friday finds.

i’m back with friday finds after taking last week off for a bee sting. i never thought i’d say those words, but man-oh-man that bee buzzed me good! this week i’m all healed and feeling rather light — pale green is predominate in this post. no idea why except it’s a happy color for me, and we could all use more happiness in us for the long haul out of covid. will it ever end? love you, wear a mask, pleeeeeeease, and have a restful weekend one and all.

xo, victoria

  1. how fun is this color palette from milan-based architect @federicoguariniarchitetto? it’s got a very retro fifties vibe and i quite like the zigzag tile backsplash back there in the kitchen, too. and tiled those floors? to die for.
  2. i’m obsessed with these vessels and i’m not even 100% sure what they are. i believe they are willy guhl designed diablo planters from the 1950’s and ever since i saw leanne ford repurpose one as a powder room sink on restored by the fords i’ve been on the hunt. they aren’t cheap!
  3. how wonderful is this living room ceiling painted with a perfectly named paint shade called ‘Early Spring’ from @fileunderpop? i’ve never painted a ceiling a contrasting color but this one looks most smashing!
  4. i love the idea of a single citrus branch in a simple vase — i’m gonna steal this idea from @alexandrasklar. so spare but oh so pretty. we’ve got a lemon tree on the property here and i’m getting my clippers out this weekend!
  5. this is really bright and bold paint treatment, too. i love the ‘faux’ wainscoting they’ve created simply by stopping the paint a little more than halfway up the walls. the entire home featured on my modern house is pretty great. check it out for more colorful inspiration.
  6. this fun and funky bedroom makes me grin. i mean who thinks about adding a colorized planet of the apes photo print above their bed, paired with some granny chic furnishings? and yet it works for me!
  7. are you guys following artist @maryamkeyhani on instagram? her brand of whimsy is just what the world needs right now — from her fanciful paintings to her costumes and hats (that she wears just about everywhere, including the supermarket!). visit her amazing website too for loads of inspiration — it’s bound to put a big smile on your face.
  8. the idea of painting your trim in a contrasting shade on the inside is a really good one, and i love this pale green window trim. if you’ve got some unique (or maybe really boring!) windows, get out a can of paint and go to town this weekend. heck, it’s only paint so if it’s a fail, just cover it back up.

  2. Can you please provide more information regarding the light fixture in the second picture? I loved the gardening vessel, but the light fixture really caught my eye.

  3. Your blog is such eye candy! Thank you for all your work in presenting and gathering in such a beautiful aesthetic.
