Caroline Davis

Posted on Mon, 23 Sep 2013 by KiM

Caroline Davis lives in the U.K. and is a mom with 2 kids and 6 pets who happens to be a fantastic interior stylist (one of the coolest jobs on the planet, IMHO). She is passionate about design and colour, with a true love of all things eclectic, from vintage and modern to mid-century. This passion and love are evident in her work. I love the photo above – what a cute idea to draw the flowers that should be.

Monday’s pets on furniture

Posted on Mon, 23 Sep 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, if the photo is 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!

This is Bertie’s favourite spot.

this is Egon. he’s a french bulldog puppy and is 12 weeks old. he sleeps most of the day!
– Sara (vienna, austria)

Our white lab, Hunter, loves to snuggle in the pillows on the love seat in our family room. (His nickname is “Rooster”.)

This is Alley-oop on her favorite Homecrest wire chair

My Yorkie Poo Zulu relaxing on my awesome red couch that I scored at a ReStore store for a great deal. it fit right into my red decor and Zulu loves it!
Joy (Virginia)

This is Lucy. She is the most lovable wild little thing ever.  I was photographing the fabric on my chair so that I could reorder, as Lucy had pretty much destroyed my favorite polka dot wing chairs.  Unfortunately Stroheim and Romann discontinued the fabric, but we were left with these darling shots of Lucy. 
– Diana 

Pumpkin and Sunny – Ibizan Hounds
– Lisa Puskas (St Pete Beach, FL)

This is our black rescued cat Mafalda! She’s sitting over our handmade mini-shelf, I like it ’cause you can only see her deep yellow eyes…
– Mariana (Brazil) 

My cat Tarcin, which means cinnamon.

Because I’m blown away by photographer Giorgio Possenti‘s portfolio.

Giorgio Possenti

Posted on Mon, 23 Sep 2013 by midcenturyjo

I am often asked whether I get bored with the images and spaces that cross my path everyday. The answer is no. There is always something, someone that makes me stop, take measure and smile. Yes. That is beautiful. Like the soft, silvery light that plays across the portfolio of Italian photographer Giorgio Possenti, the geometry of the modern and minimalist spaces he photographs repeated in his images or the way he uses focus to heighten the audience’s anticipation.

Vallée de Joux house

Posted on Sun, 22 Sep 2013 by KiM

Here is another house designed by Swiss architect Ralph Germann that I received lots of big juicy photos of. This one like the one I blogged Friday is another take on a modern cabin so I’m totally smitten right off the bat. I have always been intrigued by homes with odd shaped windows placed unconventionally, and the windows in this home are just that. I love that some are low and horizontal (perfect in a bedroom so you have a great view from the bed), and others tall and narrow only providing a glimpse of the scenery beyond.
