I just found out I was secretly voted “Most Likely to be Bohemian” in college…
I love globally-inspired design and expressing my inner gypsy, plus it fits right in with my ongoing wanderlust. Boho style is a great way to show off your eclectic (random?) travel souvenirs and create an international feel that reminds you of all the places you’ve been – or the places you want to go! I sometimes think of re-designing the whole house to suite the Bohemian style, but I think that Mr. H would have a mini meltdown. So for now, let’s just drool together over these amazing Bohemian inspired spaces.
Here are 10 Amazing Bohemian Chic Interiors.
The shop’s colorful facade got my attention as we drove past, and despite a tight schedule I managed to persuade my husband to turn the car around, drop me across the street and set up a meeting time for later in the day. It was the right thing to do!
Villa Maroc is bright, colorful and filled with layer upon layer of visual goodness. I needed to slow down to take it all in. A charming lady (who I later discovered was the owner’s mother) let me know that céramiques were discounted 20%. Everything – on the floors, the walls, the chairs, the tables, in baskets and boxes and bowls – clamored for my attention.
The feeling was warm and evocative of the past – but perfectly modern at the same time. READ MORE
So excited to be headed out soon to the Surtex show in NYC. We’ll be showcasing our on-trend travel-inspired artwork and surface patterns. Surtex is the largest art licensing show in the country. We’ll (try to) send some updates from the show…so watch this space!
Here’s part of our Water Lillies collection. Loving it!
Surtex is May 18-20. We hope to come back from New York with good news to share!
So in case anyone one has been wondering where I’ve been…yes, sometimes life happens and the blog takes a backseat for a few (minutes?). In the meantime, lots has been happening, both at home and away. We returned from the third leg of our progressive road trip. More on that later, but the bottom line is, our car is now parked near the Denver airport, awaiting our return and the start of phase four. (I’m thinking Santa Fe…)
AND – drum roll please – the paper strikes of our new Smith•Hönig fabric line are rolling in. It is so exciting to see the dream becoming real, and all those travel inspirations turning into products! Again, more later as we tweak (not twerk!) our designs.
The photo shows one design from the collection, plus a mood board of how it will be used in an upcoming project.
Plus, my design partner, Kellie Smith just launched her new paint line, Velvet Finishes. (She’s off having breakfast with HGTV super star Vern Yip at the moment, while I’m rededicating myself to the blog. No. Seriously.)
You can check her paint out here: www.velvetfinishes.com
So friends, we’ve got a lot of catching up to do. So many great new hotels we discovered on our trek across middle America. So many great swimming holes discovered by my lake-loving husband…So many photos…
This week’s photo challenge was a good one. I realized I tend to photograph angles, not curves…But here’s my shot.
Curves all around (and above), are seen inside the Greek Orthodox church in Capernaum, Israel, located on the Sea of Galilee. Every (curved) surface is gilded, painted and embellished…
Curves are also visible in the red exterior domes.
