I bet you thought I’d forgotten about decorating. But no, that will never happen. I love decorating and always have.
In fact I can’t sit in my chair, look around my apartment, and not want to move something or other.
So today I have the same seating space in my living room styled three different ways. The furniture stays in place, but the decor changes.
The Boho Look:
There is a small Buddha, a candle, boho books and a house plant. All things that bring back the seventies for me. And baskets for texture.
This is a space that is supposed to lend a sense of peace and tranquility.
I don’t care for the boho spaces that are filled to the max with things. That look is too cluttered for me.
Boho decorating means you can do most anything. You can blend patterns or mix up the style of furniture. Whatever your preference or taste.
The Farmhouse Look:
After what I’ve been through in the past months with my back, I was not going to take down the boho quilt on the wall or the boho wall hangings. So just pretend they aren’t there if you want.
The farmhouse look is more rustic, although the “modern farmhouse style” that has become popular is more refined.
With the farmhouse look I like to think of wide open spaces with trees and vast fields of wildflowers.
I switched out the books and the chair pillow and also the decor.
The Cottage/Vintage Look:
I often don’t see a lot of difference between the cottage style and vintage style.
Here, with the candles and white pitchers and vintage box, the style could be considered cottage or vintage. Cottage decorating often has vintage vibes.
I intended to switch out the chair pillow here, but Ivy simply wouldn’t allow it.
I’d move her off the chair, go to get a pillow, only to come back and find her sprawled out again. She thinks of this chair as her chair.
And Now, It’s Back To Being Ivy’s Chair:
Ivy likes a soft blanket to sleep on. I’m not going for style now, just what is comfortable for the three of us.
The 8 X 10 of my daughters and their families is right back where I can see it again from my recliner.
Do you have a preference for any of the styles? What is the decor style in your home?
On another note, Kendra has finished her flip house and her photographer has already been there to take photos. She sent some to me and once I size them properly I’ll show them to you.
