i’ve been seeing a lot more color out there in design land and, i think it’s rubbing off on me a bit. is it possible to have a redecorating disorder? i sometimes want to go from wanting a very clean, muted, vintage-modern home to something more colorful and a little bit exotic. the homes i’ve shared here go from being very bohemian modern, to influence from perhaps 1920’s-built spanish bungalow style and it’s those i’m feeling today. envision colorful tapestries and boucherouite rugs, colorful bedding, bold tiles, and a very bohemian vibe and that’s what’s rambling through my imagination today. it’s really quite an easy fix to live more colorfully when you change up all those textural elements around your home, and then go that extra mile adding colorful tile floors. here’s what i mean.

  1. When I buy colorful things for the house, my thinking is: “I buy the colors that I love and the fact that I love them will make them work together.” That keeps me from obsessing over these choices. And if you have more than one room in your house you can put the things that don’t match in separate rooms.
    I think it is important to have fun in your house, not perfection.

  2. I absolutely LOVED this post. To me it was a breath of fresh air – very real and very charming. Being surrounded by things we love – that we have collected over the years – is not only comforting but also tells our story. Seeing these beautifully curated spaces filled with meaningful remnants of a life well-lived – is very inspirational.

  3. Yes!Yes! I am a self confessed neurotic decorator! I love so many styles. Every room in my house has a slightly different vibe….I am an ex-pat from Maine living in New Zealand . I love Shaker style antiques as much as I love silk and velvet. I live in a house that isn’t sure if it’s a humble cottage, a Victorian Mansion ,a Post Modern wonder or a Boho treehouse. And I always find inspiration from you! Yay for Victoria!
