peaceful wall mural in modern room. / sfgirlbybay

happy friday everyone! how are you surviving the holiday rush? I’m barely making it through — so much to do, my house is a disaster area (think Lucy fur everywhere!) and i’m deeply in need of a mani pedi, but such is the holiday season — so very much to do and so little time to do it all in! I hope to catch up with all the chores this weekend and in the meantime, it would appear I’m feeling a bit ‘moody’ in addition to everything else that’s overwhelming, but at least they’re pretty and moody rooms. have a great weekend one and all!

xo, victoria

  1. in my stress, i’m finding this mural very soothing to look at. in both scenarios (see just below) it just makes the rooms.
  2. this is pretty sweet idea for a bedroom background — a tufted headboard that covers the entire wall looks pretty luxe, does it not? comfy, cozy and tres chic.
  3. i also quite like the idea of having a tufted banquette (in velvet, no less). it would be so cool to have this built into a quaint kitchen dining nook. it would really take the idea of an eat-in kitchen up a notch or two.
  4. artilleriet is one of my very favorite online shops when it comes to finding unique homewares and their holiday gift ideas this year are moody and most inspiring — do have a gander.
  5. i find this mural pretty romantic looking too — i’m not sure i could pull it off, but i really admire this kind of eclectic, over the top drama.
  6. this bedroom mural is very stylish, too! cleary, i’ve really had a crush on murals lately. if my home lent itself to this kind of look i think i’d try it in the bedroom behind my bed.

is it just us or have you been feeling like fleeing to a quiet chalet in the mountains too? days spent weaving down the slopes, nights over hot chocolate and board games. opportunities to wear stylish outfits in the abundance of layers, and layers, and layers. the anvil hotel in jackson, wyoming is the destination of our white winter dreams. they nail apres ski style like none other — deep blue exteriors, minimally decked out rooms with pendleton clad beds, and a beautiful laid back italian restaurant, Glorietta, fit for filling up after a long day adventuring through the winter wonderlands. as a california girl in the snow, we can’t wait to show off our best resort style with chunky knits, and a heavy biker jacket. there’s something about a snowfall that makes us want to bring out our very well read copy of little women and cuddle up in front of the lobby’s fireplace.

i think we’re all feeling the big bummer that is the instagram algorithm and while not an end of the world scenario, it’s indeed frustrating that one, your feed is not in real-time order, and two, you can barely see the inspiring work you seek and instead, what instagram assumes you want to see. how they come up with this is beyond explanation (have they ever given us one?) and entirely frustrating for me, so it’s a love/hate relationship i have with the app. so, when i can’t sleep or i am waiting in line somewhere i go on little hunts for new instagram accounts to follow. i have noticed that when you follow someone new, they — for a while at least — pop up in your feed quite often. so, although i could go on about the instagram woes, instead i’m going to start sharing new feeds i think you might like to follow. now, while this one — @trnknyc, is a retail account (see their online shop trnk nyc), it is no less instagram worthy — there’s loads of inspiring interiors here and more often than not, i find myself ‘liking’ their images — a lot. their homewares are lovely as well, so it’s a win-win. enjoy!
