This might be the first time we’ve had an actual person in a flickr fave. No wait, I think there was a child on a hammock once, but that’s it! I love everything about this shot that Stacy Anne Longenecker added to our Fresh New Spaces Group. It’s a darling shot of the two of them, and I am loving the art arrangement and shelves behind them!

So while I was perusing her Apartment Set, I came across this clever idea:

As I perused Fresh New Spaces on flickr, I found a few members who exalt “bad art” and “crap art.” I love this idea. The first two come from kitschcafe:

Bad art

The next one comes from Neryl Walker, who calls it “Crap Art”:

When arranged so brilliantly, the bad/crap art looks very compelling!

I know I’ve mentioned/swiped from one of my favorite blogs, VisuaLingual before, but I wanted to show a few favorite flickr shots I have swiped from there for my own inspiration.

Brilliant and balanced Art Arrangement:

A collection of found objects, in this case bottles, they have found around their neighborhood, Over the Rhine in Cincy:

More great art arrangement, a bold color choice, and you all know I’m always a sucker for globes and maps:

And finally, the to die for studio space:

Check out VisuaLingual on flickr here, the blog here, the site here, and the etsy shop here!

Cressida Campbell Woodblock Paintings

Apparently I’m discovering this wonderful artist very late in the game, because her book is already sold out. However, since it will be reprinted this month, I wanted to make sure that anyone else like me who missed it the first time around gets a second chance! Cressida Campbell creates beautiful woodblock paintings of interiors (as well as many other subjects; Paperbarks is my favorite). She is drawn to patterns, which must mean she loves a challenge, as the thought of how in the world to engrave them on timber and then get the colors right is daunting.

A recent spread in Vogue Living Australia offers a few peaks into Ms. Campbell’s lovely beach home in Sydney. She has arranged the art over this sofa in such a pleasing way, which is no easy feat. It almost makes me think that champion arranger sfgirlbybay stopped by and assisted her!

As I post this, the reissue of the book is not yet available (it is sold internationally through amazon.com), but I’ll keep my eye out for it and let you know when it is.
