Rough luxe

Rough luxe. Textures. Old world glamour. Drama. Glamour. The spaces created by architect and designer Rabih Hage, whether hotels or residences, are pure understated luxury. They are simply art.

Monday’s pets on furniture

Posted on Mon, 22 Jun 2015 by KiM

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!

For your lovely Monday’s pets on furniture series: these are Lajka, our 1 year old mixed breed rescue dog lounging on the garden sofa, and Polka, our 6 year old British Shorthair under furniture, and doing some thinking on the cool bathroom floor.

This is my Australian Shepherd, Huck. We live in Dallas, Texas, USA. Huck’s favorite pastimes include chasing squirrels and barking at postal workers.

And some from me. Feral kitty Georgie spends most of her time hiding out in the basement (so sad) but when the husband and I spent a few hours down there over the weekend organizing our junk, she snuck upstairs and spent the rest of the afternoon sunning herself in the living room. Then I found Bernie (not so feral now!) snoozing on the sofa (first time I caught him up there). Friday I left work early with stomach troubles, and I had company the entire time from my spot on the sofa (Lucky and Bernie).

Culture Clash

Posted on Mon, 22 Jun 2015 by midcenturyjo

There’s so much to like about this space. The drama of a narrow, tall room. The dark grasscloth walls. The bookshelves around the TV. The long comfy couch stuffed with softly karate chopped ethnic textile cushions. The French hang. That rug. Those plants in the window.The sophisticated euro modern meets tribal meets industrial mid century with taxidermy overkill. Culture Clash, a NY bachelor pad by Workshop/APD.

When can I move in?!

Posted on Sun, 21 Jun 2015 by KiM

I really love my house in the city. But I sometimes get tired of hearing city buses whizzing by, or helicopters coming in for a landing (I live right across the street from a hospital). This old rectory in the UK is an absolute delight, and I would pack up and move here in an instant. The kitchen and huge butlers pantry are so utterly perfect I am having heart palpitations.
