I realized a lot of the flickr picks that I mark as a fave have had a nice fat pop of red in them lately. Here are just a few:

Red High Chair

Anemone

Block 19/ The East Village

Alvhem

new addition to the kitchen

Please click on the images to find who they belong to. Usually I’d be spreading the link love, but I’m trying to get out of town, so I’ve taken the lazy way out!

Flickr Faves on Fridays: Modern Architecture in Austin

This is the Annie Residence, Austin Texas, by Bercy Chen Studio LP. I love the blues and grays next to the leaves and the way the glass reflects the trees in this shot. Here’s a little more about the project:

The house was built for two families in Austin and therefore is split into two living areas. The house consists of two pavilions connected by a glass hallway.

The design was greatly influenced by different regions and cultures. Both the use of the roof as an outdoor living space and the shading devices are derived from Moorish architecture. The body of water and the spatial continuity between inside and outside was inspired by Asian architecture. while the structural transparency of the volumes and the minimalist aspect of the interior was derived from Japanese pavilions.

The house is constructed of a modular steel frame. The frame is infilled with prefab thermasteel panels to minimize construction on-site waste. The structural frame is exposed, showing the construction process and articulating the house’s facades. The repetitive modular method, as well as the prefabrication allowed for greater efficiency during construction.

Thanks so much for subimitting this to our fresh new spaces group!

I was struck dumb by this bathroom renovation by flickr member BearZest:

BearZest and his partner live in the countryside in Portugal. I think what I love most about this room are the glossy, oversized, orange-red tiles on the wall. What an astounding difference this remodeling job makes! To check out the guest house for mature men that they run in Portugal, click here.

This new addition to our Fresh New Spaces Pool on flickr comes from member h4ndz:

I love the YELLOW SOFA, the Danish modern pieces, the beam/lantern combo, the art arrangement on the wall and all the wonderful light from that window.

Inspiration Monday: Make a Mosaic of Flickr Faves

Yesterday I was totally inspired by sfgirlbybay and finally made my first flickr mosaic after reading this post. Coincidentally, I think Victoria was the first person who ever asked me to be flickr buddies years ago! She may have also been one of our very first “flickr faves” here at Hatch. Her photography and the photography of those in her group and blog continue to keep us all inspired week after week, and now year after year. Anyway, I think I gave every single one of these photos a “mark as fave” star when I saw them in the sfgirlbybay flickr group.

To practice being a mosaic master like Victoria, try using big huge labs. Even I figured it out easily, and I am absolutely terrible at this stuff.
