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.

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

A Magical Attic Apartment with a "Genie Bottle Bedroom" — House Tour

Name: Terra Zosel
Location: Kenwood Neighborhood, Minneapolis, Minnesota
Size: 800 square feet
Years lived in: Rented 6 months

The story of Terra’s apartment is multi-fold. Her home occupies the attic of her grandparents’ house where she lives as caretaker to her grandmother. Her grandparents purchased the home in the 1960s from a couple who relocated from Minneapolis to the significantly warmer state of Florida. Little information is known about those earlier owners or what the “genie bottle” room was used for, but Terra does know that it remained largely untouched from how the former resident — an artist — left it.

21 of the Most Beautiful Bohemian Style Home Designs

You can find definitions of Bohemian style decor online. They’re described as spaces filled with lots of plants, colors, patterns, rattan, and stuff. You can even take online quizzes to see if “Bohemian” style is for you. But while all of these adjectives are technically true, boho decor has always been a “I know it when I see it” sort of style for me. While “boho” can certainly refer to a set of design elements mixed together, to me, it’s much more of a description of the energy that a space can exude.
