All over the place...

I am all over the place today... I've wasted quite a good amount of time at work today, not really accomplishing anything. In the spirit of my lack of focus, this post is a few wonderful bits of randomness! The pictures are links to the websites as always.

For all those of you who have furry friends we've each at some point in time looked at the ugly wire or plastic monstrosity called a "kennel" and wished we could improve upon that design of shear functionality... Well I have found the most wonderfully charming kennel in the world. It belongs to the charming dachshund of Matthew White an interior designer who's apartment was featured in conjunction with his design partner's Frank Webb on the New York Social Diary website. The kennel is designed to match the owner's bed. Both apartments featured in this article are elegant and extravagant, but I fell in love with this little doggie bed.

I am a huge fan of back lit cabinets, although I fear they require much more affinity for shooing away dust bunnies than what I presently possess. Over at Velvet and Linen, interior designer Brook Giametti's blog, she recently gave us a personal tour of her beautiful cottege-esque home. The entire house is very warm and welcoming, but her kitchen cabinets have captured my imagination. They are back light by the window to show of her pink depression glass collection. This is the first time I've seen a glass cabinet placed on a window as the design element and I LOVE it!

That dog bed is amazing!

Wow, Danielle!
Thank you for posting about my kitchen.
I am truly honored.
In our first home we put cabinets in front of existing windows. We liked it so much that we did it again in this kitchen!

I'm thinking the HRH Pug would greatly enjoy this sort of upgrade from his prison-like crate. Fun pictures.
