friday finds / sfgirlbybay

welcome to the weekend! it was a short work week due to the fourth of july holiday, so i had to really focus to get my work done. i’m definitely in summer mode, and the weather has been pretty glorious, so it’s hard not to scrap my posts and head to the beach! never fear though, i am here with this week’s friday finds, and i’ve loaded up the shop with some fun vintage (and new) curated finds. there’s also a brand new newsletter that will launch this weekend as well. if you’re not signed up, you can do so here. have a great weekend everyone!

xo, victoria

  1. i love everything about this 19th-century apartment in Barcelona. abandoned for years and found in a state of decay it had recently been used as a workshop and warehouse but has been given all new life by Sabine Wlokas, a Polish-German architect who specializes in renovating traditional old homes in need of some TLC. check out the full tour — it’s stunning!
  2. this fireplace mantel is very simple, but i find it so lovely. photographed by the ever-talented kara rosenlund, it’s rae’s, a charming boutique hotel designed by Tamsin Johnson in byron bay and my very favorite bit is that beautiful tile on the hearth.
  3. this beautiful bedroom certainly makes the case for having a low platform bed. there’s something just so zen about it for me and this bedroom at Numeroventi, an artist’s residency in a 1510 Palace with rooms you can rent in Florence, Italy is definitely a peaceful-looking space to rest your tired head.
  4. j’adore this incredible new york penthouse bathroom designed by Neal Beckstedt and featured on desire to inspire. the color palette is so relaxing i might never get out of that tub! and where he found those rather large, unusual sea sponges is a mystery i’d love to solve. i love those!
  5. speaking of unusual, i’d never have thought to create these, but i love the idea of gilding oyster shells with gold paint and then using them as little trinket dishes, or in this case, salt & pepper cellars. add a small wooden spoon, and voila — quite an elegant way to serve up your spices.
  6. this is a really lovely vignette of collections and love the wave-worn beach stones as ‘art’ as well as the small vintage wood dice she found to add interest to her coffee table collectibles. all of it works together so beautifully.
  7. how’s this for an exceptionally unique window? like a modern porthole, it was photographed by pia riverola who literally makes everything she shoots look magical. she is definitely one to follow on instagram.
  8. i always love a good photobooth and there’s nary a one i’ve passed without jumping in to snap a few photos. it’s one of the things i look forward to when in paris — the photobooth at bonton, an adorable children’s shop in le marais. see you soon, old friends!
