vintage furnishings inside john derian's home. / sfgirlbybay

greetings from soggy los Angeles! we never get this much rain, and although personally, i love it, walking my dog lucy in it? not that much. but i do love getting cozy at home and i always get a lot done around the house, which always somehow gets me redecorating — good for me, bad for my wallet! i put up some new kitchen shelves this week, which i’ll share soon and i’m doing a little bathroom makeover which i’ve mentioned below. i hope you’ve got some fun home projects in the works, too. enjoy your long holiday weekend, and we’ll see you back here on tuesday.

xo, victoria

  1. who isn’t a fan of john derian? and john derian’s home? so inspiring! so many very vintage-inspired layers and yet he always manages to make it look effortlessly chic. this home tour is pretty sublime.
  2. this impromptu birthday table setting for artist & designer rachel castle is so cozy, don’t you think? brought to us by australian stylist extraordiare megan morton it’s no surprise — shes’ got style in gobs! i love the colorful velvet cushions from rachel’s shop!
  3. i’m in love with this Femme Fatale Wall Art print by artist Tobi Fairley from anthropologie. i’m just trying to decide if there’s room for her to live on my living room gallery wall. she’s quite lovely, though, isn’t she? i must find a spot!
  4. this vintage screen as a headboard is quite ingenious. it’s so feminine and yet, i really love the modern touches they added to offset her glamour — that lamp, those velvet pillows and the very simple but beautiful bedding.
  5. i love this mid-century modern cabinet — they just don’t make storage as beautifully as this anymore. and i really love the mirror. i’m on the hunt for an unframed vintage vanity mirror for over my bathroom sink and something like this would very much fit the bill.
  6. i love this Barcelona-based room so much — everything about its eclectic vibe makes me happy. and again, here are those great frameless vintage mirrors i’m on the hunt for. why do i think i’ll find them in europe easily but perhaps the hunt may be a little more challenging stateside. but i won’t give up!
  7. do our pets deserve art galleries? yes! why not? i’ve been thinking of creating a little vignette much like this one around lucy’s dog dishes and this is inspirational! mine might not be quite as grand, but i like the unusual and completely unexpected placement here.
  8. i really admire what @thelinenewyork creates in their showroom — a virtual living room to shop from, and their style is eclectic, impeccable and always inspiring. we’re doing a pop-up shop in san francisco in march with elsie green and super marché around this idea and i can’t wait to share it with you!

custom mirrors inside true true pizza parlor in toronto. / sfgirlbybay

true story: today we’re headed to toronto, canada. well, at least virtually. today’s wear this there we’re headed to true true a pizza parlor extraordinaire. this isn’t your typical red-checked tablecloth themed pizza joint, it’s much more pastel to be exact. true true believes in mastering the fundamentals of traditional pizza making and then taking it to the next level with locally-sourced ingredients, prepared fresh in-house daily with their signature dough and then hand-stretching your pizza to order. yum. who’s craving a slice right about now? we’re going casual today in a fun faux leather trench, a comfy cropped sweatshirt and our favorite jeans and sneakers. it’s still chilly in Toronto, so we’re adding this adorable hood-like hat. looking for a good read while they toss your pizza? try Rachel Kushner’s newest novel, The Mars Room — the wicked tale of a woman at the start of two consecutive life sentences at Stanville Women’s Correctional Facility, severed from the San Francisco of her youth and her young son, Jackson. sounds goooood and i loved her last book, the flame throwers.

pink velvet victorian daybed. / sfgirlbybay

i guess yesterday was galentine’s day, but today is the tried and true valentine’s day so i thought it might be fun to get a little romantic. some of these rooms may be a tad over the top when it comes to pattern play, but they still put me in the mood for a victorian love story — maybe some pride & prejudice, sense & sensibilities or a binge-watching of downton abbey? i’m down for any of that. velvety furniture is back in and if it’s got a little fringe, all the better. here’s some rooms to put you in the mood for love.
