    If you’re an avid blog reader you have probably seen this home make the rounds. If you have not, you’re in luck!

    Christine Dovey of the beautiful blog Bijou & Boheme is a talented designer, stylist and artist with her very own uber cool vibe.  Her home if a perfect visual expression of living like you. This house makes me want to pour a glass of pink champagne and never leave!

    The colors are mostly muted pale pinks, metals and natural hues but there’s nothing muted about this space.

    Hello FEARLESS home!

    The main reason I started Live Like You was to inspire people to decorate their homes in a way that truly reflected themselves. I saw too many depressing, non nondescript, lifeless interiors without imagination that made me depressed. Often with people living in them having NO I clue how negatively it impacted their lives. Yes it’s true, it affects you more than you think! I’m curious…do you agree, or disagree?

    Creating a home that truly reflects you is of course not always going to be popular. It’s a space you that is there to make only YOU happy.  It’s not there to impress your guests or look like a museum. Whatever it is that makes YOU happy is fine with me, as long as you do SOMETHING!

    This home done by a Swedish stylist/designer for her family on the ocean in Southern Sweden is definitely a fearless home.

    A blank white canvas with lots of imagination and playing with scale.

    A serious mixture of items to love.

    Home made chandelier. (It looks like personal notes?)

    A place for the soul?

    Re purposed antiques.

    Love the yellow pants!

    Expressive art.

    Just cool.

    I hope this post inspires you to look around your home and see what you can do to make it personal and a place you love.

    I’ve said it a million times, changing your home is not about money, it’s about imagination and effort.

    And seriously life is simply too short not to.

    Your home is for you, nobody else.

    I always get a kick out of homes that are completely fearlessly designed.  Whether you love them or not, kudos to the person who feels free enough to express who they are in their home. Instead of following trends or hoping people will like it, they just go for it. This is Christina Anguilera’s previous home.  It’s not so difficult to see what kind of person lives here, what she is like and what her profession is.

    Don’t you think?

    Think this home follows just about every sentence written in our MANIFESTO.

    The selection of this house for the fearless home series was my brother’s excellent idea. In the late 1800′s in Sweden when most interiors had dark wood furniture and a very serious vibe. Famous artist Carl Larsson and his wife Karin designed their home with strong wild colors, and all kinds of crazy painter happiness. You might have seen some of his famous paintings of this beautiful home.

    This couple was seriously ahead of their time!  Their home still serves as insane inspiration hundred years later.

    At a time when people had dark dining sets, theirs was bright red.

    He painted lots and lots of paintings of his family in their home.

    Happy entrance.

    Red floor in the 1800′s? How cool.

    How clever…a sleeping cabinet? Bold blue DIY chairs 100 years before it was popular.

    His son’s colorful desk.

    The main area. Check out the green lines defining the walls. Move over Lonny magazine…!!

    Another happy sleeping alcove.

    This was Carls’ bedroom.

    Karin’s home made room divider.

    Don’t you want to just go home and paint your walls after seeing this?
