Bohemian + Scandinavian

This beautiful home appeared on my blog feed a few days ago, and I can't stop thinking about it. It's the perfect mix of my favorite styles.

Here's my problem: a look at my Pinterest boards would tell you that I am a minimalist who likes all white rooms and sparse decor. But a walk through my apartment would tell you that I like books and records and art and textiles and wood furniture and the cozy comfort of a more free-spirited, bohemian style. How can I reconcile these two tastes and stop feeling like a giant fraud?

This Swedish home is the answer.


I was talking to my mom last night on Google Hangout, and she reminded me how behind I am on posting pictures on this blog. Because, while there are lots of reasons I blog, one of the main ones is so my mom can see what I'm up to.  So let's catch up!

A New Collection in the Etsy Shop!

Hi, blog friends!

Today I'm excited to share that I have some new goods in the shop, and I think they're pretty neat. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed lots of rope sitting around and being knotted. That's because I decided to go with rope and knots this time around to create a collection of macrame wall hangings to list in my Etsy shop, Viola Maye. These pieces are a big larger than my previous fiber art, and they feature some lovely driftwood I've found along the Puget Sound. Here are a few of my favorites:


As is tradition, I was sick today on my birthday and in the days leading up to it. I refuse to get a flu shot because I hate needles, so every year (nearly always on my January birthday) I get very sick.

On Friday, I stayed home from work because I had a 102 degree temperature, aches, chills, the works. On Saturday, I laid in bed and accepted that death was near. But by God, on Sunday I dragged myself out of bed and up to the top of the Space Needle for Fun Times because it was my birthday.

Thanks for taking care of me, Rand.
