Dog on a couch with some fab pillows

Dean of my little apartment emailed to share photos of her half corgi/half beagle pooch named Bunny, who appears to love lounging on her couch with some fabulous vintage geometric needlepoint pillows. Thanks for sharing these Dean!

Sorry to steal your thunder Dean but while I'm posting more cute reader's pets, I thought I'd sneak a photo in of one of my 5 monsters cats. Here's my favourite one of Lucky, sitting like a little old man on one of my mid-century chairs I inherited from my nonna (grandmother). This one is for you Auntie Jo.


Deborah Jaffe

Deborah Jaffe is a photographer who had shot for all sorts of magazines: Domino, Elle Decoration, Jane, Cosmo, Elle, Glamour and more. But of course, I am particularly fond of her interiors portfolio. Sadly, the photos on her website appear to be scans so they aren't very large or clear, but they are beautiful nonetheless.



I love grouping (no not groping!) I love the way that artwork clustered together in loose or formal arrangements often adds even more impact than a solitary piece. Here are just a few ideas.

Cat on a sofa

It didn't take long from Kim's request for cats on chairs for Susan, The Kitchen Designer to send us photos of the adorable Sparky. "Sparky sits his derriere right against and usually on top of one end of my keyboard every day for part of the day. Other times he jumps on the tall back of my expensive chair and, what else, uses it as a scratching post. Oh, and let me tell you another thing...every night he sleeps just below my feet on top of the covers! How cute is that!" Too cute that's how cute he is! Here Sparky want to come live in Australia with Jo?
