Matt Garcia Design – Sunny Slope remodel

Posted on Tue, 23 Feb 2016 by KiM

Originally built in 1951 by Edwin Pfluger, this midcentury modern home in Austin was remodeled and is now a hip pad that is far from a blast from the past. From the fantastic landscaping to the bright all-white kitchen, this home has it all. Designed by Matt Garcia Design.

Why Frank is so Fantastic

Posted on Tue, 23 Feb 2016 by midcenturyjo

It’s just a box, a simple cookie cutter studio apartment. Tiny living/sleeping room, entry, bijou kitchen and even smaller bathroom. Yet I want it. Why? Because after the stylist and photographer have finished with it I can’t take my eyes off the photos, scanning for covetable objects or clever ideas. I’m already daydreaming that it’s my Stockholm pied-à-terre. That’s why Frank is so fantastic. Can’t have it though. It’s sold. Via Fantastic Frank.

If you thought the photos I shared yesterday of Stacy Bass‘ new book on gardens were gorgeous, check out this eye candy from her interiors portfolio. The photo above is my absolute favourite. Magical.

Monday’s pets on furniture

Posted on Mon, 22 Feb 2016 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!

Below is a photo of our rescue, Roxie, warming up by the fire on our George Nelson bench (with Hans Olsen fried egg chair in background).
– Aly 

This is our Tonkinese ‘Butch’ as you can see he is loving our new Hans Wegner Shell chair
– Kathy (Toronto)

1 – Bella (aka The Fuzz). I had her from when she was a puppy up until when she passed away at 14. She was a sweet and shy dog but when she wanted for me to get up she would take a running jump and pounce on me in bed. 
2 – Bruno. I adopted him in July of 2015 and he’s about 10 now. He’s quite big for a Husky and super fluffy. Don’t let that sweet innocent look fool you. He’s a firecracker when it’s time to go anywhere – walks, car rides, Petco, you name it – he’s Mr. Social.
Ana (San Diego) 

Here is my little girl. Her name is Bijou (13 yo) and she is sitting on my 60s Danish sofa. She loves the sun room. I am in the process of trying  to claim it back. Lol. 
– Aaron (Nashville, TN) 

Found this one my phone. Count the kitties. 

More from Marianne Evennou

From its colour blocking to tumbling blocks to steel framed windows this French home is effortlessly stylish. Accents of yellow flash through the limited palette of black and white like a colourful scarf added to a fashionably austere dress. Chez Eléonore by Marianne Evennou.
