New York Times Bestseller

In The New Bohemians , LA-based designer Justina Blakeney defines the New Bohemians as creative individuals who are boutique owners and bloggers, entrepreneurs and ex-pats, artists and urban farmers. They embrace free-spirited, no-rules lifestyles and apply that attitude to all areas of their existence, including their homes. With little distinction between work and play, the new boho home often includes an office, art gallery, showroom, photography studio, restaurant, or even a pop-up shop. The New Bohemians explores 20 homes located primarily on the East and West coasts. Exclusive interviews with the owners, 12 DIY projects created by Blakeney and inspired by objects found in the homes, and a "Plant-O-Pedia" offer insight into achieving this aesthetic. In addition, each home is accompanied by an Adopt-an-Idea section that offers general decor, styling, and shopping tips for easy duplication in your own home.

Precious people (Emily is a macramé specialist while Adam is a metaphysical real estate dabbler) try to convince themselves that they haul stuff into their homes better than everyone else. Did you know that when you leave your home, you can buy things, bring them home and then decorate with them? Game changer.

This booked cause a revelation for me. I always thought I collected junk, old junk, cheap junk, junk that only a certain type of person could love, junk that needed repair, or "up cycling". Well now I realize it's not junk. It's bohemian.

If you're looking for bold, loud boho, this book is NOT it. Very pretty pictures, but could be any house in any home magazine on the rack.

This is a lovely book featuring lovely homes that look like people actually live in them. Impossibly cool people but living people nonetheless. Enjoyable until I became transfixed by the spirit animal aspect of things. Not to mention the spirit plant. Then the names they had chosen for their children. Then statements like "Sacha's closet is like a hip boutique in Paris, only nothing is for sale and everything is a size 2." And the room where several dream catchers hang above the bed. "Her mother made her favorite one using hair from her favorite childhood horse, Silver, a purebred Arabian". Of course it was. Look at the pictures. Stay away from the captions.
