It’s no secret that I love studio apartments. I love the cozy feeling and it’s nice to see what people can create in a small space. This studio apartment is a wonderful combination of Scandinavian design with bohemian touches. Not extreme ‘in your face’ colorful bohemian, but very subtle with plants, fabrics and earth colours. When a studio apartment is decorated like this then living small doesn’t look so bad does it?
There is not one dull corner in the Copenhagen home of Maria Toft. Maria is the owner of clothing laber ETC. ETC. & furniture shop Boho Habits and her home reflects her personal boho style. Her spacious Copenhagen apartment is filled with vintage items in all kind of styles that she finds on flea markets and during her travels. Maria loves to mix and match with patterns, fabrics and colours. There are no rules in her home as long as it isn’t orderly. Well it certainly isn’t orderly, it’s a beautiful warm and cozy boho home.
I don’t only stalk real estate sites in Sweden but I also snoop around on Dutch real estate sites. There aren’t as many gorgeous styled homes here as in Sweden (the whole styling before selling hasn’t really arrived here I think) but every now and then you find a stunner. This apartment in Amsterdam is one of the homes that immediately cought my eye. The historic home has a beautiful wooden floor which fits well with the dark walls and the bohemian style. I love what they did with the bedroom area. Instead of a seperate bedroom they built a structure with a loft bed and clothing storage underneath. This is a much more open feeling then when you’d have a (cramped) seperate bedroom. Plus I think it suits really well with the boho style. I could easily move in here, what about you?
You probably know Justina Blakeney from her blog The Jungalow or her book The New Bohemians. On her blog she shares wonderful ‘Jungalow style’ which consists of many plants, colors and patterns. Justina also designs wonderful bohemian furniture, rugs, pillows and other decor items. If you want to go a bohemian route with your home then her decor items are the ones you should shop and you can get wonderful bohemian inspiration from all the lovely pictures.
I’m in love with the home of former model, stylist and blogger Malin Persson. Malin left the hectic life in Italy to set up home in southern Sweden together with her husband and 3 children. Her home has this lovely bohemian style with plenty of space for the kids to play in. From vintage pieces to new decor, everyhting seems to compliment each other perfectly. You can definitely see that it is a house that’s being lived in and therefor it feels very personal and cozy. I’m absolutely in love with this home and I just want to soak into that wonderful copper bathtub. Isn’t it perfect?
This home in Australia belongs to designer Margaret Scholley. She founded Alida & Miller Interior Design and together with her daughter they take on design projects in the Byron Bay area. The home’s layout is inspired by her own family, so a large open plan living space, a library and a swing(!) for her grandsons. I love all the textiles, patterns and color that she used in this home. It feels like a truly comfortable family home. A home to be lived in. (Ps: see the mximalist home of her daughter here)
I have been following Emily Katz on instagram for a while now and the pictures she posts of her home are always so inspiring that it deserves a full tour. Emily is one of those women who can do anything. Right now she is traveling the world teaching macrame workshops, learning about energy healing, art directing and styling photo shoots, hosting dinners and events, collaborating on interior design projects and products, and dreaming up the next adventure. Her home, that she shares with her partner Adam, is an amazing bohemian and eclectic space in Portland. It’s filled with interesting objects, cozy textures and a lot of plants! If you love boho eclectic homes than the home of Emily Katz is right up your alley.
This former warehouse in Delft is completely transformed to a white and green oasis. Three years ago this warehouse was just two dilapidated floors where doves were flying in and out. Pauline en Björnd complettely stripped the space and transformed this old building into a beautiful fresh living space. The home consists of two big rooms, each on a floor, that are completely painted white. The old beams and the occasional exposed brick wall show the history of this building and give the spaces some character. With the use of palets they created sitting spaces all over the house. To complete the home they decorated it with many, many plants which makes this home really come alive.
Bohemian rooms are everywhere at the moment. You might think that a bohemian room is always filled with color with very busy decor, which isn’t the case. Bohemian rooms come in various styles, from the colorful eccentric ones to a more neutral style. What the various bohemian rooms do have in common is that they’re filled with textiles, they have a very cozy vibe and most importantly there are no rules! Bohemian rooms are all about creating a space that you’re comfortable in, with items that have meaning for you that you love to show off. Now you might have just moved to a new dorm room (exciting!) and looking for a way to make your space your own. Or maybe you’re sick of you old decor and want to create a bohemian vibe in your room. Whatever the reason get inspired by these wonderful bohemian rooms and see how you can get the bohemian look!
Bohemian homes can be styled in many different ways. There is modern bohemian, colorful bohemian but also Scandinavian bohemian. Scandinavian homes usually have a light base with natural materials.
