Bohemian and Feminine Eclecticism | Stefanie Cove West Hollywood Apartment

I found out about this super gorgeous one-bedroom condo of Stefanie Cove via Domaine. It is so pretty with the right mix of bohemian accents and polished details that I’m thinking how to convince the husband to adopt this look for our next home haha. To read the full story featured in Domaine, click here. Bohemian designs are about colours, textures and abundance. Taking inspirations from Stefanie’s apartment, these are some elements that we can consider when creating a bohemian and feminine home.

  1. Colours

You can go all white for the calmer and more exquisite boho feel (like Bella Koh’s apartment in Singapore), or go with a vibrant colour palette like Stefanie’s home, which gives a rich and abundance feel to the space. While there are no fixed rules in picking the right colours, pink, purple and peacock blue hues are some great choices for a boho space.

  1. Beautiful textiles

Think Moroccan rugs and blankets; pillows of different patterns such as ikat or tribal prints. Have lots of them, and layer them.

  1. Metallic accents

Brass, silver or gold fixtures and lightings add a touch of glamour for a more polished look.

  1. Abstract arts and wallpaper

For a more modern take of boho look, consider adding in some abstract arts and wallpaper for more diversity.

  1. Mismatched furniture, vintage and antique pieces

Matchy-matchy furniture is a big NO here. You got to put in more time and effort to look for mismatched furniture that looks good together :) Flea market finds, vintage and antique pieces will complete the look. You will definitely not short of conversational pieces in such a home <3 Bohemian 01 Bohemian 02 Bohemian 05 Bohemian 06 Bohemian 07 Bohemian 09 Continue reading

I check-out Emily Henderson’s blog like every single morning, when I was eating breakfast, when I was walking to train station on my way to work.. I’m really a fan of her fun, quirky, and approachable style ever since I’ve watched her design TV series with HGTV – Secrets from a stylist.

Emily’s reccent project is to renovate her new Los Angeles home she shares with her husband and baby. So far we have seen some sneak peak here and there, and the full story of her home is now out with Domino magazine!

Go Haus Go | Emily’s Fun Home in Kentucky

Who doesn’t love to look at Before and After story of a house’s transformation? I love it especially when the results are the hard work of creativity and DIY from the homeowners. Today I’ve just discovered another great design blog Go Haus Go. Emily, the blogger is an avid DIY fan and has totally transformed her 900 sqft, 100 years-old house in Kentucky into a bright, fun and pretty space. There’s definitely an element of quirkiness in her home too, think – bathroom with ostrich wallpaper! Here’s a sneak peak of the home of Emily and her husband. For more amazing before and after images of the space, and all the DIY projects she shared during the renovation process, please visit Emily’s blog Go Haus Go. Enjoy!
