There are just so many design styles to love!  And as you know lately I’ve had bohemian colorful island spaces on my mind. So I asked some blogger friends to help me spread the vibe…. Starting up with someone who knows bohemian interiors well…I asked Sarah from La Maison Boheme to pick out her favorite looks and items from the Mamma Mia Island look, and what represented that look to her.  Hop over and have a look!

And visit  lovely Thara’s  great blog Rebel Mom and get LiveLikeYou deals. She shares heaps of helpful information, inspiration, solutions, fashionable advice and lots of special deals from stores!

And now on to Gretchen’s lovely home, from the  Gretchen Opgenroth blog. Gretchen is a graphic designer who recently started designing homes and remaking vintage pieces. She recently opened her own  shop called The Collected Home. Her house is filled with Southern welcoming charm, with a fun modern touch, and great use of color. And of course a bit Mamma Mia inspired.


I want to hang out here!

Living room with a fun collection of pillows.

A vintage redo chair.

And the sweetest Mamma Mia inspired girl’s bedroom!!

With great attention paid to little details everywhere.

A cheery living room spot.

A cool bohemian vignette.

Bright happy kitchen.

Dreamy outdoors spot!

Hope you’re all having a great week and enjoying your summer!

    Just love the layering of fun fabrics as pillows in the living room!! You can't go wrong with florals, animal prints, and graphic patterns! Bravo!
