Surfers House

Posted on Tue, 26 Feb 2013 by midcenturyjo

Surf’s up and so is my pulse. Beautiful white boxes punctuated by large expanses of glass, the house is by Sweden’s Arkitektstudio Widejdal Racki (work completed while the firm was Arkitektstudio WRB). Open it up to the beautiful site or close it up and shelter inside when wild weather rolls in. Casual, stylish and perfect for a surfing weekend. What am I saying? Just surfing? You would find me just sitting on the patio being hypnotised by the ever changing sea.

I know you have popped by because you wanted to get your daily dose of interior eye candy. Well, I have got just the thing for you….some really neat spaces by a very talented photographer from Denmark, Stine Heilmann.

Monday’s pets on furniture

Posted on Mon, 25 Feb 2013 by KiM

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 then it may not make the cut. Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to desiretoinspirekim@hotmail.comand PLEASE don’t send closeups of your pet! Thanks!

***FYI: I am on holidays down south so there won’t be a pet post next week but keep the entries coming and POF will be back the following week. Thx!

This is Emu. We have so many pictures of her, on so many pieces of furniture, so it was hard trying to decide which to send.

Bijou, our chocolate miniature pinscher, loves all of our craigslist furniture. This picture caught her on a Sunday morning right after she finished skyping all of her boyfriends.

pet: “otti” – puggle 4 years old perched on top of the bed, all linens by frette under a painting by renowned  artist, hillary burnett, titled “the lady”

I couldn’t resist sending you these photos of our cat Jake. He’s an old boy now, and he always finds the most comfy places to hang out. 

After refurbishing a mid-century lamp, I was taking reveal photos of the lamp next to our lovely worn leather couch, and a few of our favorite items, when Grey-dog made his way into the picture.

Another sneaky peek at Freedom‘s latest collection in store from today. Thanks Freedom for sending along  this pic of the Casper dining table. Cool, modern, sleek. Like the lighting too. Must jump on the website and see what it is.
