Many styles. Much Inspiration.

There is so much amazing talent to and great design be found and shared on Flickr, that I thought I'd show you some of my favorites. It's an excellent tool for inspiration and kick starting your imagination. And it's free! I know I gush over Flickr, but I do believe it's only just begun a long life as an amazing resource. It's like having many, many magazines, art and photography, diverse cultures, travel logs and style mavens all at your fingertips. I highly recommend it.

Pink Loves Brown kindly shares her cheerful new dining room. Great bold colors.

I love this wall color and sweet bird from Encantada.






Interior shot of Turquoise, a lovely shop, located in Venice, CA, provided by Typefiend. The grey walls with the coral upholstry looks fantastic.









This photo was sent to Michelle Caplan by one of her clients who lives in London and recently bought these six pieces of Michelle's beautiful collage work. That mantel is amazing, too.




















Decor8 shares this colorful, vintage modern room originally posted on Apartment Therapy. I really love this room.














Amber in Norfolk shows off her new home and the fantastic job she's done decorating. I love her colors. And love that McCobb credenza!

Go on...check out Flickr for what inspires you.

Hi I love the room that AT posted. It has the perfect balance in color. I have a danish sideboard very similar to that one. Beautiful!!!!

Hi--I was looking through your blog archives and was so surprised and happy to find your post about the "Keep Calm and Carry On" poster. I had seen it somewhere else before and figured it wasn't possible to find one anymore. I ordered one for my office and it has already shipped! Anyway, I liked how you framed it using a standard size Ikea frame--could you just tell me if you had a mat cut, or how you did that? It seems like the poster is quite an odd size. Thanks--love your blog, too!

Hi Julie B. -

I'm so glad you like the blog, and that you found your poster. It is odd sized and I used an Ikea Ribba frame with a pre-cut matte. It does trim off a bit at the top and bottom of the poster, but not so much that bothered me. You could probably trim the matte a 1/2" top and bottom and it would fit perfectly. Good luck!

Julie B. said...

Thanks so much! Is it just the standard Ikea mat that comes with the Ribba frame when you buy it? If so, yay!

sfgirlbybay said...

Yes, Julie B. - it's the standard matte, and very inexpensive.
