friday finds / sfgirlbybay

tgif and the long weekend couldn’t come soon enough. i don’t want to elaborate on it here since you’ve most likely arrived here for a bit of an escape from the news but i think most of us feel enough is enough. i’ve really become this person who’s drawn to colorful design more and more lately and i think it could have to do with all the joy it evokes. the images here on this week’s friday finds are all quite bold, eclectic, and a little bit whimsical. exactly what my heart needs right now. i’m off next week working on some new projects i’m excited to soon share with you. i hope you have some lovely plans with friends and family this memorial day weekend and have a moment to remember all those we’ve lost. sending lots of love.

xo, victoria

  1. i’ve been inspired by Provence-based pauline chardin’s photography and Instagram feed for a long time now, but in the past few weeks, she’s shifted her perspective a bit and gotten much more colorful. i’m really feeling this color shift more and more myself, so i really love where she’s going with this. she also has a truly beautiful cookbook out with gestalten publishing, A Spoonful of Sun: Mediterranean Cookbook For All Seasons, so check it out.
  2. i really love this sleek modern bedroom and the attention to detail in the milan home of architect @PieroLissoni and his photographer wife @veronica_gaido, featured in T magazine’s spring Design issue. i’m not usually one for primary colors per se, but the contrasting colors and patterns really look incredible here.
  3. this bedroom styled by toast uk is pretty special, too. it’s so simple and very minimalist, featuring their TRIANGLE PATCHWORK COTTON QUILT but it looks so cozy and warm. their quilt is crafted from cotton and hand-dyed, handwoven striped ikat, then quilted with neat rows of Kantha stitching by hand. just beautiful.
  4. this is another beautiful, bespoke quilt, this time featured in Makeup artist and stylist Sofie de Mylius’s bedroom in Østerbro in Copenhagen. her charming home is filled with sentimental vintage pieces like the quilt, handmade for her by a close friend. the full tour is here on alt.dk.
  5. i’ve become quite the fan of handmade ceramics of late and these incredible bowls made by artist jane ormes had my attention immediately. i’ve been looking into pottery classes and can’t even imagine the talent that goes into this kind of detailed design and glazing. i’ll be lucky if there’s not a huge hole in the bottom of any masterpiece i might create.
  6. i know the color palette of this bathroom is a bit unexpected, but it too, had me at hello! i loved the pale pistachio green paired with the rust-colored trim and that whimsical neon nude print above the tub. i just love when i stumble upon a special room like this that’s completely unique in design and thought, one i’ve never seen before. that’s originality at its best.
  7. this rough stone-and-cement mid-century modern fireplace is really uniquely beautiful, too. it’s the home of writer Susan Orlean who along with her husband completely restored this classic home in los angeles designed by Austrian-born architect Rudolph M. Schindler. the entire home if pretty spectacular and you can view the full tour on dwell.
  8. i know it may seem as though i’ve become completely obsessed with lrnce lately, but well, it’s true. i have become smitten with everything they create. i love this muted but colorful area rug, new from the modern homewares and lifestyle brand based in Marrakesh. check out all of their beautifully styled collections here.

  1. Hi! I just want to say how much I love your blog- I’ve read it for years (when you were still in San Francisco), and it’s one of my most favorite places on the Internet. I tend to wait to look until the weekend so I can see a few posts at once. Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks for all the always lovely content- so inspiring, always.

  2. I am head over heels obsessed with Lrnce. I even bought wine from El Vino (wine made in Mexico – delicious, by the way), because the label was designed by Lrnce. I am trying to figure out how to cut the bottle and save it ‍♀️
    You blog and photos are a feast for the senses – as are the people and places you are passionate about!
    Cheers (try the wines)
