all new nook.

i got it into my head that i’d like to move the little ikea HÅVET sofa bed that was in my office, out into the breakfast nook, because it gets a lot of nice light off the sun porch, and it would be a nice spot to blog from. so i dragged the darn thing (it was like a dead body) out there to the nook, and i think i quite like it. the office has more space for actually getting work done now, so that’s a plus as well. more on how i redecorated the office space soon.

    We have the same sofa bed and our guests always comment how compfi it is. One of our slats just broke though ;( I am hoping I can get a replacement. Looks like a lovely nook that you created now.

    It looks like the perfect spot for a Sunday nap!
    What happenend to the cart of herbs? Those pics were some of my all time favorites on SFGirlByBay!

  4. What a cozy spot! The mix of patterns is so charming!

  5. I am loving that star burst pillow.

    you really are one of the coolest broads on the whole planet. love the rolling cart of books. and i’m drawn to the used-in-ness of the blackboard wall. your style continues to dazzle.

  7. katiedid says:

    Love the cart and everything else too! Looks like you have even planned for guests to stay.

    I love it when you invite us in, Victoria! Looks very cozy, although I did love the gorgeous plant cart in that sunny spot, too. And the books on wheels are genius!

    As a fellow compulsive rearranger, I’m always delighted by these posts. Rearranging always makes my home feel “fresh” somehow.

    So very cute. Love the space. It looks so happy and lovely.
    The chalkboard wall is amazing!

  11. So beautiful. Everything just looks perfect!

  12. Natsumi says:

    aww your whole wall is a chalkboard! I love it. And I love your tea pot cup nook too!

  13. Julie says:

    It looks really, really great! I’m such a sucker for constantly moving things around. My husband will walk into a room and say, “Wait, where did that table go, and didn’t we have a different coffee table yesterday?!!” Keeps things new I guess and keeps me happy;) xo

  14. Erin says:

    I think your house might be my happy place. Mind if I come over and play sometime?!

  15. karen says:

    what a fab space! love everything about it and in particular your kaleidoscope cushion ;-)

  16. kathy says:

    thanks for sharing more photos of your home. you could do that every day and i would not tire of them. the images are always lovely and inspiring!

    and, while i’m not the first to comment on it, could i place first “dibs” for buying that (book) cart whenever you may get sick of it? please and thanks and wishes for a good day!

    kathy

  17. That IS a nice place to blog from – love the natural light (and the colourful accessories!)

  18. Wow, I adore this little furniture move. All those fun patterns and pillows really make the space.

    Love it, love all the pops of bright colors and pink. And the book cart! Maybe I’m in the minority, but I prefer this cozier nook over the more spare look with the herbs.

  20. victoria says:

    thanks you guys! and the kaleidoscope pillow is from fine little day!

    I love fine little day’s cushion in your shoots!
    Perfect!

  22. Again, I can’t get over the coolness of your chalkboard wall :D

  23. nicole says:

  25. Nice space! I’m the same way. Things constantly move. Especially after the Holidays, early fall and early spring. It’s almost unavoidable! ;)

    Funny I just received the same splash pillow in the mail 2 days ago (with 3 more to mix and match in the living room and around the space). I’ve been pondering about ordering them for over a year now and suddenly I see them everywhere. They are fun for sure and child friendly (easy to wash the slip cover). Also have a big black chalkboard wall and have absolutely no regrets! Nobody can resist playing with it.

    Looks great!! Love the shot with the sunlight streaming through. So cozy and pretty!

  27. Ellie says:

    Hi victoria,

    Love the pillows and sofa. Can you share where you found the other pillows besides. Thefine little dayone? Xxxx

  35. Zoe Stagg says:

    Happy sigh. It really couldn’t be more beautiful. I adore it!

  36. Tiffanie says:

    This space is divine. I adore it. The book cart is brilliant. So many stacks of books over here, would like a cart like that just to keep the ones from the library separate from the rest (kids can check out basically an unlimited amount of books at the SF public libraries).

    Beautiful!

  37. Sara says:

    I just love it!
    So pretty and bright
    Perfect

  38. Steph says:

    wow so beautiful! Victoria, where did you get your colourful throw – its fab?

  39. Alison says:

    This is inspiring to say the least.
    Such a perfect mix; black, white, pops of color, great textiles and vintage pieces.
    This is what my house wants to be.

    Also, I love your blog.

  40. Steph says:

    great space! where did you find that fantastic throw blanket on the sofa?

  41. Molly says:

    I love a sunny, cozy nook! And that family of cushions on your sofa bed are so colorful and fun :)

  42. Roz says:

    First off, Victoria, I have a major girl crush on you. (Phhuuu! Feel much better now!)
    Your new and improved bLogging nook is a dream. I may be painting a wall of our condo with the chalk paint and I love to see all the erased inspiration above your eating nook. Just saw some purchasable dinnerware at Crate & Barrel in a sand and stone color (Camden Collection) that I was going to mix and match. Too bad I don’t have the open cabinetry like you that I could throw some black paint on and have amazing contrast. LOve youR mind and how it spill out onto your computer bLog page daily! thank you…Xxo

  43. Book stand is so pretty, just love the images. Can tall alot about a person with a few images of their home.

  44. susan says:

    gorgeous • GORGEOUS • g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s !!

  45. Karissa says:

    I adore the book stands, chalkboard walls and the hanging poster! The pops of soft pink really stand out and look lovely against the grey and white.

    Hi Victoria,
    So adorable, love every square inch! Where did you get the gorgeous pink flower pillow from! I’ve been looking for a pillow with pink bursts that’s not too modern and I love it! Thx for sharing your home! love love love love love!

  47. Melissa says:

    I love your dining set. Is that table a Saarinen? Do you know of a more budget friendly alternative?

  48. Meghan says:

    I love love the way you have focused the “oh darling, lets be adventurers” on the wall. Funny, I have that print too. I love it:). Your blog is beautiful!
