project diaries: get the look of a bohemian home office

for today’s “get the look” feature, we revisit a home office in the hollywod hills from one of our long time clients for whom we’ve completed many projects for in the past.

here we combined bohemian and feminine accents that gave this space a lot of character. our kpi team used eclectic pieces and layered in different patterns, from the wallpaper to the pillows, accessories and artwork, to create a remix of unique custom elements and flea market treasures that gave our client a charming workspace from which to grow her home business.

below we’ve shared exact product or suggestions from the rummage shop to help you recreate some of the vibe of this home office! to find out more about this room, see kishani‘s book vintage remix, which gives you more insight not only into this room, but other spaces that she designed in this gorgeous home.

project diaries: get the look from molly sims’ home featured in lonny

in this installment of the project diaries, we take a look back at molly sims‘ home which made the march cover of lonny! such a fun project for the kpi team to work on! if you haven’t viewed the story online, be sure to visit the magazine’s website for many exclusive pics here to get a complete view of what kishani designed for molly and her growing family. if you loved the feature, guess what? you can actually buy many of the exact or similar pieces from rummage directly! some require a bit of lead time, so always consult with our shop directly to get exact information for the item that you are choosing! hope you enjoy these pieces as much as we love them having them in our inventory!

molly sims and kishani perera via kishani perea blog

molly and kishani have worked together on several homes, but this one was particularly special because it is the home that molly is raising her family.

blue and green drip glaze lamp via kishani perera inc.

saturated colors from the accessories, lighting and wall art make the living room really pop against the neutrals! this mid-century blue and green drip glaze lamp is very similar in shape to the one in the living room. if you love the style, you have to view our wonderful inventory of additional drip glaze items here!

 bristol side table via kishani perera inc.

isn’t this a beauty? we love the bristol side table designed by kishani for molly’s living room! it is made of wood with an antiqued mirror top. the great thing about this piece is that we can make it custom in size and with different finishes if you have a specific design need!

mud-cloth textiles via kishani perera inc.

tie dyed textiles are so popular right now! we love the options kishani used throughout molly’s home, but these mud-cloth textiles in yellow, orange, green and purple are equally perfect for injecting your home with color this spring! if these textiles speak to your design sensibilities, we can create custom pillows using one or more of these options!

cadogan coffee table via via kishani perera inc.

if you did a double take when you saw the cadogan coffee table in molly’s living room, we don’t blame you! another of our favorite pieces designed by kishani herself! we particularly love the bulb turned legs! such a handsome piece for any home!

derby poufs by kishani perera inc.

two items not shown in the living room photos of molly’s home, but we would be remiss not to mention are these gorgeous derby poufs! the nailhead trim details that kishani added to the overall design are so striking! we can easily custom design these in other sizes and fabrics too!

albin mobile in earth tones via kishani perera inc.

every baby needs a mobile over their bed! the handpainted neon one in little brooks’ room was so unique and artistic that kishani made sure to design another with earth tones. and yup, you guessed it…custom orders are available in either color wave through our shop!

thanks for reading our “get the look” feature into molly sims’ home! what’s your favorite piece designed by kishani? let us know in the comments!

hot off the press: hgtv magazine

we are so excited! just in time for spring, hgtv magazine shared a beautiful outdoor space designed by kp and provided a ‘get the look’ guide! this outdoor space epitomizes the timeless use of black and white with a pop of color, which also works so well with the dramatic black trim and white stucco of the home itself. the classic black and white also provides a perfect backdrop for changing out the pillows for a new season, or new trending color, for an updated look without needing to change the entire set of cushions. we are so honored that they selected this outdoor space to inspire you all for a new spring look! we love this space, and think this guide is a great and affordable way to get this look. thank you again to hgtv for sharing kp’s design!
