Bohemian Zen Living Room

It’s been nine months since we moved into our new home and our living room is finally starting to take shape. For months this room has jokingly been called our “lobby” because it consisted of plants, a rug and Perry’s desk (he says he is the house receptionist). Our short term plan is to live in this home for a few more years, purchase another home and rent this one out so we can have two rental properties (we rented our first home out last August).

{Photo}Synthesis Vol 3: A Take On Being Eclectic With A Boho Artistic Flair

As far as my design style, it's definitely eclectic with a boho artistic flair.  I would say that I'm not a minimalist and not a maximalist either.  I'm more of a "rotationalist" (I just made that up).  I have a lot of collected things, but I don't like to have them all on display at once.  As far as plants go, just a short time ago I had only one or two plants in our house.  All that changed last year after a visit to the Palmenhaus restaurant in Vienna, Austria, a former prominent greenhouse for botanical exhibits.  (It's okay to Google it now.

{Photo}Synthesis Vol. 2. : What Bohemian Plant Dreams Are Made Of

Hi! My name is Kara, which I am sure you have gathered by now.  Not really the kind of girl you can sum up in a “Hey, nice to meet ya,” conversation. Just like my home, I am layered.  I live slightly outside Boston in a 1700s Victorian mansion. I live in one of the eight apartments that it is now made up of. The character is amazing and one of the main reasons I still reside here.  My apartment is only 800 sq. Ft, so I am definition Small Space Squad. My style is a mixture of mid mod/bohemian. It’s super eclectic and layered throughout.  I am packing it in because “less is more” doesn’t ring true to me. I have a “more is more” attitude with an addiction to thrifting. I believe green heals and have an enormous collection of plants throughout the apartment. They are my babies. I love the color they bring to a space. I love the unique shapes and textures and the way they stand tall when the light beams in. My apartment is a jungle.  Sometimes, I think I've overdone it. Then I remember that basic is boring and that my mid-mod/eclectic/plant loving space is wild and quirky and 100% me.
