Oh this picture that flickr member lakbdesigns/fergusandme submitted to our Fresh New Spaces Group makes me feel exhilarated – LOVE the yellow and turquoise together, the POM POMS and the fun mix of vintage furniture, the lanterns, the flowers, the stone patio – Love Love Love!

Flickr Faves on Friday: An Ode to Dewey

Vintage Storage Solutions

This week’s flickr fave comes from flickr member hindsvik. Antique stores have been chock full of card catalogs ever since computer monitor have become the main storage for the Dewey Decimal System. It’s kind of sad really, that today’s kids will never have the experience of flipping through index cards and actually understanding alphabetical order, but the good news is, they make for great home decor items. I love the contrast of these two colors and styles of card catalogs here – it works like a sculpture. This is the epitome of “vintage modern” style!

You can check out Hindsvik’s blog here and get the look with help from their etsy shop.

How would you use a unit like this? What would you store in it?

Here are a few articles/websites that caught my attention today I thought I would share with you:

1st Dibs is getting some Competition via Fyndes.com. Thanks to Decorno for the tipoff. Love this yellow vintage Steelcase sofa:

Historic Preservation is in jeopardy.

The Civil Rights Center in Atlanta will be green. Why it is downtown and not in the Old Fourth Ward baffles me – there seems to be enough room where they have torn down the projects. I think I’d rather pair my visit with The King Center than The World of Coke.

Some jerk stole Mr. Monster from a preschool.

Katie Brown is a thrifty and resourceful decorator. Here’s another fun interview with her from the Berkshire Eagle. Her website is chock full of how-to projects. I want to go to there…and move in:

Hop over to The New York Times for the full glorious slideshow, photographed by Phil Mansfield. I want to go to the Berkshires so badly right now after looking through his gorgeous shots of her enviable views and light and cozy house!
