Flickr Faves on Fridays: Anti-Depressive Vintage

I love checking out the home of blogger Kay Loves Vintage,and I was so excited to see that she posted this picture to our OTHER Flickr group that I started, Anti-Depressive Living. To be honest, I had been ignoring that group for awhile because a bunch of people had posted all kinds of stuff they were selling and I didn’t feel like dealing with it (I’m a really bad Flickr administrator). Anyway, it’s totally taken on a life of its own and the variety of images posted in there are totally wackadoodle and I love it. It makes absolutely NO sense whatsoever.

Well, that was NOT to say that Kay’s wackadoodle, she has got it going on, and I’ve learned a lot about vintage pieces from her. I think I spy a PH light, some vintage Eames shell chairs, a Catherine Holm bowl, perhaps some Dansk (?) and that’s the extent of my vintage knowledge.

Also, Kay has a cool blog called KayLovesVintage and it’s a delight.

Rue Magazine is Here!

It was such a treat to read the buzz about Rue Magazine’s premiere issue yesterday and then to peruse it. I know I am going to back and pore over it for hours. It was so much fun to see so many of our favorite bloggers and designers featured (I’m not even going to name them because I know I’ll inadvertently leave one out – there are SO MANY!).

When I first started blogging, one of the very first blogs and the first photo we ever feel in love with on Flickr were both from Victoria, a.k.a. sfgirlbybay. It’s been so much fun to watch her blog grow and to watch her switch up her home, especially after she moved! Let this photo serve as a teaser, then, if you haven’t already, hop on over to Rue and check out the entire issue. My only wish is that I could buy this baby in print and add it to the very special magazine issues I keep permanently:

The folks over at DwellStudio are some of the best at styling their products, but I think they would likely agree that this one is a superb example of styling their Chinoiserie Pearl bedding!

More Images from The Ace Hotel in Palm Springs

Here are a few more shots I snagged at The Ace Hotel Palm Springs this past weekend. It’s such a perfect desert hangout, and again, I cannot recommend breakfast enough, though I must say, I felt about at least ten years older than the average guest at this joint.

I’m not sure I could have asked anyone to place these scooters in a more perfect spot for this shot!

This mid-century modern roofline is just so California to me. I love its relationship to the range beyond it.

No detail was overlooked. There are kitschy tchotchkes and vintage books in the lobby.

This shelf unit above was copied by one of my favorite bloggers, The Brick House, in her home as a D.I.Y. project. Check it out here.

The lobby has this fun natural history museum on ecstasy display.

Love this tile pattern by the pool.

Flicker Faves on Fridays: Anne-Lynn’s Lovely Living Room

I recently spied this photo in our Fresh New Spaces Group on flickr, from flickr member lakbdesign/fergusandme She left this caption underneath: “I found this screen at my favorite consignment shop last week and promptly fell in love with it – it has sailing ships and charming flagged towers and pretty, graphic clouds and whitecaps, and best of all, a saltire.” I love the screen too. Its a unique element that draws the eye right to it and gives the room an eclectic jolt. I love the way it’s placed and that it’s not a typical framed painting. I also love the playful relationship it has with that gorgeous chandelier. The room is soft and calming, and full of interesting textures. It’s such a perfect balance, right down to the basket in the fireplace.

Just for fun, let’s check out the maritime details revealed in this angle:

Somehow this room has a kitschy seahorse lamp in it (LOVE IT!), yet it manages to remain very sophisticated. Thank you for sharing these lakbdesigns/fergusandme! Oh, and to learn more, check out Lynn-Anne’s blog. Her house is amazing – I’ll give you a teaser: Polar Bear Wallpaper.

Why did I not hear about this until I received my People mag in the mail today? There is a Mad Men auction happening on eBay, that includes lamps, desks, sofas and chairs from the old Sterling Cooper office sets! Proceeds will go to City of Hope. As this goes to post, there are over nine days left in the ten day auctions.
