I can’t remember where or how I found her, but I cannot imagine blogging, decorating or eye-candy life without her. She is Victoria at sfgirlbybay. :Bohemian Modern Style from a San Francisco Girl: She says her forte is ‘thrifty design’. I say she fits into my philosophy behind *happy living* in that she believes in "giving up the idea that having a great place means you’ve gotta spend a lot".
Victoria says "Part of my design philosophy is that I’d rather purchase a really well
made and possibly expensive sofa, dining table or any piece of
furniture that is the real focal point of a room, and then decorate
inexpensively around it."
I totally agree. I mean, who needs a $500 porcelain owl? (see current issue of Dwell Magazine for the owl). For this past week and next week Victoria is guest blogging over at design*sponge and so far her posts have been great. If you have some down time over the weekend I suggest you check it out. Also highly recommended: Victoria’s photos of her apartment in San Fran on flickr. I feel she has a style that can be appreciated by everyone.
