Bohemian Interiors

Bohemian is often described as “A person, possibly an artist or writer, who lives and acts free of regard for conventional rules and practices”. Not much differs when a Bohemian soul decorates their home. Bohemian interiors are eclectic. They do not follow rules, fads or fashions. Bohemian homes are inspired by world travel and decorated with objects from afar. A true bohemian does not worry about purchasing expensive items, but rather items with character. The homes are often colorful, whimsical and full of vintage elements. Bohemian homes have soul.

What is “The Boho Life”?

“The Boho Life” is the life I imagine living. A life in which I am liberated from the farces of society. A life in which I am mentally and psychically free. A life in which I let my artistic soul shine. A life in which I travel often. A life in which I live by the ideals of truth, freedom and love. It is the life I inspire to live everyday.

@ Home With: The Spade’s

Homes are lived in. Yes, it’s that simple. Many times you see images in magazines and the interior is just too “perfect”. I was immediately drawn to the images of Kate & Andy Spade’s apartment. The Spade’s obviously live in their apartment.  (Check out the soot on the fireplace!!!)  Their home has a “come, stay awhile” vibe. I would love to curl up on the sofa, read one of their many books and enjoy a fire.  Oh, and the high gloss red walls, oh my!!!

Travel Diary: Italia {Part 2} – Napoli

A few weeks ago I posted “Italia {Part 1) – Roma” which briefly describes the first portion of my trip to Italy a few years ago and how I absolutely fell head over heals in love. Here is Part 2 …

From Rome we traveled south to Naples. We used Naples as a base to take day trips to Pompeii, Capri, and the Almalfi coast. My two favorite things about Naples are the pizza and the place we stayed. If you are visiting Naples you MUST eat at Da Michelle (via Cesare Serale 1). The hostel was called 6 Small Rooms. It was only 20 euros a night and the experience and the people I met were amazing. I met an Australian girl named Luci, we both rearranged our trips slightly so we could rendezvous in Cinque Terre later in our trips, but (of course) that adventure will come in a bit. For now, Napoli and the surrounding area…

Naples…

Pompeii…

the island of Capri…

Safe Harbor

Lately, I have been repeating this mantra to myself… “good thoughts or no thoughts” whenever a negative thought comes to mind. As I repeat this mantra to myself the below passage from Eat, Pray, Love comes to mind. There was a time when I read this passage 20 times a day….

“So I’ve started being vigilant about watching my thoughts all day, and monitoring them. I repeat this vow about 700 times a day: “I will not harbor unhealthy thoughts anymore.” Every time a diminishing thought arises, I repeat the vow. I will not harbor unhealthy thoughts anymore. The first time I heard myself say this, my inner ear perked up at the word “harbor,” which is a noun as well as a verb. A harbor, of course, is a place of refuge, a port of entry. I pictured the harbor of my mind – a little beat-up, perhaps, a little storm-worn, but well situated and with a nice depth. The harbor of my mind is an open bay, the only access to the island of my Self (which is a young and volcanic island, yes, but fertile and promising). This island has been through some wars, it is true, but it is now committed to peace, under a new leader (me) who has instituted new policies to protect the place. And now – let the word go out across the seven seas – there are much, much stricter laws on the books about who may enter this harbor.

You may not come here anymore with your hard and abusive thoughts, with your plague ships of thoughts, with your slave ships of thoughts, with your warships of thoughts – all these will be turned away. Likewise, any thoughts that are filled with angry or starving exiles, with malcontents and pamphleteers, mutineers and violent assassins, desperate prostitutes, pimps and seditious stowaways – you may not come here anymore, either. Cannibalistic thoughts, for obvious reasons, will no longer be received. Even missionaries will be screened carefully, for sincerity. This is a peaceful harbor, the entryway to a fine and proud island that is only now beginning to cultivate tranquility. If you can abide by these new laws, my dear thoughts, then you are welcome in my mind – otherwise, I shall turn you all back toward the sea from whence you came.

That is my mission, and it will never end.”  Eat, Pray, Love… Elizabeth Gilbert
