i’m trying to keep the inspiration upbeat again on this week’s friday finds — we’re getting a wee bit whimsical and quite quirky this time around, with some looks that are bound to cheer you up and perhaps give you a touch of summer nostalgia, too (at least i hope so!). have the best weekend you can manage to create for yourselves under these somewhat limiting circumstances and take good care!

xo, victoria

  1. are you yet familiar with ‘happy-making’ London-based artist and designer Luke Edward Hall? if not yet, i think you will be seeing a lot of him soon, and you’ll fall in love with his very beautiful, eccentric and colorful world. i loved this fun feature story about him in house & garden — i think you will, too.
  2. i’ve long had a crush on these vintage dining chairs from sunday shop. it’s one of my favorite decor boutiques in new orlean’s cute magazine street shopping district, so if you get the chance do stop in since they’ve just reopened their brick and mortar shop, or as always you can shop online.
  3. @pauline_chardin captured this sweet wee corner of one of my very favorite paris cafes — peonies, a cleverly combined coffee and flower shop in the 10th arrondissement. and peonies has a cute little online shop to keep us satisfied until we can travel again.
  4. could you go for all green walls? i’m not certain that i could but for some reason these bold walls put a smile on my face. perhaps a powder room — small but impactful!
  5. i’m simply smitten with this chic striped curtain and i’ve been trying to imagine where i might add one to my own abode. i was thinking of something like this hung on the glass door to my guest room for privacy — charming, no?
  6. and speaking of charming i quite like the simple but cheerful artwork in this otherwise restrained dining room. i’ve always loved a ledge or shelf filled with ‘resting’ artwork, so this one was a winner for me.
  7. t magazine recently did a story about this former summer camp turned personal residence and it’s like a thing of dreams come true. meet camp kent — In the kitchen, originally the backstage area of the camp’s theater, the new owners preserved the names painted by former campers and asked friends and family to add theirs over the years.
  8. i love this quirky little vignette featuring designer orla kiely’s velvet spot flower upholstery fabric. the vintage artwork and that incredibly gorgeous rug really make this nook over the top whimsical and special.
