These dudes make me so happy. 🥰 I never intended to get a dog, let alone two, but Buddy (front) wasn’t fitting in at my mom’s home, and I was going through a bad breakup. I couldn’t bear to see my mom cry and adopted him to keep him in the family. Bear was, ironically, Buddy’s replacement in my mom’s home and came into our lives when my mom passed away two and a half years ago. They are the best of friends, they squabble like siblings sometimes, and I can’t imagine my life without them.• • • #dtipetsonfurniture #theeverygirlathome #dogsofinstagram #dogs #dogoftheday #doggy #dogsofinstaworld #dogstagram #doglovers #instadog #doggie #dogscorner #dogslife #dog_features #instadog #mydogiscutest #shitzuchihuahua #maltesemix

And from me: I caught Lucky mid-yawn on the sectional in our media room. Phoebe isn’t on but under the furniture, but maybe if I post this it will help get my new sofa here faster ;). And not furniture but I had to share because it’s too cute how Frankie lays like this in the catio when it’s hot outside. (Also, my IG stories often have cat snaps if you’re interested in seeing life with a slew of cats)

Beaverbrook House

Posted on Sun, 9 Jun 2019 by KiM

A little dose of traditional grandeur on this lovely summery Sunday. Beaverbrook House is a historic country house hotel located on 370 acres in the countryside of Surrey, just outside of London, and was designed by Susie Atkinson. This project consisted of the refurbishment of 18 bedroom suites and public spaces (restaurant, morning room, library, cinema, parrot bar and private dining room. Susie sourced the antiques, artwork and quirky modern finds to create an original and luxurious that is layered and rich in colour and pattern. It is really stunning.

Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 8 Jun 2019 by midcenturyjo

It’s like I say every week. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere super stylish. MOB Hair by Sydney-based interior architect Phoebe Nicol.



“Located along the coastline of Port Phillip Bay and within arm’s reach of the Portsea Pier, Portsea Beach House is the refurbishment of an existing cliff top residence. The proposed scheme pays homage to the understated character of the house which is reminiscent of the modernist era and adopts a sympathetic palette that draws inspiration from the surrounding coastal context.”

Simple, stylish, so satisfying. Respect for the past informs new design decisions. Finishes are luxe but restrained except those crazy paved floors. They’re just outrageously good. Portsea Beach House by Melbourne-based Studio Esteta.



A light bright loft

Posted on Fri, 7 Jun 2019 by midcenturyjo

There are a couple of my dream scenarios intersecting in this Chelsea loft by Tali Roth Interior Design. Yes it’s a loft. It’s in New York. Light is flooding in and it’s predominantly white. Sigh. I don’t live in a loft or in New York. I do have the light but with a dog and a husband who doesn’t realise he’s made a mess at times (he’s blind) white sofas are definitely out of the question. Lucky I’m happy with what I’ve got but a girl can dream of an oh so lovely, far away, light, bright loft.
