The style of this modern bohemian home is mismatched, eclectic, totally unpretentious… and totally livable.
The white floors and walls form a neutral backdrop for the colourful clashing of craft meets rustic industrial, meets vintage and Moroccan, and an upated version of – dare I say it – shabby chic.
It’s shabby chic, but not as we know it. The patina of layers of paint and wallpaper, painted furniture, vintage linens and floral motifs work well with all the other styles in this light filled house. When used together with all the other artfully combined elements, the dated shabby chic look is transformed to be contemporary and fresh.
Collections of paintings, frames and vases, that look all like flea market finds, are grouped together in lovely vignettes. Clashing pieces of furniture sit side by side and look interesting and fun.
The home office (below) illustrates the delicate balance of styles. The ultra modern pendant is in stark contrast to the rustic industrial wall light. Two mismatched chairs are pulled up to the simple timber table, which sits on a Scandi style hide floor rug. The clean modern lines of the room are offset by the peeling duck egg blue paint on the bifold doors.
Stunning modern industrial metal cladding on the dining room wall is echoed in the bathroom.
I think what I love about this interior is that it looks so effortless and yet so perfectly pulled together. It’s eclectic and individual, which is much harder to successfully pull off than more formulaic styles like modern Scandi or mid century.
