My latest collage on Polyvore is a simple, understated bohemian look I titled Ice.
I can see myself curled up and cozy in this tattered snowflake sweater, offset by the color of my well-worn jeans, the infinity scarf hanging loosely off of one shoulder, the metal finger cuffs cool against my warm skin.
Partially for the color choice and partially for the flowing softness that all of the elements presented.
I had a lot of fun finding and mixing these images. The colors and textures soothe me. I like how the lacy dress is really more of a background element, but how everything matches its understated elegance.
Okay, the owl is actually a doorstop and not a pillow, but I liked how comfy he looked on the couch.
While designing this room on Polyvore, I was thinking of my favorite decorating colors: white and light blue. They calm me. They make me happy.
And owls and books and fluffy pillows and soft blankets make me happy.
Not that I’d actually be able to read a vintage French paperback, but I could hold it in my arms, feel the delicate pages with my fingers, and fall asleep with it on my chest as its gentle scent cascaded through my dreams.
