In The Details :: Organic Wood Accents

I don't know if many of you follow my friend & blogger, Justina Blakeney, but this inspirational gal has just released a stunning, colorful new book called The New Bohemians profiling the lives and homes of fellow boho spirits, and I'm thrilled to bring you a peek at what's inside today!


While there are many design elements throughout the book that relay the laid-back, layered bohemian style (macrame, layered suzanis, you name it), one detail I picked up on that's super easy to incorporate into any interior are the many uses for organic wood.


This awesome driftwood pendant was probably one of my overall favorite details amongst the many homes! I love the nautical feel with the silver bulbs!

One of my favorite parts of the book is that it's divided into different personality types of bohemian homes. I lean more towards the Nomadic or Romantic Bohemian, but it's fun to flip through the pages to see which style you relate to the most.


And then of course there are the ideas that are so simple, you have a 'why didn't I think of that?' moment. I love the use of a gorgeous wood slab as more of a natural way to add a layer to the coffee table vs. a structured tray. Genius, and easy. And this book is full of those moments, including a few DIY's from Justina herself.

Thanks, Justina for having me as a part of your book tour, and for the sneak peek! A huge congrats to her for producing such a beautiful piece. I highly recommend picking it up! (Available for purchase here.)
