Tjoohoo! It’s a hive of activity at home today as we’re getting ready for our summer holiday – eeeeee! I find it hard to feel super excited until I’m actually on route these days though (there’s so much to do!). Do you find that?! Anyway, since I’ll be taking a two week blogging break (shock horror! – that sounds like ages and I’m going to miss you guys, but I’ve been working like crazy with photo shoots and finishing my third book (exciting!) so I’m in need of a little R&R, plus I think my family have forgotten who I am!). But before I head off, I thought I’d leave with you the most inspiring home – with LOTS of ideas around every corner! This lovely space belongs to Megan Schlachtenhaufen, purveyor of fab, custom made wall hangings (hop on over to Instagram to check them out). Megan shares her home in Wisconsen, with her husband and two daughters and has furnished it with an eclectic mix of furniture, layers of texture, lovely art and punches of colour resulting in a relaxed modern bohemian style. Let’s take a peek….

Oh how I love this home. It makes me want to go out and hunt for paintings for my wall, rummage around flea markets for secondhand finds, invest in some kilim cushions and Moroccan blankets and generally max out on cosiness  – how about you?!

Get the look from Megan’s home: bertoia side chair, source beautiful kilim cushions here, pick up a blanket with pom poms / tassels here, leather pouf / ottoman, mantis ceiling light, this is a great shop for rugs. Baskets, Atollo gold table lamp. Pick up custom-made wall hangings by Megan here. The large wall hanging in the living room is by The Dharma Door.

You can also see more pictures of this home and an interview with Megan over at The Glitter Guide

If you need a little escape on your morning coffee break, here are some of my all time favourite archives for you to check-out while I’m away (although you might need to set-aside an entire morning or two!):

A round-up of Swedish homes
Inspiring Danish homes
My pick of Norwegian homes
Who doesn’t love a Finnish home?! 
Relaxed and laidback summer cottages

Beautiful, relaxed bohemian style homes.

Or if you’d like to go offline – there’s always my book The Scandinavian Home: Interiors inspired by light too! Best enjoyed with a coffee….or espresso martini (depending on the time of day!). I hope you enjoy it!

Have a lovely couple of weeks!

PS Catch you on Instagram in the meantime…
