happy friday, everyone! i hope you’ve got some fun weekend plans! i’m excited because i have a house guest, which means i get to show her around beautiful laguna. it’s laurie, founder of elsie green, my partner in super marché so it’s always so inspiring to get together with her and brainstorm new ideas. this week’s friday finds have me inspired too, so i hope some of them rub off on you as well. have a beautiful saturday and sunday — the very best days of the week!

xo, victoria

  1. i love everything about this beautifully tiled space — it’s taller silvestre photographed by coke bartrina, a charming homewares shop in madrid, spain. if you’re not traveling there any time soon, you can shop online, but i’m putting this beautiful place on my must-visit list.
  2. how pretty is this incredible bespoke lighting fixture photographed by nicole franzen? i’d love to create something like this for myself. it’s probably beyond my diy skillset, but a girl can dream.
  3. this is such an inspiring and eclectic living room from the line nyc. it’s not an actual living room, though but instead the interior of their beautiful new york showroom which they continuously change up.
  4. i love the mood of this wallpapered room and these gorgeous vintage wall sconces from nomibis, an online antique shop in reims, france — definitely a shop after my own heart!
  5. these are the most fabulous chairs. one could even say they are ‘totally tubular, man’. sorry i couldn’t resist, but i do love a grand vintage chair!
  6. this is such a pretty little dining nook. i have a big crush on those gorgeous vintage italian mirrors and the rattan bistro chairs are perfectly charming. throw in that beautiful wall color and it’s perfect.
  7. i’m a sucker for any kind of glass cabinets and these charming kitchen shelves are perfect. again, i love the color they’ve painted the inside of the cabinets and the way they make this vintage collection pop is really lovely, too.
  8. i really love @doitbutdoitnow’s eclectic kitchen with its dried eucalyptus branch hanging front and center and those pretty paper lampshades, too. the shelving is really great, too. functional but oh-so-charming.

radhaus beer hall in san francisco with oversized floral arrangement on wood block bench dining bench. / sfgirlbybay

WILLKOMMEN to Radhaus, san francisco’s newest beer hall, located in one of my very favorite bay area landmarks — the very historic Fort Mason Center for Arts and Culture, smack dab right on the beautiful bay. Radhaus looks fun, and a great spot for brunch — and it’s got that charming communal essence of a German beer hall but with modern interpretations of traditional Bavarian cuisine. think BRATWÜRSTL, potato pancakes, and JAGER SCHNITZEL, and naturally a whole lot of good beer. we’re going Saturday-casual in french sneakers, a sleek jumpsuit paired with a polka dot top, and because it can be foggy in the city by the bay, we’ll layer up with a cozy fringe scarf, denim jacket and bucket hat. while you’re waiting on your bratwurst to arrive, i suggest reading the good liar by Nicholas Searle — i just finished this suspenseful story that interweaves the present with the past — think tinder for some very sly seniors with lots of twists and turns.

color story: fresh-squeezed.

for this week’s color story how about a little fresh-squeezed orange juice to start your day? not literally, but figuratively we’re bursting with some vitamin c with that classic color orange — so fresh and sassy, is it not? a little orange goes such a long way to making a bold statement, and i’ll admit, i can really only take it in small doses, but those cheerful bits are just enough to make a big impact. whether it’s displaying itself in beautiful blooms, or some pretty upholstery or perhaps some mid-century modern bauhaus artwork, i think orange is just smashing around the house.

inspiring modern bedroom photographed by nicole franzen. / sfgirlbybay

this week’s instagram worthy account has been at the top of my must-follow list for as long as i can remember. i’m not sure when and where i first discovered new york-based, but always traveling photographer @nicole_franzen but it was admiration at first sight. nicole is a triple threat — literally the trifecta of talent behind the camera — she shoots interiors, travel destinations, and food all with equal skill and will make you want to eat, get on a plane and redecorate, not necessarily in that order. she just makes everything look that good and captures her clientele’s imagery perfectly on point. so get ready to be inspired — and for more beautiful work from nicole, be sure to visit her website.

charming apartment in sweden with eclectic mix of vintage modern decor. / sfgirlbybay

this is one petite, but very charming abode in Malmö, sweden. it’s an eclectic mix of vintage modern and new that blends together quite beautifully. the creative couple who lives here have used the space wisely, with those perfect, but oh so very functional small bentwood stools (we have a pair in super marché right now) — they can be pulled up for extra living room seating, and look so cute around the dining table. i love the charming kitchen, the art gallery wall in the living room space, and most especially love the trio of vintage paper lanterns in their bedroom. there’s lots to get inspired by here – have a look around this beautiful swedish apartment.
