Stalking in my dreams

Speechless! Want, need, want, can't have. I love this Paddington terrace. LOVE. From the exterior colour to the quirky touches inside, the white and the colour, the artwork and those Achille Castiglioni Diablo Rise and Fall Lamps. Don't get me started on the furniture! Love. Way out of my price range but this girl will be having pleasant dreams tonight of a make believe life in this beauty. Here while the link lasts.

Ditte Isager

Ditte Isager is my idol. She's an extraordinaire photographer whose work has been featured in all the decent shelter magazine out there. She's pratically a household name. And her photos magical. She takes advantage of the light and shadows like no other. See for yourself:

Leibowitz and McLachlan

   

Is it really two and a half years since I first featured Australian interior design duo Leibowitz and McLachlan? Time for another visit and as you would expect from such a talented pair there are lots more lovely rooms on their website. It's a casual elegance, muted colours, natural finishes, antiques with contemporary pieces. It's stylish and crisp but light and feminine. I love their children's rooms ... so soft and pretty. As for those kitchens, it's straight to my inspiration files.

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...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 can be sent to desiretoinspirekim@hotmail.com and PLEASE don't send me closeups of your pet!!!)

"This is a picture of our Bichon Frisé, Elvis.  We rescued Elvis a few months ago and since he’s been with us, it appears he’s been trying to make up for the lost time!  He’s a feisty little boy and loves to jump onto our bed and attack our pillows as soon as we turn away.  Of course, when we’re looking, he likes to sit pretty and pretend he’s a gentleman, as if saying “Pillows, what pillows?”.  This photo was taken by our very talented wedding photographers Davina + Daniel on a casual Sunday afternoon."

"this is gizmo.. do pillows count as furniture?? :)"
- J. Formoso

"This is our little princess, Gwen. She's a one year old Boston Terrier and lives up to the breed's reputation. She's a big cuddler and when either myself or my husband are not around, she settles for our couch pillows. Such a cutie!"
- Melissa

"It's hard to narrow down my choices as my two boxers LOVE the furniture and they always sleep in crazy positions, but this is by far my favorite. Taken the first week we had Millie home. At 9 weeks old, she couldn't even barely get up on the sofa and I guess trying so hard wore her out. She slept like that for a good 30mins and boxers are notorious for their snoring."
"Here are 2 more to check out.One is a better shot of the room, but it looks almost as if they are trying to blend in. Hehe. Maybe if I don't see them they won't have to go in their crates when I leave. :)"
- Katherine

"Oscar, one of your many kitties, peeking over a 10th century Cambodian statue of the Hindu god Shiva"
- Caroline

"Well, we've added to our family- meet Pickle! But Pickle here was mighty jealous when she found out Pepper & Skitchman had BOTH been featured on Pets On Furniture, so she decided to do some posing of her own & wanted me to share with you. Here she is on our newly painted guest-bed."
- Tess

"Here's a couple submissions of my beagle mix Charley on my Luna high-back chair"
- Megan

"Here is Mickey and Pumpkin getting ready for bed..."
- Danielle

"If somebody thinks that cats and dogs don’t live in harmony, it’s time to stop watching Looney Tunes cartoon. My black cat Otylia and Frota the airedale terrier dog spend all day together. Sometimes Frota thinks that she is like a cat and climbs high on my flat furniture. Now, they are sitting on yellow commode in front of a tree, which I made from a stripped birch-tree. That decorative tree  I tried to transform my wall, where I will soon hang pictures. Best wishes from Poland!"
- Maggie

"
Here in France we have Pets on furniture too…His  name is Frikadel from the blog: Frikadel and Co The table was handmade just for us with real wood (oak) and old metal to fit our floor it look like a vintage one but it isn't."
- Isabelle

"Attached is a few pictures of my awesome havanese named Hudson. He is laying on my sofa in a living room which is his favorite spot!"

"Stretch and Raymond (aka Buddy) here, with some pics from our cool San Francisco loft ..."

"Raymond is more into modernism..."

"...  while Stretch likes it a bit more eclectic:"

"When we are not lounging in our cool pad, we are busy campaigning against cancer."
- Julia

"This is Luigi, my little Pom. He definitely is spoiled, as you can see!"
- Andrea

"I'm attaching the picture of our turkish dog Yakamoz (his name means in Turkish "reflection of the moon on the sea") on our antique armchair..."
- Marie-France

"This is my first time submitting to Pets on Furniture, and granted, the chickens arent usually allowed in the house, but it is 40 deg C in Perth today and they are only five weeks old.  I put them in the lounge room in a crate and my almost four year old son decided they might like to watch tv.  What the...!! I know you dont like close ups but I did include one as they are so little they were a bit hard to see on the chair, which by the way was a junk shop find we had covered in a fantstic Osborne and Little fabric.  It perfectly matches the arches in our Moorish styed house.  The brown chicken is an Isa Brown named Dodo, she is very sweet, the grey-ish one is a Lavender Arucana named Zia (the eggs that she will eventually lay will be blue) and the black one is a Silkie named Lice (yes, like head lice but that is what said almost four year old insists egg yolks are called)."

"This was taken on the first snowfall of the year.  Henry LOVES snow and if he's not playing in it, he's watching it fall.  Even though he knows he's not allowed on the furniture he couldn't resist the view out the window from our chair."
- Danielle

"This here is my cat, Hollis. He loves a good Nelson bench."
- Sue

"We rescued our 2-year-old Lab, Dublin, about 4 months ago and it didn't take long for her to settle in and make herself at home on our comfy couches. The dog hair started to get outta control so we put down some soft fleece for her to lay on. She's so comfy that at times when she actually lays down on the floor it seems odd!"
- Karen and Jake

"This is Bean, our 2 year old Boston Terrier, on her very own recliner. The chair was a gift from her dog-grandparents. She was a little nervous about it at first, but soon made it a nice napping place."
- Jen & Ron

"Here's a picture of Max (L) & Maggie (R) sitting on our wicker furniture."
- Scott

"I think what he was trying to say is "Are you serious?" When I kindly asked Fletcher to remove his doggie self from the chair I just finished re-doing, either that or "Get lost lady" I'm not sure..."
- Tobi

"Spot the cat."
- Catherine

"i'd like to bring to your attention my pets on furniture - or rather, my pets on Doofs!! Mika is the Shih-Tzu and Disco is the tabby.  unfortunately, Disco passed away recently from a third-storey fatal fall. we were devastated :(  however, we hope his legacy can live on through these images."
