So, with a new home in a whole new part of the country, what better time to mix things up try a new style in our décor? I’ve been seeking a little california-style interior inspiration and I love these interiors because I feel like they represent the perfect youthful, California vibe I’m going for.
California style is all about a relaxed laid back look, with Spanish and coastal influences. Of course there are so many ways this can go – high end, traditional, boho, eclectic you name it. For me, I’ve always preferred a more “collected” home look anyways so the loose, layered, boho, California look really appeals to me. Here are a few tips to get the look:
Layer :: for a comfortable, laid back look
Use patterns :: kilm rugs, bold stripes, African mudcloth…
Mix organic textures :: like rattan, fur, seagrass, leather, wood
Add a touch of mid-century :: think sputnik chandelier and hairpin legs
Mix old with new :: vintage pieces and collections mixed with crisp whites and bright colors
Plants, plants, and more plants :: mix sculptural plants like mother-in-laws-tongue and cactus with softer, loose greenery like ferns and philodendrons
Don't these just make you want to move to California!? Wish me luck!
