Twig Hutchinson update

London-based interior stylist Twig Hutchinson has created some of the most memorable spaces that I've come across since Jo and I started this blog. The last photo (after the jump) has been a favourite of mine for ages and I thought it deserved a second posting. (See our first post of her work here). Twig emailed us to let us know she has updated her website so go have a peek. In the meantime, below are some magical and beautifully styled spaces that we haven't blogged before. So lovely!!! (Oh - I HAD to add the second-last photo. Guess why. :) )

David Hicks and a big juicy website

The one thing better than an amazing portfolio from one of Australia's top interior designers? A website that is so luscious and large format that the it does justice to the designs! It is a couple of years now since I first featured David Hicks' work on Desire to Inspire (young über talented Aussie not to be confused by the iconic and long passed British designer of the same name). A recent revisit and I was rewarded with such a feast for the eyes. The website is exquisite. Designers out there take note. Big and bold is best when it comes to showcasing your wares. I've included some shots I have used in the previous post because I just had to. I love them so much. Don't just stay here though. Click on over to David's website for an even better experience.

Monday's pets on furniture

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 me closeups of your pet!)

"Danny is our Aussie Shepherd X who shares my passion for bright colours and gorgeous (if not slightly over the top) furniture.  He loves our turquoise sofa just as much as I do!"
- Agata (Hamilton, On)

"Lily thinks she is the Queen of England and just loves to sit on her Ercol Evergreen throne where she can survey her kingdom. It's a hard life!"
- Cat and Matt (London, England)

"This is our Spoodle Maggie chilling out on our Ikea floral chair and leather lounge. She really doesn’t have that much to be sad about (it’s all for the camera)."
- D&J

"Here's my year-old kitty Yoni on 'his' sofa - you can see 'his' tree in the background, and his attempts to destroy the sofa (a hand-me-down from my parents) on the left. I made the cushions myself and the wool cloud rug (which he loves) is by Donna Wilson. Also a bonus photo of when he was smaller and used to hang out on the fireplace mantel."

Welcome to beyond paradise

I think I need a holiday. I have spent the past 2 days in bed with a migraine. Too much stress, too many deadlines, not enough time to breathe. I'm dreaming of running away to a piece of paradise somewhere special. Welcome Beyond hand picks the most beautiful and unique vacation properties around the world. I lost my heart in Florence on my first and only visit. A truly magnificent city and beautiful people (perhaps that is why I lost my heart!). My fantasy return involves this beautiful hotel, Riva Lofts. The trouble is there are too many stunning properties on Welcome Beyond's books as you will see when I share two more after the jump ...

Perhaps a new Sunday feature

Over the last couple days I was agonizing once again over what the heck I was going to do for today's Flickr Finds post. I was SO running out of ideas for those posts and these days I am finding that alot of photos on FLickr that I'd LOVE to use are download-disabled. I thought about instead doing a "weekly recap" - showcasing all of my favourite photos from the posts we had done the week prior. I'll give it a try this week and see how it goes (click on the photo to go to the post it was featured in).
