  1. I’m really a great fan of seeing boho-inspired designs especially home interiors. You were so creative about turning your house into another place. That is something that I’ve really wanted at my house too. Seeing that photo’s made me more inspired.

  2. Boho You have great talent and photography is wonderful.

  3. As always, your decorators eye has shown through and everything looks wonderful!

  4. Wow, nice changes. I love changing my interior on a budget. You might like Lots of boho stuff very cheap but shipping takes longer. I got pillow covers for a couple dollars. Many things are free with just shipping cost of 2 or 3 dollars. It’s fun to look around at the site! Love your new evolving look!

  5. It all looks great, Brenda, but I miss the cow!

    I don’t think you could do any decorating in your apartment that would not look really well-tho’t-out. The things I like the best are the placemats with the wooden flowers which look quite expensive and the macrame wall hangings. Also, the plant painting. I also really like the array of pillows on your couch. The different patterns all combine to make an interesting collection.

    I’m wondering whether you have changed the decor over your dining table. Seems like you did do something different a few days ago but I can’t remember for sure what it was.

    I’ve found myself in kind of a switch-it-out and up-date-it mood lately, too. I went to Goodwill today with my sister and found a few things none of which was decorative except a photo frame and mat with places for two photos that I am planning to fill with images of our cat that just passed away. Anyway, I have enough of a stash in my house already that I can cull for new decor! Am wanting to get my sewing machine out and make some new pillow covers and maybe some drapes for my slider. Hope my energy holds out!

    Thanks for showing your new decor today, Brenda. I hope it lifts your spirits and helps you not worry too much about Charlie. Give him a pat for me and tell Miss Ivy to stay out of trouble! Did you ever find your watch?

  6. It all looks so pretty Brenda!
    My favorite, the placemats and wood flowers! Awesome!

  7. Hi Brenda, I hope you are doing well. I miss seeing your pretty patio. Hope everything didn’t burn up in this awful heat . I like the make over on the walls. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

    1. The tree that hangs over the fence has branches nearly to the ground about to break. And it’s too heavy for me to deal with. Have to wait until someone can get to me.

  8. Hi, I love everything you did. It’s your home so you should do whatever you want! Love the added orange pillow that gives a nod to the coming Autumn. I always have a few antique quilts draped or hanging somewhere. That’s where the coziness comes in! I’m looking forward to baskets of pine cones, pumpkins, vased tree branches, golden leaves and spicy apple scented candles. Welcome Fall!!

  9. Fun touches! Have you ever visited The Wicker House blog? She loves thrift/boho things, too.

  10. I am amazed at how many ideas you always come up with Brenda!! It looks spacious and not crowded…something hard to achieve in apts…how well I know!!

  11. Looks great, Brenda. Change is good. New season , new look.

  12. I love your redecoration! It’s always fun to see what you will do with what you have. i want to say again that I follow your blog because you are truly creative. Anyone can throw a bunch of money at something and say “they” redecorated it. That take zero creativity. You are frugal and creative and I really admire that! Thanks for you fun ideas.

  13. Your home is lovely…. it always is but the new space seems to be more tranquil.

  14. Very peaceful and cozy. I love the macrame and throw. Just pleasing.

  15. Your place has the feel of an art gallery. You certainly have a flair for decorating.

  16. Honestly Brenda you are the queen of thrift and your home looks wonderful, the way you draped the vine over the picture it looks fabulous!

    I particularly like the place mats with the wooden flowers. I wouldn’t have thought of putting them on the wall but they definitely belong there.

    You have a lovely home full of interesting and surprising things.

  17. I love it! It looks great, so natural, so organic, but also restful and stylish at the same time – and urban. Not country. There is a hip vibe but not cutesy. Does that make sense? Nice finds! I really like the two wood flower medallions that you tacked to the placemats on the wall. The natural texture of the placemats plays beautfully off the wood flowers. I like them unpainted, they echo other wood elements in the room and have a natural, relaxed feeling to them that I think painting might take away. If you paint the flowers I think that would tend more toward a country vibe that you’ve moved away from. I love the macrame hangings, they are just the right accessories for the space. Charlie looks right at home on the sofa.

  18. It looks great, Brenda. It’s amazing what can be done for little money. I was looking at those round trays at Home Goods the other day and thought about buying one, but decided my coffee table was too narrow for it. I see lots of things there that I really love. xo Laura

  19. I like the new wall hanging very much. The color is bright but the pattern is soothing. I still love your quilts though and hate to see them relegated to the closet. Your idea with the placemats and wooden flowers looks so pretty and expensive. You’re a wizard with a little bit of money, Brenda. Still love that green piece of furniture. The color is great and green always blends and soothes our eyes. I think your photographs are great and bet you could sell them via Etsy or EBay. Since you started using macrame I see it more and more. Thinking you’re right on the decorating trend.
    I had to take my little 8 lb tripod kitty to the vet yesterday. She got a cold and had the sniffles and had a fever of 103. She was dehydrated too. So they gave her two meds and fluids but being a Warrior Princess she had all her weapons out and fought them tooth and nail. 8 lbs fo fighting fury ! But by evening she was doing great and wanted to play and wouldn’t let me get to sleep for an hour before bed. Now today wish me luck while I have to continue the meds. Will have to wrap her like a burrito to try to give her the meds. She’s not been sick in six years since her operation to remove a broken gangrene leg. She did this somehow as a kitten in a feral colony. Took her years to accept me but now I’m her Mom and she’s my little tuxedo vixen who rules with three mighty paws. I seem to be her willing servant. Have a good day, Brenda. Love watching your creativity when you get in these whirls of creativity.

    1. Aw, I hope all goes well. People like you are who I admire most. Never had to give Ivy medication. I can’t imagine that. She is big and heavy and strong.

  20. Hi Brenda – I love your new BoHo look!! Absolutely beautiful and I love seeing your sweet fur babies!!
