I have two home décor styles loves – bohemian and whimsical. I love the combination of both styles, but there are beautiful elements to both, and one may be the clear winner over the other – you decide. Images courtesy of my curation visit to Pinterest.com.
This week’s battle takes place in the bedroom:

Courtesy of Pinterest.com and House Beautiful The chartreus birds on the pillow is definitely whimsical. The colors is what gives this room a true whimsy vibe.
Courtesy of Pinterest.com Pink acts as the neutral in this whimsical room. I love the mix of styles – mid-century modern nightstand with a pink, ornate bed is a beautiful contrast of styles and what makes a room whimsy.

Courtesy of Pinterest.com I love the Eastern touches and the beautiful contrast of red and green. The dark lacquered four poster bed really anchors the colors in a modern way.
Courtesy of Pinterest.com Real deal bohemian…what my dream Santa Cruz beach cabin would look like. The layers of rugs and textiles is what makes this look truly bohemian. And the Native American headdress and dream catchers is also a nice touch.

Any perception can connect us to reality, properly and fully. What we see doesn't have to be pretty, particularly; we can appreciate anything that exists. There is some principle of magic in everything, some living quality. Something living, something real, is taking place in everything. --Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche
