are you ready for the holidays? i sort of am — but i’ve not decorated a lot or gotten a tree yet and i’m not sure i will this year as i like to keep things simple when it’s just me here. but i did string white fairy lights all over the garden and balcony, which looks quite nice if i say so myself. i like a lot of white candlelight at Christmas, too and i got some of these pretty votives that give off just the prettiest glow! i hope your homes are looking merry and bright right now, too.

xo, victoria

  1. this is one very cozy-looking freestanding fireplace. i’d love to put one of these in my wee cottage but not sure what the fire marshalls around laguna beach would say about it. but, oh how i miss having a real wood-burning fireplace and i love this one a lot.
  2. this is just the loveliest eclectic dining space, and i love these mismatched vintage chairs, as always i’m a sucker for them and especially around a mid-century modern saarinen dining table. pair that with an oversized paper lantern and you know i just go gaga.
  3. now if you want to keep it simple, like me, with christmas decor this year how about this unique decorating idea? i love that she’s used a foraged tumbleweed as a kind of ‘mock tree’ with delicate little silver and gold ornaments hanging from it. a beautiful pine branch would do nicely, too and i think the whole bit of styling is smashing.
  4. sigh, is this not the dreamiest new york apartment? stylist and designer colin king can do no wrong in my eyes and while his brooklyn abode is small and so simple, and yet just utterly beautiful. he really just knows how to use shapes and negative space to create a room that’s really much more a work of art.
  5. how about these stunning built-in bookcases for inspiration? it’s a home in marfa, texas captured by @william.jess.laird for architectural digest. it’s such a warm and cozy space to relax and read, i might never leave. visit the full tour here on arch digest.
  6. i find this vintage chair to be quite the work of art, too. and those floors just give it a whole lotta extra oomph! it’s the beautiful home of julia rouzaud of good moods in Le Touquet, a small seaside town in northern France with a view of the english chanel —  and you can see the full tour featured in milk decoration.
  7. as always, artist and designer kirill bergart finds the best vintage treasures for his los angeles shop, and these gorgeous chairs are just one example of his most excellent sourcing and curating for one of a kind objects — for both County Ltd, and his interiors brand, Counter-Space — check out his very inspiring website for more.
  8. here’s another exquisite library and this one you are most welcome to visit, and even dine there. it’s the used bookstore cafe inside the mercí paris shop and i’ve never been to paris yet without a shopping trip to mercí followed by lunch in the cafe over a good book. if you are planning to visit paris sometime soon, this is a must-stop destination you won’t want to miss — never fear though, you can shop online, too.

One response to “friday finds.”

  1. Ah, again, lovely. I always love your Friday finds.
    That elliptical table with the Akari light, so elegant.
    Love the tiles and the libraries. We have an interior design show here (which is quite good I think) what is very strange (for me) is that almost none of the houses have any amount of books worth mentioning. It’s as if their living room died or something. So impersonal.
