My Cottage Boho Living Space So Far



I've been painting all week. The old trunk was in the closet, brown and scarred up. It is now sporting a coat, many coats that is, of white paint.


The shelf on the table with the quilt was red. Now it's a peachy color.



This was my red hutch. It is now a turquoise-y color. I replaced the white knob with a bright pink one.



Can't forget the scruffy boho pupsters. They didn't help much, but they're good for a photo op.







I painted some pots that were sitting out on the patio and added plants. 



Some red stays of course. Can't give up my red. That's the good thing about a "boho" look. All colors and all patterns! 





I purchased the same quilt for my bedroom, and once I've rested some, I'll start in there. That quilt is for the bed. With such a small space, I thought it would look better. And I really love that quilt!

I can't see an ear, nose and throat doctor now till the first week in February. That old being in network thing. My ears are about the same. I'll hear better out of one, then the other. Then both will be stopped up. Weird.

Have fun with a Boho corner in your home. See how you like it. Kind of grows on you, I've found. And anything goes!

Stay tuned...

  5. Looks like a breath of Spring on a Winters Day! I like that you always have a picture of your pups. What would we do without them? We love our little Schnauzer, I always say he was the third child we never had. LOL

  12. I'm impressed with your new BoHo look. The change of colors looks so fresh and pleasing. If I were Charlie and Abi I wouldn't sit still too long though. Hahaha.
    I hope the situation with your ears can be corrected.
    Enjoy the weekend.

  13. I love how you've worked your room around that pretty quilt! I love the trunk painted white too. It's a nice break in the center of the room from the rest of the color. Very pretty!

  16. I love it! Do you spray paint those planters? I just wreck havoc when I paint anything. It is certainly not my calling. It looks so fresh and lively! I love all the plants. I just bought two new ones.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I adore that TRUNK~!!!! it all looks so cheerful and a bit like a world traveler who's gathered items and brought them together to mind them of the places they've been...
    I never could handle much colors but it looks good at your place.

    Great to find you again, my friend.

  20. Oh my goodness, did that brighten up your room! I loved just the quilt and the pillows, but you really have done a super colorful job! Excited to see your bedroom when it's done. Rest this weekend.

  21. I was shocked when I clicked on your blog today. I thought, no, it isn't her living room! You have gone and done it again! I love everything! I hope some magazine picks up your transformation! I know the pupsters love it, too.

  22. Brenda, My mother would say you do not let any grass grow under your feet. You hopped right on that Boho look. It really looks very nice. I love the pots and plants. xoxo,Susie

  23. Oh my it's a whole new look!

    lol YOU ARE AMAZING

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow Brenda! Your space has a fresh new vibe and I think the pupsters love it, too! I love the new paint colors you've chosen for your furniture. Fabulous transformation!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Brenda, I love your new look and the new colors. It's a whole new space! xoox I painted pieces when I downsized too. Whites to grays. Some browns to blue. Painting made things work better in their "new" space.

  26. So great to see such bright, pretty colors, especially at this time of year. Cheerful! Your pupsters are adorable boho-posing.
    The plants in their pretty pots look so pretty with the sun streaming in through the slats in the blinds.

  27. Brenda, you are fearless when it comes to decorating! It looks great! Hope you are feeling better soon.

  28. Hi Brenda! Oh, I'm loving all of your colors. Next thing I know, you'll be sporting scarves around your head and wearing gypsy skirts! :)
    Be a sweetie,

  31. I absolutely love this new look! The colors are fabulous. When you paint furniture in the winter, do you do it indoors...if so, do you put it on a big drop cloth or cardboard or ?? I have furniture I want to paint, but I'm thinking I should wait and do it out in the garage this spring.

  32. Brenda! It looks A-MAZING! I love it! I've got so many neutrals and whites going on over here - which I love, I can't help it. BUT, I also love the boho feel and think you've nailed it. I can't look any more or I might get tempted and I'm too far committed. Ha! Great job! ~julie

  33. When I clicked onto your blog today, I felt immediately attracted to the gorgeous room I saw. Then I started reading and realized it was your room! Good God woman! You've outdone yourself! The room just radiates joy! It's the room of a positive and vibrant person. Congratulations! If some magazine doesn't do an article about it's transformation, they'd be crazy.

  34. Looking cheerful and bright Brenda!

  35. It looks beautiful Brenda! I love boho style and have been incorporating it into my home a little bit at a time too! I am also working on recreating one of my Etsy shops into Little Boho Cottage (my main shop name is Little Vintage Cottage) and I created a facebook page for it too. I think boho is really gaining popularity and I think the shop will do good once I get it all up and looking good!

  38. Looks great. Very cheerful. Can you share the paint colors and brand. You have been busy.
    Have you tried a decongestant. If not I would try one for a couple days. If it doesn't work you will save a step for when you go to the doctor.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I WANT that trunk!! It looks great, and you have been painting up a storm! I love all the colors, especially the peachy shade. I like the plants in the window, too.

    Have you ever been to Thoughts From Alice? She is transitioning to boho, too.

    Happy Weekend

    I especially love it with the colorful pots and plants.
    Good inspiration on a January day.
    Thanks Brenda!

  41. The room looks bright and cheerful, very nice on a wintery day.

  42. Your space is as colorful as a vase of spring flowers. I know the pupsters were excellent moral support and
    supervisors while you painted. I have many of those helpers.

  43. You are my hero. I love how vibrant your spaces are. Everytime I want to make a change I end up overthinging it and dont do it. You make me want to jump up and paint something!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love it all! You're amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Wow, you've been busy! I love everything I see in your little, cozy place. I've lived in small apartments before and am currently getting ready to move again...into another small apartment. Thank you for all your ideas and inspiration. I hope your ear problems can get better very soon, that would be so annoying. Hang in there and hug the pupsters for me (I have a almost 13 yr. old chihuahua who is trying to drive me crazy.)

  46. Brenda this is wonderful! I love it all. The turquoise, the quilt, the foot locker.
    You are amazing how you manage to do this when feeling so under the weather.
    I hope a magazine takes note for you and publishes all your fabulous Boho Chic
    cottage décor. I just adore it all . Well Done. Your Pups are the cutest

  47. Brenda--I've been an admirer of your decorating style since way back in Texas. I, too, must have RED. I'm enjoying your new pops of bright color in your BoHo decor. I sense a change in your energy. A fresh start to the new year, perhaps? The freedom of the smaller boot? The pupsters look healthy and happy.

  48. This looks just beautiful, Brenda! I thought you were sharing a magazine photo! I love the direction you are going with your space!

  49. Looking good, Brenda! Isn't amazing how paint can transform a space? I am all about painted furniture! Blessings, Cecilia

  50. You amaze me with what you have accomplished while feeling so ill! Love everything, especially the blue on the cupboard and the trunk for a coffee table. Can't wait to see what you do next!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Love it all. Very happy and inviting. I, also, love red and I'm glad you are keeping a touch here and there. I agree that the pupsters better nap with one eye open or they may get BoHoed, too.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Brenda! It all looks so great! I love that you've gone boho!

  53. Your little dogs are so cute! Your home looks nice and cozy and colorful!

  60. I've been decorating Boho for many moons. It's nice to know that anything goes! Just think hippie love nest, with touches of Morocco. I do love that quilt. How about some macrame plant hangers in front of the living room window? I'm serious!
