Boho Glam.

Colleen Locke's home tour in the latest issue of Domino Mag stopped me in my tracks. Have you seen it? You can read all about it here.

As I was flipping through the pages of her home tour, I was struck by the crazy cool, eclectic, Bohemian feel that was perfectly paired with its glamorous counterpart. These two styles are often at odds, but Locke's home combines the two with perfect harmony. 

In this house, the "glam" side includes gilt furniture, brass accents, marble-decked kitchen, and a little bit of Hollywood Regency as well. The Bohemian side borrows pieces from mid-century and French country. 

I also love the combination of modern art with antique wood pieces, such as this table. And that sofa! The epitome of glam.

The key to achieving this looks is to purchase your large pieces in a neutral palette, and then add saturated colors in your accents (rugs, pillows, art, etc.) Make sure to include some texture, such as burled wood, jute, linen, faux fur, and natural pieces like driftwood and greenery.

I put together a little mood board so you can recreate this look in your own home, if you like!

Don't be afraid to combine items from different genres, decades, and aesthetics, especially if you like the "collected" look! I always hate when someone fully commits to a style, and will not venture outside of it. You don't want your house looking like a mid-century museum, or have your guests feel like they just stepped back into 1958! By incorporating lots of different things from lots of different "styles", you create a "Oh, these are all of my things that I collected during my travels, daaaahling" feel. 

I particularly love this glamorous Bohemian style because it focuses of pretty things but makes them very livable. What's your favorite "style" combination?

our weekend.

Sorry this post is so late, I seem to be having a case of the Mondays today! I'm still recovering from a busy, fun-filled weekend, where the inadvertent theme had to be food and wine. We didn't plan it that way, and those are usually the best kinds of weekends, but on Monday...whew. 

On Friday night, we headed over to our friends Brad and Andrew's house for homemade dumplings.

They were delicious and something that I'm definitely going to recreate at home!

We then moved to the roof to drink copious amounts of wine and watch shenanigans on the street. It turned out to be quite an eventful night in Petworth!

Saturday morning, I was able to squeeze in some snuggles with this guy before going with my best friend to register for her baby showers. It was an all day event that I managed to take zero pictures of! But Max makes up for it.

When I got home, it was late and we were hungry. We walked around and around before deciding on a random Mediterranean restaurant on the street.

It was cheap and delicious. Sometimes those hole-in-the-wall places are the absolute best. 

After dinner, we got an iced coffee and strolled the long way home. We woke up late on Sunday, and found an adorable diner for breakfast in Old Town Alexandra 
(did I tell you the theme of this weekend was food?)

We then met up with our friends again to visit the Crate and Barrel outlet (which I loved). I came home with all of these goodies!

Shopping is exhausting, so the four of us (naturally) went out for street tacos and beer. 

It was a beautiful day and these two make me laugh!

Nick and I then headed home to relax and watch Game of Thrones. It was the perfect end to a fun weekend! What did you get up to?
