ROOM REVEAL // MODERN BOHO LIVING ROOM
MODERN BOHO LIVING ROOM MAKEOVER
Everybody loves a good before + after! I teamed up with Sonder to redesign this San Diego apartment located in a trendy downtown neighborhood. As you can see from the Before photos, it needed a serious decor facelift. Keeping the Cali vibe in mind, I transformed this puppy into a hip apartment befitting of its surroundings.
Here is what I was working with in the living room:
MODERN BOHO LIVING ROOM DESIGN PLAN
Super sexy, am I right? As with all my E-Design clients, I started the project with a Design Plan layering the new furniture and accessories so it's easy to see how all of the elements tie in together. Next came a detailed Shopping List (down to what coffee table books to purchase) and Floorplan outlining what pieces go where. I used a fab CB2 rug as inspiration for my design, pulling a mix of burgundy, slate blue and gold throughout the living room. Since it is a relatively small space I kept the artwork minimal, using a large juju hat in favor of a few smaller pieces.
MODERN BOHO LIVING ROOM REVEAL
Here is the finished product! We kept the main wall color as-is, choosing to paint a soft accent wall instead (Benjamin Moore Wolf Gray).
The low profile CB2 daybed and cozy throw pillows are just asking for someone to come lounge on them.
Here is a before + after of the dining area. Since it is a small, boxy space I brought in a round dining table and simple modern dining chairs.
Designer tip: try hanging art asymmetrically for an unexpected touch.
Here are my suggestions for bringing a killer Modern Boho vibe to your own home:
- Pile on texture // A shag rug, tasseled throw, nubby pillows and fluffy juju hat really upped the cozy factor in this space.
- Don't be afraid of color // Start with a colorful statement piece and let that be the guide for your room's color scheme.
- Use wood tones // The carved wood coffee table, dining chairs and wood legs of the other pieces helped warm up the cool color palette.
