When I stumbled upon a snap of this space on my quest for minimal geometric art, I instantly fell in love with the mid-century modern meets colorful bohemian vibe of Poppy Lane and Scott Gibson’s Australian abode. The proprietors of Pop & Scott (long time SF Girl favorite, one of my newest obsessions and home to a ton of modern Australian designs from furniture to artisinal pottery), along with their littles Lou and Frida, have made a comfortable home in this rental property (would you ever guess?!). Quite succinctly, The Design Files describes their space as a ‘life sized treehouse’ and I have to agree! With personal touches like Scott’s handcrafted furniture, Poppy’s super cool “dreamweaver” lampshades and art from studio pals like Bobby Clarke (love!), the home perfectly encompasses all that is Pop & Scott like a seemless extension of the showroom.

Keep scrolling for more peeks into the home and a few of my favorites from Pop & Scott.

friday finds.

it would appear this week’s friday finds are all about the blues. but not in a sad or bad way, i’m actually just feeling the blue hue in its very best light, which is to say, i love the mood shades of classic blue can achieve in decor. always stylish, chic and slightly romantic. here’s hoping for a great weekend, everyone. rest up, relax and see you monday!

xo, victoria

  1. the very beautiful atelier solarshop in antwerp looks like it’s well worth the trip. At any given time, there may be a pop-up shop, a restaurant, and an art gallery operating there, in addition to a regular studio workspace.
  2. these vintage paper patterns make my heart go pitter-pat. i’d love to turn them into fabrics and create a whole pillow collection.
  3. i’ve always loved this Raphael wallpaper pattern shot by @loismoreno_ via milk magazine. such a romantic treetop pattern.
  4. from blah to blue! need to give a room a bit of oompf? might i suggest a coat of a bold blue paint? this one looks smashing and pretty much makes this vintage dresser go from ordinary to alrighty!
  5. what is it about an argyle pattern that feels so playful? i love this patterned floored paired with two smashing shades of blue molding. definitely playful, and most definitely chic!
  6. san francisco’s new kelly wearstler designed proper hotel is a place at the very top of my “to stay” list. talk about playful! it’s over the top, but also fantastic.
  7. next stop, brooklyn! i’ve got my heart set on a stay at the waterfront williamsburg hotel on my next trip to new york. i’ve got a big crush on that tufted blue velvet settee!
  8. talk about your swoon-worthy french style, this flat in lyon is divine. if you fear painting an entire room blue, this idea of painted panels is pure perfection!

Chyl Café in brussels. / sfgirlbybay

it’s the weekend, so what a more appropriate place to relax and rejuvenate than a quaint spot quite aptly named chyl? A healthy kitchen with a seasonal menu that respects nature, cooked or raw, well yes, please. At Chyl Café you can expect a kitchen that reinvents healthiness on a daily basis. we’d love to drop by for Sunday brunch, and perhaps dig into one of the cafe’s delicious vegetarian or even vegan dishes.  A green spot in the middle of the big city of Brussels, where time stands still – if only for a little while. we’re thinking of going as colorful and casual as the place itself with our comfiest denim jeans, silky pink print blouse and Martiniano glove leather flats in fabulous fuchsia-pink. and getting right into the healthy groove of chyl, how about reading jonathan Kauffman’s book Hippie Food: How Back-to-the-Landers, Longhairs, and Revolutionaries Changed the Way We Eat? seems quite apropos.

cheers, victoria
