The look she gives me when I’m leaving for work on a Saturday.💗🐶 . If you saw my story yesterday then you saw this gorgeous rattan and cane loveseat that I saw for sale but passed up because we simply don’t have room for it. It took all my powers of restraint but I’m pretty proud of myself. . This small victory represents something so much larger. . Today I’m lifting the veil on a bit of shame I carry around. . I’ve lived most of my adult life in debt. I’m a reformed shopaholic and have always indulged my whims—clothes, home furnishings, life experiences. If I wanted it, I got it. And when you get deep enough into debt (like over your head) your mindset becomes—“what’s one more thing, I’m so in debt anyway 🤷🏻‍♀️” . So imagine when I stumbled into this Instagram world of perfection. Well then I just had to find new goodies to change things up and sometimes it was cloaked in —“got this at a thrift store and it didn’t cost all that much so it’s no big deal”. Or I was given products to promote for a small business. . Before I knew it, we were swimming in stuff. . And some of you have been following for awhile and know that I’ve been cleaning out and purging. Learning to live with enough is the new way of being satisfied. So I window shop. And the rattan beauty was a fun moment to marvel at. . And while our home will never be the poster child of #lagom —that is my new guiding force. . What is your small victory? I’d love to cheer you on! . . . . . . . #stellarspaces #sadieslovelylife #apartmenttherapy #howyouhome #designsponge #sodomino #houseplantsofinstagram #urbanjunglebloggers #calivibes #surfshack #inmydomaine #myinterior #elledecor #interior4you1 #bohemianstyle #bohemiandecor #myhousebeautiful #mybhg #hgtvhome #jungalowstyle #thenewbohemians #ggathome #anthropologiehome #anthrohome #mywestelm #nationaldogday #dogsofinstagram #iplanteven

It's been really hard not to post like 15 shots of the bedroom this week 😂🙈 but I can't help sharing this one because well, Quito – as usual – sort of steals the show here ❤️🐶❤️. Of course, one of my favourite aspects of this new design is the @madedotcom bed 😍- I adore it and I'm going to be sharing loads of my favourites from their website tomorrow on the blog! It's definitely become one of my favourite spots for affordable design over the last couple of years 💕In the meantime, if you haven't yet seen the bedroom makeover then you can click on the link in my profile and this image to be taken straight to the post! #sp . . . https://www.swoonworthy.co.uk/2018/08/jungle-glam-bedroom-makeover.html/ . . . #swoonworthy #bedroom #bedroomdesign #beforeandafter #bedroominspo #bedroomgoals #bohoglam #glamourous #interiordesign #interiordesignideas #designsponge #interiorboom #styleithappy #livefabulousandfearless #luxuryinteriorsonabudget #howyouhome #suyhome #lonnyliving #ihavethisthingwithpink #abmlifeiscolorful #eclecticdecor

Imagine being THIS good at modelling but never getting paid for it!? Though imagine an Italian greyhound on the Kleenex ads – he’d have stuck his little needle feet through the toilet paper instantly and then sat quivering in fear when the toilet roll rolled away. They’re basically the Edward Scissorhands (also an unemployable model) of the dog world, minus the ability to make beautiful ice sculptures. Gosh I love Edward Scissorhands, and dogs. Happy Friday everyone! . . . . #colourmyhome #bhghome #moreismoredecor #walltowallstyle #dspets #thenewbohemians #mycovetedhome #thriftedhome #dtipetsonfurniture #thisiswhyihavetothriftshopeveryday #flashesofdelight #cosyupyourworld #showusyourhygge #howwedwell #mycreativeinterior #myvintageabode #allthingsmetric #myinteriorvibe #pocketofmyhome #myhomevibe #eclectichomemix #mystylishspace #eclecticstyle #apartmenttherapy #styleithappy #stellarspaces #interiormilk

I would like to share with you the last photo I took my old friend Diesel. She is about to turn 12 and as an old lady she enjoys very much her nap on our Eames lounge chair. Look how peaceful she looks 😉

It’s taken me ages to get a good picture of our other cat, Margaux, for Pets on Furniture. Margaux doesn’t hang out on the furniture as much as Pinot. Probably because she likes to sleep on the cable box in the TV room/den, which is always warm. But here’s Margaux in the master bedroom on the wicker chair. She waits here in the morning sometimes while I am getting ready.

And some from me. Bernie napping on the cat sofa (they’re on it WAY more than me) and Phoebe hanging out in the Tuft & Paw cat bed.

