If you want to get top dollar for your property, investing in updates and luxurious finishes before it hits the market is a smart move. For this revamp, the Scott brothers pull inspiration from the rich colours and über-comfortable spaces of bohemian living.
Stairway to Heaven
The palette of the formal sitting room is kept simple by using white for the furnishings, wall colour and drapery, offsetting it with contrasting black hardware and accents. A rough wood coffee table grounds the space, while a purple Berber rug and woven throw cushions soften it.
An art canvas covered with bright strokes of colourful paint hangs above the black refinished fireplace, fashioning an eye-catching focal point in this modern room. To fill in the overhead area and create an added sense of intimacy, a two-tiered chandelier hangs in the empty space of the high vaulted ceiling.
The tall windows dressed with airy white drapes paired with the high vaulted ceiling work together to form a feeling of light and air in this luxurious living room. The dark-wood coffee table, richly stained wood floors and black fireplace help to anchor it all.
A large-scale modern painting brings colour and shape into this white-walled dining area. Since the dining room sits beside the kitchen, a long black multi-bulb chandelier helps to define it from the rest of the first-floor, open-concept living space.
While the posts in the kitchen had to remain for structural support, this clever design workaround uses them as bookends for the brand-new island seating area.
Traditional white shaker cabinets are given a modern update with gold hardware. The same golden colour is used for the four caged pendant lights hanging above the massive Quartz-topped kitchen island.
Rattan stools and optical-illusion tiles give this contemporary kitchen a boho feel. Choosing a bold tile for one side of a kitchen island turns a functional feature into a design highlight.
Sightlines for Days
Buyers these days are looking for open-concept living spaces where they can see from one end of the house to the other. Taking out walls and opening up sightlines may have added some zeros to home’s value.
Finding a lighting option that not only does its job illuminating the space, but also ties in seamlessly with the design aesthetic can be tricky. These golden caged pendant lamps neatly tick off both boxes.
Cabinet in Session
Tons of extra storage is usually at the top of the must-have list for most homeowners. prospective buyers. With all the extra cabinets added to this kitchen, people will be bursting down the door eager to fill them up with pots and pans.
A colourful Berber rug brings a sense of boho chic to the kitchen, while the new round bar cart and framed artwork make use of a once-awkward unused corner.
Lay it on Me
Rich layers of velvet, wool, linen and rough cotton give this master bedroom a warm, lived-in atmosphere that gives an interior that sought-after bohemian vibe.
A large fiddle-leaf fig plant livens up a corner of the master bedroom, while stacks of colourful antique books speak to industrious bedtime reading.
Basket Weaving 101
Storing extra pillows and cozy throws in a large-weave basket not only keeps everything neat and tidy, but also gives you an excuse to display a pretty piece of woven art.
As in the living and dining rooms, bold modern artwork also is featured on the white walls of the master bedroom. The massive canvas covers a large section of the end wall to produce a feature wall without having to commit to a wallpaper or covering treatment.
Green With Envy
This chic green-velvet armchair is too pretty to throw laundry on. It is kept uncovered so it can do its design job: echoing the greens, blues and blacks found in the hung art canvas.
Found Your Marbles
Large marble floor tiles instantly elevate this luxurious bathroom, but it’s the multicoloured woven rug that (once again) introduces that on-trend bohemian element into this serene space.
Two Gold Rings
In this revamped bathroom, it’s all about mirror images where each side perfectly reflects the other. From the twin round sinks to the two gold circle mirrors, the owners of this modern bohemian-inspired home will see double – and they won’t mind one bit.
