Adela Cabré

Barcelona-based interior designer Adela Cabré has a knack for creating unique spaces that are timeless, moody and hip. The spaces below are my favourites from her portfolio - there's something intriguing in each one. I think my preferences are the dark, dramatic rooms. Now that's hot.

Bob O'Connor

  

From big city rooftop gardens to high end homes, from boho and quirky collections to midcentury modern and ending up with the only faux fur clad rooms you'll ever see on DTI. Welcome to the portfolio of photographer Bob O'Connor. Great shots that capture the character, the whimsy and the downright kitsch. The man not only has a great eye but a sense of humour. Warning - faux fur after the jump.

I want this loft!

A big thanks to Sonia who left us some links to Spanish shelter magazines - because I came across an incredible loft from this site that I immediately fell in love with. OMG - it's got everything. First, it's a loft. You can't go wrong with that. Then there's white walls (my new favourite wall colour), a mix of modern and retro vintage furnishings, Tolix dining chairs, harvest dining table, metro shelving, cowhide rugs, funky artwork, Anglepoise lamp....when can I move in?!?!

La petite Bastide

My head is racing with too many things. Work, the blog, home (maybe even a new house ... there you go I've jinxed it ... need to touch wood). Holidays in far off places with sunny climes and pure peace and simplicity keep popping into my mind. If only. La petite Bastide near the the village of Lourmarin in Provence. My sigh is almost as strong as the mistral. Don't miss the dreamiest of bedrooms 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!)

"here i send you 2 pictures of my "little tulip" chairs by paul paulin with my cats "eimer" (black and white) and "chef" (the grey one) on it, 5 year old sister-cats. chef used to sharpen her claws on it but now - after some damage - she fortunaltely stopped. in addition comes another picture of eimer on my former bookshelf. she loved to be there when visitors where in the apartment. she could overlook everything being in a relatively safe place at the same time."
