Annette Ekjord

Annette Ekjord is an interior designer and stylist based in Oslo, Norway whose clients include Ikea and many of my favourite Scandinavian magazines such as Sköna Hem, Hus & Hem, Bo Bedre and Vtwonen. I am in need of a bit of a dose of scandi and white today, so join me with a deep breath and a great big *SIGH*.

Karl Anderson +1

Swimming in saturated colour. Shining with bright, white light. I've said it before ad I'll say it again. I have a photographer crush. I'm not flighty though. I've admired photographer Karl Anderson's work since I first featured him here. Beautiful, rich shots at the same time light and buoyant. Don't you just find yourself saying "wanna wanna wanna walk right in."

Monday's pets on furniture - part 2

If you'd like to send us photos to include in next week's "pets on furniture" post, please ensure your photos follow our 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. Thanks! (Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to  desiretoinspirekim@hotmail.com and PLEASE don't send closeups of your pet!)

This is our new 15-week old French Bulldog, Luna, on our bed (where she really isn't allowed yet)...I love her smushed-nose profile. =)

This is Jimmy! I work for an interior design store and my employer recently had her home photographed. She couldn’t leave her bud Jimmy out of the pictures!!

I'm sending some photos of Miroslav, my adopted hyperactive stray cat. I think he has a thing for design chairs because he's always chilling on our Eames or on our Sergio Rodrigues inspired... Here's a capture of one of these downtempo moments!

Only the most grandiose piece of furniture in the house will do for my Papillon, Dita.

This is "Bebis" who moved with me across the ocean, from Toronto to Istanbul.

I do hope Peggy the miniature schnauzer from Glasgow can make the cut in out nursery!

Summer school

Mary Beth Koeth is spending the quarter in Oslo assisting a photographer.  A talented, professional snapper herself she has gone to "summer school". With are four other students Mary Beth stayed in this adorable summer home in the forest at Nesodden. As she explains, "Robert Kristiansen who owns the home did such a lovely job decorating it. Before everyone unpacked, I went around to each room, styled it and then photographed it." Such a simply lovely way to spend the summer. Beautiful, evocative shots.
