hoo...I'm home

hoo.
home of one, one of a kind.

Some say, "There is no place like home". We prefer "There is no place like your home". After all,
where else can you feel truly at ease when you step through the door and breathe out......
"hoo... I'm home."

hoo is an interior design firm based in Hong Kong, founded in 2009 by YC Chen ~~~ creating one-of-a-kind HAUTE COUTURE homes. I have to admit that this description took me by surprise. I don't really see these spaces as that one-of-a-kind, and they are not at all what I would imagine when I hear the words haute couture. That being said, I really like what he is doing, which I would think is not your average style for Hong Kong. It is modern, almost minimal, and has alot of Scandinavian notes. Throw in some Serge Mouille & Jieldé lights, some caramel leather, some sleek Scandi furniture and I am a happy camper.

A remodel in the Hollywood Hills

I love this house, the latest project by Hunter Kenihan of Kenihan Development (a privately held boutique real estate development firm that specializes in residential property in Los Angeles). I featured a couple of Hunter's projects in the past (here and here) and this 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home in the Hollywood Hills is another fantastic remodel and perfectly styled home for a quick sale. The grey, black and white colour scheme is modern and classy, the double sided fireplace rocks, and as usual, I am in love with the bathroom tiles. More details can be found here

Monday's pets on furniture

If you would like to send me photos to include in next week's pets on furniture post, please ensure your photos follow these basic rules: First, the pet must be on a piece of furniture. And said piece of furniture must be clearly visible in the photo, so it takes center stage rather than your pet. Think of it more of a photo of a great piece of furniture that you want to show off...and your pet happens to be sitting on it. And second, if the photo is too dark or unfocused it may not make the cut. Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to kim[at]desiretoinspire[dot]net. Thanks!

Here's my 4.5 year old rescue, Leroy. He's 100% purebred littlewhitedog. We have a pair of these chairs and recycled kilim pillows. He has claimed them all, along with every sunny spot in our condo in San Francisco.

I'm sending you a couple of better pics of our showroom Charles and Ray Eames lounge chair with our cute brown Galgo Espanol Ada and our Black Grayhound Twiggy.

This is my cat Henry, lounging on an Eames knockoff that I found on Craigslist several years ago. It's his favorite place to hangout and look handsome.
