Flickr Faves on Fridays: Serene and Scaled in The Netherlands

Scaled properly that is. Check out how perfectly scaled Flickr member irideeën’s furnishings are. For example, the size of the mirror over the fireplace, and the size of the curtains:

Don’t you just love how airy, light, and sophisticated this is? It’s just so obvious it must be in Europe. That desk is absolutely to die for.

The other end of the room is slightly more casual:

and when we turn another ninety degrees, we’re surprised again; this time by some envy-inducing built-ins and a peak into the next room:

I kinda dig the way irideeën made me work for it, piecing together the room shot by shot. Nice work irideeën! Oh, and irideeën has a blog here, be sure to check it out. Also, irideeën lives in The Netherlands. After seeing this pad, I don’t think anyone else can make a herringbone floor as beautifully as the Dutch can.

All three images from Flickr member irideeën.

I think I have a new favorite Thomas Wold Project. The exuberant light and color this assemblage is emitting adds a whole new level of fun to his work.

Thomas Wold Mystery House

I love seeing the pieces before Thomas puts them together and have this mental image of how his mental images work, with pieces of tables and cabinets and door and legs swirling around, landing in different compositions, then moving again. Check out this post on his blog and you’ll recognize an element or two.

Thanks to Thomas for posting this in our Fresh New Spaces Group!

Oh I am having a lot of trouble narrowing down my picks for today’s flickr fave. I caught up with our Fresh New Spaces group earlier this week and my finger is sprained from hitting “Add to Faves” so many times. Thanks to everyone who is adding their photos to the pool, it gave me a ton of inspiration on a yucky rainy day when I thought I was burnt out on design!

While I had trouble picking, I realized I was in awe of flickr member uydurrukcu’s eye. I was hitting “add to faves” over and over again, which sent me to her Profile and on to her blog. Posting from Turkey, she is great at finding fresh spaces, bathed in white with clever graphics and mixes of vintage, antique, modern and a bit of IKEA thrown in. Here’s a sample of some of the images she’s posted to our group lately:

Flickr Faves on Fridays: Living Space

There’s something about this space that’s pleasing, even though I’m not seeing the middle of the room or how the space planning really works. I think it’s just a combo of the fireplace, the shelves, the fact taht I think I see actual ALBUMS, and the red Panton chair:

These photos come from flickr member designcuriosities, who shamelessly added them to our Fresh New Spaces group in the hopes of garnering votes for The Selby contest that’s currently going on with another retailer that’s not design public. About that…we don’t care, it’s great, I’m pissed I didn’t think of it first, and thanks for sharing d.c.! Plus, our competitor does not sell Panton chairs, but we do ;)

Sorry this one is late, I wanted to make sure I had permission to use it! This lovely kitchen photograph comes from flickr member  and professional photographer danielleanthony. The kitchen is in a house on Cannon Beach, one of the most sublimely beautiful places I’ve ever visited. Note how all of the color is brought in by the plates:
