Attic apartment

I adore this apartment. Designed by b-arch (Jo blogged this firm recently here and here), this was formerly the attic and kitchen spaces of an eighteenth-century building renovated to make an open-space loft. I love the stairs (although not to code by Canadian standards), the flat file cabinet, the globe collection, the huge sign in the kitchen, the LIGHT BLUE SMEG!!!, colourful tomato cans, Jielde light fixture (I have 2 of those!), huge vintage map as a headboard. And then there's all the white...and those floors....

Love this small kitchen

When living space is tight there is no reason not to live big. It just takes clever solutions. A sleek, almost sculptural solution to open plan living with kitchen in plain view. Hide it way but celebrate the deception. Love this little black and white kitchen by double g.

Briggs Edward Solomon

Elegant, uncluttered, luxurious and deceptively simple. A limited palette of colour and a limitless wealth of talent. Distilled form and layers of texture, old married to new and always luxury, simple almost unadorned beauty. Welcome to the portfolio of Briggs Edward Solomon.

Catherine Ledner

I could use a break from a dreary Monday, and lose myself in some beautiful interior photos. I'm thinking these from LA-based photographer Catherine Ledner will be a great little pick-me-up.

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, the photo must be of decent quality. If it's dark or fuzzy (from a camera phone) 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!

I've been following the Pets on Furniture from the beginning (I commented on the very first post!).  My golden retriever, Baxter, wound up in the second post, which I guess became the start of the Pets on Furniture series that I love. 
We usually don't let him on furniture, but he somehow knows that when we stay at a dog friendly hotel (we're big fans of the Kimpton brand), he's allowed on the furniture.  My husband took me to DC for my birthday last weekend and we weren't surprised when Baxter helped himself to one of the chairs in our room at the Donovan House hotel.

Breeze, my 7 year old tabby cat when he's not sleeping or eating carpet he enjoys spending time on one of his many favorite chairs in the apartment.

This is the family room of a home we renovated and designed in the Hollywood Hills. As our photographer was about to snap a photo of this room, the owner's dog decided to hop on the sofa and take center stage. Afterwords, we realized he really drove home the point of Timothy's design philosophy: "Comfortable Elegance" means really being able to live in a beautiful space without worries about spilling drinks, kids or pets. Believe it or not, much of the furniture in this lovely family room is actually slipcovered in outdoor fabric for this very reason!
