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.

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.

friday finds.

happy friday one and all. i hope you’re doing well considering all the craziness in the news these past few weeks. i’m not here to talk about that, though, and rather invite you to a bit of an escape — even quite literally as you’ll see as you read on. it’s a mixed bag this week on friday finds but i also feel a bit of wanderlust peeking out from behind a few of these images. happy trails, even if it’s all just in your imagination. Monday’s a holiday so we’ll see you back here on Tuesday!

xo, victoria

  1. this is such a perfect example of how to give new life to a regular old, boring corner. @femte.til.venstre hung a precious art piece painted by her father in this charming corner and built upon it, adding a simple bench and bookshelf and then styling it all perfectly. the lamp is a great touch, too.
  2. okay, this is where the wanderlust comes in — floral expert extraordinaire chelsea fuss is someone i’ve followed and internet befriended for years now, and i’m pretty excited to share with you that she’s hosting a flower and garden retreat in lisbon, portugal and its surrounding countryside. it’s one of my favorite places in the world, and the perfect place to learn more about floral arranging from talented chelsea and stay in beautiful inns while you’re at it. i’m trying to see if i can get there myself this may. you can learn more here.
  3. and speaking of getting away, did you know that this old hudson, those folks inspiring us with amazing home renovations also offer long term and short term rentals in hudson, new york? it’s true — like this beautiful dining space which is part of one of their long term residences. they’re all really lovely abodes.
  4. this home with its gorgeous tile floors almost feel like it could exist in portugal to me, too, but it’s in another beautiful part of the world, a home in marseille, france, also a favorite city of mine to visit. you can see more of it and more beautiful french homes on the socialite family.
  5. i guess i’m in an old-world kinda mood because this home is definitely ancient. it’s a stunning renovated home in havana, cuba and yes that’s another city you should try and visit if you can. havana is one of the most special places i’ve ever been to and i can’t wait to go back.
  6. but, of all the tile i’ve shared today and prior, this just may be my new favorite tile pattern. it looks like a pattern of happy polka dots, but not overly childlike. it’s just perfect, especially in this simply styled space.
  7. this farmhouse kitchen has the perfect solution to hiding unsightly plumbing or storing the contents of your shelves should they not be display-worthy. i love a curtained kitchen sink and this is a sweet one.
  8. here’s yet another pretty but functional storage idea — i love the idea of this floating shelf. it’s perfect for leaning artwork and displaying your favorite collectibles without taking up a lot of valuable space and looks chic while it’s working hard for you.
