10 Tell-Tale Signs that Your Home Style Is Bohemian

Bohemian Rooms

I found this great read with lots of images on bohemian rooms.  Originally, I started out looking for ideas to rejuvenate and bring in some positive vibes in my combo art studio and office, what my husband has since titled, “The Stoffice.”  There were some excellent images I found for all the different rooms in a house, including some very small spaces, like your bathroom.  I love the idea of having plants throughout the house, they clean the air, bring in an earthly scent, just plain and simply – they balance your home.  I have some upcoming articles on house plants later this month. 

Some key points in this post resonating with me where the call-outs to each style, all centered on a “laid back,” but not junky look.  Yes, if you are hoarding too much stuff in piles and stacks creating massive clutter, now would be the time to send some of those unused items to a local charity or have a charity themed yard sale with a BBQ and invite your friends to dump their goods off and raise money for several of your favorite charities. Yes, I am philanthropic by nature and worked in that field for several years and it was some of the most rewarding times of my life, and it’s a good way to celebrate National Courtesy month in September before autumn rears its red leaves and crisp air.

I will call out the 10 signs as shown courtesy of www.apartmenttherapy.com, but please visit their blog to see all of the amazing the images, they are pretty cool.

  1. Your favorite colors are tie-dye and suzani
  2. You haven’t seen an actual, honest-to-goodness floor since 2010
  3. You own more plants than furniture
  4. Morocco called the other day and they want all their ottomans, lanterns and pillows back. (OMG – I definitely fall into this category)
  5. You know that the only thing that works with pattern is another pattern
  6. You tie your shoelaces with macramé knots.
  7. You’ll embrace minimalism right after Elton John does. (loved this one – check out the picture of the room at apartment therapy, it was so funny)
  8. You have no idea where this “mall” is that everyone keeps talking about.
  9. You like your mattresses low, and your canopies high. (and my dog Mardi loves it too)

Mindfulness Monday – Simply Breathe

The purest form of mindfulness is to breathe simply.

The caveat here with the exercise is to breathe with conscious effort.  All those breaths have a purpose besides keeping your heart and brain going.  We challenge you to start a 5 Mindful Breaths exercise you can do every day, before work, at work, after work, anywhere you like.  Rules of engagement are you will use these five deep breaths of fresh air to think free and preferably concentrate on only the breathing.  This exercise is particularly useful if you are feeling restless, anxious, angry, or stressed.  Use the time to focus on only one thought or image.  If necessary close your eyes and picture something that brings you peace, joy, makes you feel relaxed and hold on to it.  When you complete the exercise, you will notice a difference in your state of mind and a big dose of H2O is healthy for you too.

In Season – Watermelon

The JadeCrate newsletter comes with a recipe, usually comprised of in-season vegetables and a protein.  However, it’s July, it’s hot, thirst beats out hunger in this simple recipe.

If you are looking for something refreshing and unique and maybe you are a vegetarian or vegan, you just might love this recipe from allrecipes.com (modified slightly)

Fresh Watermelon Water

  • 4 cups cubed seedless watermelon – deseed if you are using one with seeds, otherwise, the texture is too grainy.
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup white sugar, or to taste (original recipe calls for 1/2 cup – way too sweet)
  • 12-24 fresh mint leaves (this is a to taste option)
  • 2 Tablespoons of fresh lime juice
  • Lime slices for garnish
  • Lots of ice

Puree the watermelon and water in a blender until smooth. Muddle the sugar, lime juice, and 12 to 24 of the fresh mint leaves.  Evenly distribute the muddled mixture into the bottom of 6-8 glasses.  Fill each glass with ice. Pour in the watermelon water, and stir before serving. Garnish with lime slices and a few mint leaves.

If you are looking to create an adult beverage, you can add a jigger of GOOD vodka to the glasses before pouring the watermelon water.  Cheers and Enjoy
