the new bohemians + a giveaway

It’s about time: The New Bohemians, my most anticipated book of 2015, is here and I’ve got loads to share with you about it (and details about a giveaway).

First of all, HOLY EYE CANDY. Justina and photographer Dabito really hit it out of the park with this one. This is one of those design books where you discover something new every time you open it. And it’s not just going to sit on my coffee table and collect dust — no, I feel like I’ll be referring to The New Bohemians for years to come for inspiration, both personally and professionally. The design of the book is gorgeous, too, with painterly end pages and a striking design on the spine of the book. You can definitely display this book with pride.

Second, Justina has made it incredibly easy for readers to pull inspiration from the book and translate it into their own home. As I settle more and more into my new loft, I am constantly referring to the book for inspiration, especially the Modern Bohemians section. I think of all the chapters in the book, this is the one that speaks to me the most.

And there are so many ideas to steal for my own home. Some of my favorites…

The simplicity of all-white bedding + sun bleached global patterns… or maybe all white bedding popped with intricately appliquéd fabric sourced from travels abroad.

There are also loads of ideas when it comes to living in a small space or loft-type space, like I do. See that pieced together milk crate bookshelf? I’m thinking of stealing that idea for sure.

To say I’ve been pouring over this book would be an understatement.

Third… a giveaway! Justina was kind enough to offer one copy of her amazing book to a very lucky Jojotastic reader! It’s easy to enter: follow both Justina Blakeney and Jojotastic on Instagram. Then leave a comment here saying you did so (please note: comments left elsewhere won’t count, so please be sure to leave your comment below!). One winner will be chosen at random by Tuesday May 5 at 10:30 am PST. Open to US residents only. Winner will receive 1 book, valued at $27. Good luck!

Noodle is definitely pulling for you to win.

    Following you both! Oh my goodness, this book looks gorgeous! I’m attempting to give our rental apartment (and my currently uninspiring home studio) an overhaul, but it’s discouraging when there’s nothing I can do about the rental carpet in every room or the dark and worn wood trim. I’m already planning to paint the walls with a fresh coat of white, but this book would certainly help inspire me in choosing new decor to introduce life into an otherwise character-less duplex.

    The bathroom in this post is amazing. I can’t stop looking at it. Our bathroom is my least favorite room, and I just want to crawl into this image and stay there.
