Monday's pets on furniture - part 1

If you'd like to send me photos to include in next week's "pets on furniture" post, please ensure your photos follow my 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, the photo must be of decent quality. If it's dark or fuzzy (from a camera phone) then it may not make the cut. Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to desiretoinspirekim@hotmail.com and PLEASE don't send closeups of your pet! Thanks!

His name is Anubis, and he's a long haired dachshund.  In this photo he is visiting my mother-in-laws house and loves it because she has a lot of beautiful chairs for him to feel like a tall dog on!

Here is Pearl (boxer bulldog cross), our beautiful rescue dog. We adopted her & she adopted the eames lounger, her favourite place to sleep! 
This Pearl's BFF Rocky (boxer). He is always sleeping on the furniture with his tongue hanging out!

- Beth & Vince (Oakville, On)

Although the quality of this photo could be better, it is of our beloved Bailey whom we were forced to say goodbye to last week. She loved to sneak into the guest room and make herself at home with the pillows for a snooze. We miss her dearly and the house is too empty without her.

Secret garden

A secret garden by Secret Gardens. An inner city oasis. A haven from the hustle and bustle. Lush and stylish. Can you believe this is in Potts Point, Sydney? It's a hideaway, a respite, a little slice of heaven in the city.

Dar Kawa

A few steps from the spice market in the Marrakech's medina is the home of stylist, art director and designer Valérie Barkowski. Dar Kawa, a riad overflowing with style and a timelessness. Authentic with a twist. A modern take on the historic. A perfect escape in an exotic locale.

A new book

I got my hands on a new book recently so I thought I'd do a review of it today for you all. It's called Cupcakes and Cashmere by Emily Schuman, and it is based on her lifestyle blog, which I happen to have been reading daily for at least a year now. This book is only somewhat related to interior design but I quite enjoyed it so I thought I'd feature it with photos of the more design-y topics. :)  Cupcakes and Cashmere includes DIY projects, organization tips, party-planning ideas, beauty how-tos, and delicious recipes for food and cocktails (a few I want to try ASAP). It's separated into seasonal chapters, and within each Emily divulges her signature “Five Things” relating to beauty, style, at home, and food & entertaining. You can purchase the book at Amazon, Abrams and Barnes & Noble. Here's a little peek (of course I had to include a photo I found at the back of the book of her 2 cats).

Stalking on a Saturday

In bed with a bad cold. Great way to spend the weekend .... actually it is a great way to spend the weekend. Sleep, hot cups of tea and ignoring the chores. So I'm being lazy and posting a stalking piece. Mind you it is a wonderful early 70s house by Robin Boyd brought sympathetically into the 21st century. Link here while it lasts. Dear hubby could you make me a hot whiskey? I'm sure it would work a treat on this cold.
