Home tour: Catherine's home in Miami

What's a design blog without home tours? .....right? Yes, this is a design and decor blog, so I think..... So here's my first home tour: The home of Catherine in Miami. 

A crafter, traveler, design enthusiast, and a collector- all this and more-  make up for wonderful home.
Catherine is an immensely talented girl who blogs at Inspire Bohemia, a blog very aptly named after her own style of decorating.

This is what Catherine has to say about herself:....
"I love collecting treasures from all over the world on my travels, as well as here in Miami at garage sales, thrift stores and more.  My philosophy is if I can't be traveling the world 24/7 then I must surround myself with beauty and world treasures to create a comforting sanctuary!"

Well said, Catherine. That is what makes your home so warm and inviting, reflecting your personality.

I'll let the pictures do the talking now....

Catherine's collection of matryoshka dolls, the budhha, the kilim rug and the suzanis....all these give  a truly global feel to her home.

The shadow boxed on the wall are all made by Catherine and showcase her collection of coins from her travels.

This is wall of her own sketches. 

For more pictures of Catherine's home, visit her blog here.

I hope you enjoyed the first home tour on my blog.....and I hope there are many more....Have a great rest of the week!

  6. Neha, As Catherine's mom, I thank you so much for choosing to share her home as your first home tour. I know she is very honored and filled with excitement. As I read other posts on your blog I can't help but think how much you two have in common. You are both blessed with the talent for putting into words your enthusiasm, eye for beauty and your willingness to share with others. Thank you again and I wish you much success and happiness with your blog!

  7. Hello Neha! Thank you oh so much for your wonderful post on my home, I am so honored! As well, thank you all for your sweet comments and compliments. It is very important to me that my home tells a story and feels inviting, after all it is my sanctuary!

    I will be moving to a new apartment soon, which means a blank canvas! I'll miss my old canvas but who am I kidding, a blank canvas is the most exciting thing ever and I can't wait to see how all of my possessions will come together in a different space.

    Once again, thank you all and especially Neha for such a sweet post!
