Boho homes

Bohemian-style is for those who enjoy creatively thinking outside the box. This design style is all about an eclectic mix of colors, patterns, textures and fabrics. Create it with odds and ends picked up on travels around the world, vintage pieces, heirlooms, old books, pieces of art, especially old art, decorative figurines, lots of soft furnishings such as pillows and generally load up with accessories. More is more. Blend different textures, such as wood, metall, glas, natural fibers, wool and animal skins, as a way to master this look. The key to doing it successfully is that nothing can match, nothing is new and don’t stick to any rules. True bohemian style is achieved only when the room appears as if it has grown organically over the years. If you don’t want to follow any design trends, perhaps this style is for your? Playful, inspiring or challenging? Which one of these seven homes is your favorite?     Photo sources: 1. http://theselby.com/galleries/aldo-chaparro-artist-at-home-in-mexico-city/, 2. http://thedesignfiles.net/2014/08/sydney-home-dion-antony-anna-feller-and-family/, 3. http://www.anahataart.com,  4. http://www.dewittenijl.be/antwerpen/, 5. http://www.anthropologie.eu/anthro/index.jsp, 6. http://thedesignfiles.net/2013/09/fremantle-home-trish-bygott-nathan-crotty-and-family/, 7.  Pinterest.

Multifunctional living space

Love the multifunction of a big table. When not used as a dining table, it can double up as a workspace as well. A great way to furnish when living space is limited. Instead of having furniture for various purposes divided in different areas of your home, do the opposite and have all the features in one place. Make sure that you have sufficient lighting. And add really comfy chairs. Then it also works as a nice spot to gather when friends visit and you can banish the sofa too.             Credits: http://www.homeadore.com/2014/02/13/eixample-residence-loox/
