I have literally thousands of interiors that inspire me cataloged on my Pinterest boards and love the idea of sitting down to decorate a new space with these images in my arsenal. Recreating the feel of the spaces I love with similar pieces in a totally different city or at a completely different price point is such a fun challenge and one that I’d like to showcase more of on the blog. When I stumbled upon this colorful Melbourne apartment, it felt like the perfect way to kick off a new series!


Isn’t it stunning? I love the subtle bohemian feel and the thoughtful use of color in the accessories. Here’s how I’d replicate the same vibe:

design darling e-decorating

chandelier  //  pineapple print  //  abstract print  //  surf print  //  hot pink lamp  //  side table  //  tufted sofa

ikat throw pillows  //  tassel pillow  //  fiddle leaf fig tree  //  ikat floor pillows  //  navy Moroccan rug

How’d I do? Are you interested in seeing more posts like this one? Could you live in the space above? Let’s hear it!

  1. Love this post and would love to see more! I’m always looking for ways to replicate spaces I see on Pinterest or in mags, and you’ve taken the guess work out with inspired items. Wouldn’t mind posting up in this happy, vibrant space either…

  2. I love the inspiration picture and this is a fun series!! I would love to see a couple of these every month 🙂
    Stay warm and dry in this snow storm!

  3. i LOVE this type of content; “shopping the look” of a gorgeous, inspiring space (way more so than an outfit) is my weakness. i can’t wait to see what else you recreate.

  4. I love it! And I’d love to see my posts like this, or even posts where you show how to get certain vibes at different price points/life points (like for the college student, post-grad, etc.).
