Creative Spaces: “…beautiful, kitsch and covetable to the max.”

This amazing home, Mapesbury Road, owned by stylist Marianne Cotterill is a mix of old, new, midcentury and quirky kitsch. I love the details, and let me just say, the details are constant because every time I look I discover something I hadn’t seen before. Imagine having carte blanche to decorate a house, room by room, using your imagination to fulfil your every decorating desire and fascination! Each room is decorated individually and yet they all tie together somehow. Enjoy these beautiful photographs by Oliver Perrott. I would love to hear your feedback on the inspired decoration and your take on the interior.

Are you not inspired now after all that?

Have a great day. xx

Pets & Furniture

Every Monday, Desire to Inspire posts “Pets on Furniture” which is a post all about, you guessed it – pets on furniture. If you’re having a slow start to your week I recommend you check it out because there is sure to be a picture that will make your day. Often there is a short and sweet tale attached to the animal in the picture (pardon the pun) and it’s not always dogs and cats either. They have basic rules when submitting your pictures; first, the pet must be on a piece of furniture, but it must look as if it is a photo of a great piece of furniture that you want to show off and your pet happens to be sitting on it. Plus the photo must of of a decent quality and no closeups of your pet.  I guess over time some of these rules become a bit lax as I have definitely seen pictures published where the furniture can barely be seen as the pet is lounging all over it!   Anyway, here are a few of my recent favourites for you to enjoy.

Finn the ginger tom.

Tulip and Nigella.

Pepper the Dachshund on an Eames rocker.


Baleia on a Florence Knoll armchair.

Dardo the bull terrier puppy on a vintage tulip chair.

As you can probably tell, it was difficult to narrow down my favourites. I especially adore the last dog because I grew up with bull terriers and they are very loyal, adorable animals, their cuteness definitely underestimated.

I take so many pictures of my gorgeous labrador Jet curled up on our bed or in our papa san chair on the deck that I definitely going to submit a photo for Desire to Inspire’s Pets on Furniture. I’ll let you know if they post her on their blog. 🙂
