California Style

Since last Friday's announcement of our upcoming move to California, I've been experiencing relief.  Knowing that our friends and family are now aware of the big changes ahead for us, I feel like I can begin 'California dreaming' (aka decorating).  I so love our current home but I'm excited about creating another look and feel for our new abode.  Not yet having bought a house on the west coast keeps the concepts very broad,  but I would love for it to be a mix of midcentury glamour and ethnic touches.  Call it bohemian chic.   Layered rugs, comfortable and eclectic furniture, gold accents and one of these for sure.

 The chairs I recently spied at Reside [see below] would fit the look perfectly.  I'm seriously considering buying them for the house we don't own yet.  What do you think?


 I received so many wonderful comments about our move.  Thank you all for  your well wishes and sharing in our excitement of it!
