I don’t know why I have such a hate-on for the term boho chic. Perhaps because it all seems a bit contrived, both the fashion style and the decor style. The boho chic decor style has a stiff look. It looks styled and that is exactly what bohemianism is not. There is also a tendency for there to be far too much pink for my taste.
Having said that, I sometimes find images labeled boho chic where I can find something appealing, be it one or two items, or the colours. I just wouldn’t copy the whole look.
Someone with a true bohemian spirit decorates with abandon, or is artistically minimalist, living only with basic supplies and what is needed for her art, whereas bohemian chic is all about adding a few kilims or the bright colours to your mixed modern and vintage decor.
These are all pretty rooms. It just irritates me that term boho chic. It tries too hard.
I don’t like to be trendy. I can resist the allure of sunburst mirrors and I didn’t feel the urge to paint everything turquoise, but sometimes a trend just happens to be something I truly love.
I love the ampersand. I even love its name. I love cursive writing and calligraphy so I guess it just follows that something as beautifully curved and swirled as an ampersand, one symbol that represents a full word in the way that Asian characters do, would appeal to me. It should be noted that I also like the OM symbol and the Yin/Yang.
The most popular ampersand style is this one, seen above and below in this wall art available at Target.
There is ampersand string art…….
Elegant wooden ampersands. (Every time I type that word I say it softly to myself….ampersand)
But I have to wait. I have to wait until the ampersand is long past outdated. I love the ampersand. But I wouldn’t be caught dead with one in my home decor. Maybe those earrings though……..
Basket chairs are my latest lust. I used to want a hammock but now I want a hanging basket chair. I love baskets, so why not add a chair to my collection?
Indoors our out, freestanding or suspended from a tree. They all look appealing to me!
I’m hungry for more images and will add them to this blog when I find them. Not to mention pinterest.
I bought a couple of 100% wool sweaters at the thrift shop recently. Men’s because I love the colours and patterns that are so often used in men’s sweaters. My intention was to felt the wool, which is best done with a machine knit sweater. A trip through the washing machine and dryer gave me felted wool with no effort beyond pushing buttons. Then I cut the sleeves off and trimmed the body into two matching squares and sewed them together to make a pillow cover.
Easy Peasy. One down, one more to go.
I am now mulling over various ideas for using up the sleeves.
