Flickr Faves on Fridays: Open Floor Plan

Today all of our pictures come from Flickr member ardelclaveria, who is currently in Manila. Isn’t it great to be able to look through so many photos from all over the world on Flickr? It still blows my mind. Just a teeny tiny little thumbnail of this image jumped out of our Fresh New Spaces pool and bowled me over:

This is such a great way to make the most of a small dining area. The bench keeps the view open, the banquette hugs the wall, and the shapes of the furniture  and the fabrics are gorgeous choices.

A clear coffee table adds visual space, the tablescapes are brilliant, and the shaggy rug defines the sitting/lounging area. Note the way the bench straddles the two spaces and can be used in either area for seating.

Finally, I just really love ardel claveria’s photography skills. Taking interior shots that look this beautiful takes so much skill and talent. Thanks so much for adding them to our group!

Inspiration Monday: Annette Joseph


Posted by Becky | View all posts by Becky

I am so excited that photo stylist Annette Joseph will be giving a talk this Friday at Lavish! It gave me a kick in the pants to go take a look at her portfolio. Here are a few favorites (it’s hard to choose). You may check out much more of her work here.

Getting a good interior shot is so hard, and Annette’s styling makes it look easy. I’m still at phase one, where I try to get ugly cords out of the way! Her work inspires lovely tables and tablescapes, perfect furniture arrangement, and looking lived in without looking messy. I’ll follow up after I see her speak to share what else I learn from her.
