separated at birth.

y’all seemed to like my ‘separated at birth’ post, and i really enjoyed the challenge of matching images up, so i thought i’d take another go at it, and i think i’ll make this a somewhat regular feature here on sfgirlbybay. this time, i’m matching up beautiful interior images from lonny magazine with some super inspiring vintage ensembles*. would these people belong in these rooms? i think maybe they just might.

  1. I love how you’ve matched the feel of each pair as well as the color – that’s what really makes this features so compelling. I could totally see each lady inhabiting her coordinating room!

    I gave my advanced students the challenge of designing a room from an outfit – similar idea – they are doing a great job & I plan to post the results on my blog next week. I love your pairings, it really gets the imagination going, huh?

    What a great idea. I love the pairing. Thanks for all the work.

  36. Joan says:

    Simply stunning, Victoria! How clever the concept is… you make the matches look easy, but we know what it takes– a great eye, amazing persistence at making each image “perfect” (hence the long night sitting over your laptop) and true professional know-how about design and art. It’s a post like this that make SFGB such a stand-out — unique, funny, colorful, smart. You rock! Keep ’em coming, and definitely do a series with the guys.

  37. victoria says:

    thanks so much, joan! good to see you at the flea market, too! :)

    Great matching! Still blown away that I’m older now than Anne Bancroft was in when The Graduate was made …. eek.

  43. this series is so much fun! you have a real gift for matching up imagery like this. i love it!

  44. honeydove says:

    Absolutely love these. So spot on. It’s a great decorating tool, imagining yourself as a starlet from your favorite era and plop yourself in your dream scene. Keep up the good work!

  45. Kelley says:

    This is BRILLIANT! I love it. The Mary Poppins pairing really made me chuckle, it was so perfect. :)
