My fave room of the moment today is this bedroom by Flickr member lakbdesign/fergus and me. Love the color, love the quilt, love the funny polka dot pillowcases, love the crazy seahorse lamps. Symmetry makes it all work somehow:

Learn a little more about this amazing quilt.

But wait, there’s more! A fireplace and mantle, cool shutters, warm wood floor sand the most fabulous chandy I’ve seen all day. I never thought to fill a non-functioning fireplace with books before. As long as the soot’s taken care of, why not?

Thanks so much to the fabulous Lynn-Anne Bruns for continuing to add her gorgeous photos to our Fresh New Spaces group!

This spring, hues have livened up! Not neon (yuck!), not pale pastels (yawn!), but juuuuuust right. Fuchsia, bright yellow, teal and aqua, green a bit lighter than kelly, and of course, old reliable – orange. I clipped a piece of this kate spade ad out of a magazine because I loved the colors of the windows so much, so I decided to pair it with some favorite bright finds from around the site.

The next batch comes to us from flickr member tattywelshie, found in our Fresh New Spaces group. Some of the things I love about this space is the fearless yet restrained use of wallpaper, the mastery of blue (even in the fireplace), that the rest of the palette is clean and bright, the use of metallics and glass, and that tattywelshie believes in eco-friendly design and tries to design in an environmentally responsible way:

by the way, in case you weren’t impressed enough already, here is what the room looked like before:

Oh, this just in, tattywelshie has a blog right here. It looks like it didn’t get very far, so let’s hound him and make him share more with us on it!

Through our Fresh New Spaces Group today I found flickr member Liz and Mabel’s steal of a mid-century sleeper sofa, found on craigslist for $65:

By the way, love the outfit, the pooch, and that aqua mini-gourd lamp too!

I absolutely love this lady’s smashing style! After perusing the Liz and Mabel flickr sets I found Mabel’s House blog, and I am absolutely smitten with her trips, photography, entertaining and fresh writing. Also, this woman has got a real eye for transforming forgotten furniture pieces with colorful paint. For example, I love this big blue mirror project:

I love the pops of turquoise all over this home. Here’s one more, check out the rest here:
