The dynamic duo behind Mavis the Airstream sold this first home—a 1975 Airstream Overlander—last spring, and are currently renovating a 1977 Airstream Sovereign they are calling “Mavis 2.0.” (The original Mavis went to a good home, don’t worry.)

This Afro-Bohemian Loft Is an Energetic Explosion of Color — House Tour

Name: Cherub Stewart of Florida Water Interiors and her daughter
Location: The Lincoln Park District — Newark, New Jersey
Size: 1,200 square feet
Years lived in: 1 year, renting

It hasn’t even been a year in my magical loft, yet it feels like so much time has passed. Time certainly flies when you are blissed out. I happened upon this restored garage space on Zillow, of all places, at a difficult time in my life where my little one was only 9 months old and her father and I decided to live in different homes. We are great, absolutely dear friends and parted amicably, yet it was challenging moving with a baby, and I was not ready to live alone with child. I truly wanted a place that felt, warm, welcoming, had lots of character and space for a growing child, was safe, yet would accommodate my budget!

A Florida Rental House Is "Bohemian Vintage Swamp Chic" — House Tour

Name: Kaitlyn McGowan and Evan Walker
Location: Downtown Gainesville, Florida
Size: 1,400 square feet
Years Lived In: 16 months, renting

Our home is a 1930s-ish converted duplex that I share with my partner of four years, Evan, and our cat, Rasputin, or Poots as we call him. Located downtown in a college town, our place has seen some interesting, fun, and scary renters. Two years before we rented it, we toured it, and the house was filled with graffiti scribbled on the walls, knocked-out windows, and multiple five-gallon bongs in the living room. This got us some refinished floors and much needed updates, so that worked out nicely for us.

8 Bohemian Rooms That Mix Patterns the Right Way

Pattern mixing is tricky when it comes to an outfit, let alone a home. You have to understand color, scale, and texture to really make it work. Most designers will tell you to start small with printed accents like pillows and table linens and then work your way up to larger pieces of furniture and rugs. And definitely keep some neutrals in the mix, so it doesn’t feel like you’re living in some psychedelic pattern on pattern on pattern place—unless that’s the look you are going for.

There’s something delightfully bohemian about a room filled with multiple patterns all working together to create a cohesive look. And one thing’s for sure: There are many house tours on this site where the homeowners or renters have a solid pattern game going on. The best way to master the mix is to learn from those who came before you. So let’s go to pattern school.

Location: Seabright — Santa Cruz, California
Size: 900 square feet
Years lived in: 3 years, renting

I currently live in a two-bedroom apartment in the Seabright neighborhood of Santa Cruz.
