the future kept.

there’s something so therapeutic about bringing the outdoors inside. especially during these colder months when depending on where you live, you’re likely spending more time indoors and there isn’t much greenery to see when you look out your window. health benefits aside, building your own unique collection of indoor plants is a lovely way to add color and personality to your home. and there are so many beautiful ceramic pots to choose from these days, though i still tend to prefer good old terra cotta pots — especially the ones that look like they’ve been around a while (check yard sales and flea markets for these classic beauties!). each of these soothing spaces is like a breath of fresh air thanks to their gorgeous potted plants. i hope they inspire you to adopt a plant friend or two.

should you be looking for a design palette that’s easy on the eyes, warmly welcoming, and never goes out of style — it’s the naturals. i can’t get enough of these camel-hued textiles, and warm woods — it says minimal without saying stark. add an extra element of depth by throwing in some bright eye-catchers and warm textures like moroccan rugs, tiling, or well-hung art. supported by clean white surroundings it gives accents every opportunity to stand out and make a statement — natural beauty is in!

i’ve just booked a march trip to london, so when i saw british stylist emily chalmer’s east london loft apartment pop up on marie claire maison i got giddy just thinking about visiting her london studio again — definitely one of my favorite stops. located in shoreditch, where there’s plenty of vintage shops and marketplaces, emily has decorated her apartment in the “Caravan Style” she’s so famous for — funky, eclectic and full of mismatched pattern. i’m a big fan of her books, too so if you like what you see here, check out modern vintage style and flea market style — both are sure to inspire you.

friday finds.

it’s the end of a long week, and therefore my friends, it’s time for my friday finds. i could mention all the political issues of the day, but i’m just not in the mood. instead, i bring you a little more of that pantone color of the year: green — in a variety of manner, from fashion to decor, good old green goes a long way to lighten the day. have a great weekend, everyone. xo, victoria

  1. it’s really rather amazing the impact large but very inexpensive paper lanterns can make in a room. design on a dime!
  2. fine little day’s rose poster print is oh so cheery and i love all that color.
  3. doesn’t this studio look like the dreamiest spot to work? filled with greenery, art and all that lovely light!
  4. belonging to photographer Anna Malmberg this is such an inspiring studio space too.
  5. this image by photography duo ulas & merve just makes me want to one, wear more colorful socks, and two — take a long leisurely but stylish nap.
  6. speaking of being lazy — where they create photographed by frederik vercruysse is a lush place i could sit and read the days away.
  7. don’t you sometimes kinda wish we still got dressed like this? i mean, she’s wearing ‘glovelets’.
