‘I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul.’
– Jean Cocteau
Cats can be notoriously aloof, yet they have a special knack for commanding a room. But what can these curious creatures reveal about their owners’ personal style and design sensibilities?
Where They Purr showcases twenty-eight inspirational houses and their creative interiors, along with the charismatic felines who call these places home. From a heritage-listed Victorian terrace to a modern farmhouse with panoramic vistas, an art-filled inner-city warehouse to a cosy rental that reveals the power of classic pieces and clever design, discover each cat’s domain and their predilection for sunlit nooks, mid-century furniture or rooms with a view.
Through stunning photography, Paul Barbera captures these enviable homes and the enigmatic qualities of our most contrary of domestic companions: the cat.
