The house we live in has “character” or is…how to say, a little….ramshackle in places, and while I do love clean uncluttered space, minimalist decorating here at Chez Boots only accentuates the plentiful cracks, tilts and gaps. So I’ve been slowly decorating with a theme I have come to call, “Organized Bohemian.” “Bohemian” in the sense of artsy and colorful (distracting ones eyes from the cracks, tilts and gaps) and “organized” in the sense of sending a clear message that this is not in fact a hippie commune.
The bedroom has been my latest focus, where I ditched an enormously wide falling-apart bed frame, and bohemed it up with a drapy canopy and a luscious amount of colorful throw pillows. Voila. We’ve got a romantic and comforting artsy little nest. When my Venn Diagram dictates an afternoon in bed, I feel quite luxurious laying there. And so does Midge.
Duvet cover by Target. Sponge-painted walls by us, paint from Lowes. Art by Christopher. Throw pillows from Marshall’s. Canopy from Amazon. Scarf atop canopy a brilliant find at our local Rite Aid. Cracks in the walls and tilted floor by Father Time & Mother Nature.
How could you make your Venn Diagram dictated resting spot more enjoyable for yourself?
