one of my daily reads on decorating|style

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.

Happy Friday!
