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.