Tuft + Paw – modern cat furniture

Posted on Fri, 28 Sep 2018 by KiM

As you know I have many cats who share my home with me. And as you also know, I have a thing for interior design. One of my problems is I need cat paraphernalia basically all over my house to keep the herd happy, which in turn keeps me happy. Readily available cat furniture out there is absolutely hideous I’m constantly moving it out of the way when I take photos. When I come across cat furniture that isn’t embarrassing, I get pretty excited. And California-based company Tuft + Paw has broken the mold when it comes to modern cat furniture. After they flipped me an email I went to have a look at their website and was literally squealing in delight. Their products are soooooo not what you’re going to find at your local pet store. And that is why I love them so much. And why I think my cats now love them too.

I was asked to select a product to try out and I had a really hard time deciding but ended up going with the Indigo cat bed. Of course with any cat furniture, you immediately wonder if the cats will be more interested in the box it came in than the item itself.

I was a bit nervous by all the attention the box got at first, as you can see above, but you’ll see later that my nervousness was short-lived. 🙂

So this is it out of the box. It was simple to put together (thankfully because I suck at following diagram instructions). I went with the sea salt gray cover. They also have purple and white. It comes with 2 cushions – yellow and dark grey. It only took me a few minutes to put it together, and I was so stoked with the quality and how awesome it looks in my living room (its current location).

Before I share more photos let me warn you that no cats were forced into any of these positions. They all eagerly tried it out and have loved it since it arrived. I have found just about every one of my cats snoozing on this bed at one time or another. This winter I may add something furry over the cushion to make it even more snuggly.

This grey is perfect because it hides cat fur really well. 🙂 The cover is 100% wool felt and cats LOVE felt. The base is made of solid beech wood.

The photo above was taken about 10 seconds after I had put it together. Mimin hopped right in.

As you can see, I had nothing to worry about. LOL!

They sell all kinds of items aside from beds – cat trees and perches, scratching posts, litter box hideaways and toys. Here are some of my favourites.

Happy #Caturday from my lovely Stella! I’ve been sharing on my stories how she has been stealing my favorite coffee drinking spot and this morning was no exception! 😹 . I have to leave for work anyway so it’s all yours, sweet Stella! . But check out this gorgeous alpaca throw blanket from @shopgalavant. Perfect neutral colors and complementing the neutral (for me😉) vibe. And it matches Stella perfectly, dontcha think? Of course if color is your thing, believe me there are many more colorful options on their website. . The reason I support this small company is because they source ethically from small communities and give back a portion of their profits to these communities as a way to help them become more self sufficient! And right now they are offering free shipping—how’s that for an incentive? . PS—@shopgalavant is offering my followers a savings of 15% with this code ➡️ SADIES15. Better jump on that!😉 . . . . . . #sadieslovelylife #flashesofdelight #livethelittlethings #anthrohome #thenewbohemians #bohodecor #bohohome #jungalowstyle #currenthomeview #thatsdarling #darlingweekend #theeverygirlathome #catsofinstagram #apartmenttherapy #scandiboho #modernbohemian #plantladyisthenewcatlady #plantlady #plantladylife #urbanjunglebloggers #interiorrewilding #houseplantsofinstagram #planteriordesign #houseplant

We adopted Millie when she was a feisty 3 year old and she’s graced us with her presence for a further 11 years. Sadly she’s a little thinner now, a bit slower with a slight limp but definitely still as feisty, especially when it comes to keeping our bouncy labradoodle in check – long may it last 🐱🐶Day 19 Animal Magic #myhousethismonth @myhousethismonth 🐱 . . . . . . . . #britishblue #britishbluecat #britishshorthair #catsofinstagram #gardenlife #pursuepretty #simplethingsinlife #sundayvibes #spotlightonmyhome #cornerofmyhome #sassyhomestyle #myhomevibe #petsofinstagram #interiormilk #interiorboom #dtipetsonfurniture #bemorecat #designsponge #jungalino #urbanjunglebloggers #livefabulousandfearless #mygorgeousgaff #walltowallstyle #nestandthrive #dailydecordetail #mystylishspace

As predicted after my food coma on Sunday I fell asleep on the sofa to wake up finding Pierre had managed to drag the top sheet, king size duvet & blanket to the base of the bed in a near perfect straight line. I’m not sure if he did it in protest at me falling asleep or if he did it for fun. Either way this is where he slept that night. Note where he is positioned. Mostly in the middle of the bed leaving me tons of room to sprawl…not. Anyway I took this photo in the morning. He hadn’t moved & didn’t want to get up. Clearly deconstructing the bed on his own was exhausting. #WeeklyFluff #dtipetsonfurniture #dspets #aapets #miniaturepoodle #poodlesrule #poodlesofinstagram #poodlesarethebest #poodlesareawesome #ihavethisthingwithpink #howivintage #vintageheadboard #notveryspoilt #loreal #becauseheisworthit #loveofmylife

Here’s Pinot in her favorite chair – maybe because it provides a natural camouflage?
– Karen (Norfolk, Virginia)

Here’s our dwarfrabbit gang. (All from shelters) Our beloved sunshines. The first is Casimir (Long Hair Angora) Freshly trimmed because of the heat. The second under the chair is on the left Ringel and on the right Blanca. (She’s deaf but nevertheless the Boss of the whole family 😉 ) The third is Pippa on the left and Ringel on the right. (Both three-legged through accidents).

