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!

Well, I’m on vacation, so I am totally phoning in this post and just sharing a few shots I’ve taken in Maine so far. I’m giving them to you a whole 12 hours ahead of time.
Yup, I’m just letting you all follow me around the web today. Of course there is usually a longer journey that would be funny to map, from Twitter to Tumblr to Facebook with a little break for Bedazzled Blitz along the way…Anyway, this picture makes me want to turn my dining room into a painting studio.
I love perusing Erik Johnson’s portfolio online, and this one in particular made my heart happy today. And you all know I don’t usually say goofy sweet things like that, so it must be true!

This weeks flickr fave comes from our Fresh New Spaces Group. It’s from flickr member souvenirs du passe.The 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).
