friday finds - the bright and beautiful / sfgirlbybay

i’ve really gone for the bold and the beautiful for this week’s friday finds and why not? it’s spring of course, so why not go a little nuts and add a few bits of color around the house? even if you’re just adding some pretty cut poppies to your table or those inexpensive trader joe’s daffodils, bringing in a bit of color really can lift your mood. have a wonderfully colorful weekend, everyone.

  1. honestly, i could probably never be quite this brave, but i can still utterly admire this bold, modern look from @piotrparadowskistudio. it’s a chic apartment of a young creative couple in Warsaw-Powiśle with an eclectic and very cool mix of designer pieces from the ‘60s and ’70s. so groovy!
  2. sometimes all you need is a colorful bowl of vintage matchbooks to brighten up a coffee table or credenza. they just don’t make these old matchbooks the way they used to but whenever i see some in my travels i always grab a couple to add to my collection. i find some old matchbooks on etsy or the flea markets from time to time, too.
  3. i love the idea of this floating glass display case from @femte.til.venstre and the way she’s painted the inside cabinet to add a touch of color really makes her collections stand out proudly. i think you could find an old cabinet like this on etsy or your local flea market or salvage yards and make a fun diy project out of it.
  4. remodelista shared this beautiful new Showroom Concept in new york’s West Village. it began as a ‘pandemic lockdown project’ started by French-born, NYC-based architect Olivier Garcé, an apartment-as-gallery collaboration with furniture designer Ian Felton. so very fabulous. and he’s just bought an apartment in lisbon with the same genius idea in mind. more to come on that!
  5. sometimes all you need to take your bathroom style to the next level is to hang a pretty bathrobe, such as this one at marston house’s winter home in Provence featured on the maryn (a wonderful blog if you’ve never seen it). i love that feminine and pretty bit of pastel color. for the full home tour pop on over to their site.
  6. another idea for adding unique style and a pop of color is a collection of vintage pottery. i have quite the collection and it keeps on growing! you can never have too many unique handmade pieces of pottery in my humble opinion. i love the collections from sunday shop, one of my favorite homeware stores in new orleans and have ordered quite a few pieces from them since they ship — hurrah!
  7. here’s a beautiful example of adding some bold color this time by simply upholstering a cushion for a vintage mid-century danish modern ercol-style sofa and chair. it’s such a bright and cheerful look created just by adding a few new fabrics — simple and yet so effective.
  8. how do you go about modernizing a 250-year-old villa? you might add an incredible tufted orange sofa to start! this is casa mina — a new design project from @quintana.partners — to see more of it click and swipe left.
