Whenever in life we feel the need for change, there is one or several reasons triggering it. When I felt like it’s time to make a little boho makeover at home, I think I was ushered by an inner drive caused by the warm summer weather, my recent trip to Serbia, the general desire to explore the world, colour inspiration from the streets. All these or maybe something else, I don’t know exactly, I just know I gave in and rolled up my sleeves. Here we go.
First I was going through a stack of extra accessories I had at home. I found my vintage Boucherouite rug from Morocco (sourced at my Marrakech based friend Maryam’s Red Thread Souk), a Mexican blanket, a Moroccan cushion, a very colorful bedspread, a vintage lithography of oriental folk costumes bought in Paris and my ever present collection of vintage ceramics, colorful vases and plants. That seemed like a good pile of home accessories with a boho touch.
Another important fact was my gallery wall in the living room. It’s been up for like a year and I wanted to change it entirely. I needed a new center piece and I found a wonderful Mark Rothko art print on a wooden panel through allposters.de – I was immediately drawn to the blue and yellow interpretation. Around it I’ve decided to add some vintage and newer paintings.
While unrolling the Boucherouite rug I started to play with it and tested it in my living room and in my bedroom. Personally, I prefer it in the bedroom cause it is more neutral and the vibrant colours and patterns of the Boucherouite come to full impact there. What do you think? After lots of shuffling around and a few coffees, I approached the end of my boho makeover.
As a person I see myself as a traveler, as an explorer. Traveling is the essence and makes me happy. But it is not only the travels abroad that keep me going. It is also the daily impulse to see the world around me with other eyes. I like to think of that as my boho soul. And thinking about it this way, I’m convinced that everyone could use a bit of boho in the life. Don’t you agree?
Have a happy weekend, friends!
