Janel Holiday

If you don't already love mid-century interiors, you are going to by the time you get to the end of this post. These spaces by San Francisco interior designer Janel Holiday are perfectly executed and feature pieces from all of the best mid-century designers like Verner Panton, Charles/Ray Eames, George Nelson, Philippe Starck, Harry Bertoia, Eero Saarinen and many more. Bold graphics and colours, stunning light fixtures, collections displayed without being tacky, and the best pets on furniture photo I have seen in a while. What's not to love?!

Monday's pets on furniture

If you would like to send me photos to include in next week's pets on furniture post, please ensure your photos follow these 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 too dark or unfocused it may not make the cut. Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to kim[at]desiretoinspire[dot]net. Thanks!

This is some photos of our loveable rescue pup Willow. She is a rather spoilt pup but normally isn't allowed on the couch! I couldn't resist getting a shot of her in our recently redecorated lounge room. She is sitting under a piece of art I got from Ideal Art, a company that is local to us.

Blue light

Speaking of perfection ... sigh. Like swimming in a sea of blue light. From the portfolio of Dutch photographer Alexander van Berge.


A church conversion in Byron Bay

I am taking a quick kitchen-painting break to share this beautiful church conversion in Byron Bay with you. It was featured on the lovely Citizens of the World and is the home of Amanda Callan, Andrew Morris, their son and their side project Church Farm General Store. I absolutely love this conversion. The original windows are gorgeous, the space does not read too much like a church, and they did not modernize it (which often happens and the results typically fail miserably). It is perfect. More details and photos (by Dominic Loneragan) are here

Working on a Saturday

It's become my mantra. If you have to drag your sorry arse into work on the weekend then it better be somewhere fabulous. Egon Zehnder's Melbourne offices by IF Architecture.
