home is located but I LOVE the raw, warehouse-like shell and white painted brick/cement walls. And I must mention the inset patch of hardwood in the cement floor. Gorgeous!! (Photos: Guliver/Inside Photo)

Another look

I was looking for ideas for a temporary wall for an upcoming event. I knew the perfect solution was in our archives. When I found it again I realised just how much I really liked this office space. Too cool. I just had to share again. Design by Alwill.

Monday's pets on furniture - part 2

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!)

Here are a couple of photos of Gladys, my rescued Maine Coon kitty, basking in the sunshine on her knitted pouf. She adopted me about two months ago, and her favorite thing to do during the day is follow the sun around our apartment.
- Wendy and Gladys (Oakland, CA)

This is Meahkay, a 12-year-old Sphinx who lives with my best friend Kim in San Diego. Meah is sitting on a red satin cushion with a heated towel (one gets cold with no fur) on a zebra-print slipper chair. Only the best for a princess!

1 - Our little guy loves anywhere with a higher view. Our 100 year old heritage has a ton of built-ins that we gave a fresh coat of glossy white.
2 -
I think he spends more time on the couch than we do, this time curled up in my wool throw (it's still a bit chilly here on the west coast of Canada). I know what you're thinking - white couch and a black dog...but I just love white!
- Katrina (Vancouver, BC)

This is our cat - MegaCat - he is exceedingly fluffy and this red IKEA pouffe is one of his chosen spots. He arrived as a rescue kitten a year ago - with his mum Whiskers and brother Noah. They'll possibly be a bit jealous if his picture gets posted - so will no doubt be posing for their own photos before long!
- Tom (London)
