Why This Room Caught My Eye

February 26, 2013 0


Yesterday, while I was on Twitter I got into a little conversation with one of my blogger friends, an Australian who lives in Paris and designs jewelry. Olivia told me about the book ‘Gypset Travel’ by Julia Chaplin (which is now on my wish list) and this got me daydreaming of bohemian style interiors, lush and rich with textures, patterns and colours. This thought led to the next one, being a soft, velvety emerald sofa as a key feature in a bohemian chic interior design. A few clicks later I stumbled over this inspiring room that caught my eye and illustrates my bohemian interior idea. These reasons caught my eye in particular:

  • Soft, emerald sofa: Pantone’s colour of the year 2013 is noble, decadent, bobo (bourgeois-bohème) and I love it on a big, soft sofa in particular. To be honest, I am thinking of a new acquisition for myself.
  • Hairpin legged coffee table: Almost juxtaposed to the bohemian chic of the rich sofa is the somewhat retro meets industrial hairpin legged coffee table with wooden top. I love its contradiction – made of heavy wood and cast iron, it still has an airy lightness in itself.
  • Vintage kilim rug: The decadent chicness of the velvety emerald sofa is once again juxtaposed by the worldly, time travelled vintage kilim rug with its vibrant colours. It entails the magic of past times and far away cultures and perfectly completes the bohemian chic styling of this room.
What caught your eye today? Let me know!

Happy Tuesday!

    I understand why this caught your room Igor. The place is nice and cozy, with a great (current) colour palette. I am also a fan of the little wall gallery. Have a lovely day,

    My eye is on that wonderful gallery wall – especially the women in cloche hats – I wonder if it is embroidered?

      It wasn’t indicated unfortunately. But the Murphy sofa in emerald is a good alternative.

    I want to throw myself on that sofa! I really like the colour scheme of the room and the white walls that support it.

    Nice find!
