Going Boho Part 3: Teasing Textures

The Candy Files: What’s hot, what’s not and what’s what at my place. This week…

House Candy = Shag Pile

I’ve found my boho. After some deliberation I have discovered where I sit on the bohemian style scale and it’s round about here. It’s eclectic, but not too bonkers. It’s got colour pops but not full on colour. It’s comfy, with touches of glam and importantly for this post - it’s fluffy underfoot. 

I like the boho rug situation and the artistic mix of pattern and texture. I like the aztec designs and the ability to throw together multiple shapes and sizes. It makes me re-assess my own conventional attitude to flooring - all the practical fitted carpets and boringly plain rugs  - and it makes me realise that if I want to be more boho, I’m going to need a really good shag pile. 

There, I’ve said it. A sumptuous shaggy carpet is the missing piece in my style jigsaw and I think I may have found the perfect one here…

Fine and Candy = Shaggy Lamp

Abigail Ahern has changed my interior thinking for ever. Stuff that once I would never have looked twice at, is now the stuff my dreams are made of. This lamp is a case in point. It’s a classic AA game changer. Consider this the maxi skirt of your boho interior wardrobe. 
(Pssst... I’ve seen it in real life and it is even more beautiful)

Candy Pandy = Shaggy off of Scooby Doo

 No matter how much I try to relax into this bohemian vibe, I’m still more of a Freddie girl than a Shaggy girl.

A man that can accessorise… Swoon.

Where do you fit on the boho scale?  Spotted any boho House Candy?
I’d be so honoured if you’d share x
