Trending: Boho Chic

Boho Overview

A current trend in interior design is Bohemian!  The Boho Chic style is denoted by collected items from world travels, selected finds at yard sales/ flea markets, and your own creative inspiration; largely centered on global aesthetics and imported products.  Patterns, colors, and styles are intermingled to create lounge style spaces.  Furniture is low to the ground with multiple floor pillows in seating areas and walls are covered with hanging tapestries and beaded curtains.  This is the genesis of the great room where function meets style.

Boho LR

For my build, I used several items from the new cycle of The Perfect Ten event (available until 3/15/15, event items are discounted) including Heart & Homes Boho Green Spring Set (rug & chair) and Willowinds Conway Couch, as well as Little Llama Grandma’s Desk prints from The Challenge March round (theme Globetrotter).  I also used Sway’s Phoda Wicker Chair, exclusively at Ubertheme bohemian.   Most of the other items in the space were ‘finds’ in my inventory from past shopping adventures, my sponsor blogger packs, borrowed from friends (Thanks Morgan!), and current Arcade items.  Let your imagination flow and embrace the spirit of the Boho movement.  Happy decorating!

Monday with Grandpa

Framed Decor Junction- Autumn Patio Set

I never knew either one of my grandfathers, they both passed before I was born.  However, we had a close family friend whose grandfather became like a surrogate older male figure in my life.  We use to go on road trips throughout California, visiting family, friends, amusement parks, and all the crazy roadside attractions that were off the beaten path, like the giant dinosaur statues near Palm Springs.  It was on this trip, Grandpa Roy shared his love for fishing with me.  We trekked up to a dingy little cabin nestled in the woods near a lake.  Not being an outdoorsy kid, the cabin lifestyle was foreign to me, but at the same time exciting.  A small one room wood cabin with pot belly stove that doubled as the fireplace, bunk beds lined one wall and worn beaten up leather armchairs snuggled up next to Grandpa’s prized possession wall filled with pictures of his catch of the day.  There was something very welcoming in this rustic setting.  I have to admit, I never really got the hang of fishing, but the memory was special and I wanted to try to capture it using Decor Junctions autumn patio set. It’s a perfect collection for those chilly fall evenings cuddled up next to the fire, slipping apple cider and eating pumpkin pie!  Taxi please…

Finesmith Bye Bye Summer Hunt!

logoAs summer comes to a close, selected designer at the Finesmith Boutique are offering hunt items for 50L each.  I think this hunt will end Labor Day, Monday, September 2, 2013.  The hunt item is a pink hibiscus flower hidden either in the vendor ad or on the ground near each designers space.  I wanted to save some linden for the September round of The Arcade, so I was very selected with my purchases.  I selected the hunt items from Finesmith and Liv Glam. Finesmith offered the complete Noya jewelry set in Breeze (blue sapphire and turquoise gems), while Liv Glam & the K Collection both provided cocktail dresses as hunt items.  I’m mad over Liv Glams Blue Ivy Sequin dress with its gold and silver metallic square beading and drape shoulder detail, perfect for any occasion.  I already have plans to wear the K Collection Ellen Peplum dress in black with a fun whimsical navy blue and pink printed skirt to a SL Labor Day BBQ on Monday.  While at the Finesmith Summer Boutique, I picked up Akeruka Meg V2 skin and the Yokana bohemian outfit for free.  Hurry over to the Summer Boutique and grab some of these specials before they’re gone!
