Brooklyn home of Nicolette Camille Owen, from the pages of design*sponge book, via garden design.

do you ever get the urge to embrace your inner hippie — live that truly bohemian lifestyle? sometimes, when i see these kinds of spaces, i imagine myself living in a small beach shack in san francisco’s outer sunset, or tucked away in L.A.’s lush laurel canyon, or even a funky williamsburg loft. just some place that feels a little bit like a throwback to time forgotten. the kind of home where you’d walk around barefoot, tending to lots of house plants, maybe a garden where you’d grow your own fruits and veggies, and you’d probably fill with lots of candlelight. a few good resources for getting this look are anthropologie, abc carpet & home, urban outfitters, and of course your local yard sales and flea markets, etsy vintage, eBay, and craigslist — second hand treasures make for the perfect bohemian hideout!

    The bohemian look appeals to me so much because of how carefree and easy it appears, but for me it’s a really delicate balance between this and “garage sale hoarder.”

    I absolutely love boho decor – when I move out of my current situation in a few months, this is definitely what my next space will look like…so many plants! And candles, of course.
