Confession: When I first visited London in my twenties, on my own and headed for art school, I fell madly in love. Since then, I’ve visited England every chance I get. I had never made it north to Scotland though, until last year when Mr. H and I decided to spend New Year’s Eve there. […]

Let’s get real for a minute…When we’re drawn to luxe bohemian interior design—especially when it involves fabric by the yard — there are two things that are important to us: whether it’s got a consciously non-coherent, mismatched look, and whether it gives us those intangible, feel-good boho vibes.
