Amy Neunsinger

Love, love, love Amy Neunsinger. Actually I should say love her work :) ... and her home :) Maybe I should actually say that I'm incredibly jealous. Not only is she a fabulous photographer but some of these shots are of her own gorgeous home. She captures perfectly the light, airy white on white vibe that is so hot now. Want to walk into these images and make myself right at home.

Helena's Swedish home

Helena, of the blog På vår udde, emailed us with photo after photo of her gorgeous home on Malaren Lake, outside Vasteras in Sweden. OMG the views, and those windows are to die for! It's a little slice of heaven, and she has decorated it beautifully - simple and comfortable, perfect for a family of 5.

Paul Ryan-Goff

My mediocre day of coughs and sneezes, tissues and head colds is made instantly brighter just visiting Paul Ryan-Goff's stellar portfolio. This über talented UK-based photographer almost paints his images with natural light, composition is clever and he knows just how to capture that daydream we all need. A cosy room. a warm fire, favourite objects and serenity, beautiful, beautiful serenity. So much more after the jump.

Monday's pets on furniture

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 and a brief description can be sent to desiretoinspirekim@hotmail.com and PLEASE don't send me closeups of your pet!)

"Hi, my name is Ana Ferraz, I'm from Brazil and this lovely pet is Bijou, one of my four adopted cats. She is a delicate white princess, an angel with blue vivid eyes. She is so beautiful (I'm a proud mother...rs) that I consider her a essential part of the decoration."
- Ana

"This is my dog, Seiko. Doing what she likes the most... yawning"
- Karina

"I'm sending you a photo of my cat Sofia Coppola on my retro furniture."
- Johansen (Olomouc, Czech Republic)

"Is this furniture??? The Kitty thinks so. She likes to perch here and look out at the garden...... when she's not lounging on my floor cushions.... or trying to blend into the sofa. It's a rustic hand carved bench from Bali. Too big for my house really, but I can't part with it....or the cat! -- We found "Kitty" when she was just a kitten. She's deaf and was stranded on our roof after a typhoon. She's 10 years old now and fat!"
- Tamara

"This is Ponyo, on his favourite look-out spot on our tatami mat. Watching the world go by."
- Min & Eugene

"This is our cat Houdini caught plotting his escape!"

Alexis & Alex (NYC)

"My friend Adelaide, sitting inconspicuously in the morning sun, on a forest green Thalya Chair from Kartell. Hope you like!"

Tale of two cities 1 + 2

I'm stalking Melbourne and Sydney. Daydreaming again. (News on my own house search. We signed on a house here in Brisbane only to have it fall over on building and pest ... termites ... eek! The search goes on again. See what I bought instead on my page.) The first house today is from Prahan in Melbourne. Love the kitchen counter, the ladder and lights. Love the bones of this house, the bathroom vanities and the practical backyard. The second house, after the jump, is in Redfern in Sydney with recycled timbers, a loft bedroom and clever layout for a tiny space. Funky and fun, warm and quirky. The perfect inner city pad. Oh and I decided to add a third house just to even things up in the competition.
