this week’s friday finds feel very fall-ish. we are into mid-october, afterall with halloween and then thanksgiving just around the corner. it’s rather hard to believe this year is flying by so quickly. but here i am, embracing a new color palette, one that’s appropriate to this time of year. i hope you have a chance to cuddle up with a good read this weekend and celebrate the season.

xo, victoria

  1. i just adore this simple but oh so elegant dining room with its magical gold saarinen dining chairs, furry flokati rug and beautiful lighting fixture. the room itself has exquisite natural light as well — all those lovely floor to ceiling windows. sigh.
  2. i don’t know if i’d have ever considered ochre-colored walls, but this bedroom certainly looks dreamy and the deep yellow walls work perfectly with the subtle stripe of pink in the throw. an unexpected but delightful pairing!
  3. these chairs! they’re haunting me. they keep popping up all over the internet and i want one of my very own. i love the curves, the mod look, i simply love everything about them. not only are they fabulous to look at, but they also appear to be quite comfy as well. smashing!
  4. i love this beautifully styled vignette from @jacqui_turk, a Sydney based Interiors and Lifestyle photographer. it’s a favorite of hers, too, from a series of images shot for @houseofstylepodcast — A podcast celebrating Australian designers, artists and personalities. i simply must have a listen.
  5. i’ve become somewhat obsessed with this artist (i believe those are her ceramics above, too). meet emma gale, a painter and clay artist out of australia. i’ve been contemplating inquiring about a commission from her, but i want a huge painting and the shipping alone may put me under. a girl can dream, though. have a gander at her beautiful work.
  6. more ochre. i really like the look of this very laidback living room situation. cosy layered throws and pillows make it the ideal place to read or nap a long lazy afternoon away. it would appear that i am officially slipping into an autumn mood.
  7. i’ve long admired this beautiful nude painting (the whole house for that matter). i do love a good nude, and we found a couple of great vintage nude paintings while in france. i just added them to super marché.
  8. more cool chairs, this time from atelier de troupe — an l.a. shop! these are apparently called coda chairs and they are simply stunning. tubes and turns abound on these beauties. i must make is mission to find one of my very own (and in my price range).
