Peggy Roberts


I met Peggy on Flickr a while back and she recently posted pictures of the really cool paintings that she created. They look great in her home so I thought I'd share her photos. (Love the pink doors!!)

Dogs on a chair


I was just at a cool pet store called Bark and Fitz buying my cats a catnip cigar when I noticed some really adorable photography of dogs in the store window. They were by Sue Bird, a local dog photgrapher. Check out the photos on her website and blog. At least she had the photo above on her site so I can get in my "dog on a chair" comment. Had to add the next 3 because they are just too cute.

So hip it hurts.

Very early on in the life of desire to inspire we received an email from Lorenzo telling us how much he loved the site and did we want to swap links. One look at his wonderful apartment and the blog that chronicles it and he was on the blog roll. I thought at first that Lorenzo and his girlfriend had to be designers. No they're in the arts and hail from Firenze my favourite Italian city. Their recently restored flat is stark white except for the pink quartz and resin floors and amazing original 50s windows. All of this is just the stage for their stellar collection of design classics. All the greats are here - Panton, Ettore Sottsass, Saarinen, Achille Castiglioni the list goes on. Lorenzo just sent me some new pictures. Their apartment is so hip it hurts! For details on their amazing collection check out their blog HipHouse.
