Thank you Nathalie Priem for letting me feature your wonderful interior photography with our readers (including that beautiful pets on furniture entry). Nathalie has done alot of work for British real estate firm Domus Nova that Jo and I are huge fans of, and it turns out she has photographed the best properties they have had on their roster. These are some of my favourites of her work.

Monday’s pets on furniture

Posted on Mon, 20 Jul 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!

Photographer Nathalie Priem sent this photo in that she took one the other day during the course of a shoot 🙂

Attached is a picture of our 2 yr. old English setter/lab mix, Gracie, and Holly, our 10 month old butterscotch tabby on our antique Tibetan tea table repurposed as a bench.  They are the best of buddies and keep the local population of squirrels and bunnies on their toes.  Gracie was a rescue that had a long journey to us from New Mexico through Texas, and finally to Colorado.  Holly was rescued from a local shelter as a tiny kitten.

This is Tosia on my and her favourite armchair.
– Halszka (Włodzimierzów, Poland)

This is my male border mutt Daizy. I had fully intended to pick up a female at the local shelter, having viewed her online. But Daizy stole my heart and ended up with a girls name:) He likes to recline in his living area while I work from the office in the next room. 
– Malinda 

I’m sending you a couple of pictures of my adorable girls Chili( Persian) and Alma ( Yorkshire). Both of them love to rest in style, always on furniture:)
– Antoniades 

A couple from me. I was working at my desk in the living room Saturday, turned around and noticed 7 cats sprawled in various spots in the room with me. This photo captures 4 of them. The one on the far left if feral Bernie, and the one on the far right is feral Frankie. 🙂 The second photo is Felix, taking up most of the sofa. I found that vintage wool Department of National Defense blanket at the Ottawa Makers Market via Melting Plastic. The pillows on the left are by Fotofibre and on the right are by Kaya Kilims

A box

Posted on Mon, 20 Jul 2015 by midcenturyjo

A box is a box is a box unless it the Cliff House by Canadian MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects. A simple idea, a stunning location, a box that is more than a box. Retreat, weekender, archetypal cabin with a view and vertigo. Austere, modest poetry in the landscape.

In the dark

Moody, masculine, modern. Sophisticated with a rough edge. Shiny dark floors and floor level mirrors confuse the boundaries and make this warehouse apartment look larger as do the full height doors. Slick with exposed brick by Architect Prineas.

A family home in Milan

Posted on Sun, 19 Jul 2015 by KiM

As the story goes, there once was a boy whose mother was a gallery owner. When the boy was 14, he asked for a Vespa, and was instead given a Joe lounge chair by de Pas, D’Urbino and Lomazzi. Many years later the boy now lives in a beautiful home in Milan with his wife and children. The home was formerly 6 apartments and is now a wonderfully eclectic family home with amazing artwork on display and yes, some classic statement furniture. I love how the canvas printed with a photo above is hanging without the use of a stretcher (might steal this idea for over my living room sofa). Via The Socialite Family, photos: Constance Gennari.
