welcome back to my friday finds, friends. this week it would appear i’m super into green because these images all have some form of greenery among them. i also just wanted to pop into say thank you so much for the warmest welcome back! i haven’t had a moment to reply to all your lovely comments individually as it’s been a really busy week — i’ve been restocking super marché with our latest vintage french finds and getting back into the swing of being a working girl again! but your kind comments have really made me feel most appreciated, so thank you so much!

ciao! xo, victoria

  1. how pretty is the light in this lovely little kitchen photographed by ceruleansurf on vsco. i love vsco and for those of you looking for inspiring work, check out their galleries, and if you’re looking for a photo editing app, it’s been my go-to app for years and years.
  2. interior designer Jono Fleming’s parents’ farmhouse lounge room is just so cozy. i love the flagstone fireplace and rustic open beamed ceilings paired with the simple terrazzo floor. i could see hunkering down for the winter here quite nicely.
  3. isn’t this a fabulous old workbench repurposed as a dining room credenza? we see these in france a lot on our shopping trips for super marché and my partner elsie green often picks up a few for her shop (there’s one in stock now), so keep that in mind should you love this look as much as i do.
  4. i don’t want to get ahead of myself in regards to holiday decor (because i hate that!) but i do like this idea of a fern artfully draped over a pendant lamp for a subtle, but very effective christmas decoration. the whole dining space is quite pretty anyway, so who’s to say ferns are just for the holidays, right?
  5. i love everything about this pretty picture window by @david.fernandez.studio, but i especially wish they made buildings like they used to. all the ornate molding, interior turquoise shutters, and that fabulous awning just create such a special space for a simple window. sigh.
  6. talk about your wonderful old-world details, this bathroom hits the spot! it’s the home (or i should say chateau!) of french architect luis Laplace. these charming double sinks would get me to remember to wash my face every night before bed for sure!
  7. as her instagram caption says, “Maybe the best terrazzo ever? (Or at least most photographable)”. that’s for sure. i love the look of this tile in seville spain photographed by interior designer @martha_mulholland and it would look smashing poolside, or perhaps in a bathroom!
  8. this is such a pretty fall color palette and j’adore the lighting wall sconce. it’s from portland-based maven collective whom i’ve mentioned before but her vintage shop deserves a second (or third!) mention because her eye is sublime and her finds just so special. she posts them to her instagram so be sure and follow.

yay, we’re back to virtually traveling and today and we’re headed to visit our friends to the north in Montréal, the largest city in Canada’s beautiful Québec province. i was once here visiting my aunt & uncle many, many moons ago, and i’m itching to get back to this charming french Canadian city. but today, it’s not french food we’re savoring but instead, a good old neighborhood pizza joint, called vesta. vesta is the Roman goddess of home and family so prepare to make yourself right at home here. who knew canned tomatoes could look so charming as part of the decor? and i don’t know about you, but now i’m really hankering for a glass of vino rosso and a Margherita pizza! since it’s getting chilly up north it’s time to start layering up, casual yet in style! we’re pairing a mod print top with straight leg black jeans, fun and comfy boots and we’ll be keeping warm in a quilted leather jacket, and a green cashmere beanie and scarf. while you await your mates, check out The Liar’s Dictionary by Eley Williams. if you’re a ‘word person’ like me you’ll love this story of emily, whose job it is to locate ‘Mountweazels’ — fake entries deliberately inserted into dictionaries. such a fun and unexpected read!
