A Relaxed, Bohemian Orange County Home Full of Plants!



First a TV – now a loo. Whatever next?! Hahaha! Can you tell I’m making an effort to keep things real here on My Scandinavian Home lately? Plus, the ‘powder room’ in this house is so pretty, I couldn’t resist sharing it (after all, we all have one and in need of a little inspiration from time to time, right?)! There is off course WAAAY more about the lovely home of Katie and Tyler Branch (AKA @branchabode) to feel inspired by too. Photographers by trade, the pair live with their young family in a craftsman-built house in Orange County, California dating back to 1909.  The house has been decorated with a wonderful blend of traditional, mid-century and industrial pieces in white, brown, black as well as plenty of lush greenery at every turn. Enjoy the tour! 
Katie and Tyler prefer to invest in classic pieces that stand the test of time. In the dining room mid-century dining chairs circle a round dining table* – and traditional cabinets can be seen in the background. 
Coffee table from West Elm, Pom pom blanket*, Tisca make a similar rug
A little nook by the window makes a perfect spot for a small home office and home for several plants!

After a lot of hard graft (including ripping out an ancient wall-to-wall carpet) the master bedroom has become Katie’s  favourite room in the house. I think I can see why, can you?!

When I came to this picture in the @Branchabode instagram feed, it stopped me in my tracks. If I ever get the opportunity to re-do my bathroom, I’d like it to look a lot like this. Do you feel drawn to this style too?
Ceramic tiles from Daltile, plant stand from Urban Outfitters (FYI – they have the most amazing array of planters right now – check them all out here), this Hammam towel* is similar. 
Shower head from Rubinet Faucet Company, Tiles from Daltile (as before)
I wasn’t kidding about the loo – and what a pretty little space it is too, don’t you think?
The family dine al fresco in the shade of the house under some colourful hanging baskets. The pretty outdoor dining set is from West Elm. 
I love it when I get loads of ideas from a home tour – and today I’m feeling full of inspiration from this abode! I hope you got lots of ideas too! 
Is there anything that stood out to you in particular?
If you’d like to see a few more corners of this home, it’s well worth hopping over to @branchabode. You can also check out Katie and Tyler’s photography here and here
Just in case you’d like to extend your morning / afternoon coffee break, here are some other beauties from California: 
You might also like to check out the ultimate guide to hanging plants and how to work with indoor climbers.  
Have a wonderful day!
