friday finds / sfgirlbybay

weekend greetings! I’ve had a really busy week, working on the paris guides for you (part one is posted and part two is coming soon), and have a good friend from san Francisco arriving for a nice long stay, so i am very ready for the weekend! this week’s finds are very eclectic, with a bit of a vintage-modern edge, so i hope you enjoy. it’s the long beach flea market this weekend, too so perhaps I’ll run into you there. have a good weekend, one and all!

xo, victoria

  1. i’ve got a mad crush on these mid-century modern willy guhl planters, especially when they’ve been repurposed in unique ways. I’ve seen them as table bases and of course, planters, but i love seeing them at use in bathrooms as a pedestal sink like this one in alys beach house designed by the iron gate. i found one on rejuvenation, but i can’t use in my tiny bathroom, so if you’ve been on the hunt, this one is on sale.
  2. this is another incredibly beautiful bathroom design photographed by laure joliet and styled by colin king for architectural digest. it’s none other than kirsten dunst’s bathroom, designed by jane hallworth. i love that lovely privacy curtain around the gorgeous copper bathtub.
  3. excuse me for a moment while i take a brief nap. i just love this bedroom so much, and it has such a calming effect on me. i love the ticking stripe sheets, and the pretty green vintage blanket is such a nice pairing — it’s from folly & fine, a fab vintage homewares shop I’ve recently discovered.
  4. isn’t this just the prettiest summer cocktail bar set-up? it’s by designer amy neunsinger and kate martindale’s from an episode of the creative duo’s new home design show CAPTURING HOME on the magnolia network. I’m putting it on my must-view list.
  5. i love this little corner of french interior designer Marianne Evennou’s office. the antique fireplace and vintage settee look so great together, and i love the addition of the modern black & white photography prints to give the room a bit of a dramatic edge. you can see more of her beautiful designs on Instagram and her website.
  6. I’m such a huge fan of Marseille, france-based artist Sarah Espeute’s incredibly unique embroidered table linens. this one she created for paris design week, and it’s just so charming. i have a round dining table, so i’d love to commission a custom tablecloth from her with some kind of seashell or seafood motif.
  7. this is one very fabulous dining banquette designed by leanne ford for fashion stylist dani michelle and featured on domino. the dark heavy wood table and bench and such a great contrast to the bright white built-in banquette. the artwork is pretty fab too. the entire home tour is definitely worth a look, again styled by kate martindale and photographed by amy neunsinger.
  8. this is another of leanne’s signature looks, and i love the cabinet-turned-cocktail-bar with its antique gold shelf backing. i feel like could possibly be a great DIY project for someone a bit more talented than i am in that area. but if you’re in the same boat, it’s a custom cabinet complete with sink built for leanne by wood & wrench. sometimes, it’s just best to leave it to the professionals!
