Woah. Where did March go you guys? As I was writing the date for today’s post I realized how this month just flew by! There’s been so much going on around here, which may be why I’m craving a more minimalist interior as our Room of the Week today… This bedroom belongs to one of my favorite […]

    It’s hard not to love a room with a pool just outside the door.
    Have you ever showered in one of those tubs? Total pain. I get that they’re pretty, but they are not practical.

    I looked at the full story referenced here but can’t find the name of the piece or artist who did the large scale gray piece in the first two photos. Does anyone know?

HOW TO STYLE :: A BOHEMIAN LIVING ROOM MAKEOVER

boho-before-and-after-living-room-makevoer-with-pier1-and-coco-kelley3

Since returning from Morocco with lots of treasures, I’ve been wanting to have friends over to put them to good use! But our average living room scene just wouldn’t do these items justice – I wanted to give the space a bohemian makeover so my girls could experience a taste of Morocco themselves! So, together with a little […]

    Great transformation! I have treasures from travels all over, and they really catch people’s eye. Carved chairs from Lamu. A three-foot-tall fisherman statue from Santo Domingo. A Dogon door from Mali. Textiles from Turkey and Morocco. They aren’t what you expect amid the French antiques–yeah, you can go boho with antiques as well as with MCM :)

    While I would never consider my style Bohemian, I absolutely LOVE that the ‘collected chic’ look is in style. I traveled all over with my flight attendant mom picking up beautiful pieces, and sometimes I feel weird putting them out because it might look too busy. But here you made it look so warm and inviting! I will have to un wrap those moroccan tea glasses I bought and put them on display soon! Thank you!

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 3.18

classic blue and white apartment by william mclure via coco kelley

I’m always so refreshed when I stumble upon a space I’ve never seen before, and this one in particular is calling my name today with its blue and white palette that feels classic and fresh with a hint of tropical …. Not to mention that sweet pup who obviously just decided to stay put throughout the […]

    It’s so interesting the way they have two very different window treatments so close together. But it works in a beachy way, as you say. I love blue and white…screams summer.

    Stunning room! A little too busy for my taste but well-done all the same. Sooooo lets talk about that ginormous live? turtle under the coffee table? What in tarnation is going oh here? Either that’s a family pet or the strangest prop I’ve ever seen!!?

    It is overwhelming. It is like they try to show everything. I love the blue touch but there are so many things around that interfere with design. Just too many book, albums and so on… It makes me think, they miss a shelve.

    The tropical notes in this space are refreshing and the blue tones make you feel as if you’re on an island. The white walls also create a light, airy feel. These are some great ideas to incorporate in our own decorating schemes.

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 2.18

If you ask me what a home needs in order to wow, I could point you to last week’s Room of the Week (top to bottom stunning) but I can also point you to a space like this… It’s fresh, it feels welcoming, and it’s easy to recreate in many ways but one: the art. […]

    I know what you mean about being tired of all-white spaces, but this shows why they get boring: few places are as interesting as this one. It is zen and spare without being cold and bare. The pops of color aren’t calculated or matchy-matchy; they are linked to very personal items.
    The art of course is important, but this shows as well that art can take many forms, including a quilt. As you say, anything goes as long as it isn’t a mass-produced poster (especially that Keep Calm and Carry On poster!!! Little Atoms had a podcast about how ironic it is that poster has become the poster child of mass-consumption posters).

ROOM OF THE WEEK 2.4

Raise your hand if you have recently become completely obsessed with tile. It’s everywhere right now – and I’m definitely not talking subway tile. But do you love it enough to do it in your living room? This Room of the Week, belonging to David Stark and recently featured in NY Mag shows us how it’s done… The […]

    Beautiful tile, but I would definitely not want it throughout the house. Tile is way too hard and cold for me (even with radiant heat). For me, there is not substitute for wood floors. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Gorgeous for sure but I could not take that much pattern…..one of the reason that I can’t handle wallpaper (besides it being a miserable experience to remove) I like pattern on things easier to change (read as fear of commitment if you wish!)

    I have two favorite things here – the pattern on the floor which is trippy and totally awesome, and that coffee table, which I’m sure cost an arm and a leg but was totally worth it.
