Bohemian Décor: Steals & Splurges

As an introvert, I am a creature of comfort whose safe haven is their home. And, as a woman who veers on the side of artsy, I am a lover of captivating aesthetics. This combination fuels my passion for interior design.

Now, add in the fact that I am a bit of a hippie —raised by a reformed free spirit who graduated the class of 1970— my tastes gravitate towards the channeling of years past. The eclectic mediums, vibrant colors, and disheveled charm of bohemian decor excite me. Continue reading
