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?
