J+R Katz

Jonathan and Renee Katz are the duo behind Vancouver firm J+R Katz Architecture & Design. They strive to create spaces that are elegant, vibrant and livable. Their work is so top notch that I imagine many of the homeowners never want to sell. I sure as hell wouldn't if any of these homes were mine.

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! 

This is our English Bull dog Watson on my DIY Barnboard bed, he's getting to big to lift but we didn't want that to stop him from cozying up on the bed, the solution-stairs!
- Kourtney 

This is Cleo, our lone tortie, sitting in a refurbished Eames rocker purchased at the Brooklyn Flea years ago. Cleo also has a second favorite chair, too - an orange Douglas fiberglass chair.
- Jesse & Jason (Brooklyn, NY)

This is Vida. She's our 10 year-old black lab, Australian shepherd, pit bull and husky. She is not allowed on the couch, but she snuck up there the other day. She appeared very confident and comfortable, so we got some cute pictures! 
- Victoria & Monte (San Francisco, CA)

Here are Pompeii, a shelter cat, and my roommate's cat Winston, who was found abandoned as a too tiny kitten on a 115°+ degree day in Phoenix. My chair seems to be their favorite spot all of a sudden, apart or apparently together.
- Emily 

Favourite place for my Tom is the kitchen. It's a real gourmand cat! It loves keep an eye on our activities... waiting for a small oversight!
- Paola (Italy)

When you don't mind the graffiti

When does your real estate agent beg you not to paint over the graffiti on the side of your house? When it's good, really good. An otherwise unremarkable house for sale in Collingwood, Melbourne with artwork by DOES, Adnate and Sirum. Link here while it lasts.

Palm Springs

Close your eyes and imagine the quintessential Palm Springs pad. Low lines and clean lines. White and bright. Hard and cool. Glass and grass. Glitz and golf. Midcentury and modern. Pool and so so cool. With both feet in a glamorous past take a leap into the future. Spring. Palm Springs. The Eldorado Residence by Emily Summers Design Associates.

Summer forever

I wish summer would last forever. To sit here at my computer with the window open and listen to the birds, traffic (LOL), and enjoy the cool breeze. To see green outside instead of white and brown. I could just move into a traditional Mediterranean villa such as this one and all would be right with the world. (I would have to add a bit of black and more modern and industrial touches to it though). Via Micasa.
