Back in '07 Jo blogged about photographer William Waldron a couple of times (here and here). I thought it was time for a long overdue update of his work as I find his photos completely captivating and almost mysterious, as if there were people enjoying these spaces moments before they were captured on camera.
The exterior may be all Victorian era lacework but the interiors with its limed floors, soaring ceilings, stellar art collection and contemporary classic furniture "screams" (in a very quiet art gallery way) best of the best. It's private and luxurious with a knowing nod to the must have and covetable without being in your face look at me gauche. I'm stalking in Elizabeth Bay, Sydney. Architect is Virginia Kerridge and the link is here while it lasts. Memo to self .... seriously need those Vico Magistretti Maralunga armchairs. Actually I'd love the sofa as well. I'm such a 70s gal.
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 email@example.com and PLEASE don't send closeups of your pet!)
This is our cat Greta from Spain. She is in our chair (her chair) looking for reading some book of the shelves.
Since I have no animals of my own (currently living a gypsy-student-life), I thought I'd submit a photo of this wonderfully colorful cat I found outside a shop in Lillehammer, Norway.

When my dog-girl, Pumpkin, jumped up on the table this morning (free-pile find with a sheet aluminum top with hand-crimped edges!) I couldn't resist taking the photos and sending them to you. (My husband made two of the adirondack chairs by copying the third one.)

There is something hypnotic about the work of Dutch stylist Anouk B. Repetition of a minimalist colour palette of black, white, brown and the occasional escape of green. Sparse furnishings always counterbalanced by natural textures. It's calm. It's zen like. It's beautiful in its carefully curated way. Simplicity at its best.