And one from me of Bernie napping on his favourite chair in the living room

This is my cat, MeeMee taking a break. I needlepointed the pillows in the background. The one on the right is my design and the one on the left is from a book.

My friend Deb sent along this photo of the gorgeous Tessie, whom she adopted from the Country Cat Sanctuary. She’s living the good life now!!

We just got a new couch. Our dog Sadie loves it!

A couple from me. I sold my massive leather sofa so I scavenged some furniture from my storage room to put in its place. It took no time before Felix claimed my Green Light District chair. And Bernie having a morning lounge in the media room.

i bought a new art over the weekend 🧐🤷🏻‍♂️

Meisha has already decided our new beautiful bed from @madedotcom is a keeper. 😻The bedroom isn’t really ready for its debut just yet but I have moved everything back in because we’ve got a houseful of company this weekend and I needed to get the room in order for their arrival so needs must! 😂🙈 I’m so excited about the Tilia bed though – it’s such a change from my yellow headboard that it already feels like a different space and that gorgeous rose colour gives me all the feels 💕 I’ll share more, of course, once we sort out that back wall and the mural goes up! It’ll be SO good to have one room looking the way I’d envisioned – promise the wait will be worth it! #sp . . . . #swoonworthy #bedroom #bedroomdesign #bedroominspo #bedroomgoals #bohoglam #glamorous #interiordesign #interiordesignideas #ekbbhome #interiorboom #styleithappy #livefabulousandfearless #luxuryinteriorsonabudget #howyouhome #suyhome #lonnyliving #ihavethisthingwithpink #abmlifeiscolorful #eclecticdecor #dtipetsonfurniture #bengalsofinstagram #madedesign

Biggie is a great model apart from when you’re trying to showcase the beautiful @baudry.lisa for @boltofcloth cushions and he just body blocks them. 🤷‍♀️ I’m beyond stoked to be judging this years @boltofcloth textile design competition alongside @studiohome and @stuffhomed, and can’t wait to see designs – it’s open to anyone in NZ or Australia, and the winning designer gets a range of beautiful cushions produced. 😍🙌❤️ What kind of designs would you like to see more of in your home? . . . #boltofclothtextiledesignaward #boltofcloth #dspets #dtipetsonfurniture #italiangreyhound #bigtheig #aucklanddogs #lisabaudry #nzdesigners #australiandesign #textiledesign #bohodecor #mycreativelife #finditstyleit #myhomevibe #nzhomeswithstyle

As the heavens opened last night & there was no walk for his highness, Monsieur Pierre, I ripped out the big guns, a new toy I had stashed away. I love this one because it’s pink, it’s an elephant that isn’t big enough for him to have sex with although never say never & more importantly it’s not his manky blue much loved fly. Speaking of which I have to say a massive thankyou to the very lovely @stuchberysarah who found an online shop that is selling the discontinued blue @fuzzyard Shoo the Fly after I posted a cry for help on stories. The power, gorgeous nature & spirit of the Insta community never ceases to amaze me especially as Fly the 3rd is beyond gross and the company I ordered 5 from have gone MIA. May they eat the shit of 1000 poodles & die. Swipey swipe to see Pierre attempting to be patient before he took his new elephant to the living room & put on a floor show minus live sex. Lucky boy now hopefully has 5 flies winging their way to the west coast. I’m so happy I could shit a fly. #miniaturepoodle #poodlesrule #ihavethisthingwithpink #duluxaus #duluxdancer #vintageheadboard #vintagelove #pocketofmyhome #brightboldhome #dspink #dspets #dtipetsonfurniture #thisiswhyihavetothriftshopeveryday #howivintage #apartmenttherapy #aapets #styleithappy #styleitverybloodyhappy #becauseallthisshitisvintage #exceptpierre

A couple from my dear Instagram friend @kelseyannaf of her sweet rescue kitties.

A couple from me of course! First up, as I sat down to get this post ready, my husband alerted me to this action on the sofa. Lucky is hysterical when he’s sleeping. This shot was my favourite, after taking many and he finally woke up. Then you’ve got the 2 lovebirds, Frankie cuddling with his buddy Felix. It’s a king sized bed yet Frankie has to mash up against him.
