not only is the owner of this beautiful new york brownstone a talented interior designer, but Tara Oxley is also a restaurateur. domino took a peek into both her charming exposed brick home and her Brooklyn-based organic restaurant, Eugene & Co. so this woman has talent in spades — clearly a stylist with a very eclectic vision, she’s made both spaces feel warm, welcoming and comfortable. a designer after my own heart, tara likes to collect pieces from her worldwide travels, each with a unique story behind them — my favorite kind of home furnishings. for a full home tour including design resources and a look at the interiors of her restaurant Eugene & Co. visit domino.

credenza hunting.

mid-century modern credenza / sfgirlbybay

i hit the rose bowl flea market today, in search of the perfect vintage credenza or dresser. i saw plenty and at very good prices, but nothing that hit just the right spot. i’m on the hunt for a long, low credenza for the bedroom and something in a light wood. all the ones i came across today were much too dark. so my search continues! i’d like something mid-century modern and fairly simple — so i’m searching chairish, etsy and craigslist. i looked a few new options, too but they haven’t the character i’m hoping for. i just love these looks.

jenna lyons apartment in nyc. / sfgirlbybay

this week’s friday finds are bit on the feminine and flirty side. i’ve just been really inspired by these eclectic and colorful looks lately. could be a little of that parisian chic has been rubbing off on me, perhaps? i hope you find some inspiration here, too. have a great weekend, everyone!

xo, victoria

  1. did y’all see jenna lyons updated digs in new york city? wowza! i have a feeling we’re going to be seeing quite a lot of that very eclectic and feminine look around very soon. this apartment (below) pretty much nails it!
  2. the apartment dk is constantly super inspiring to me and they carry beautiful one of a kind and very rare vintage collectibles. this room is just one example of their beautiful finds.
  3. pretty paint colors, and i’m rather drawn to the statuesque woman this room has on display. we found something similar at the flea markets in lyon and she’s on her way to super marché’s next collection.
  4. perhaps domestic goddess are on trend! i found this pretty lady popping up on a home tour a Barcelona-based photographer on the socialite family this week, too.
  5. i love everything about this look — you know i’m a sucker for a vintage portrait painting! but this color palette of navy and pink had me at hello, too. très chic. we have some great vintage portraits coming to the shop in january.
  6. Inspired by nature and harmony of spaces, this Leaf chandelier has light, delicate features but with a modern twist. Different from most styles i’ve seen out there lately, it blends into both contemporary and vintage-inspired spaces.
  7. i quite like the idea of this sweet looking (and very affordable) Convertible Corduroy Headboard Pillow. a great alternative to the traditional headboard and looks cozy, too.
