A country farmhouse inspired by Ibiza

Dream home people! DREAM. HOME. Built in 1900, this country farmhouse wasn't in terrible condition upon purchase two years ago it but was definitely in need of work, including full kitchen and master bathroom renovations. The original features of the house were preserved where possible: wood floors, fireplaces, and exposed structural beams in the kitchen are all put on display. New cement tile in the foyer along with natural stone tile floors in the kitchen were added. Inspired by the clean, rustic style typical of the architecture of Ibiza, the kitchen cabinets are custom-made tadelakt with reclaimed wood doors, both features enhancing the history of the home while allowing the comfortable, modern lines and light texture of NF Interiors signature style to sing. Moving upstairs, one of the bedrooms was reworked as a luxurious master bath, serving both bedrooms on the top floor. Custom plaster-finished walls, natural stone floors, and a marble and bronze vanity enhance the bucolic feeling of this serene sanctuary.

Inspiration comes from the most unlikely sources! A fabulous old chair, a silky smooth velvet dress or a wild exotic pattern can all spark an emotion. It is capturing that energy and excitement and transforming it, that Taupeology do best.

Dangar dalliance

Time to escape the everyday. Time for a virtual getaway. Perched on the slopes Dangar Island (in the Hawkesbury River just north of Sydney) is a mid century dream, a designer home in the Australian bush. Can you smell the eucalyptus and hear the continuous thrum of cicadas in the trees or are you all agog at the iconic furniture pieces sprinkled about the stylish interiors? I think we should stop imagining and go there in real life. The Dangar Island House, with interiors by Karen McCartney (design author and founding editor of Inside Out) is available for holiday rental. Start packing your bags.

Monday's pets on furniture (and an experience worth sharing)

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[at]desiretoinspire[dot]net, or hashtag your photos #DTIpetsonfurniture. Thanks!

This is my dearest Quin. She passed away recently at the age of 19. She loved this sofa and spent a lot of time lounging here.

This is Maisie. She was featured on Pets on Furniture once before, grooming herself in the dryer. In these 2 photos she is on ACTUAL furniture.
1 - she's taking her afternoon constitutional in our bedroom. She's barely left this spot (my side of the bed) since I added the chenille blanket a little over a week ago. Every night when I go to bed I find her here, and she gives me the same look you see in the photo: "Just try and make me move!"
2 -
Here she's checking out my newly organized desk drawer. Not really. Just thieving pencils again, one of her favorite pastimes when she isn't hogging the bed.
- Susan 

My cat Byron, 5 months old, sleeps on my desk all day. I work from home so I have a lot of conference calls, he sleeps through them all!
- Amanda

A couple from me. First one is Phoebe laying on the sofa while I was trying to take a photo of my new monstera plant. Second one is Lucky and former feral Bernie hanging out in the bedroom while I was photographing the gallery wall.
