Bohemian and Cottage Style

(Patina Rental)

I've always loved a Bohemian Cottage look. The fun informal look is very charming.

Designer, Alison Kandler has the perfect cottage style. 
Shes not afraid of using color and has a whimsical feel.

An array of different fabrics, textures, patterns and color are mixed together in layers to reflect a cozy, fun feel.


The look has a spirit that is infused with collected pieces..

To create this look you will need vintage pieces and handmade items. To give it more of a  bohemian look add some hand blocked fabric and pieces from your travels.

Mixing a hand blocked fabric to an antique sofa or chair is another way to add charm to this look. 

I think the most important part of this look is to have fun with it....don't be to serious!

Son up-date!
 Hes doing much better and after 3 surgeries he is now being moved to another hospital where he will be in a P.T. program. He might need one more surgery down the line, but for now we are so thankful he is alive and kicking! He is so sick of being in a hospital and can't wait to come home.

Thanks for stopping by,
