collecting: ceramics / sfgirlbybay

collecting ceramics of all kinds has become my latest hobby and i hope to take it a step further very soon since a new ceramics workshop has recently reopened in laguna beach. i’m signing up for classes at arttime barro and cannot wait to get behind a pottery wheel again. i tried it once at the row dtla’s still life ceramics and found it to be so very zen. anyway, i started looking around for some inspiration for shapes and styles i like and would hope to learn to make one day, and thought i’d share. if you’re not into making your own there are so many great resources for collecting handmade pieces on etsy, and even instagram if you want to go on a hunt, and chairish and elsie green are both great resources for vintage ceramics, too — and i often have a few vintage collectibles at super marché, too. from serving pieces to incense burners there’s an abundance of interesting ceramics to begin a collection of your very own.

friday finds / sfgirlbybay

happy friday, my friends! i’m getting rather colorful with this week’s friday finds. i suppose you can blame it on summer — the season just brings out those beachy sunset hues for me. it’s all pretty eclectic, too but i hope you find some cheerful inspiration. have a wonderful weekend, one and all!

xo, victoria

  1. this sweet desk of @anjademmerath’s reminds me of my teenage bedroom where i had a built-in wall unit – so 70’s! but this is from montana furniture who designs and makes all kinds of modular furniture. practical, and space-saving but also great looking.
  2. these are lovely textile prints shared by @leifshop. they’re from a new brand called soil to studio and her collections made in rural india look beautiful. follow both @leifshop and @soiltostudio on instagram for more inspiration, too!
  3. what a fun, whimsical, textural look from @societyofwanders who we featured on last week’s instagram worthy post. they truly have a way with styling mismatched prints and i love this summery color palette.
  4. talk about your charming nooks! i just love this coral pink built-in from @nicolinebeerkens and the coordinating pink & white tile floors from @pophamdesign are simply smashing together. the whole look is such a creative use of space and a very clever and attractive storage solution.
  5. this is such a lovely little work of art by Hamburg artist Henning Kles and part of @heroldian_journal’s fabulous art collection. but it’s also the unique little display above the radiator paired with the work of art that i love. i’m always a fan of the unexpected placement of artwork and this hits the spot for me.
  6. this entire home tour designed by YSG is madcap cool, but it’s this chic vignette i fell in love with. i’m not even quite certain what all these objets d’art are (especially the quirky pink object on the left), but i love the shapes and color combination immensely.
  7. the u.k.’s devol makes some of the prettiest kitchen cabinetry around, like this one as pointed out by @witanddelight_. i love the contrast of the dark shelving with the pink cabinets. it’s styled so beautifully, too.
  8. i’m a real sucker for any room with floor-to-ceiling french doors allowing all that light to flood in and this studio space is simply charming. again the color palette is summery and quite pleasing on the eye. i do love pairing pink and yellow together.
