Boho Luxe Living | Home Inspiration

I mentioned a few week’s ago that this year I’m working with Wayfair, on their Home Experts panel.

My first challenge was to create a post celebrating the colour of the year ‘Greenery’ and more recently I was asked if I’d like to pick six of my favourite products, from their site, and discuss why I liked them.

Definitely easier said than done!

There are thousands of products to choose from so narrowing them down to a handful was quite tricky.

Creating A Look — The Boho Luxe Interior Edit

To make life a little simpler, I decided to work on a room theme — Boho Luxe — and source the product to create the look.

Imagine opulent velvets and sleek marble, tempered with colourful Moroccan inspired cushions and Boucherouite rugs.

Think laid back style — with a little rock star detailing — and you’ll get the picture.

Seeking Inspiration

Very often, when you’re creating a look for a room, the best way forward is to use a picture for reference — and pick your pieces to suit.

Interiors magazines used to be the go-to reference for all things ‘home’ but, these days, Pinterest is a fantastic tool for seeking out inspiration.

Once you’ve chosen an image — or two — that represent the kind of look you want for your home, it’s easy to source the product.

Particularly on one-stop home shopping sites like Wayfair. They’ve got so many fabulous things — to fit so many different tastes and themes — that finding product to suit a particular look is easy.

Much simpler that just scrolling through and selecting products at random. The choice is so large — and varied — that it’s a little baffling if you don’t have a clear starting point.

So there we have it!

My six blogger’s picks for Wayfair, for a Boho Luxe room theme.

This year I’m really excited to be working with Wayfair, on their ‘Home Experts’ programme. Over the next 12 months, I’ll be bringing you lots of lovely ideas from their website. Watch this space!

    Gorgeous picks. Wayfair has a great range. I love my bits from there and was just on the site again the other day.

      There’s so much choice isn’t there? Lots that’s not to my taste at all but some real gems that most definitely are!!!! :)

    Looks incredible! I love the Orchid in the dome, so pretty :) Wayfair is brilliant, there is so much choice. I wish we could have a velvet coach, but I’m pretty sure our dogs would ruin it in a matter of days.

      It’s funny — I’ve had an orchid in a dome for 5 or 6 years now!! It’s the only item I picked that I actually own!!! I’d LOVE that sofa!!!

    Love Love Love – this is exactly how I decide on how I want to style a room, Wayfair is the perfect place for inspiration too. Sometimes I will look their and find one item I know I want and style round that xxx

      I’m the same Kara — sometimes one item is all you need to create the scheme for a whole room! Wayfair have some fab stuff don’t they? :)

    Great picks… I really like that little marble side table! #HomeEtc

    • 24th February 2017 / 10:01 am

      That — apart from the sofa — was my fave thing Lizzie!!! Such a useful little table — and very cool :)

    OOh I love these ideas, such beautiful colours. I love Wayfair, they always have so many gorgeous things to lust over! xx #HomeEtc

    • 24th February 2017 / 10:00 am

      They’ve SUCH a lot of stuff haven’t they? Some real gems :)

    Ooh good picks! That is a good idea to have a photo for inspirational before shopping, there are so many choices out there. It’s good that Wayfair have everything on one site. I like the look of Boho Luxe, looks very luxurious! x

      It definitely helps — otherwise you may run the risk of picking a load of things that don’t sit together!! ;)

    I think this is one of my favourite looks of the moment – glam without being OTT, easy to live with, but a bit special too – beautiful! Philippa x #HomeEtc

    • 24th February 2017 / 9:51 am

      Same! I love a bit of glitz and glamour but it’s so much easier to live with when it’s toned down with a bit of boho!!

    Love this theme, I think it would be my dream living room. Velvet and gold. Such gorgeous colours. Love how you approached the challenge. It’s interesting where we get our interiors inspiration.

    • 24th February 2017 / 9:50 am

      Thanks Gemma :) It’s weird — asking me to pick 6 things felt like an insurmountable task but, as soon as I had a brief to work to, it made everything much simpler!!

  9. 23rd February 2017 / 1:45 pm

    Ooh fab picks! I especially love the sofa – makes me want to put on my best frock and lounge elegantly on it! #HomeEtc

  10. 23rd February 2017 / 2:52 pm

    Love it. The room reminds me of one of my faves on the house tours. Love Wayfair. #HomeEtc

    • 24th February 2017 / 9:43 am

      Aah I WISH I’d done those house tours!!! I would have absolutely loved that! :)

  11. 25th February 2017 / 12:43 pm

    Ooh looks fabulously luxurious. I like it. I’m a new Wayfair convert and featured them in my post last week – just cos I like their stuff! I’m a huge Pinterest convert too – works brilliantly for any interior design/projects.

    • 26th February 2017 / 10:22 am

      They have some really fab things don’t they? Just so MANY to choose from though!!Thank good ness for Pinterest eh?!:)

  12. 25th February 2017 / 3:41 pm

    I love that Kate Moss print. I almost ordered it a few weeks back from Desenio. I love that whole room, to be honest. It’s not a look I could live with but I really like it.

    • 26th February 2017 / 10:21 am

      Me too!! I could definitely live with that room — in fact that style is more me, I think, than any other. We’ve such a mix of things in our home; it nice that these days anything goes :)

  13. 25th February 2017 / 8:24 pm

    This is such a great way to style a theme! I love your picks, I agree there is just too much choice on their wonderful website :) Looking forward to hearing about your other projects across the year Xx

    • 26th February 2017 / 10:17 am

      SO much choice!! I get a bit overwhelmed when there’s so many things to look at. Much better for me to have a vague idea of what I want and go and search for it!! :)

  14. 28th February 2017 / 12:31 pm

    This is one of my fave looks at the moment – I adore all the velvet and the greens and pinks :) Great choices and lovely items! Jess xx
