Stalking a smart apartment

Posted on Tue, 26 May 2015 by midcenturyjo

Actually I’m stalking an apartment by Smart Design Studio but in another incarnation. You’ll see the original styling of the apartment by the architect a few photos done but what is listed is another owner’s take on the space. Not quite as dramatic (or perhaps it’s the difference in photographers, the double images are from the architect’s website) this softer, whiter version still showcases the clever layout of this studio apartment in Potts Point, Sydney. Link here while it lasts.

If you would like to participate in the Monday’s pets on furniture series please send photos, your name, location and a brief description to kim[@]desiretoinspire[.]net. Thanks!

Scarlet the cat has expensive taste for a former stray. Her favorite perch is the boucle fabric on our Diamond Chair. 

Rosie the 3 year old Australian Shepherd is allowed wherever she wants in our house, with the exception of table surfing! We could all learn a thing or two about how to get totally comfortable from our pets.
Cara (Tacoma, WA)

We have a 10 week old goldendoodle named Daisy. I work from home and getting anything done now involves planning around her naps! We are in love.
– Julia (Charlotte, NC) (we chat all about her here!)

1 – feli and kasimir at their favorite winter spot in front of the radiator, kasimir on a 1920s chair from my husband’s grandparents.
2 – feli on an eames rocking chair she normally doesn’t like because of  the rocking. the cosy blankets seemed to do the trick.
3 – kasimir occupying my eames working chair in my sewing room. trying to stop me from sewing and feed him instead 😉
– Heike (Graz, Austria)

Thanks again for posting MoSmitty’s photo last month. It’s a pic of Mo’s bro Dexter Buster. The photo is mostly a collection of rugs: a vintage multi-hued Flokati, a vintage Moroccan Berber and tri-colored cowhide, plus the base of a burl wood footstool and Dexter (the dog who looks like a Flokati) in our tiny cabin.
– Donna (d of dogland)

This is my 14-year-old cat Charlie, who rescued me when he was 6 years old.  On weekend mornings, Charlie and I hang out on this chaise lounge from Ikea and enjoy a pot of coffee, and birdwatching.

This is Jada a friends dog who is having a sleepover.

Lounge – to pass time idly and indolently, to rest or recline indolently, to loll, a sofa for reclining, a place for sitting, waiting. Want to come join me for a coffee and a long gossip in the Guest Lounge at London’s  Artist Residence?
