Tents and Tipis-The Ultimate Boho-Chic Accessory

I was flipping through Gypset the other night, and came to the conclusion that in order to be considered a true poster girl for the bohemian, casual, luxe lifestyle-one must own a tent or tipi (and owning a home in a far away locale doesn’t  hurt either). Check out these examples.

So if you are in the market for your own Tipi, Tent or Yurt check out Heathworks or if you don’t have the extra space, there is always glamping:

Boho-Chic Outdoor Spaces

I’m hoping the sun will stay awhile here in LA and that it will really start feeling like Spring. I would love to spend a sunny afternoon lounging at one of these ridiculously cool boho-chic spaces. Pools, beaches, or fire places-any will do-just need a stack of magazines, a bikini, my Missoni towel and I’d be good for hours.

Gypset Style-Boho Chic

Lately, I have been inspired greatly by the gypset lifestyle. If you are not familiar with it, read my post here on the 2009 publication by Julia Chaplin and also read my post on Boho Chic. I went through my inspiration file and picked out a few rooms that capture the essence of this boho chic look I can’t seem to shake. What they all seem to have in common are an effortless, lived in look heavy on ethnic prints and treasures collected from around the world. Many of the rooms also have modern touches that keep the rooms from looking like a Moroccan or Turkish bazaar.

As I was researching this post, I figured out that Commune Design did both the Ace Hotel and the bottom picture. I’ve decided they are my new favorite LA based designers. Their aesthetic is so inspiring to me. Please check out their website.

I’m heading down to Sayulita, Mexico for a friend’s wedding this weekend. It is a small, bohemian fishing/surfing village about an hour North of Puerto Vallarta. I am so excited to eat fish tacos from a street stand and shop at Pachamama, a small boutique owned by gypsy, bohemian sisters-Nathalie and Sophie Mignot.  I first read about them in Gypset-one of my favorite new coffee table books. I am hoping to come home with one of their Tahitian Pearl Necklaces.

Stylish Reading: Gypset

I am highly anticipating the release of the new Assouline Book, Gypset, by freelance journalist, Julia Chaplin. In Julia’s words “Gypset (Gypsy+jet set) is about an emerging group of artists, musicians, fashion designers, surfers, and bon vivants– who lead semi-nomadic, unconventional lives. The book features photo portraits of the Gypsetters, their self-designed homes in far flung bohemian enclaves, and a written profile.” Some Gypsetters featured are Damien Hirst, Jade Jagger, Alice Temperley, and more.

Her ideas nicely compliment my current obsession with everything and all boho chic. Julia is beginning her book tour and it is slated for release in May.
