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!)

***Pets on furniture will be put on hold for the next couple of weeks while I am on holidays. Feel free to continue submitting photos to me. I will resume these posts on March 14th.

Here you have our hairy persian cat Bengt, six years old. He loves our furniture, here on a armchair from IKEA and a footrest from Englesson.

P.S. I'd like to wish my husband a very happy thirty something birthday! How about a trip to Mexico for your pressie? :-) Love you Jeffrey!!

Here is my kitten Harriet-who I usually just refer to as Muffin Top ( "...is all that whole grain low fat" 30 rock anyone? )- on a mid-century looking chair i found for five whole dollars  recently. Two of my favorite things.

Here's a pic of my German Shepherd Major Dukes, lying pretty in a '29 Spanish Revival apartment in Hollywood, CA. Of course, he's got a Facebook fan page, too.

Stalking cool

It's hip. It's cool. It's retro modern and I want it to be mine. Add a piece of art or two. Find a place for my Featherstone chairs. Maybe a PNG spirit house totem in the corner and I would be very very happy in this Surry Hills warehouse. Sometimes stalking pays off. I'm already living my imaginary life here :)

Exterior ideas

I am in panic mode now - my trip is less than a week away and I have hardly crossed off any items on my TO DO list. AH WELL. As a result I did not have time to travel around blogland looking for my favourite photos of the week to post today. Rather, I had to spend some time digging through my photo stash looking for photos of the exterior of homes because my architect emailed the other day wanting to know what we were thinking of (we're replacing the ugly-ass siding on the existing house too so it will be a BIG job with a hefty price tag) . I have no freaking clue what to tell him - all I know is because it's pretty much 2 flat 2-story rectangles perhaps some of the windows could protrude a bit and at least 2 different materials could provide some visual interest. I have never had the opportunity to deal with the exterior of a home before so I figured we could just send him some photos of inspiration and he could figure something out for now. I narrowed it down to the photos below. If anyone has suggestions please feel free to leave them in the comments (plans we have so far for the new house are here).

P.S. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD!!!!
