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!

1 - Home again from far away travels. I get back to work, Tucker resumes position amongst fellow toss cushions.

- Kyla 

I did send you two pictures of the same chair, round about a year back, with my white persian cat Zoe sitting on it. Well, Zoe got a brother puppy a couple of weeks ago and he commandeered it (as well as the couch and every other chair he is able to reach. Even the cat tree isn't save from him.). His name is Clooney as he is a true womanizer, beagle / pug mix and he turned 4 months yesterday (Feb 3).

Green

Just when I think I'm over green I come across an image that has me all green with envy. Love this photograph by Carolyn Barber for House & Garden.

Rachel Whiting encore

Light, bright, colourful, fab. Ok we toss those worlds around a lot on the blog but that's what these images by British photographer Rachel Whiting are. Go lose yourself in Ms Whiting's portfolio. It's about shape and colour and form and simplicity. Like jumping into a pool on a hot day. Refreshing.

I'm back

Hey everyone. My trip to Mexico sadly came to an end Thursday and I have returned to my reality of frigid cold and snowstorms. How I miss cloudless skies, HOT temperatures and being lulled to sleep by the sounds of the ocean. Oh - and the food. Ah mah gawd I ate well. So while I scramble to get my life back in order before the work week begins, here is a quick post on a home I found on Nuevo Estilo (bummed I could not find this mag on my travels). It is located in Paris and is the home/art gallery of Valerie de Marotte and Vicenç Boned of Galeria Tagomago. Stunning architecture, spacious, and just the right amount of eclecticism.

Stalking leftovers

By now you know that I am fussy when it comes to my real estate stalking. Fussy, fussy, fussy and hard to please. Not quite right, bad photos, I need more photos please, house is amazing furniture is deplorable or no furniture at all! Can't quite put my finger on it listings with something that has me nodding "yes". This week's leftovers include an OTT art deco complex with a bathroom of greenest green, a two storey penthouse that is chaotic and classy, a couple of small pools that caught my eye and a 60's iconic house that needs to be saved not bulldozed by developers. Click on the images to head to the listings. All via realestate.com.au.
