it’s been a crazy, but very fulfilling and productive week! i’ve launched a new furniture collection with the inside, and i’ve added a ton of new vintage treasures to the super marché shop. as i get older, and often wonder about the future of blogging (is anybody reading!?) i feel fortunate and very excited to be heading my career in some different directions, albeit ones that align with sfgirlbybay and my passions — furniture design, interiors and my love of vintage. i think this week’s friday finds is landing me in that sweet spot, too. i hope you guys like all that is new around here, and if you have any suggestions for me, do tell!

xo, victoria

  1. this lovely home does not look like it once housed an italian shoe factory! not even close. i love the vintage lighting fixture and all the pretty pastel elements.
  2. for some inexplicable reason, this oversized white pear makes me very happy. i don’t know much about it, other than it’s whimsical and utterly delightful. that Italian mirror is just my jam, too!
  3. it’s blossom season, at least here on the west coast and that couldn’t make me happier. photographer nicole franzen, who we featured yesterday captured these beauties. i wish they’d bloom all year long.
  4. i quite like this charming bedroom vignette and vintage dresser, not to mention that pretty pink lamp and sweet bedspread! it all just feels so cozy together.
  5. speaking of lamps, i’ve been seeing a return of these sweet mushroom-shaped lamps of late. this one, the Flowerpot lamp by Verner Panton is an iconic Danish design piece — simply timeless. it’s 50 years old and still looking bright and beautiful.
  6. this is a very eclectic and layered looking bedroom — just the look i was hoping to create with my collaboration with the inside — a layered, mismatched look that you can make uniquely you.
  7. i’m really enamored with CB2’s new cypher black marble dining table — so daring, so sophisticated! i’d love to see it get really funky with a mix of mismatched vintage dining chairs. oh la la.
  8. i’m probably never going to get over this shelving curation by interior design guru leanne ford (and also photographed by nicole franzen). i seriously study it to see just what exactly it is i love about it so much, and i think it’s just so cohesive, even though one might say cluttered. it’s just vintage clutter put together perfectly!

  1. you and me both lady, you and me both. So thrilled to see all these amazing projects you have going on!!

  2. I read your blog everyday Victoria. It’s part of my morning routine. I feel badly that there aren’t more comments. It must feel like a lonely pursuit sometimes. I for one would hate to see you go away.
    Smart thinking though to pursue other avenues for your passion.
    I’ll be here as long as you are.
    All the best.

    • thank you, cece. i know how busy everyone is and people just don’t comment like they used to – also because often they read on their phones. but so grateful to know so many of you continue to read! thank you!!!

  5. I found your blog in 2010 when I plannend my first trip to San Francisco from a little town in Germany. Since then it is one of my favourite places to read in a quiet moment.

  6. Please don’t stop blogging. I read it everyday and so look forward to it. You are one amazing talented women and I have learned a lot from your blog whether it is on travel, people to follow, design tips eats as well as pure pleasure to start my mornings.
    I generally don’t comment (just my thing) but guess I should!
    Again, love everything you do.

    • Ha! Don’t worry, I love blogging and will be around as long as everyone still wants me! People always ask what do you want to do next and I say “THIS”! :) Thank you so much!

  7. I’m reading as well! You are my one and only blog. Here from Vancouver, Canada I feel like you bring a European flair to my day.
    Please don’t stop and thank you,
