Mixing Things Up & A Writing Course

So you know I've been bitten by the "Boho bug."

I've gathered ten photos. Five are from BH&G and are a current day blogger's home. Five are from a post on Boho style at Design Sponge.

Let's have a little quiz. See if you can pick which are which. Which photo is from BH&G, and which photo is from Design Sponge?

And after you're looked at photos 1-10 and written down your answer, then go look at the source underneath each photo for the answer. 

I think you'll see what I see: that the two styles overlap. Which makes me very happy. 

Because I don't want to do away with the look I have. I just want to add to it.

And subtract from it...

And blend the two.

Into my own unique statement.

A plan has begun to formulate in my mind. I can begin to envision what look I want. It won't be totally one style. It will be a combination of three or four. 

And in many ways, I'll recycle what I already have.

I'm kind of excited to start the new year and see what happens!

(The BH&G photos are from the Vintage Revivals blog.)
(The others are from Design Sponge)

Another thing I want to mention is that my creative writing course is now open for signing up. It is a course you can do at your own pace, whenever and however you choose. You can check it out here. And I also have it on my sidebar.


  1. Yipee, I so excited I'm signing up for your writing course. And now I know what to use for my course!

  2. I think the best way to describe the Boho look is eclectically casual. You are so talented that I think you can easily achieve the look you're envisioning. I can't wait to see how you do it!

  3. I will be watching to see what you do Brenda..

  4. I cannot tell which is which. But I do know what I love in each photo: 1. The orange couch 2. Blue file Cabinet 3. Plants 4. Brown stool 5. Bug photos 6. Headboard 7. Succulents 8. Map.
    I cannot wait to see what you come up with.

  5. I have always believed in eclectic spaces. They definitely reflect your personal style. I am really looking forward to seeing the changes you make, my friend. xo Laura

  6. if you do it, then I have no doubt it will look great.

  7. I flunked the test big time! LOL

    I hope you had a Merry Christmas, Brenda!

    Ours was very quiet and restful. Just what the doctor ordered.

  8. I missed 3 out of 10... -- I like the Boho style. I've often thought I was an eclectic person living in a farmhouse/cottage. I could live in a loft apartment with plants on every window sill or I could live in the middle of acreage and have swag lamps hanging in my living room! Either way, ... I think I'm slightly bohemian in my decor style. I've just never called it that. ;)

    your changes and blending will look good no matter what you do with it!

  9. The boho bug bit me too. There's something so comfortable about it. It will be fun to see how you incorporate it into your home!

  10. As you know, Boho with a French Twist as I like to call it, has been my style for a long time. I have a warning for you, though -- once you start this there is no going back! LOL I am already plotting a few changes here and there myself. It will be fun to see what you do!

  11. Hi Brenda! I just signed up for your course! Already my fingers are twitching and I cannot wait to get started! Thank you for offering it! It is my Christmas present to myself! hugs! Nanny

  12. The blue couch reminds me a of a sofa my sweet Nanny had -the most comfy thing !! Wish we still had that thing!


I always enjoy reading your comments and having you join the conversation here at Cozy Little House. It is like having a gathering of friends sitting in my cozy apartment. Enjoying coffee and dessert, chatting and having a good time.

Please be kind with your comments. We all need kindness in this world. That's not to say you can't state your opinion! Everyone should be able to state their own opinion in a kind and thoughtful manner.

I appreciate each and every one of you!
