Inspired Space :: A More Polished Boheme

June 9th, 2016

I love a bohemian style space, but sometimes it feels a little too rustic for me. I have a preppy side to me as well. This home tour on one of my favorite blogs  Cocoa + Kelly shows a perfect balance of polished boheme. I’m feeling so inspired by the mix of French chinoiserie meets Morrocan textiles. It certainly hasn’t helped my obsession with blue either. Here is a peek at some lovely rooms from the home. Visit Cocoa + Kelly to see the full tour you won’t want to miss.

Do you need help mixing your favorite styles into your home? Maybe your more bohemian and your husband is modern. I can help you find the balance with a custom Decorator in a Box to meet your style and budget. Let’s start to decorate!
