Beach cottage chic

I just love Cortney Bishop and her creative, eclectic, edgy style. We have featured several of her projects and each time I gasp in delight. Yes, YES, YAAASSSS!!! This beach cottage is another stunner. Bright white walls and ceiling to create a simple, bright backdrop to funky furnishings and graphic patterned curtains and pillows. The art in the living room could not be more perfect in this setting. What a fantastic little cottage!

Monday's pets on furniture

If you would like to participate in the Monday's pets on furniture series please send photos, your name, location and a brief description to kim[@]desiretoinspire[.]net, or hashtag your photos #DTIpetsonfurniture. Thanks!

This is our Chihuahua girl, Bambi, on our outdoors armchair enjoying the warmth of the afternoon sun (with the help of a jumper!) and resting comfortably on the sofa amongst her favourite cushions.
- Agi and Dom (Darwin, Australia)

This is Somio, one of our 3 cats, testing the softness of the brand new sofa. Him and his tail seem to appreciate it, and he's ready to plan his day with his favorite activity: sleep!
- Nicholas (Rome, Italy)

I finally had time to get my guest bedroom painted and I LOVE how it turned out. I'll have to get some photos of it ASAP since it's the only room currently 100% completed in a slew of projects we've been working on over the past several months. As soon as I made up the bed Bernie and felix made themselves right at home. 

This isn't showing my pets on furniture but it is the entire herd in one shot so I had to share. You have no idea what a rarity this is. 


Pops of colour in a small London flat

Love the use of colour in this renovation of a one bedroom flat for young newlyweds in Hoxton, East London. Interior designer Cassidy Hughes has turned a tired space into something bright and airy with loads of personality.

A renovated Victorian in London

When old becomes new, and no expense appears to have been spared in the renovation of this semi-detached 4 story, 3,700 sq ft Victorian in Brixton, London. The dark grey stained herringbone hardwood floors are fantastic, and so much drama was added simply by painting the stairs, doors and their frames and some built-in bookcases black. This is classy yet liveable and significant attention to detail in the finishes. Glorious! Available as a location home through the one and only Shoot Factory

Stalking on a Saturday

I'm stalking a mid century classic, Bynya House, on the northern beaches of Sydney. Peter Muller, one of Australia’s most highly regarded and innovative architects, designed this Palm Beach house in 1954 for his own family (with subsequent renovations in 2014-2015). With its low slung form, cantilevered eaves and stepped ceiling and roof line, incorporated rock feature and all that glass, it is a wonderful example of the importance of the relationship between building and site. Please someone lend me the money so I can buy it and fill it full of my own mid century classic furniture. (You'll have to lend me the money for the furniture too.) For sale via Modern House. Link here while it lasts.
