Room Refresh // Global Traveler Living Room

Hey all! It’s time for another Room Refresh! Today we’re featuring the “global traveler” – someone who picks up things from their ventures, and just keeps adding! This style sort of sees no limits when it comes to pattern, texture and color. Inspired by the textures and patterns of other cultures, deep saturated hues are your calling, and everything in your home looks like it has a story behind it. Your bohemian quarters have great mood lighting, incense, and good books.

Here’s some inspiration to jump start your quest for the perfect boho home:

The best part about this style is you can never have too many trinkets, the more the merrier. Gathering things over time from the different places you’ve traveled is really the best way to pull this look together, but we were able get a similar vibe from objects available near you. *(Just in case you weren’t planning on going to South Africa or Morocco any time in the near future)

Room Refresh // Eclectic Living Room

If you’re anything like me, every so often the rooms in your pad need a little refreshing. I currently live in a pretty big place with three other ladies, so filling it up has been a bit of a process. This past weekend, we finally decided on teaming up to beautify the place, so we went to Ikea, and had a field day. The trip inspired a new series for G&M on affordable room updates – Room Refresh.

This month’s Room Refresh focuses on living rooms and our first theme is the “Eclectic Collector.” Christa and I are big fans of mixing and matching colors, prints, and textures. When we team up at Goodwill, it’s actually a little frightening for the employees, because we go nuts. The eclectic lady loves jewel tones, mixing organic with industrial, and pattern pattern pattern. In order to keep this all in check, it’s important to balance the looks with plenty of neutrals. Here are some designs to inspire your search:

These looks are all about finding pieces that speak to you, and just rolling with it. If you’re in the market for a room update and consider yourself a collector of sorts, here are some pieces to kick off your hunt:
