danish modern dining room at admiralgade 26. / sfgirlbybay

on a trip to copenhagen awhile back i was most fortunate to have an amazing meal at the very delicious restaurant we are visiting today — the truly lovely admiralgade 26. it was late in the afternoon, i recall, and we just happened by it and even though i think they may have officially been in between servings, they welcomed us with open arms. there were a few other diners there, finishing up, but when a restaurant is somewhat empty, you’re never sure what to expect. but i’m here to tell you it will be a meal you won’t soon forget. i remember my filet of sole perfectly and i can’t wait for the day i can go back and try more of their incredible menu. it’s also completely charming inside in that danish modern way with mismatched vintage dining chairs and an elegant, but warm minimalism. we’re going to dress the part, in a stylish wool jumper and turtleneck, gucci tights and sassy black boots. it’s chilly in copenhagen right now, so we’re topping all this off in a long puffer coat, beanie and cozy scarf. while you wait on your friends to join you, how about reading Motherless Brooklyn by Jonathan Lethem — a brilliantly original, captivating homage to the classic detective novel by one of the most acclaimed writers of his generation recently made into a film by edward norton.

color story: the life aquatic.

maybe it’s my current accessibility to the sea, but this week’s color story is all about living the life aquatic (one of my favorite wes anderson films, too, btw). there are many shades of aquatic, ranging from turquoise blues to deep-sea darker hues and they’re all quite soothing, and sometimes they even feel a little exotic to me. like a trip to a foreign port, an afternoon in a Moroccan riad, or a sail through the Mediterranean, these blue jewel tones just exude calm, but also often take a dramatic, sometimes stormy turn. here’s a few of my favorite blue hues and some decor accessories to get you there — and if you like this vibe, you might like to check out my aqualand pinboard for more. bon voyage to the life aquatic.

holiday guest prep.

guest bedroom welcome package. / sfgirlbybay

it’s kind of hard to believe it’s already November and the holidays will be quickly upon us, but i’m here to give you the heads up — they’re almost here! this season i’m hosting lots of family and friends who’ll be visiting over the next couple of months, so i’m always excited to get my house ‘holiday guest ready’ and find nice ways to welcome them to my new abode, too — it’s my favorite thing about the holidays. i’m partnering with Grove Collaborative this season to get both those goals accomplished and quite easily. Grove Collaborative delivers a whole lot of healthy household products that are plant-based and sustainable to your front door that you order online — so how can you say no to that when the holidays can be so hectic? extra time is such a gift — to yourself!

if you’re into trying Grove out, and i highly recommended it, new customers who sign up using my link can get this pretty fantastic 5-piece gift set for free with a $20 minimum purchase! the cleaning set comes with products from one of my long-time favorite brands, Mrs. Meyer’s, including their holiday hand soap, holiday dish soap, and holiday multi-surface spray — and it all comes in this cute (and functional!) Grove caddy with Grove’s walnut scrubber sponges, and a 60-day VIP trial, too. it’s perfect for prepping your house for guests, especially when you choose from one of Mrs. Meyer’s holiday scents — peppermint, iowa pine, and orange clove. also, when new customers spend $39 or more, you’ll also receive a free Grove ceramic sink-side tray, in addition to the other free items!

and even if you’re not hosting the holidays this year, the 5-piece gift set makes for a really lovely hostess gift, too. also, for existing Grove customers, when you order anything, Grove’s walnut scrubber sponges will be automatically be added to your cart! (please note, sorry but Grove only ships to the lower 48 states at this time — so no Canada, Hawaii or Alaska right now.)

to get my house holiday-ready i ordered quite a few lovely items from the Grove to make my house guests feel right at home. i think you’ll find Grove carries a lot of your favorites. i’ve put together a little welcome kit with some of mine, including an essential oil burner with soy tea lights, a few of my favorite essential oil scents (like grapefruit, lemon and eucalyptus), a room spray bottle (should they like to create their own scent), facial masks, rosemary + lavender soap, fresh flour sack towels, and bath bombs. they may never leave! so check out Grove Collaborative and have them deliver your favorite healthy household products to help get your home guest-ready for the holidays!

vintage home decor from jayson home. / sfgirlbybay

one of the best things about moving, is redecorating. and if you know me, it’s sometimes a lot of the reason i move at all — i’m just wired to constantly be changing things up! i love to find new ways to reinvent my style, or let it evolve and finding new resources for home accessories and furnishings is key. i was invited by jayson home to have a look at their latest catalog and choose a few items from their beautiful collections. one look and i was in, because not only does jayson home carry some unique and eclectic new pieces, they also have a vintage collection and you know how that grabs my attention! so today, i’m giving you a little sneak peek at some corners of my new laguna cottage and in it, the pretty new and vintage pieces i selected from jayson home, as well as a few favorites i think you’ll quite like.

i loved jayon home’s Vintage Chair collection and this bistro chair is perfect for my bedroom fan, stacking books, or extra seating when i need it; and i just flipped over this Vintage French Iron Shelf in my guest room. I’ve styled it with some books, candle and a few of my favorite vintage objet d’art. and just below their Vintage Chinese Basket is ideal for stacking my outdoor blankets for chilly nights on my veranda.

jayson home’s look is really unique to a lot of online brands in that their pieces have an unexpected and personal point of view — and by that i mean they just don’t look cookie-cutter out of a catalog (even though they may be!), but are decor pieces you can decorate around and build on to make your home uniquely you. i love the cool shapes of pieces like their LINEA CONSOLE and nico lamp (below), and the SENOFO CARVED STOOL, and great artwork, too — like this PLATO BLACK & WHITE painting. i also like that it’s got a vintage-modern, very mismatched vibe — my raison d’etre when it comes to decorating. so here’s a look at some of the jayson home pieces i took home, and a few i think you might like to bring home, too!

art gallery wall in citrus house in hancock park. / sfgirlbybay

welcome to citrus house — an aptly named home for just how juicy and colorful this place is! located in charming hancock park (one of my favorite L.A. neighborhoods) it’s actually on the market, listed by jenna cooper LA. this is one very eclectic and curated collector’s home and although it’s got a lot going on, it’s all very well done. i like looking at spaces like this one because it’s loaded with intricate inspiration everywhere you look, and every time you take another peek you see something new. for instance, i love their sea-faring collection of vintage sailing paintings and the sculptures over the mirrored mantle. the collection of moroccan lanterns hanging from the other fireplace is quite a lovely idea as well, especially for a non-working fireplace. go ahead, see what you can see and steal some grand ideas! for the full tour and if you happen to be in the market visit jenna cooper LA.
