instagram worthy: @overtheocean_com.

this is another one of those instagram worthy accounts that may incite wanderlust or at the very least some very serious lifestyle envy. it’s the account belonging to @overtheocean_com, aka Birgit Sfat, who after running her company Over The Ocean in San Francisco, packed it all in and moved with her beautiful family to live in rural Portugal, and then finally landed in one of my favorite cities, Lisbon. her photographs share their exploration of that beautiful city, its culture, new projects, and family life at home and afar. their adventures have really made me miss travel abroad more than ever but in the most inspiring way with something to very much look forward to. enjoy following @overtheocean_com for some gorgeous imagery and an always beautiful and slower way of life.

  1. Something about this post makes me want to exhale, smile, and cry all at once. What a beautiful collection of charm and serenity. I appreciate your work, creativity, and eye for beauty!

  2. Victoria – I love your posts and certainly find them inspiring in every way. However, I am bothered that so many of these swoon-worthy interiors are not “American”. I can always spot the foreign interiors by their beautiful floors and fabulous ceilings (in this case vaulted brick!) and gorgeous windows. I have always felt the Europeans understand windows so much better than Americans. But since we are all stuck with typical American construction (excluding of course thing from the early last century) – what can we do to capture the lovely and compelling ambience of these yummy European interiors when we have square-cornered ceilings, straightforward floors and rather boring windows. .

    • that’s a very valid point, kristie! i hadn’t thought of it that way, but you’re quite right. i guess it’s mostly the interior decorating i’m inspired by but you’re right that we all can’t easily achieve these architectural features! i will definitely keep this in mind and try and mix it up a bit more. thank you!
