BoHome: A Gypsy’s Apartment
Autumn afternoons are best spent tucked away in bed and Tree babe Billie Edwards has created the perfect gypsy getaway to do just that. Here, she gives us a look through her Byron sanctuary and shares her top three Bo-Home tips.
#1: You can never have too many plants, pillows or books.
Plants are magical little creatures. They have the ability to produce oxygen, purify air, look charming, add colour/texture into every room and hide ugly power plugs. If you’re a nervous beginner in the plant world – try adopting some monsteras, calatheas, peace lilies, fiddle leaf figs and creepy crawly vines. I also have a mugwort plant next to my bed, it helps add some serious colour in my dreams (and it also helps sort out any women fertility problems)!
As for pillows – they are both aesthetically pleasing and comfortable, so no more justification is needed here. And books. Well, they teach you things and impress your guests.
#2: More is more! But think about a colour palette.
Personally, I like to embrace clashing pattern designs and textures but I’m a big believer in some sort of colour consistency. I like to keep my base furniture neutral (you can’t go wrong with white walls and timber/cane furnishings) – and add the rainbow through precious textiles.
I’m a warm and earthy colour lover – so my palette tends to favour reds, yellows, oranges, creams, browns and just a hint of deep purple.
#3: Pay attention to lighting and windows.
I tend to revolve my rooms around the positioning of windows. Maybe it’s just me, but nothing is better than lying in bed beneath a window. And if you need some darkness to sleep at night, that’s a pretty great excuse to tie up an Indian sarong. Add wind chimes and incense for extra relaxation.
