A Little Bit Boho













It's getting warm here, and we are spending more time puttering on projects and nesting indoors. 
I did not make this bed; I went out to the sleeping porch, and my daughter had relocated and rearranged pillows and throws on the daybed and the sofa.
The silk embroidered, beaded pillows look pretty with the linen shams.










She said, "It needed a bit more black."


















The knitted blanket was knitted by my mother thirty years ago.

















I love it!  
If you collect what you cherish, it can be easily moved to another room for a new look.
Happy Friday!







Thank you! xoxo

    1. Thank you, Olivia. I use to be obsessed with pillows. Well, I still am, but I haven't bought any in a couple of years, though I did buy two pillow covers a couple of months ago. :) Pillow covers are great, if one already has the inserts. Have a wonderful weekend. xoxo Su

  30. How beautiful and yes Boho with vintage charm..I love the blanket your Mom crocheted for you. I have one almost the same made my a dear friend of mine its in black with cross stitching in multi colors. I love your black iron bed frame. I have been on look for one for my guest room. I adore everything about the room and bed.

    1. Thank you, Elizabeth. This bed came from Ikea, and I put two mattresses on it, not the one recommended that comes in three pieces.

  32. The mixture of fabrics, pattern and texture and the glorious colors are perfect together. I do love the needed black your daughter gave it. I can't believe the bed is from ikea, you know I never go there. I knit a lot but I've never knitted a blanket, I might have to after seeing the beautiful one you Mom knitted!
