DESIGN YOUR HOME
sophisticated bohemian bedroom inspiration
Rich green wall paint and a darkly coloured gallery of eclectic pieces feel very sophisticated here.
I love this distressed chair used as bookshelf. That blue is gorgeous!
This bird tree would make a fun DIY project.
Don't be afraid to repaint odd furnishings, like this harlequin-inspired dresser.
Again, mural painted on a piece of furniture. Lovely.
Book pages as wallpaper?
I want in my room: cozy book shelves, dark warm tones, gentlemanly chairs.
Quirky Heirloom Throw - $198
Layer colourful throws and pillows to add depth to seating and beds. Don't be afraid to mismatch patterns.

Lampshades to deepen light. I prefer dark, heavy shades rather than sheer and light.

Weathered wood dressers and other furniture make a room look lived in and inviting.
Winifred Colorblock Chair, Houndstooth - Anthropologie.com - $2
Mismatch patterns while keeping a central colour scheme to add a playful touch.
Vibrant Afternoon Hammock - $98
This hammock feels relaxed, playful, and bohemian. Let it inspire you.
Fringed Botanicals Pillow - Anthropologie.com - $198
Lots of colourful pillows make a normally boring bed seem interesting.
Battenberg Iris Bracket - $22
Use antique brackets to hold shelves or put a plank on top to make a built-in desk or table.
Waterfall Ruffle Curtain - $79
Ruffled curtains are so feminine and soft. It is rare that I find things I love more than a good set of ruffles.
Antique Iron Clock - $24.99
I hate digital clocks. Vintage and classic clocks work as both functional and decorative touches.
Poem Cushion by My Bearded Pigeon - $53.80
Poem printed on a throw pillow- the perfect conversation starter.
Gun, c.1981 Print by Andy Warhol at Art.com
This Andy Warhol print is edgy and mod.

"Where love is, there is no darkness"- waking up to this print every morning would be a pleasure.

Try an isolated large map or a series of smaller maps.

More maps... in unconventional places.

Be it a wooden letter itself, piece of art, or pillow, letters give a room personality.

Again, so organic. What a statement piece.
Whitburn Vase 42" - $62.39
This vase celebrates the natural integrity of the wood gorgeously.

Choose many small lamps instead of task lighting for your space. It will make the room feel more intimate and less harsh.

More nature-inspired items. The little bird is to die for!
'Tree of Life' by Gary, Aaron & Khairul - $45
Find unique and interesting prints, frame them all alike, and set yourself up a gallery wall. What appears to be a cross section of a tree is actually a miniature mosaic of animal silhouettes- intellectual and interesting to look at. (Again with the trees, I know.)
'Starlight' Print - AUD 30
This adorable print depicting the night sky would certainly pop off bold-coloured walls.
Paneled, library-like spaces make me drool.
