As many of you know, I have been working diligently on decorating my new bungalow. The process is about finished and the last piece I have to show you is the living room! Having an older home, my apartment is filled with gorgeous dark wood details, so I decided there needed to be some whites brought into the mix to brighten up the space. To go with the bohemian theme, I wanted a Moroccan shag rug, much like the Beni Ourain versions you might have seen on the internet. When I found this version of a Beni Ourain from Rugs USA, I knew it had to be mine. The details are a bit different than the standard Moroccan shag rugs and I liked it better that way. The white of the rug was the perfect balance to the darker wood details of our home.
I sprinkled around some decorations that I felt fit the LA vibe and also were (somewhat) gender neutral so Jack had his space too. Along with the decorations I added (pineapples, throw pillows, etc.) I incorporated some of Jack’s items such as the thrifted lamp we found in Northern California at a thrift store and his plant. When living with another person, it is important to make the space comfortable for both parties.
I hope you enjoyed the reveal process of #bohemiansbungalow! I’m sure I’ll be adding pieces and moving things around in the future, so follow along.
