we’re headed south of the border today for this week’s wear this there. i used to love visiting coqui coqui in tulum but now that they’ve shut those doors they’ve opened up meson de malleville. Situated in the colorful, colonial town of Valladolid, mexico, Meson de Malleville is a beautiful 16th century four-room sanctuary and actually the former home of coqui coqui’s founders, Nicolas Malleville and Francesca Bonato, who have lovingly opened its doors to guests in the spirit of warmth and family. they’ve completely renovated the enchanting building, maintaining the original moorish tile floors, walls and high ceilings with wooden beams. Every room is decorated in the distinct Coqui Coqui style, but each with its own unique personality, showcasing the couple’s furniture from family heirlooms to those gathered from their travels. it’s hot in this part of the world, so we’re grabbing a flowy floral dress, sandals, a sleek swimsuit and a nice wide-brimmed hat. while you’re taking your afternoon siesta, we suggest reading Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity, and Love by dani shapiro, another family story, albeit a tad darker — a memoir about the staggering family secret uncovered by a not so random genealogy test.

an arch can make all the difference — easily taking a dull room to dramatic with one very beautiful architectural element. so smooth and pleasing to the eye, right? whether they’re arched alcoves, doorways, windows or some other architectural wonder, i find the curve of an arch is just so special — like it took just a little more effort to achieve. when i remodeled my bathroom, i created a built-in, arched shelving unit in the bathroom for towels and other bath accouterments and i think it made all the difference. here’s a whole bunch of lovely arches to inspire you to perhaps go that extra mile and give yourself a pretty arch next time you remodel.

rosy's kitchen makeover via domino. / sfgirlbybay

today we’re getting an additional peek into a stylist’s beautiful kitchen makeover featured recently on domino. a friend of mine from san francisco, and so beloved around the bay area and beyond, she just goes by rosy, i asked her if we might share resources and a few more images of her pretty pastel kitchen, photographed so beautifully by seth smoot in collaboration with behr paint for domino. rosy selected the paint colors based around her personal collection of beautiful homewares and ceramics (sources just below) and the outcome is just so soothing but also dramatic — the perfect place to gather and cook your favorite meal. for the full tour, visit domino and be sure to follow rosy on instagram and visit her website for more styling inspiration.
