this is the lush and tranquil home of teddy Iborra Wicksteed, a barcelona born and raised graphic designer and photographer with a great eye for style. recently featured on one of my favorite blogs for unique and interesting home tours, freunde von freunden once again does not disappoint. nor does this beautiful home — with its beautiful built-in bookcases (i’m always a sucker for a good bookcase) and spare but stylish design. for the full home tour and interview, visit freunde von freunden.
we’re currently soaking up all the design inspiration we can hold from the apartment denmark and its one of a kind shop-able instillations. these babies teach us it’s good to break the rules, to go for unsuspected color palettes, and more than anything — to collect one-off pieces that will forever change the game. they’ve mastered the skill of turning a space from a room, into an art piece. for continuous awe-inspiring ideas, bookmark their very beautiful website.

i always think of the boho bedroom as a representation of a life well lived — flea market finds, personal artifacts from your favorite travels, all nestled together with some modern pieces to perfect the balance. it’s a healthy mix of texture and just the right amount of vibrant colors. this look is easier achieved than one might think — because you don’t have to run off to morocco to find the perfect woven baskets and textiles, there are always plenty of local resources to get you started. some of my go-to’s include anthropologie, urban outfitters for furniture, great rugs can be found at the pink rug co. on etsy, and always hunt your local flea market for all those unique one of a kind treasures.
monday morning greetings everyone. i’ve had a very busy few weeks, so i’m off to the desert for some much-needed rest & relaxation. i just need to lay poolside with a good book, and perhaps a couple of trashy magazines and an afternoon cocktail and zone the heck out. it’s going to be toasty hot there — most likely in the 90’s, but i’m okay with that — nothing a cannonball into the deep end of the pool can’t solve. have you been to palm springs before? any vintage shops or cute cafes you might like to recommend? do tell, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow after receiving the restorative powers of the desert sun. cheers!
