the thing about bohemian

the thing about bohemian is that its all about the eclectic - its about collecting what you love and having it all sit together harmoniously in your space -
and what better incentive to make a purchase or acquire something than because you love it- because you want to look at it every day or better yet use it every day. the "bohemian" - distilled down is about just this- having things in your space that bring back a memory or that make you happy to be around - not something that's just in the space cause its the right color - oh and i think casual relaxed comfort enters into the equation in a big way! along with color, texture and layers.

these images are a favorite inspirations out of my design file - originally found in the pages of domino(tear) the home of amandapeet. i love that you can identify other styles in her decor but when they all come together they form something else. like the grain sack upholstered couch - a provencial flair nicely accompanies the mediterranean pouf and the black and white rug or the market basket under the desk paired with an asian styled lamp and a more modern desk. it all becomes seamless-

below are some fun pieces if your want your "collecting" to move a little faster than "every sunday" or "every time i travel"

vintage turkish pillows - pile them up with other pillows you love and be on your way to achieving a sophisticated collection you'll love
