french-inspired space / sfgirlbybay

i came upon this sweet space belonging to blogger Rubyellen of cakies on pinterest and had to share. it’s such a whimsical, happy home space, that seems very french-inspired. and even though it’s in los angeles, it seems like a home you’d find in provence, in the south of france — eclectic, warm and very cozy. my favorite, piece de resistance is that vintage iron daybed — looks smashing with all those colorful pillows. what a wonderful mix! for the whole tour, visit cakies.

pin-worthy: irodorco / sfgirlbybay

hello friends, I do hope you are having a lovely start to the week. this week’s pin-worthy pic is a  no-brainer. take a peek at irodorco’s boards and i do believe you may have the same conclusion i did…romantic. i find this pinner from japan’s boards so incredibly beautiful, sultry, and romantic. romantic in a subtle way…finding it in the everyday; from the curves in a hand, to the way a bed is mussed or how perfect worn silver can appear by laying it out just right. the small moments.

there is no possible way i can say these are my favorites, because all of irodorco’s are favorites. randomly i choose these:

i always wish i could get the nerve up to do something really bold with prints. i love the rather exotic look of these — a little british plantation meets tropical panama canal. there’s some great textiles and wallpapers out there these days, like the rifle & co. pineapple print from hygge & west, and this amazing print above by KLAUS HAAPANIEMI. i think a perfect spot to go bold with a pattern like this is a powder room — freedom to go over the top in a room you don’t spend that much time in. baby steps, perhaps!

tuesday’s girl: blue q socks.

tuesday's girl: blue q socks / sfgirlbybay

have you ever seen blue q socks? it’s one of those things i’d never seen before, and then in the span a few short days these hilariously adorable and sometimes a little snarky socks were popping up before my eyes in the most unusual spots — my local art supply shop, and then the beauty supply store. i saw it as a sign, and bought several pairs that words were just calling my name! “Screwing Up Is Part Of The Program” – oh yes. “Love Ya, Mean It” or the ever popular “men ruin stuff”. yes please. check ‘em out. put some sassy spring in your step.
