I mentioned a month back that we bought our very first house. While things are slowly coming together over here (not fast enough if you ask me mid reno), I must admit I am slightly overwhelmed decorating and entire house after living in small apartments for the past decade or so. The house has a harbor view, and since I’ve always has an affinity for nautical, I am so excited to fuse my beloved bohemian style with some coastal cool and a touch of glam. While looking for decor inspiration, I’ve been pinning like crazy, and luckily Amy from LuxeDecor offered to write a guest post with her take on glam bohemian coastal decor for expert inspo. Whether you’re landlocked or live close to the sea, there are endless ways to give your home a splash of boho glam. A combination of nautical elements mixed with shabby chic décor offers a casual and contemporary atmosphere that will impart warm and fuzzy feelings all year long. If you’re looking to add a beachy spin to your abode, here are some creative and clever ways to amp up the vacation vibes.
A front entry table sets the stage for the tone of the rest of the house. Pretty and practical, a wooden tabletop is the perfect spot for seashells, cutesy frames and aqua crystal lamps. A few wicker baskets and a jar of baby’s breath add to the romantic maritime feel of this welcoming entry.
For those eternal vagabonds, a rustic boho bedroom feels contemporary and chic. A shag rug, cactus plants and a sequin throw pillow make for an eccentric and cozy space. A pallet wall statement adds a bit of fresh flair and can be using for showcasing hats, travel collectibles and mirrors.
A stylish den is outfitted with colorful retro pillows, a graphic floor rug and velvet couches. An accent wall painted in black offers a spot for displaying hand painted artwork and other exotic treasures. An ivory chandelier is the finishing touch on this whimsical living area.
Even if your outdoor lounge has no water views, you can manage a pretty gypsy lair that will be the perfect spot for entertaining into the wee hours. A glitzy red pendant lamp offers enough light for dining while a sofa filled with fun accent pillows offers a space for guests to crash and converse.
Add a little bit of beachy Moroccan magic to any home with a colorful bathroom retreat. Textured sapphire paint, a hanging rug and pendant lanterns infuse charm and sophistication to this hippie happy loo. A bowl bathtub is the finishing touch on this spot perfect for long candlelit soaks with a book about faraway destinations.
