hi guys, i hope this week’s been okay for you — that you’re staying healthy and cozy at home. i’m taking my job as one of the many distractors from all the news very seriously on this week’s friday finds and only sharing with you happy, helpful bits of inspiration. i got colorful and kitschy and a little bit all over the place, but my goal was singular — just joy. there are so many people bringing out their stir-craziness in the very best way on instagram, too, so be sure and look for the joy-bringers there, too — @amysedaris and @commentsbycelebs have been keeping me in good spirits!

xo, victoria

  1. my dear friend bri emery of designlovefest has created something new and beautiful for us — meet presently, a lovely website dedicated to mindfulness and beautiful videos providing us with a calm, meditative place for cooking new recipes and getting inspired. it’s just a wonderful online place to slow down from our busy lives. you can follow along on instagram, too.
  2. milk magazine just featured one of the most uplifting shops i’d seen in some time. meet sage and claire — they design homewares, apparel, and accessories that are handcrafted, bohemian, soulful and eclectic and though they are based in Australia, have their pretty products available online, too.
  3. i love the idea of beaded curtains, and yes, i know they’re very kitschy, they’re fun and in this room, they’ve used one not as an actual curtain but as wall art. clever and oh so colorful — just don’t let your cats get close. you can find a couple of crazy curtains here and here.
  4. my scandinavian home featured this really colorful and very cheerful home belonging to Cathrine de Lichtenberg. what a beautiful pink and black color palette for a kitchen with living green giving it an even extra bit of oomph. for more fabulous color inspiration follow her beautiful instagram feed.
  5. passerbuys is a great online magazine for home tours and this one of writer fariha Róisín’s apartment is a great example. the magazine features the homes of all kinds of creative and diverse women and all are most inspiring. in this example, why not organize your book spines by color if you’re bored at home — i know it’s crazy controversial, but what the heck. make yourself happy!
  6. i love this light and plant-filled Parisian apartment belonging to Jean-Christophe Aumas — the pairing of the masculine black leather sofa combined with all that gorgeous greenery makes it extra special. i found it on instagram shared by karel balas, founder of my very favorite design magazine, milk decoration.
  7. this outdoor patio space just puts a smile on my face. that pretty pink daybed paired with the cactus green vintage chair is just happy, is it not? an ideal spot to while away a quarantine with some good books if i’ve ever seen one.
  8. wainscoting is kind of an old school idea, but this painted version in glorious kelly green is nothing but modern and fresh. there’s nothing easier to achieve with a bit of paint, brushes, masking tape and a level to keep that line straight. perhaps a perfect shelter at home DIY project!
