MY Bo­hostyle

GEN­TLE COL­ORS, IN­TRIGU­ING ART, AND A HINT OF VIN­TAGE HOL­LY­WOOD GLAM­OUR RE­FLECT A RO­MAN­TIC SPIRIT.

Country Sampler - BOHO Style - - WORTH THE TRIP STEAL THE LOOK -

1. Color In­spi­ra­tion

“Cre­at­ing Boho Style mag­a­zine in­spired me to ex­per­i­ment with the look in my home,” Fifi says. “I fell for the end­less pos­si­bil­i­ties the style al­lows.” Al­though vi­brant col­ors are very boho, Fifi chose a dreamy toned-down ver­sion and a some­what less eclec­tic de­sign ap­proach.

2. Col­lect­ing Art

“Luck­ily, I get to re­search artists and ar­ti­sans for the var­i­ous mag­a­zines I pro­duce, so I come across some fab­u­lous ones,” Fifi ex­plains. “My pref­er­ences tend to­ward quirky an­i­mal paint­ings, pieces that speak of sen­ti­ments such as love, and hand­made hearts. For her din­ing room, Fifi cre­ated a col­lage from images she loves from photo shoots she has been on.

3. Best Bud­get Trick

Paint is Fifi’s BFF! It’s in­ex­pen­sive and a great (and easy) way to up­date or trans­form just about any­thing. Choose the right paint and you can even paint up­hol­stery or a rug!

4. Must Have

“Soft light­ing is a must, but there are times when you need to turn up the watts,” Fifi says. She out­fit­ted all of her lamps and chan­de­liers with dim­mer switches so she can con­trol the level for each as needed. “Ex­ten­sion cords with dim­mers are read­ily avail­able at most hard­ware stores for about $10.”
