Flickr Faves on Fridays

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:

Flickr Faves on Fridays

I’m going to try and do a few of these little flickr posts one at a time today. I’ve been catching up on some of marking some faves from our Fresh New Spaces flickr group. Here’s the first. I love this dining room from white owl remade’s photostream.

I thought the only thing I might add to it would be wallpaper, and then I saw this note by the picture:

my dining room… I keep thinking of wallpaper, but then I’m such a fan of white walls…

I suggest this lovely print as seen in Wyoming99!’s photostream:

Here is a larger shot of the print:

Do you think it will work? Do you have any other favorite prints that would work with that lovely black and white dining room? Do you know where that soapdish came from in the last photo? I love it!
