7 Insta Bedrooms to Dream About

I follow several beloved designers, stylists, and shopkeepers on Instagram who have serious vintage and boho style cred. They grace my feed daily with stacks of Moroccan boucherouite pillows, found rattan baskets and peacock chairs, and plenty of bold color and patterns. I’m a fool for their impeccable styling and am constantly finding inspiration in their vignettes of different interiors. Some of these spaces are used to market the treasures they find for their shops, and some are real spaces that either belong to or were designed by them. Bedrooms are typically on my radar when I look through blogs … Continue reading 7 Insta Bedrooms to Dream About

On Life, Adventures Home, and Falsa Blankets

Sorry for the late post! Life’s been pretty hectic, as usual, and I tend to bite off more than I can chew. My motivation to post on The Tufted more often has dipped a bit, and I’m struggling to juggle everything and still find some personal time. I wish I could dedicate more time to all of the creative stuff I love, like creating posts on this blog, or taking photography classes, or finally making my curtains longer by sewing more fabric and my leftover thrifted tassels onto the bottoms. Even in woodworking, I’m not able to spend more time … Continue reading On Life, Adventures Home, and Falsa Blankets

Fantastic Peacock Chairs and Where to Use Them: 7 Chic Ideas

After a few-decade stint in Saudi Arabia, and some adventures in other parts of the world, my grandparents had amassed a collection of some of the most beautiful textiles and objects I’ve ever seen. From Persian rugs collected during the 70s in Iran, to beautiful etched brass tea sets and poufs bought in my grandma’s native Morocco, these treasures were displayed all over the home where they settled in a San Diego suburb. Once in a while my parents would drive my brothers and I over to visit, and truthfully, most of what they had seemed to me like part … Continue reading Fantastic Peacock Chairs and Where to Use Them: 7 Chic Ideas

The 70s Serigraphs of Hunt Slonem

Hunt Slonem’s colorful serigraphs look to me like more saturated versions of Paul Gauguin paintings, and with similar rich colors and themes. Because of my interest in vintage and my current (and former) job, I’m always learning something new about the art and design of old, and I’m enamored by Slonem’s work! Though known for his Post-Modern bird and bunny paintings (inky outlines of the little critters repeated and hopping all over the canvas that you’ve probably seen), it is Slonem’s vibrant serigraphs of furniture, textiles, and yes, birds of the early 80s that I truly love! I aspire to … Continue reading The 70s Serigraphs of Hunt Slonem

5 Eclectic & Bohemian Holiday Tablescapes

If I posted as quickly as Christmas were coming, this round-up would’ve long been on The Tufted. But if you’re still in the market for some boho accents or arrangements for your holiday tablescape, take some last minute inspiration from these beautiful bohemian settings: A falling garland with bits of gold and brass, a chic cowhide, and a pristine Mid-Century modern dining set make this arrangement festive, simple, and very vintage eclectic!

With this setting, Justina has introduced unexpected hues and floral … Continue reading 5 Eclectic & Bohemian Holiday Tablescapes

Curated Craigslist: A Deep Blue Ottoman

Inspired by a bold, navy Moroccan-style pouf, this small mix of pieces was meant to be a tad boho (of course) and chic with gold accents and a floral Anthropologie rug (you know I’d be all over this if I had the room!). Oh, and I should mention I’ve seen the adorable little World Market settee in person and had to add it! I hope you enjoy: Craigslist Items: Anthropologie Rug West Elm Side Table Tufted Settee Blue Pouf Ceramic Table Lamp Glass & Gold Coffee Table Continue reading Curated Craigslist: A Deep Blue Ottoman

An Eclectic and Artful Home in the Haight

I met Jamai at the StoreenvyĀ “pop-up” shop in downtown during my search for jobs and creative folks when I first moved to San Francisco. If you’ve ever wandered through the city and noticed a green T-Rex terrorizing the Golden Gate Bridge (on a t-shirt), it’s Jamai’s artwork, sold through his clothing brand Animal Instincts. Jamai recently finished a series of gorgeous wine and coffee painted Victorian homes (seen above resting in the hallway), which I saw in person when I photographed he and his wife Meredith’s place in the Haight. The two (and pooch, Bandit!) live in their own apartment, … Continue reading An Eclectic and Artful Home in the Haight
