I am on day 4 of moving to my new house and I am so freaking exhausted. Next time I will hire some damn movers. It hurts to type for crissakes. It is Sunday night as I get these posts ready the only furniture in my new house so far is my desk and chair so I can blog. Am I dedicated to this blog or what? :) Anyway, enough bitching from me. I came across the portfolio of Atlanta interior designer/art director/graphic designer Carl Mattison and this home struck a cord with me as it has some very similar features to my new home (stained glass, lots of squared edge moldings, tall ceilings...). I would kill for those floors though, and for my woodwork to be white instead of mahogany stain.
If you'd 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!
This was our 3 months (now 4 months) old Bengal cat Mats. I think he and the Eames chair compliment one another
My regal beagle, Pippa, likes to pose (and sleep) on estate sale finds.

This is Laranja (Orange in Portuguese) an almost three years old rescued Spanish Galgo (Greyhound) sitting on a friend's vintage wing chair that was also rescued but from the curb and then upholstered in a bright red. Laranja wasn't forced to sit this way. She just loves to show off by sitting like a queen!

If life was fair you'd find me here. Relaxing. Reading perhaps or just deep in conversation with a friend. Instead you find me staring at my computer green with envy. That's what a great photo can do. Image by Richard Powers.
