as you read this, i’m up in san francisco, prepping for a pop-up shop brought to you by my super marché and elsie green along with a few friends. on saturday, march 23rd we’re turning lux studios into a very eclectic ‘le petit appartement’ where you can shop the entire apartment filled with vintage treasures we’ve scoured from france. if you’re in the area, please do come by and see us — i’d love to meet you! until then, this week’s friday finds are all very eclectic, too. have a great weekend one and all!

xo, victoria

  1. i so admire this very colorful space. the various shades of paint seem to add new dimension to the room — it’s a rather alice in wonderland-like look of falling down a beautiful pastel rabbit hole.
  2. i still keep seeing sculptures decorating the internet, and i love this pretty painted ceramic lady because she’s so unique and delicate looking.
  3. i quite like this vintage bust too, because he’s paired in such a modern space with a playful pink color palette. i’m going to hunt for more busts like this when i’m next in france for super marché.
  4. my tiny atlas has a brand new book launch coming our way and i for one, cannot wait to see it! looks like they’re coming to NYC for a launch party on march 27th at the aperature foundation, so if you’re in the area, i would highly recommend making a date with it!
  5. L.A.-based interior designer and prop stylist brady tolbert asked instagram the question “left or right?”, and quite honestly, i couldn’t decide on which of these guest rooms i liked best, so i said “both”! how about you?
  6. i love a good color pairing and this pale pink and olive green color combination of throw pillows had me at hello. olive green is such a blast from my childhood past, but paired with pink it’s got a fresh new look!
  7. who doesn’t want ‘to go to there’ like right this minute? milk decoration is one of my very favorite sources of french inspiration and their instagram feed is full of inspiration, too. this image of the amalfi coast is just one big giant sigh.
  8. this is such a pretty little nook, is it not? the socialite family always has the best home tours and this one doesn’t disappoint, either. love this vintage velvet beauty — the whole corner just oozes charm.

singapore's OverEasy Orchard diner designed by hui designs. / sfgirlbybay

this week we’re headed all the way to singapore to a modern diner that i think would have the fonz freaking out just a little bit over its distinct femininity. meet OverEasy Orchard, an All-Pastel Diner brought to us by hui designs. it’s nostalgia meets the jetsons in this all-american joint located in liat Towers. OverEasy Orchard might have you wondering if your burger and fries arrive with a pink dipping sauce, but never fear, fonz, the menu is still quite manly, with items like Beer Can Chicken or smoky BBQ Baby Back Ribs, but they also serve up a wholesome Smashed Avocado Toast with Poached Eggs. whew! let’s head out for Orchard’s ‘Beat the Clock’ Happy Hour wearing a sleek Vegan Leather Jacket, matching boots, our favorite faded denim and a fun striped top that reminds us of soda pop straws — perfect diner-ware. need something to read at the counter? Sunburn is a tantalizing modern noir by Laura Lippman, a psychologically suspenseful novel about a pair of lovers with the best intentions and the worst luck. sounds juicy!

colorful painting of pink interior. / sfgirlbybay

this week’s picture this is a tad whimsical and features a few of my personal favorite artists and feature ‘interiors’. from the colorful world of french painter henri matisse to author and illustrator maira kalman these illustrations and paintings really spark joy for me. they’re colorful, quite primitive and one might even say some are a little juvenile, but that’s just due to their colorful, rule-breaking style — the dimensions and scale may be off on these interiors, but that’s their charm. if you like this particular style, i think you’d like some of maira kalman’s books including My Favorite Things, The Principles of Uncertainty, and the elements of style, and the works of contemporary artists like mamma andersson, bella foster, and genieve figgis. these kinds of works of art make me want to get my sketchbook and paints out and try my hand at painting again! enjoy.
