Silverlake Modern Bohemian Living Room

A modern Bohemian living room in Silverlake, Los Angeles | Interior design by Lesley Myrick Art + Design in Waco, TX

“Bohemian” isn’t typically a word I gravitate to in the interior design sense. Full-on Bohemian-style rooms tend to be a little too earthy-crunchy for my taste. But blend some Boho elements with a dreamy tailored cognac leather sofa, an Art Deco-inspired accent chair, and a vintage sunburst mirror and now we’re in my happy place.

My client’s sleek and modern living room in the Silverlake neighborhood of Los Angeles needed some warm eclectic touches to contrast with its cool design lines. I’m in heaven when a home’s architecture has a clear point of view – whether it’s Victorian, Mid-Century Modern, or Contemporary – because a home with a strong personality is a great starting point for introducing a rad mix of aesthetic styles.

Modern homes don’t need to be filled with modern furniture. Mid-Century homes can’t only handle MCM furnishings. A little mixing, matching, and layering of great foundation pieces with awesome accents goes a long way to create a space that’s livable, delightful, and unexpected. The key is to know how to mix design styles, colors, patterns, and textures.

Also: I’m like a kid at Christmas when I create a moodboard for a client. I just want to see the space come together in real life already! #thestruggleisreal
