Mangerton House by MacLean Interiors. Love the kitchen. Think of the wonderful times cooking for friends and family gathered around that table. The tiles. The shelves.  The pink! Needless to say the shower screen is fabulous. A touch of whimsy in white bright room. Still with a house like this and a location so picturesque how could you go wrong?

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, location and a brief description can be sent to and PLEASE don't send closeups of your pet!)

His name is PONCHO, he's 2 months old.

This is our new Vizsla puppy, William. He's 14 weeks old. He's our third Vizsla so we know what we're in for.
Photo #1 - I was folding laundry the other day when I turned my back on William for a second. The camera happened to be close by. I'm thinking that this spot won't work so well when he's 60lbs!?!
Photo #2 - We decided that there was no point trying to keep him off the couches so we gave him his own. It's officially Will's chair.

I'm a big fan of your blog and wanted to share a picture of my dog Pucci with you. She's fresh out from a trim and i shot her at work today on a chair that i believe is Danish from around the 50´s.
The sofa is a find from second hand store, just got it upholstered.

Hello yellow

Open plan contemporary living in an Australian bush setting. Pushing out from the ridge the glass and metal box is anchored by a big, bright dose of sunny yellow, a kitchen that shines like a beacon through the eucalyptus. It's the ultimate bush shed by Sydney based, international architectural studio Lippmann Partnership. If a bush retreat is not your idea of architectural nirvana then perhaps the beach shack after the jump is more your modern retreat ideal.

Random on a Sunday

I spent yesterday at my sister's cottage, enjoying what is likely the last decent weekend of the summer (although I did have jeans and a hoodie on for most of the day...this time of year is SO depressing). This means I did not have time to get a blog favourites post ready. Instead, I thought I would just keep this random with some items I have on hand.

First up, some photos I took Friday since I had the day off work and decided to spend a couple minutes rearranging some pieces in my living room. I LOVE this lamp that I bought at Homesense a while back and have had it crammed in a corner of my bedroom since it came home with me. I decided to move it next to the front door alongside my black Eames leather side chair, and switch out my Mexican tin mirror with my huge beaded rosary (also picked up in Mexico). Nothing too exciting but with no renovations on the horizon for this year I'm back to giving a sh*t what my house looks like. Because that Eames chair is a favourite of Felix, he has claimed the chair in the majority of these photos.

Despite the following action being out of focus, I thought it was hilarious that I managed to capture a little brawl.
