happy friday one and all. i hope you’re doing well considering all the craziness in the news these past few weeks. i’m not here to talk about that, though, and rather invite you to a bit of an escape — even quite literally as you’ll see as you read on. it’s a mixed bag this week on friday finds but i also feel a bit of wanderlust peeking out from behind a few of these images. happy trails, even if it’s all just in your imagination. Monday’s a holiday so we’ll see you back here on Tuesday!

xo, victoria

  1. this is such a perfect example of how to give new life to a regular old, boring corner. @femte.til.venstre hung a precious art piece painted by her father in this charming corner and built upon it, adding a simple bench and bookshelf and then styling it all perfectly. the lamp is a great touch, too.
  2. okay, this is where the wanderlust comes in — floral expert extraordinaire chelsea fuss is someone i’ve followed and internet befriended for years now, and i’m pretty excited to share with you that she’s hosting a flower and garden retreat in lisbon, portugal and its surrounding countryside. it’s one of my favorite places in the world, and the perfect place to learn more about floral arranging from talented chelsea and stay in beautiful inns while you’re at it. i’m trying to see if i can get there myself this may. you can learn more here.
  3. and speaking of getting away, did you know that this old hudson, those folks inspiring us with amazing home renovations also offer long term and short term rentals in hudson, new york? it’s true — like this beautiful dining space which is part of one of their long term residences. they’re all really lovely abodes.
  4. this home with its gorgeous tile floors almost feel like it could exist in portugal to me, too, but it’s in another beautiful part of the world, a home in marseille, france, also a favorite city of mine to visit. you can see more of it and more beautiful french homes on the socialite family.
  5. i guess i’m in an old-world kinda mood because this home is definitely ancient. it’s a stunning renovated home in havana, cuba and yes that’s another city you should try and visit if you can. havana is one of the most special places i’ve ever been to and i can’t wait to go back.
  6. but, of all the tile i’ve shared today and prior, this just may be my new favorite tile pattern. it looks like a pattern of happy polka dots, but not overly childlike. it’s just perfect, especially in this simply styled space.
  7. this farmhouse kitchen has the perfect solution to hiding unsightly plumbing or storing the contents of your shelves should they not be display-worthy. i love a curtained kitchen sink and this is a sweet one.
  8. here’s yet another pretty but functional storage idea — i love the idea of this floating shelf. it’s perfect for leaning artwork and displaying your favorite collectibles without taking up a lot of valuable space and looks chic while it’s working hard for you.

  2. Hi Victoria, I couldn’t read items 3-6 because of the ad takeover. I was able to close 1 bigger ad, but not the smaller ad. Just wanted to let you know, thanks.
