Land of the long white cloud

New Zealand ... a spectacularly beautiful land. Which raises the question, if you live in a stunning setting what do you do with your house design? Do you give up and live in a nondescript building because it is all too hard? Do you go at it all guns blazing hoping to beat those goddamn majestic mountains down to size, show 'em who is boss or do you do what architects Sumich Chaplin have achieved with this Central Otago home? Build a strong, sympathetic building that celebrates its surroundings yet sits solidly, and peacefully, on the site.

Lampe Gras

We don't often feature products on the blog but when the company includes photos as fabulous as these of their products "in situ" I have to share. These make me want to buy TOUTES LES LAMPES. Lampe Gras. Possibly overtaking my love of the Jielde.

A lady's boudoir

Really I think everyone should have a boudoir. I know I do. And it's shouldn't just be the private escape of women. Let's extend the joy of having a "sulking room" to gentlemen as well. I need to up my boudoir game though to reach the heady decadence of this fabulous retreat designed by Patrick Mele.

Island House 

Pardon me please. I know it's only Tuesday. I know I shouldn't feel the need for a virtual getaway this early in the week. I should at least make it to hump day but I can't. I wish I could escape for real to this beautiful house right on the beach. Simple luxury, an amazing location on the isolated Indonesian island of Gili Meno just a fast boat from Bali, no cares or worries except for sand between the toes. Crusoe House via The Island Houses.

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! 


There’s so many people «in here» who share love and support for each other every day. It feels so good to give it, and to receive it, thanks. Bright sparkles are thrown around, and it does good ✨  We should all keep up being nice to each other, we all deserve it. And today I want to share some πŸ’• extra love πŸ’• for #styleithappy, and that is for the only person I’ve met who is not «just in here», but we’ve visited each other several times, and even our kids (and dogs!) are getting to know each other. It means a lot, and I’m so happy for my fab friend @nordic_by_maag!!!! πŸ‘‘πŸ’ŽπŸ’– This is one of the photos I captured at hers last week, and I just had to share one with Lilou on it, she’s adorable too! More from the visit in my #newblogpost at VILLABETULA.COM, welcome to stylish Maria’s pad! - - #apartmenttherapy#interiorblogawards #thethriftedthrone  #designsponge#elledecor #boheminterior #iba17 #abigailahern #villabetula  #prettyvintage #momentsofmine #rsgstyle#earthinspiredhome #vogueliving #dtipetsonfurniture

School picnic today and even though it was 14 DEGREES (😱) we still sat outside. Came home and put the heating on πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‚ Just had a visit from the lovely @nicolabroughton38 who was very tolerant of my children who decided to a) pour orange juice in their hair and b) nearly kill each other, all during the time it took for Nicola to drink her tea πŸ™„ That's #instareality for you πŸ˜‘ PS: spot the kitten, the best behaved member of my family this evening πŸ’—#livingroom #art #gallerywall #gallery #sideboard #petsonfurniture #interior_design #interiorinspo #ikeaatmine #interiordetails #homeinspo #fairylights #apartmenttherapy #dslooking #sodomino #interior4all #elledecor #interiorinspiration #beautifulhomes #interiordecor #bohodecor #urbanjunglebloggers #jungalowstyle #plantgang #currentdesignsituation #whitewalls #instahome #interiors #myhomevibe
