Flickr Faves on Fridays: Who Knew…

…that six old folding chairs could look SOOOOO beautiful when placed in an all white loft dining space? Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the flower arrangement looks like a MoMA-worthy work of art! Thanks so much to Danielle de Lange of The Style Files for sharing this photo on Flickr!

Flickr Faves on Fridays


Posted by Becky | View all posts by Becky

Oh I am having a lot of trouble narrowing down my picks for today’s flickr fave. I caught up with our Fresh New Spaces group earlier this week and my finger is sprained from hitting “Add to Faves” so many times. Thanks to everyone who is adding their photos to the pool, it gave me a ton of inspiration on a yucky rainy day when I thought I was burnt out on design!

While I had trouble picking, I realized I was in awe of flickr member uydurrukcu’s eye. I was hitting “add to faves” over and over again, which sent me to her Profile and on to her blog. Posting from Turkey, she is great at finding fresh spaces, bathed in white with clever graphics and mixes of vintage, antique, modern and a bit of IKEA thrown in. Here’s a sample of some of the images she’s posted to our group lately:

Flickr Faves on Friday: Ivy Style Does White

I am always struck by flickr member ivy style33’s well, style! She is constantly styling her home, figuring out inexpensive ways to make her home look extremely expensive, and she is a master of print and texture. This white corner is a perfect example of what I’m talking about. The fact that it’s mostly white makes one notice the texture on that shade, the mobile strand, the lampshade. The fact that she framed all of her artwork in the same frames makes them a cohesive collection:

Yea! Ivy is keeping us up to date with whatever she has going on in a blog – Check it out here! To get your own piece of Ivy Style, check out her Etsy shop.

Inspiration Monday: Attic Mag


Posted by Becky | View all posts by Becky

Sorry for the delay in inspiration. I’m not sure where my Monday went! Besides a mountain of laundry and a bunch of catch-up phone calls, a good part of it got sucked into AtticMag, the online magazine founded by Jane Freiman. It’s filling a good part of the hole for me. Here are a few images from a whitewashed room post:

AtticMag is also chock-full of yummy recipes, great renovation advice, and marketplace resources.

images via, I believe via Living etc. if I am reading correctly.
