New Bohemians by Justina Blakeney
Give the gift of inspiration! In The New Bohemians, LA-based designer Justina Blakeney defines the New Bohemians as creative individuals who are boutique owners and bloggers, entrepreneurs and expats, 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 (including Emily Katz and her husband!), 12 DIY projects created by Blakeney and inspired by objects found in the homes, and a "Plant-O-Pedia" all 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.
Treat that special someone to a bit of unbridled joy! All you need is this pompom maker + a little bit of cord or yarn. This whimsical, cookie shaped craft tool is thoughtfully made and easy to use. Made of solid beech wood, it’s as durable as it is adorable.
