The deadline for entering the giveaway for $75 credit to spend in ceramicist Syma’s Etsy shop has been extended through this Monday, July 18. Check out Syma’s wares (read more about her here), then post a comment on this blog saying what you liked best.
The accompanying headline called this room “eclectic Victorian,” but I call it boho home decor heaven. The only Victorian part of skin-care entrepreneur Jodie Patterson’s turn-of-the-century Brooklyn brownstone is the building itself. The insides are pure glambo—boho chic, sophisticated, posh, and full of glamour.
I seem to have a thing of late with gold upholstery. I don’t OWN any and it’s not on my wish list, but maybe it should be. Every time I see it in a photograph I’m drawn in. You’ll be drawn in, too, by the full tour of Patterson’s house AND the One Kings Lane feature I found this photo in, “5 Homes with Seriously Impressive Style.”
What I wouldn’t give to sink into those sectionals and see the light filter through that stained glass window. *Sigh*
Speaking of gold sofas…
That’s two this week! Velvet gets me every time, too, no matter the color. This one is in the library of fashion designer Derek Lam’s Manhattan home. I love how it mixes with the blonde wood paneling and the black accents–particularly that Christian Liaigre club chair. It may not be boho, but it’s clearly uptown classy, like a Savile Row bespoke suit.
Speaking of bespoke, check out the burnt oak four-poster bed in the master by Neal Beckstedt Studio. More gold velvet, more black, and Madeleine Castaing fabric wallcovering to boot—oh be still, my sleepy heart! See the full tour of this Gramercy Park gem on Architectural Digest.
Themed bedrooms worthy of a pajama party
More gold and black…What’s going on with me? Like I said, I have none of this in my home, but maybe I should. If so, this snazzy room with its fun anthropomorphic art would be a great place to start.
I attended a Pantone trends webinar this week in which they mentioned the emergence of a “cute-animals-dressed-like people” trend, so this bedroom is right on. I, on the other hand, am ahead of the game: I decorated my guest bath with cute animals dressed like humans over a year ago!
I’m not usually much for the stark look, but I’ll make an exception for this room. Those flowered sheers are gorgeous. And my, how they pop when most everything else is white. Love the pale patterned wood floors, too!
Both this bedroom and the previous one appeared in “Bedroom Inspiration Roundup: Cool Unconventional Themes.” Follow the link for more views of each room, plus three more themed bedrooms.
Sweet dreams of faraway lands
Unless you already live in Morocco, of course. I love the paneled Arabesques on the sleeping nooks in this (once again) golden bower. These box beds are, of course, custom-made. McAlpine Tankersley Architecture designed the residence and McAlpine Booth & Ferrier did the interiors.
If you’re into nappy-time nooks, check out Architectural Digest’s “15 Cozy Beds Nestled in Wall Nooks,” which is where I found this photo.
Last but not least, something to occupy your hands
|Via Design Sponge|
In addition to gold sofas and velvet of all colors, I’m a sucker for key tassels—i.e., elaborate POMPOMS—and that’s VERY boho deluxe, right? So when I saw Jessica Marquez’ DIY Summer Pompom Doorknob Garland, I made like a sponge and soaked it up. Something similar to this will appear on the Lawson front door very soon. If you make one, let’s compare! That’s what comments are for, ya know.
