orange, white and green color-blocked hot air ballon. / sfgirlbybay

this may well be the busiest week i’ve ever had — no joke. i’m not complaining, but oh man, am i ready for the weekend. and, on monday i’m headed up to sonoma with bri for a few days of rest & relaxation with darling magazine. i’ll be sharing our getaway to timber cove resort on instagram, so tune in to share it with me. until then, here’s what’s inspiring me this week. cheers!

xo, victoria

  1. whilst in sonoma, we’re supposed to go hot air ballooning which is something I’ve always wanted to do, so please don’t rain — i really want to cross this off my bucket list!
  2. i’m a big fan of kip & co. but this green velvet bedding is just beyond. i love that shade! if you’re in L.A. you can find their goods at night palm, an amazing new shop in silver lake.
  3. this is fabulous place to do some weekend daydreaming, is it not? featured on my scandinavian home, it’s the eclecticly chic home of jennifer harrison of flea market fab.
  4. another lovely sleeping space. like me, milk magazine is on the hunt for inspiring instagram accounts to follow, and this feed they recommended from @julie_eye_see is a really good one!
  5. this rustic bathroom is just so gorgeous! i love the use of such colorful clay tile — proving once again that terracotta and yellow are on trend, as featured in @openhousemagazine.
  6. it’s cherry (and quince!) blossom season and i for one couldn’t be happier. it’s high on my list of favorite flowers. don’t miss this home tour from the design files.
  7. the creative couple that is Andres and Joyce of on a hazy morning photographed my house for vtwonen magazine last year and i kind of forgot all about it, but discovered their pretty images of my house on their site. have a look. their work is lovely.
  8. San Francisco’s new community workspace @theassemblysf hosts a kitchen complete with open-shelving much like that we featured on today’s wear this there. got some crates? looks like a manageable DIY.

wear this there: tokki.

wear this there: tokki japanese restaurant in paris. / sfgirlbybay

the newly renovated tokki — a japanese eatery in paris — is this spring’s spot to hang out once you’ve had your fill of baguettes and fromage. with an extensive menu from fresh bento boxes to thé vert tiramisu, their new interiors now match the alluring aesthetic of the joint. i personally can’t get over this farro jumpsuit and envision myself meandering the street’s of paris, showing off my look until i work up enough of an appetite to head to tokki for a full menu taste test. for a taste of culture from a different vein, we suggest the film her name is sabine a touching french film about famous actress sandrine bonnaire and her sister living with autism.

the bold and the beautiful.

green walls with ornate moldings and oversized art. / sfgirlbybay

i certainly don’t have the guts to go this bold, but i sure do admire it! this corner apartment in The Hague was created by the form makers — an interior design and concept studio in the Netherlands. the creative couple who live there are avid collectors (check out their beautiful blog the nice stuff collector and follow on instagram!) and were looking for a home large enough to display their stunning objets d’art and eclectic furnishings in a stylish atmosphere. the result is definitely colorful and very beautiful. their home reminds me quite a bit of abigail ahern’s amazing and dramatic aesthetic, with tall ceilings, incredible crown moldings, and those daring dark walls. bravo to going bold!
