It's Valentine's Day friends and because I love you all, my dear readers, I've organized a little Valentine's gift for one chose among you: the brand new interiors book 'Bohemian Modern' by interior designer Emily Henson. I adore boho interiors and this book was just perfect to satisfy my inspiration seeking eye and spark some boho modern ideas for my own home.
In her book 'Bohemian Modern', Emily Henson explores the elements that come together to create an eclectic and contemporary look - the showcased interiors brim with colours, patterns, textures. In the first part, Emily takes us through the details of a bohemian modern style - she explores the use of patterns and colours, textiles, contrast, plants (no need to mention that I love it), collections, styling.
The book's second part features great boho homes - and boho is not simply boho. Those homes are retro bohemian, urban bohemian, rustic, handmade, bright barns, bohemian grandeur or technicolor homes - the range is big and proofs that boho is not only for hippie hipsters.
I love to believe that my own home is a little bit urban bohemian. It has a toned down colour range but holds lots of plants, vintage ceramics, decor items from my travels - in a nutshell: lots of personality. And after I've finished the book I felt like everyone should be a little bit boho.
Join the giveaway!
If you want to be inspired and add a bit more of boho style to your home, win one copy of the book by leaving a comment under this blogpost until Saturday, February 21st. The giveaway is open worldwide and a winner will be drawn randomly. Good luck & happy Valentine's Day!
