Two downtown NY apartments. One for the brother. One for the sister. Both by John Beckmann of Axis Mundi. One wham bam glam. The other restrained elegance. Brother. Sister. Both unique and chic.

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!)

*** A huge thanks to all of you who answered my request for more pet entries for today. If some of you are wondering why your photos aren't included, I received so many I had to save some for next week.

My new handmade walnut bed from a wonderful Etsy artisan, against a chocolate wall (my first foray into bold color) and Minnie - my 19 year old geriatric kitty - in her Queen of the Hill mode. The old and the new, merging beautifully.

Here is our giant Siberian cat Lucas on his favorite chair, where you can find him most of the time. He loves to relax.

This is Pixel the Weimaraner trying out our brand new bed! We have just completed renovating our 1920s townhouse and are slowly filling it in with furniture. The bed is our own design made to order for us, and we love it! It is great for leaning on to relax and reading a book in the evening.

This is the feline love of my life, Minnie. She passed away in August and all the pictures I have of her seem to be closeups, these are the most zoomed out I have. I made her a bed out of a cola crate to keep her from sleeping on my hands and keyboard while I worked. First picture is the trial run where she was slightly suspicious, second picture she was madly in love with it.

Cool

Just when I think I am over the Ghost chair I see a cool photo and I forgive this poor chair for being everywhere. Photographer Virginia MacDonald does it again.

Hallie Burton

From earthy brick to gleaming white sanctuaries, from high end to high on style, if it's a gorgeous room then Hallie Burton has probably photographed it. No wonder her work appears in the leading magazines around the world. Beautiful soft light, interesting angles and a great feel for the space. Love. She was one of the first photographers I blogged about back in 2007 and it was wonderful to revisit her portfolio to find so many more stunning shots.
