Get the Look: Laid Back Beachy Boho Bedroom

 Get that casual, beachy boho vibe in your bedroom! Find out more in this blog post and see Mix & Match Design Company's take on this light and airy bedroom style.

Maybe it's the fact that summer is upon us, or that I'm dreaming of our upcoming Bermuda beach vacation, but I'm excited to bring the Get the Look series back this week with a laid back, beachy vibe! I had a blast putting together this light and airy bedroom that's one part coastal and one part boho (and a touch of mid-century - I can't seem to stay away from that style!). These two styles work so nicely together - they're all about adding texture and natural elements, which I love. The colors are soft in this particular rendition as well, but don't lean too far into pastel territory. 

Take a look at the images that inspired the look for this week below:

I'd happily move right into any of those bedrooms! The common elements I noticed were that they all had lots of white (white walls and white duvet covers, for example), texture, and layered textiles. It feels like they brought a little bit of the outside in with plants and natural wood. It still feels clean and modern though - it's not overtly coastal themed, if you know what I mean. 

So the bedroom look I put together combined all of those elements into a cozy, textured space with a relaxed vibe. I'm loving this look so much - who's ready for me to bring this look to life in their home? I'm out of bedrooms in my house! :)

How To Launch An E-Design Business | Announcements & Updates!

Hey e-designer friends (or those of you who are thinking about diving into that world 😉), today's post is for YOU! I've got some exciting things going on in the Mix & Match Education world and wanted to share all the good stuff right here on the blog so it would be all in one place. If you're not in the design world, feel free to skip this post - we'll be back to our regular content on Friday!

First of all, my online course, How To Launch An E-Design Businessreopens for enrollment on June 4th (next Monday)!

When it opened for the first time back in February, I had a wonderful group of students join in and I'm so excited for this next one! I only open this course a few times a year, so if you're interested in starting your own online interior design business, this might be the perfect time for you to check it out and sign up. 

Now you may be asking, what is this course all about?

Well, here's the quick rundown: How To Launch An E-Design Business will teach you about the world of e-design, help you figure out your business model, talk about how to get clients in the door, walk you step-by-step through an e-design project, and give you the tools you need to carry out client projects and run your business smoothly and efficiently. It's a quick-start guide to getting your business up and running!

The course is self-paced, so once you sign up, it's yours to complete on your own timeframe. There are pre-recorded videos to watch, a workbook to go through, a resource guide that includes links to my favorite tools and sites, and a whole lot of extra goodies. I even have a bonus video for you that teaches the basics of how to make a design board in Photoshop.

 

If listening is more your style, you can hear more about the course and the e-design world in general on A Well Designed Business podcast. I had a chance to chat with LuAnn Nigara on her show last week and there's a ton of info on there. It's a great introduction to the course! Catch the episode by listening below, or you can also find it on your favorite podcasting app. 

Finally, I want to invite you to tune into a FREE webinar I'm co-hosting with Sheilah MacSporran, the CEO of DesignFiles*, this Thursday!

We'll be going into detail on the four major backend areas you need to focus on to set your online interior design business up for long-term success. If you could use some pointers on getting your business set up and ready to receive clients, then you'll definitely want to tune in. I'll be covering some key elements in four major areas: administration, business strategy, operations, and marketing. I can't wait to chat!  

Here are the details for the webinar:

If you have any questions about the course or the webinar, feel free to shoot me a note! I'd be happy to answer them!

12 Of My Favorite Beautiful Removable Wallpapers

 Have you ever tried temporary wallpaper in your home? There are so many good options out there now, and they give you a chance to add some serious fun and pattern to a room without the full commitment of permanent wallpaper. Come see my list of favorites (including this pretty blue green floral) over on the blog.

"Deep Greens" Wallpaper by Sweet Pea Wall Design* in my Guest Room

Removable wallpaper is something I've had on the top of my mind lately since I just installed a whole wall's worth in our guest room for the One Room Challenge. Every time I walk past it and catch a glimpse of that pretty blue green floral, I'm reminded of how much of an impact it made on that space.

Wallpaper can be a total game-changer, but I know that it can be scary to commit to - especially if you have memories of some of the really terrible wallpapers of ages past or if you've ever had to remove some particularly difficult paper. And, if you're not up for installing the paste version yourself (which, let's be honest, I don't think many of us are!), you also have to find and hire someone to put it up for you, which can be pricey. 

Well, there's good news for those of us who want to bring wallpaper into our homes, but in a low-commitment sort of way - enter removable wallpaper! This peel-and-stick version can be easily removed, but you don't have to think of it as temporary. These wallpapers act just like their regular paste cousins, but you have the option to remove it easily without worrying about damaging your walls. This is perfect for renters or for folks who want to take a risk with a wild pattern - there's no pressure to choose a wallpaper that you're going to be happy with forever. If you decide to change it up in a few years, no worries! 

The other nice part about this wallpaper is that pretty much anybody can install it. It just takes a little bit of patience and a precise eye. After having the experience of installing it myself (I did the whole wall behind our guest bedroom in an afternoon), I will say that it would probably have been helpful to have a second set of hands around, but you can do it by yourself. 

Now that I have one wallpapered wall in my house, I'm starting to think about other spots where I could add a little pop of pattern or color. I've got one place in mind that would be perfect for it. Maybe once I have a little more time over the summer, I'll do it and share the results! 

There are SO many good patterns out there right now and the selection is seemingly endless. That definitely wasn't the case just a few years ago - I feel like temporary wallpaper has come a long way and is now available from a lot of retailers. Etsy* has a ton of options, and even places like West Elm and Urban Outfitters are carrying some now.

Since there are a bunch of options out there, I decided to round up twelve of my favorites to share with y'all today to make your search a little less daunting! Maybe some of you are contemplating putting some up in your own homes, and I hope these will inspire you and point you toward the perfect pattern. If you do install some, send me a picture! I'd love to see.

Twelve of My Favorite Beautiful Removable Wallpapers

 Looking to add some removable wallpaper to your home? Look no further! I've got twelve awesome ones to choose from on the blog. Temporary wallpaper is perfect for renters or for those of us who want to try something without a high commitment.
