Who let the dogs out?

Posted on Wed, 22 Jul 2009 by midcenturyjo

It only takes one dog on a chair photo to unleash more beasts. Yes we have a dog on a bed, a dog who is almost on the bed and on a chair and a dog doing its best to absorb a chair.

Kelly Planer sent in this gorgeous photo of a dog on a bed (she swears a bed is as legitimate as a chair for the sake of these posts). Is it yours Kelly? You never said. I hope he/she is because that is one sweet puppy!

Linda from Lime in the Coconut was inspired enough to send in this quaint portrait of Bo the great Dane trying out her newly revamped garage sale find. A perfectly big chair suddenly disappears! See more here.

And in the original post Jeannine from Small and chic in Cville left a comment linking to her flickr photos of Baxter at work and at play (that’s his hotel room!). Such sweet dogs and complete hams!

I came across the website of the Tripod Agency recently and was instantly mesmerized. It’s a photo agency based in Paris that documents the work of designers and architects through the photography of Xavier Bejot and Franck Tomps. Such fabulously eclectic spaces captured so beautifully.

I’m more and more drawn to photographers who find the beauty in the everyday, the extraordinary in the ordinary. These are fabulous real spaces, the homes of real people and photographer Tara Donne brings them to life. It’s an eye she honed at magazines such as Domino and Real Simple as well as Martha Stewart. It’s like I’m in my friend’s house and she has just left the room. Time to snoop around and be inspired by her effortless style. Fabulous portfolio!

Dog on a chair!

Where oh where are the dogs on the chairs? Remember when Kim and I were obsessed with dogs (and cats) on chairs and sofas, beds and just about any type of furniture? Marissa in Chicago remembered and sent us this fab photo of Jack, the dog, on a yellow Knoll that neighbors were throwing away. Hello Jack you gorgeous thing and hellooooo yellow chair! Throwing away?!! Thanks Marissa these photos are so cute!

John Loecke

I was excited to come across the portfolio of John Loecke, an amazingly talented interior designer, and as it turns out Jo blogged about his work quite some time ago. But there is sooooo much more to see so here’s another peek into the “frisky, fabulous and fun to be around” world of John Loecke. It’s all about colour, patterns, and more colour. And no beige.
