A relaxed and light-filled L.A home

Hello! Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend?! I'm feeling especially rejuvenated today after a fun day out mushroom picking* in the forest on Saturday. On the way home we collected some apples from a friends garden too. Our supper that night was especially tasty - if only in our minds! Stuffed baked apples - Mmmmm! Anyway, on with the home tour! I was so excited to discover one of my longtime favourite bloggers Victoria of SF Girl By Bay has posted pictures of her new L.A home. Not suprisingly, it looks fab and truly reflects her blogging style with splashes of colour, midcentury finds and a relaxed, boho feel. Perfect inspiration to start the week. (Spot her cute doggy, Lucy, too!)

So light and relaxed - love it! And did you spot the doggy?!

See more pics of Victoria's home here and a full interview on Refinery29. You can also check out a tour of her previous apartment here (still dreaming about that pink colour on the wall). 

Victoria is also author of See San Francisco, the last time I was in San Fran was when I was 10 - I think it's about time I made another trip - don't you?! Everyone tells me it's an amazing city! Have you been?

Have a great start to the week!

PS I love how artist Chompoo Baritone is keeping it real with her recent 'behind the Instagram scene' project.

PPS in case you missed it, this relaxed studio is just the kind of inspiration we need to kick off the working week, don't you think?

* Make sure you check and then double check before consuming any foraged mushrooms. There are many guides online including this one, you can also look online for guides to mushrooms and fungi in your area.

A happy and relaxed, boho studio in L.A

It's Friday - oooo yes! I've been waiting for you! Although don't you feel sometimes the weekends go like this?! I'm finding Californian style so inspiring this week and after yesterday's home I went on a hunt for another happy space. And it came in the form of Justin Blakeney's studio in L.A. The industrial architecture makes a great backdrop - the huge windows let in an abundance of natural light, and I'm loving the high ceilings. But it's the vibrant colours and patterns along with the relaxed boho vibe which caught my eye. I know shocks of colour aren't for everyone (especially if you like the monochrome style) but hey, it's the weekend - and they're designed to be colourful right?!  

Justina Blakeney shared with kind permission.

If Monday morning came round and you were headed here wouldn't you feel just a little bit of a skip in your step?!

For more inspiration - Justina is the author behind fab book 'The new Bohemians'. And a ton more office / work / studio space ideas here.

Other links from around the web this weekend:

If you're in the mood for a little DIY project this weekend, I'm loving this key rack (although you might be tempted to buy a neon bag to go with it!).

How cute are these brightly painted sticks and shelves? If you're a bit of a dab hand, perhaps you could make your own this weekend?

Here in Sweden there are deliciously ripe apples all over the ground begging to be baked in a pie or even a comforting melted cheese and apple sandwich - mmmmm! 

Oh and if you're looking at doing up a child's bedroom I've just discovered Yorkelee's cute kids prints as seen in this pic (love the swing too!). In fact, they'd look good in any of these lovely children's bedrooms (inspiration galore!).

Have a wonderful weekend!

PS LAST DAY to vote for My Scandinavian Home in the Amara Interior Blog Awards - I'd be so happy if you feel like stopping by here to vote.
