A BOHEMIAN CHIC CALIFORNIAN HOME

amberint2

First of all I want to wish you all the best for 2015. May this new year be filled with joy, happiness, love and laughter! I took a unintended break as I was feeling very sick because of a mild pneumonia. Luckily I feel much better now and I am ready to kick off the new year with a new blog post! This beautiful Californian home is designed by Amber Interiors. It is the type of home that I love: cozy, stylish, with a bohemian chic touch. The mix of patterns and colors is just beautiful. The vintage rugs and pillows give the various spaces lots of warmth and character. Vintage pillows and rugs are available from Le Souk and from Amber’s shop.

A BRIGHT & COZY ATTIC BEDROOM

Can you believe that this beautiful bright bedroom used to be a dark and cold attic full with stuff that wasn’t being used? By creating large windows and painting walls and floors white the attic space was transformed in a light and modern room. Beautiful!

TOUR AROUND OUR HOME: HANDRAIL MADE OF BRANCHES

style-files-home-branch-2

For many years I had the idea in my head to use branches as a handrail for our stairs. The project was not easy to execute as we had to find suitable branches which were long enough and had the right curves (sort of a needle in a haystack..). We asked a carpenter if he could make the handrail and the next weekend he found these branches on a beach. They were perfect for our staircase! Previous tours around my home: our living room, our kitchen, our garden, our bathroom, our master bedroom, Kick’s bedroom and playroom.
