Cane Papasan.

Since painting the garden room l'd been looking for something a bit funky for this corner, and when l spotted this cane papasan at Ishka, lt just felt right.....but of course that didn't stop me from pondering over it for a couple of weeks before l splashed the cash:-) It's really comfy and some colour was added to the room by adding bright cushions......l used some 70's daisy fabric to make the large blue one....(Garden room before.... here.)

 70's shawls were added to the chairs and tables for a bit of fun.

So then this wall was screaming for new artwork.....l wanted something 70's inspired to go with "the look" so l painted a square canvas which was then turned on the diagonal. l then drew a peace sign and trying to think OUTSIDE the square l then CUT the peace sign out, l added stitching and hung twist cords and tassels which were also made to match. Beads and bits finish the artwork. l like that it's different from anything else l've seen.
Detail of the 70's inspired stitching and  multicoloured cords.

This little vase was one l created yonks ago. Originally the vase was just plain....l added shells and pearls using Tarzan Grip glue and when dry the entire vase was painted in white pearl nail polish to give it a pretty pearl sheen.

By changing the cushions and table accessories to pretty pastel colours, it's easy to give the corner a more of a shabby romantic feel. 
Have a wonderful rest of your weekend everyone. Thanks so much for stopping by.

The New Boho.

l hope you enjoy the post today.....none of the images are mine, but l really wanted to share a few of these pretty boho interiors with you. Some are from a new book l discovered this week called The New Bohemians (by Justina Blakeney). Her images reflect a new lighter bohemian look that's a bit vintage, but with a light, bright, modern vibe. Her blog is here.

Found on Pinterest but source unknown.

Hope your weekend's going great for you and yours:-) Thanks for stopping by.
