My client wanted a brand new bedroom design that encompassed the boho trend. So I transformed her bedroom into a plant-filled bohemian utopia. I knew my client wanted a statement bed frame, so when I saw the curved rattan bed frame from Anthropologie, I knew it was the one!
The client also wanted some kind of accent wall. We discussed painting the whole room pink including the ceiling, but my client was not 100% sold on that idea. I then came across The Tawny mural wallpaper by Anewall, and we both knew it would be perfect. The subtle watercolor strokes added just enough color to the room, without overpowering the statement bed frame.
Next I found beautiful planters from Urban Outfitters, Terrain, and LBE designs, and my friend Veronica Chacón, who is a plant expert, filled the planters with the most beautiful plants, adding life to the room. The crescent moon shaped mirrors came from 1st dibs; I thought they were the ideal thing to go above the dresser. I mounted them in a way so that they served as an art piece, as well as a mirror. I love when things are functional, and still pleasing to the eye. The floor mirror from Urban Outfitters is just that. It’s the ultimate #OOTD mirror!
Additionally, I added three vases to the room that hold dried floral arrangements that I created myself. Michele loves plants, and flowers, but I didn’t want her to have to buy fresh new flowers every week. Dried flowers and orchids are the perfect solution to that problem. Lastly, I added some accents to the room like the velvet shell pillows from Tamar Mogendorff. My client’s nickname has always been “Shells,” so these were perfect for her!
