Ah! I think my time this week has been sucked up by a big design blog catch up! Sorry for the lack of posts! However, here are a few of the things I’ve been checking out lately:

1) I found out I’m an eco-dummy by taking this How Eco-Saavy Are You Quiz over at Real Simple.

2) I’ve been reading about heroic chair restorations over at Manhattan Nest. Can you believe that this abandoned Eames chair:


Was rehabbed with lots of elbow grease, love, and a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and turned into this?

3. Loving this story of a sofa transformation over at Wood and Faulk. He’s my hero.

4. Catching up on a few eps of Secrets From a Stylist on HGTV.com. Emily has the best personality, and I really like her approach when she works with people.

5. Now I swear I don’t watch any of those shows that are all about cakes, but I thoroughly enjoyed the Jealous Curator’s collection of cake images over at sfgirlbybay:

This weeks flickr fave comes from our Fresh New Spaces Group. It’s from flickr member souvenirs du passe.4104755791_e91fde8f9fThe space is beautiful in its simplicity, and the light in the photograph is just beautiful.

O.K. As I was working on this post, I realized that this flickr member is Paper Flower Girl, whom I was just reading about on decor8 a few days ago. The world of the interwebs just gets smaller and smaller the longer you are on it! Be sure to check out her Etsy store, her blog, and her entire flickr photostream, which is now a favorite of mine (especially the sketchbook page images).

Flickr Faves on Fridays

Today I have been admiring this Gastown loft in Vancouver B.C. that I found in our fresh new spaces group on flickr. Thanks so much to flickr member to be, inspired for sharing this! At first, you might browse on by and think “oh big whoop, another gorgeous loft with big windows, exposed brick and beams and huge open space.” However, look closer. This owner really knows how to balance things to perfection. It’s not too rugged, not too sleek. Not too modern, not too eclectic. It’s just right:

This loft strikes a great balance between sleek, modern furniture and some classic glitz; between structural elements like ebony wood cabinets and more worn patinas, like the exposed brick walls and slightly rough-hewn posts. Sticking to the a neutral color palette allows the wide array of textures to stand out.

For more about this loft, link over to this post at To Be, Inspired. Also, this post is hilarious. If you want to learn more about the owner, Sally, click here. She is someone I would love to hang out with!

both images from flickr member to be, inspired, specifically, Ryan. Doesn’t this beautiful photography enhance the palette and style of this space even more? As I watched the slideshow from our group, every one of their photos was obviously theirs.
