The White Walled Bohemian; white wall inspiration


The white walled Bohemian; white wall inspiration

One of the key ingredients to a bohemian home and to my happiness is being surrounded by vibrant colors. The white walls in my home are wearing on my soul. As I am about to say good bye to my security deposit and go crazy with the Oops paint from Home Depot I stumble upon a very inspiring white wall space, Burnay Fatima’s home.

The home of Fatima occupies its own particular universe while showcasing market finds and beloved family heirlooms.

The hallway showcases a stuffed bird of Anmoder, a Bertoia side chair and a chest from Pedras & Pessego. The wall decoration was made with cut velvet; such a great idea for a renter.    bunny library

The main wall in the living room is occupied by a book shelf and fireplace. They are original to this charming old home.

One corner of the room is used as a make shift library; the top of a dresser recovered with back-coated wallpaper. On the wall, a composition of images from Venice.


Fatima unleashes her passion for creativity by starting from scratch; white walls and ceilings. She then fills every empty corner with her colorful treasures. bunny

Luxurious textiles, art, books and colorful treasures even find themselves in the bathroom, kitchen and bedroom. 



In the kitchen remains the bohemian spirit and awareness of recycling that dominates the house. The table was made from purchased wood from a flea market in Comporta and plates from The Tile Warehouse.

Such an inspiring space! Thanks Burnay!

Bohemian Fall jewel tones in Interiors


Bohemian Fall jewel tones in Interiors

October is in full gear and fall jewel tone colors are awakening our bohemian interiors giving them a spicy color splash. When decorating with jewel tones think about rubies, emeralds, sapphires and topaz. The tones are saturated and intense and are unquestionably dramatic. Incorporating them into decorating can bring a dull drab room into an interesting exciting room. These gem colors work well when paired with wood tones, neutrals or similar jewel tones. 

Jewel tone colors can offer such excitement that you may begin to forget about minor flaws in your room, such as a worn out sofa or a tiny bedroom. These intense colors emphasize coziness of a small space. 

What Designers are saying about jewel tones

Exotic. “I love shades of deep blue with a touch of green—like a Crayola teal color—beside chartreuse, gold, and amethyst,” says Jessica Becker. “It makes me think of peacocks.”

Regal. Amethyst and amber are stately together, especially when they’re paired with gold accessories and dark wood furnishings, floors, and moldings.

Warm with a twist. “My favorite combination is bright emerald, chocolate brown, and off-white,” says New York City designer Timothy Whealon. “ Also great is a shocking peacock blue with white painted furniture.”



Neon Color Trend in Interiors

 The Neon Color Trend

Neon colors are in this year and they are not just for the fashionistas.  Whether it’s furniture or decorative objects, neon colors are trending in interiors right now. My rule of thumb with most trends is to not overdo it. If you are someone who loves the expressive colors this could be a trend to jump onto.  But beware, these neon colors can take your boho space to the modern world. 

Take a test drive with this trend to see how you like it. Painting chair legs, lamp base or a simple throw pillow is a great start. 

See how to make !! 

The washi tape on this coffee table is a creative way to bring in the neon color trend without breaking the bank or sacrificing a whole furniture piece

When working with these neon colors, I suggest not grouping more than two peices of furniture and accents together. It is visually overwhelming.

What they are saying about the Neon Color Trend in Fashion
Stephanie Solomon, fashion director of Bloomingdale’s department stores, says, “You can’t miss one of the big fashion trends this season: eye-popping neon colors. Whether it be a handbag, belt, a pair of jeans, a dress or skirt, this spring, neon is what will make anything in your wardrobe a wow.”  See more…

Pink Interiors & Pink Details in Bohemian Design

Pink Interiors and pink details in Bohemian Design.  

Pink is one of those colors that people shy away from because they don’t want a room to appear too girly. But I think there are ways of using pink that really bring warmth, subtlety and brightness to a room. These points are key characteristic of Bohemian Interior Design. So natually, we see tons of pink in our favorite boho spaces.


Bohemian spaces are warm and inviting by nature. That is why pink is my favorite accent color to pair with any bohemian chic decor.

Love your chaos

Pantone’s “color trend watch” declared the color Caberet as a 2012 trend favorite. I can’t wait to see what they cast as the 2013 trends in the Pantone’s color forecast. I would bet we some magenta and plums.

The soft pink pairs beautifully with  the chocolate browns, turquoise, grays, and woods.



This pink (Farrow & Ball Radicchio 96) goes towards magenta. It pairs so well with many colors—gold, black, brown, khaki, yellow, blue, green—the list is long for this particular shade of pink.
