beautiful boho modern home in California

It’s all going modern in the design world these days.  Everywhere you look it’s crisp white walls, clean lines, geometric rugs, and color pops in the pillows.  And while it’s absolute eye-candy, sometimes its hard to imagine someone actually living there.  Do they have dogs? Or kids?? Do they sit in those metal chairs for longer than 15 minutes?? They must clean. Every. Single. Day. The questions just seem to just burn a hole in my brain.  Because as much as I am about beauty, a design has to be comfortable and functional, too.

So what’s the answer to a practical modern home that is chic and cozy?  The bohemian modern look, of course.  It’s stylish yet feels lived in.  I can’t get enough of the natural, understated beauty.

The ever-so-talented Becki Owens and Nicole Davis posted this project on Instagram awhile back, and it’s like the angels were singing out of the heavens.  Featured on Domaine Home, this amazing California home marries modern style with everyday comfort.

I could totally see myself hanging out here. Reading a magazine.  Basking in all that natural light.

And this kitchen! Simple, white, and gorgeous.  The rug really adds a fun color pop.

The warm woods, natural textures, and rich accent colors really breathe life into each room.

Did anyone catch Austinite Chelsea Fullerton’s home tour on the Everygirl?  If not, feast your eyes on this slice of design pie.

Chelsea is a lover of all things made.  Whether it’s designing a logo or website, or creating a piece of furniture with her husband, it’s clear she loves the process of telling her story through design.  So much so, that she helps others do the same.  She launched her company Go Forth Creative back in 2012, offering creative direction to other businesses.

Judging by what she did with her home, I could safely trust her with my life.

In the article, she mentions her love of Craigs list bargain hunting and shares tips on working from home.  I’m pretty sure we could be bff’s.

I love the little accents of Texas throughout her home.

I’m a sucker for anything that is crisp white or mid-century.  So it comes as no surprise that I was instantly obsessed with writer Kelly Oxford’s Palm Springs residence.  Add in some natural fiber rugs, pops of emerald green, and some plant life, and I’m all in.

Homepolish Designer Orlando Soria (aka Emily Henderson’s old right hand man) was the brainchild behind this lovely project.  Truly, he is a design rock star and I am always excited to see his work because you never know what his creative next move might be.  He’s fearless when it comes to design, a trait he definitely shares with Emily.  And if you follow him on Instagram you know he’s also pretty hilarious.

What a great idea to stagger the 2 coffee tables.  Great way to fill the huge space between the sofas but not in a massive, cluttered way.Homepolish- Kelly Oxford's Living Room

Beautiful kilim rug.  And the copper bar stools really give the bar some bling.
