My Favorite Things: The Toran

February 1, 2016 • By

The Toran aka decorative door hangings. Take a look at their history and where to find Torans!

I love a good Boho vibe – whether over the top layers of color and texture or that one, special, well-edited piece of ethnic art that makes a room come alive.

An interior should be like a person – well-traveled – and full of memories.

One of my favorite travel souvenirs is a Toran. (Trust me, I never knew what they were called, despite having loved them for years.) A toran is a colorful door hanging that welcomes guest at the entrance of homes in Hindu cultures.

But these lovely textiles can be hung anywhere – click through and you’ll see the creative ways bloggers, designers and other creatives are using torans in their homes…and in some cases…boats!

10 Amazing Bohemian Chic Interiors

July 16, 2015 • By

I just found out I was secretly voted “Most Likely to be Bohemian” in college…

Seriously.

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.

Modern Moorish Style with Villa Maroc’s Deganit Cohen

June 19, 2015 • By

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
