A Brisbane apartment by Louise Walsh

More and more of us are living in inner city apartment blocks. Developers relentlessly build more and more of what are often striking buildings on the outside or in the foyer but the apartments themselves are often bland, cookie cutter spaces. Not this West End apartment in Brisbane by Louise Walsh. Edgy and urban, its rich earth tones, layered textures and tribal touches warm the rooms and add personality and style.

Not your average beach house

A joyous play on colour and pattern, vinatge and new, this MacMasters Beach home by Sydney-based Brett Mickan Interior Design is definitely not your typical beach house. Oh the clichéd nautical and fish motifs may make an appearance here and there but their presence is a tongue-in-cheek reference to holiday living by the sea. This house is all about family fun in the Aussie sun with a nod to your grandparents' beach shack from the 60s combined with modern, casual living.

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


๐Ÿถ I've been rather quiet lately. I haven't had the drive to keep up the good work in here. You know - life - it happens, and often I have a lot to deal with, more than I "need". Partly because my brain is "built like that" (not kiddin'). But other things is more like things everybody is dealing with, and today I feel ready to tell you that this lovely friend, our dog ๐Ÿ’– , passed away about three weeks ago. It was the right decision, but oh my it was much harder to see it happen than I thought. There was no way to stop those tears. We decided to get a vet to our house so he could die with no stress at home with us on his regular daily resting spot. I'm so glad we didn't take him to the vet on his last day, it would feel so wrong. One of those terrible choices you are forced to make when you have a pet. I love this photo of him, because every night (and just at night) he walked over to this plant and was standing with his head under the leaves looking totally meditative and in transe. Every night... - - #aquietstyle#botanicalpickmeup  #designsponge#villabetula #urbanjungle #greenliving #indoorgarden  #dtipetsonfurniture #boerboel #urbanjunglebloggers  #jungalowstyle

Here ...

...cooking up a storm while some of you perch on the barstools telling me stories about great dinners past or help lay the table. What are we playing on the sound system? Something to boom off those walls? Perfect. Tregoning House, Avalon Beach by Sydney-based architect Daniel Raymond.

Stalking a warehouse apartment

You can't get much closer to Sydney's CBD than Darlinghurst and That's where I'm stalking today. This is a suburb for the the über cool urbanites and those with deep pockets and I've found them the perfect apartment. No cookie cutter, slap dash, throw it up quick developer's "dream". There's nothing mass produced about the layout and the materials. I'm loving the kitchen and the master bedroom. You?  Link here while it lasts.
