Home inspiration (and minimal bohemian-ism)




Sometimes (rarely, but sometimes) on Pinterest, I realize that I’m repinning or—as the case happened to be—have already pinned image after image from the same source, the same single post. That happened to me last week, when Eva at Sycamore Street Press posted lovely light-filled images of living rooms, and coined the phrase “minimal bohemian” to describe the aesthetic she had just recognized as hers. And I felt like saying, “Yes!” “Exactly!” “Mine too!” Minimal. Bohemian. Love it.



Until now, I’ve sort of thought one might give it the name California Bohemian (if one were to need to), or something that implied mixing comfortable with “desert modern”; something that felt a little bit Angeleno, if you know what I mean. But it turns out I should be looking to Australia, if this home is any indication. (All of the incredible wood-pieces are by the homeowner, Mark Tuckey. They remind me a little of these incredible Alma Allen pieces we saw at Heath SF.)

Then again, this one, in—yes—East Los Angeles is equally inspiring at the moment…

“Minimal bohemian.” I like it.
