Gypsy By The Sea

Here in Northern California it has been non stop rain for over a week. As I sit curled up in a warm cozy blanket with an era transcending book, sipping on aromatic tea, my mind wanders to sun kissed days filled with salty sea air. For now I must wait for the seasons to change and travel opportunities to arise.



 Recently I was asked to share a vision of my dream living room. The above collection  reflects the textures, tones and elements that are natures beauty of the coast. Hathi gold beaded pillows are the perfect bohemi element to add to any sofa or to make a cushy back to the antique cream iron chair. Imagine the sun glistening off the Taza hanging pendant during the day and at night a warm glow illuminates the wall. A river stone bowl is perfect for holding your treasures, coins, or perhaps for burning cone incense. What a swirl of sand and water this Zara Tibetan rug brings to mind. The bleached root coffee table brings the outdoor zen inside, a perfect way to stay rooted and connected to the world outside your home. This living room vision speaks to me as being a
Gypsy By The Sea

 All these furnishings and more can be found  at ARHAUS.

  1. This style reminds me totally of you, Holly, 'Gypsy by the Sea,' as you love the ocean. The hanging lantern is cool, and I like the antique iron chair. Yes, rain for over a week, and your cozy blanket, book, and tea sounds nice right now.

  2. The weather was all right around here, until yesterday. Now there is a mess of snow outside. So, like you, I'm inside sipping tea and waiting for better/warmer days. You well get yours before I do, lol.

    Love the picture of your dream living room--the colors and textures match my own taste.
