Boho, eclectic chic?

I have some good friends who just bought their first house, and she's trying to figure out what to do with it. So, I was looking through House Beautiful and Elle Decor (the old stand-bys) to try to give her some ideas. (I like to pretend like I know how to advise in these matters.) She doesn't know exactly what her style is, but based on her fabulous fashion sense, I'd say some form of eclectic, bohemian, artsy style. Do you have any suggestions for other good websites to check for this style? These were some of my ideas...

She said one of the rooms in the house is already eggplant, and she was trying to decide if that was a workable color...maybe some of you color experts would have an opinion on that. I think it works nicely in this room.


  1. I love the eggplant! Hey, what do you mean with your question about lavender? I don't know how to answer what you're asking.

  2. Hello Dear...this has nothing to do with your post, but I thought you might get a kick out of I thoroughly enjoy her pictures and she does these fascinating slideshows of peoples homes. They're all from Denmark and Sweden, which gives you an idea of the style...but talk about some great and creative ideas. Maybe you'll like it, maybe not...but I thought I'd throw it out there. - Addie

  3. No I have never climbed there. But I used to live in Pinhurst NC. when I was a kid.

  4. I'm sure you have considered this but I'll say it anyway. Check Anthropologie's Home section. The way they stage their rooms totally fits the bill. I wonder, too, about Urban Outfitters Apartment section. They may have some cool photos and ideas, too.
