Home Tour Part 2: Bedrooms

Welcome back to my home tour!

In Part 1, I showed you how I created a bright, airy and inviting space to entertain our friends and family. Now let’s get a bit more personal as I show you what I did to our three bedrooms. I wanted to create small escapes from the hustle and bustle of city life with pops of color and a bohemian flair.

For our master bedroom it was all about the bed. Big, luxurious and comfortable were the main requirements. We needed plenty of comfy cozy textured throws to satisfy the needs of the whole family (including our mini pig and dog who nap here more than we do). I have to admit that I have rotated our bedding every few days to get a fresh color palette in here. Tip: Buy 2 sets for your master bedroom with different looks, this way every time you launder your bedding becomes an opportunity to freshen up the vibe with a different set. This look is all about warm neutrals, luxurious textures and that pop of teal and blue. The leather loveseat in the corner is one of my favorite pieces in the house and our dog Smooch agrees that it has the best city view in the house! You can find him perched her most mornings staring dreamily out the window. It’s quite the life that deaf dog has.

For our guest room, I really wanted to play with color. Because I was pretty tame with the main areas of the house, I thought there was no better place than this room to incorporate a pop of color. Can you tell I’m a fan of blue hues? I’m also becoming quite the plant lady and had so much fun at Floral Grub in San Francisco picking out my plant babies. Every one asks about this “Imagine” sign. I actually got it………..

For our final bedroom we decided to keep it classic and give my hubby a little space to work, to play and to add his own little decorative flair. At first, I was worried that this would be the room that all our mismatched furniture would go to live… and maybe die. Ultimately, I am really happy with how this room turned out! It’s warmer and cooler than I could have every expected and I love that it kept a bit of our personality with my guitar and his car obsession.

Home Tour Part 1: Welcome to our home!

Until now, this blog has focused mainly on my fashion and new mommy lifestyle but I’m happy to announce a brand new section coming to Bridge To Bohemia this week. I’ve had hopes of expanding the blog for some time now to give you an even deeper glimpse into my world and now felt like the right time to do it. So here we go, I have decided to start an interior design section here and I couldn’t be more excited as this is a hobby and interest of mine. I truly believe that your home is an extension of your own unique personal style and decorating is something that I’ve become more and more passionate about over the last few years. That said, for our first interior design post I decided to share something quite personal and close to my heart, my own home. So welcome inside the space that my hubby and I have shared these last few years. It’s been a work in progress but now that it’s complete I couldn’t help but share all our hard work!

As many couples know, moving in together is full of compromises and one of the first ones that you embark on is merging your unique styles. I have to be honest, I loved the challenge of combining my husband’s clean, rustic minimalism with my more luxe bohemian aesthetic. I swear he could buy a whole room from Restoration Hardware and call it a day, no questions asked. Thank goodness that Restoration is one of my favorites because we started with some killer pieces to anchor the rooms.

For our entryway the key was to eliminate clutter and have a place to drop the essentials. Keys, purses, sunglasses, leashes, and everyday pig-walking shoes can be discretely hidden in this cabinet. Some abstract art and mirror kept it feeling like a warm welcome as guests walk in.

When decorating a house it’s difficult to decide where to start. It can be overwhelming. I decided to start with the rooms that our guests would get to enjoy, that way we could feel comfortable hosting in a finished home before tackling the more intimate spaces. That left me with the main living and entertaining areas, the entry way and bathrooms. The bedrooms would come later when I had some time to perfect what we wanted to do with our personal space. Because our main living space is an open layout, I wanted it to feel bright, clean and modern yet still warm and inviting enough to host a casual Bachelor viewing party with boxes of take-out on the couch.

A neutral palette of various textures and materials kept the space feeling open, industrial accents kept my hubby happy and allowed me to fill the space with plants and textiles that brought a little life.

