| Understated Boho-chic Bedroom Decor

E ven though the term 'boho-chic' is not something that you may see too often in my blog, today I actually felt completely in love with the style after seen Plum & Bow designs in the Urban Outfitters shop.

Inspired by the soft colours of this bedroom, its layers of textures, and it's effortless and still beautiful style, I have created a mood board with my best boho finds. The result is a relaxed and understated decor, with a feminine touch, that blends vintage and exotic styles.

Aunque el termino 'boho-chic' no suele aparecer a menudo en mi blog, la colección de Plum & Bow de Urban Outfitters, de un marcado estilo bohemio, ha conseguido conquistarme.

Inspirada por las suaves tonalidades de este dormitorio, la combinación de texturas y su estilo desenfadado, he creado un panel de inspiración con mis mejores hallazgos de estilo bohemio. El resultado es un dormitorio relajado y sencillo, con un toque muy femenino, donde convergen estilos vintage con otros mas exóticos.

Good-bye wardrobes, hello garment racks - cloth racks are becoming a popular option in rentals and young apartments that don't want to waste money or space in putting together a wardrobe for the bedroom.

| Decorating with botanical wallpaper

T he large variety of wallpaper designs in the current market makes very difficult to decide which wallpaper will be right for our home and personal style and which one won't. When it comes to botanical patterns many people tend to think that these design will look old and outdated on their walls.

Floral wallpaper is beautiful, charming and timeless. They are widely used by designers to add a wow factor in vintage kitchens and dinning rooms or the feminine elegant touch in bedrooms or a walking wardrobe. They can bright up girls rooms or create a welcome feel in any hallway.

If you have decided to try a beautiful botanical wallpaper in any room of your house here are a few tips to decorate the rest of the room.
  • White furniture and textiles will look great with your colourful wallpaper and won't make the room look too busy.
  • If you want to add some colour in furniture, textiles and details choose colour blocks. Try not to mix too many patterns.
  • You can still place simple artwork or black and white photographs on your walls. Alternatively you can decorate your walls with mirrors.

| A whimsical home in Los Angeles

L ast week, the popular blog Decor8 introduced the talented American photographer Brittany Ambridge. After seeing everyday a growing tendency to mute-coloured photography, with low saturation or minimalistic colour palettes, I can't help feeling immediately captivated by the bright colours of Brittany's work.

After spending sometime immersed on her beautiful portfolio (and the 23 rooms introduced by Decor8) I have selected one of her recent works for Domino Magazine: a colourful renovated home in Los Angeles.

Inside, the house features gorgeous Moroccan floor tiles in the kitchen and whimsical mix of bright colors. Outside, a sunshine yellow Dutch door framed by hot-pink bougainvillea and a soft blue facade evoke the spirit of an exotic resort.
