Color Inspiration Injection!


I had to take the day off from work yesterday to attend the orientation and walk-through for my new apartment downtown... What an exhausting mission! I won't even get into it... The point is, today is my Monday and I need some inspiration to get me through the rest of the week... which won't be too long since I am taking off Friday because that's the day of the big move! U-Haul loading Thursday night... joy.

I am definitely more anxious than ever before and I can't wait to get it all moved so I can begin unpacking and designing/decorating my next blank canvas! Right now my mind is fixated on color! Paint colors that is... The possibilities are endless! There is a soffit in my new place that turns into a small wall which I am fairly sure I want to paint a rich earthy curry mustard yellow color... I'm not sure where to slap on the turquoise yet. Hmmm....

Anyway, here is a random slew of beautiful and inspiring images of various spaces, all of which have a striking element of color, if not several! My mind is in planning overdrive therefore expect more posts today! Ha! Enjoy!



















Unique Christmas Decor


I couldn't resist, there is an abundance of gorgeous ideas for Christmas decorating floating around the net... I hope I can inspire everyone to get original with their decorations this year!! If so, please send me pictures so I can post and share on Inspire Bohemia!! ;)

















And last, but not least... this is quite funny and a cute idea for outdoor Christmas decorating...

All I want for Christmas is....

All I really want for Christmas is for Santa to move all my stuff from my current (ground floor) apartment to my new (16th floor) apartment with his sleigh... It would be nice! But since that is definitely not going to happen, I just hope the whole move goes smoothly (ha!).

But anyway, I usually think of things I want all year long but then forget most of them come Christmas time (which is probably a blessing), here is what I can think of at the moment:

- 1 -

Maybe one or two bohemian hippy fashion pieces to add to my wardrobe.... (not that I really need more clothes, shoes, jewelry or purses to drown in!)
I do need sunglasses and sandals though!

Say hippie aye a

Dance of the Yao People


- 2 -

Season 5 of The Office, the most hilarious show EVER!




- 3 -

A Suzani! I want one so bad... They are absolutely gorgeous!


- 4 -

Since mine mysteriously went missing over six months ago, I'll be needing a digital camera...


- 5 -

I don't know how I made it two years in my own apartment without my own vacuum! Borrowing my mother's vacuum is not an option anymore..... I need my own.


- 6 -

This is always good...
(not really -"more money more problems"- but whatever)


- 7 -


And hey, if Santa can find one of these... all the better...


- 8 -

Oh yes, and I can't forget.... This request is for Santa too....
A PERMANENT VACATION TO GREECE! :)



While I'm there I'd like this patio...........


Or this one......


That's the stuff Christmas wishes are made of right there!!!!! haha...

So, what do YOU want for Christmas this year?
