Monday's pets on furniture

If you'd like to send me photos to include in next week's "pets on furniture" post, please ensure your photos follow my 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 dark or fuzzy then it may not make the cut. Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to desiretoinspirekim@hotmail.com and PLEASE don't send closeups of your pet! Thanks!

Giorgio Possenti

I am often asked whether I get bored with the images and spaces that cross my path everyday. The answer is no. There is always something, someone that makes me stop, take measure and smile. Yes. That is beautiful. Like the soft, silvery light that plays across the portfolio of Italian photographer Giorgio Possenti, the geometry of the modern and minimalist spaces he photographs repeated in his images or the way he uses focus to heighten the audience's anticipation.

Vallée de Joux house

Here is another house designed by Swiss architect Ralph Germann that I received lots of big juicy photos of. This one like the one I blogged Friday is another take on a modern cabin so I'm totally smitten right off the bat. I have always been intrigued by homes with odd shaped windows placed unconventionally, and the windows in this home are just that. I love that some are low and horizontal (perfect in a bedroom so you have a great view from the bed), and others tall and narrow only providing a glimpse of the scenery beyond.

Saturday shortlist

Where have I been real estate stalking this week? Where haven't I! Want to come along and peer through the windows, climb the stairs, open the cupboards and turn the taps on and off? I've been all over my usual hunting ground realestate.com.au to find just a few properties. Click on the images for the links and more pictures.
