2 UNIQUE WAYS TO DO BOHEMIAN CHIC IN YOUR LIVING ROOM

header-crate-and-barrel-wedding-gift-registry

With the cold weather upon us, it’s time to turn our attention to everything indoors. As soon as winter hits I love to redecorate the house and make those little household improvements that I’ve been putting off all year. So far, we have already redecorated our hallway, downstairs bathroom and I have turned our spare room into a much larger and fancier office.

As we live in rented accommodation we can’t do much in the way of renovations or bold paint choices, so we usually stick with white walls and then invest in statement pieces to add our own personalities to the space. When I started, I never really had a theme in mind, I was just buying things that I liked – patterns, textures, pops of colour and basically anything with a boho vibe.

Next on my list is our living room, which is probably one of the most neglected of rooms in our house, crazy really, as it’s the one room where we spend most of our time. Unfortunately, with main rooms such as this, come big ticket items, sofas, tables, chairs, shelving, storage, the list is endless. As someone who is soon to be getting married, I love the idea of being able to use a wedding gift registry to source some, if not all of these items. So I thought it would be fun to create a registry with Crate and Barrel and share some of my favourite living room essentials to transform any space into a boho dream. Crate and Barrel has an exclusive collection of housewares and furniture, great if you like unique designs as much as I do.

Me being me, I found so many items on the registry that I loved, so I decided to create two themes one for the minimalist bohemian and one for the more tropical. Coincidentally my home is a mixture of these two so far and I’m not sure which one to apply to our living room, so I could do with a little help from you guys to help me decide?

HOW TO USE MID CENTURY MODERN PIECES TO CREATE A MAD MEN INSPIRED WEDDING

HOW TO USE MID CENTURY MODERN PIECES TO CREATE A MAD MEN INSPIRED WEDDING (23)

Normally I wouldn’t be into anything too vintage but there is something about the Mid Century Modern design that really floats my boat! It’s sexy, simple yet makes a statement, which is exactly how I would describe today’s wedding inspiration. The bold colors and geometric prints  are typical of mid-century style and the retro furnishings and color-blocked florals are the main focal point of the tablescape. The super cool lounge area ties in the same design elements and would certainly get your guests talking. One of my favourite details has got to be that Vespa! Now that would make a fun getaway vehicle don’t you think?

RETRO COLOUR POP INSPIRATION WITH THE COOLEST WALL MURAL!

RETRO COLOUR POP INSPIRATION WITH THE COOLEST WALL MURAL! (14)

This retro-vintage styled bridal shoot took place at the Lionsgate Event Center just outside of the Denver area in Colorado and it could not have been more perfect. From its pop art murals to the perma-parked old yellow truck, it had it all! Lush grounds with blossoms on the trees were perfect for the “spring-y” feel Ashley and the rest of the team had wanted the shoot to emit!