The last project to tackle was the bathrooms. These were pretty easy because most of the work was done for me by the architect who remodeled this home. The space was designed with light in mind and both of our guest bathrooms are full of bright light, large windows and all white fixtures. All I needed to do was add a little interest throughout which I chose to do with unexpected art and copper accents. I especially love these photography piece that uses the mugshots of famous musicians as an art compilation.

Home: My new kitchen look

a funny lil' story about moving in together...

So, when I moved in with Coulter I loved most of the major pieces in the house, with the exception of our dining chairs. They were olive green leather chairs, fabulous in the right home, horrible in our very modernly basic palette home. That being said, I've been dying to change them. It's taken me a while but I decided to have some fun with it. We knew we wanted to add some color to the kitchen, I just had to figure out how. That's when I stumbled across this GORGEOUS inspiration photo one day. It was a photo of a green house that had a little kitchen table with a light green velvet sofa behind it. That was it - I fell in love! So there I was, in love, and thinking to myself, "Why can't I have a sofa on the backside of my kitchen table? People use benches all the time, a couch is just a much cozier bench." So, I went for it. I got the Peacock velvet couch from Joybird, it is this gorgeous blue/green color. Now to find a great way to compliment the colorful couch and subdue it a little.... a woven grey chair. I didn't go completely tame, as you can tell, the fabulous chairs have gold legs! The woven grey also has the tiniest touch of baby blue, which I adore!!!!! All this to say, my kitchen went from being one of the biggest eyesores in my home to my favorite cozy nook! I mean, I am legitimately cooking meals now just so we can eat at home and enjoy this space ;) So, thank you Joybird!!!!

I chose the Peacock velvet couch from Joybird, as you can see it is this gorgeous blue/green color. Now I needed to find a great way to compliment the colorful couch while also subduing it a little. Enter these woven grey chairs. I didn't go completely tame, as you can tell, these grey chairs have fabulous gold legs. The woven grey also has the tiniest touch of baby blue, which I adore. All this to say, my kitchen went from being one of the biggest eyesores in my home to my favorite cozy nook. I mean, I am legitimately cooking meals now just so we can eat at home and enjoy this space. So, thank you Joybird

My advice is this: find the one place in your house that you walk by and go "hmmmmm, that could be better" and make it better. Don't wait, do it now. I dragged my feet (literally for a year and a half). But once I actually took the time to figure out what I wanted instead, it was only a matter of weeks to change it. If you're a homebody or work from home, like I do, having your home feel comfortable and cozy is a MUST. Take the time, make the little tweaks. I promise you'll appreciate it far more than you even think you will. 

Thank you again to Joybird for the amazing couch and chairs. You officially saved my kitchen. 

With love,

Home: My office redesign

I have been anxiously waiting to show you how I redid my office!

DSCF1453-2.jpg

First of all, I have to give a big thanks to Wayfair Registry for this post! Most everything you see in these photos is from Wayfair. They have everything from Jonathan Adler to a Moroccan pouf a.k.a. there's something for every price point!

I wanted this office to be practical but still cute, of course. We are going to Morocco for our honeymoon and it has me getting all the feels, which I'm sure is apparent to you from the decor. I thought that the ergonomic black chair would be nicely complemented with a black and white rug and I was glad I went that route cause I feel like it tied it all together. The desk is amazing cause you can sit or stand with it. My last touch of Morocco is in the poufs, in my opinion, they add a little homey feel to the office plus they are great seating for any guests!

I added in these rose gold pieces from West Elm to accentuate the rose gold in the grey faux fur bench. The fur bench was the first item I chose (after the desk and chair). I just thought it was so fun and cozy. Since the room is small I couldn't do a couch so this was a great compromise. 

DSCF1419.jpg

Last but not least you add in my office buddies Rachel, Smooch, and our newest office aide Lennon Leigh. She's working pretty hard for a four week old! 

Re-doing a room doesn't have to be as scary or expensive as you think it will be. You can do it, don't worry, and you'll feel very accomplished once it's done!

With love,

Chantelle
