Our second tour examines a home that embraces a diverse range of styles surrounding the neoclassical period, decorated with plenty of modern furniture and accessories throughout. The woodwork concepts are especially interesting – at times imposing, and at other times brightening the room with a light touch. Accessories remain simple, their understated forms brought to life with radiant materials. The entire dining arrangement would fit wonderfully into an art deco home, but they're not specifically neoclassical by any means. The dining chairs take an interesting approach to the neoclassical tradition of fluted-leg chairs, using a cool spiral structure that catches the eye immediately. The modern vases on the shelf are a little more loyal to the theme, given that the entire neoclassical revolution was highly inspired by Greek classical design – they take classic Greek pottery shapes and balance them out with a neoclassical sense of symmetry. The top vase, for instance, could be an interpretation of the olpe while the bottom is more like an amphora.
For a fun and elegant juxtaposition, add a feminine piece such as a drippy, crystal chandelier to an urban industrial space. If a whole room isn't for you try incorporating a few pieces. A reclaimed wood coffee table, or a set of galvanized metal dining chairs can add an element of industrial chic. Where to Shop. Items that fit the industrial chic look can be found all over the place. Secondhand stores and salvage shops can be great, but so can some major retailers. Restoration Hardware, Restoration Hardware is the grand poobah of mass market industrial chic. Practically every piece of their inventory fits the look, so go wild.CB2, At first glance it might not seem so, but the modern sibling of retailer Crate and Barrel is great if you want one or two pieces to get the look of industrial chic. Some of their lighting and accessories in particular suit the look very well. Antique Farmhouse, Almost everything this online retailer has to offer can fit the look of industrial chic – almost. Stay away from anything too cutesy and stick with items that have clean lines. Ballard Designs, Like with CB2, you have to look a little more carefully to find industrial chic items here, but there are definitely some great contenders. Habitat for Humanity Restore, The Restore is great for finding salvaged items like mantels and doors. You never know what you're going to find so check back often.
Bohemian Style Tip: Look to the Lights. Soft lighting creates a special, comforting atmosphere. This is a key element to show your treasures' best face in the space. Lighting options that hover around the sense of serenity provide an excellent contrast to the near-chaos that is everywhere else in your free-spirited Bohemian space. Bohemian Style Tip: Make the Space Your Own. As you've no doubt realized by now, the individual is what makes Boho-Chic such an inviting and interesting style choice. You don't need to change your own style or life in any way to adopt a sense of the Bohemian in your space. Be creative in the use of your furniture, bring in rich, vivid colors of any hue, and go bold with any patterns you happen to love. Throw in photos of your family or favorite vacation spots. You don't need to edit your life or loves in a Bohemian space – the style itself embraces it all. Lastly, if you're going to remember any rule about Bohemian style, remember this: That there are no rules. You can certainly dabble in the Boheme style but then veer off in ways that make you happy.
