Stephane Chamard

I professed my undying love to Stephane Chamard's work a couple of months back (here) and I have not been able to get his spaces out of my mind so I thought I would show little bits and pieces from several of his other projects. Each one is funkier than the next, with the most fabulous lighting, furniture and artwork. Bits of modern, mid-century classics, pops of colour and always in-your-face, no-fear vibes.  Love it!

Monday's pets on furniture

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, if the photo is too dark or unfocused then it may not make the cut. Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to desiretoinspirekim[at]hotmail[dot]com and PLEASE don't send closeups of your pet! Thanks!

This is Bella, our rescued Italian Greyhound. Bella doesn't waste any opportunity to jump up on our furniture when we are not looking. This is a photo of her on our Egg Chair, with her signature 'deer in the headlights' look.

Here is Zoom, a french cat in his apartment in Paris.

 Her name is yoshimi and she comes with me to the office every Saturday. The table is made with a old radiator that I refurbished and applied a powder coat finish on it and I use as my conference table.

Prince of drama

Whether capturing an OTT home, a darkened nightspot or the richness of a riad New York based photographer David Prince revels in drama. Rooms that could overwhelm challenge with their beauty and passion.

Behind the shutters

Take a stylist and her builder husband. To this creative mix add a lovely old house on the northern beaches of Sydney, furniture sourced here, there and everywhere and you have the perfect team when it comes to creative homemaking. With stunning photography by Simon Kenny for Content Agency it's an inspiring way to start the week on DTI. I'd love to take the credit but it's another fab story from the pages of the generalist. You can read more here. I promise it won't be the only one you'll read. Many many thanks to the crew at the generalist for sharing all these luscious images. I'm moving in I tell you. Moving in.
