The beautiful white box

I love a door, don't you? It swings, it folds, it slides, it hides. The joy, the serenity of closing off the cluttered, the dirty, the ugly with a well designed door. Not that there is anything but a calm, almost zen-like quality to this contemporary mansion flat by London-based extrArchitecture. It's like a beautifully crafted puzzle box.

Blues and greys in a California home

Neutral tones with accents of blue and grey and weathered wood give this Corona del Mar, California home a beachy vibe. Such a soothing atmosphere, complete with cozy furnishings and lots of patterns for visual interest. I especially love the fabric on the dining chairs...and that beaded chandelier in the dining space. By Brooke Wagner Design

Please find enclosed two photos of my Siamese cat, named Lotus. She is sixteen years old and we live in a small village in Israel near Caesarea.

Dasher from Hartford Wis. on his West Elm sofa. 
- April

It seems I didn't take many photos this week of cats - I blame it on my hectic schedule. I did manage to capture this yesterday morning while I was lying in bed surrounded by cats. Former feral Frankie is such a big baby when he's sleepy in bed with us. It's the only time he'll basically go near us. He's an odd character. 

Also, not pets on furniture but I had to share some of my favourite photos from our visit last weekend to the Country Cat Sanctuary

And thanks to Korin for the reminder about this oldie but goodie.


Slot House

I love the verticality of this modern extension to a Georgian terrace house. Renovations in the 1980s had left the floorplan confused and ceilings lowered. By inserting a glass infill between the narrow back wing of the house and the neighbour's wall the ground floor now has a soaring double height ceiling while a master suite is reached by an open tread staircase. Slot house by London-based architectural firm Studio Octopi.

A renovated farmhouse in South Africa

This is a beautiful 1840's Cape Dutch farmhouse located in South Africa. I am totally smitten with its neutral decor and all the wood floors and beamed ceilings throughout. I could go on about it but I am slightly drunk (I'm writing this Saturday night) having spent a few hours hanging out at a Legion with some of my favourite people on this planet and it's got me thinking (I clearly don't drink much). I have a love affair with interior design (also pretty clear as Jo and I have had this blog for over 10 years) but this past week has really done a number on me. Hanging out at the Country Cat Sanctuary last Sunday whilst managing not to bring home any cats and staying late at work every day this past week with each day being more hellish than the next, and managing to find time on Wednesday evening to go see Kedi at the movie theatre which, being the crazy cat lady that I am, really moved me, and going to a vintage show yesterday and finally leaving 5 hours later where I got to meet some awesome new people (and one vendor I was hoping to visit with was at the hospital with a bleed in her brain) and spend some quality time having drinks with the always fabulous ladies of social enterprise HighJinx whose lives are devoted to helping just makes me stop and think about the important things in life. I am grateful for this blog and this community and my passion for design. So enjoy these wonderful photos of Herbertsdale Farmhouse, and I hope it inspires you. Via VISI. (Photos: Jan Ras)
