holiday weekend greetings, friends. it’s been quite a week and an emotional one for many of us but i think for now, i’ll leave my ranting and raving to my instagram stories where you don’t have to watch if you don’t choose to and keep this a safe space for you to unwind and find a little joy, perhaps a little inspiration without having to hear my opinions first. not that i’m not sharing them, because i am, but we’ll leave them on social media for now. i’ll be off for the 4th of july holiday, spending it with family and friends but back next week. i hope you’ll be doing the same and find some time for a little rest from the constant barrage of news. lots of love and good wishes.

xo, victoria

  1. this is a tranquil garden vignette that we can easily recreate in our own homes for a summer lift. add some pretty planted pots, or i even like the idea of an herb garden, and display some of your favorite dishware or ceramics. it just makes for a really pretty indoor garden space.
  2. living on a houseboat doesn’t always evoke the image of a modern vibe, but this incredible houseboat on london’s thames river breaks that mold. i’d love to live on this plant-filled, modern houseboat designed by LAB Architects and featured on the spaces. check out the full tour for some wonderful mid-century modern inspiration.
  3. lisbon continues to be one of my favorite vacation destinations and baixa house is my preferred place to stay. i love their simple, elegant but really inviting interiors. they tend to use an inspiring mix of modern and vintage to create a really cozy home-away-from-home holiday stay, so you feel most welcome – like staying with a good friend.
  4. if you’re a fan of English artist and designer luke edward hall like i am, you’ll be most pleased to hear the news that he’s designed and created a chic new collection called Chateau Orlando, a new brand featuring some divine homewares and clothing with his signature whimsy and color.
  5. i’m a big fan of brooklyn-based artist christina zimpel, and i love this charming display of her artwork over her fireplace mantel. her paintings center around the characters and observances of her daily life, but her childhood in Australia remains a particularly vivid point of reference for her colorful and sometimes very whimsical works of art.
  6. i really love the colorful art collection in this charming paris townhouse, located near the Canal Saint-Martin. featured on the always inspiring socialite family, this home tour is full of great design ideas and definitely worth a visit.
  7. it was such a lovely surprise to see an old vintage portrait of mine on @monogramdecor’s instagram feed. i sold courtney this painting when i was moving from san francisco and scaling back my portrait collection and i love seeing it look so beautiful now living in his home. her history continues.
  8. if you didn’t see on instagram, i’m headed back for a trip to my beloved paris in late july! ouí! and somewhere i usually visit at least a couple of times while i’m there is merci paris. i love both their café and the sheer joy of shopping there — i always pick up a few pieces from their linen collection — like these pretty tablecloths.

  1. Thank you Victoria. That painting in the 6th picture is gorgeous, it reminds me of Ilse ‘d Hollander’s work. Yesterday’s hotel was also awesome.
    As for the things you don’t want to talk about, my heart is broken and I’ll leave it at that.
