When fashion designer Kelly Love started sharing snaps of her home over on Instagram (using the #mywestelm tag), we immediately fell in love with her bohemian London home from the word go.

Kelly grew up in the Australian countryside but has been based in London for 8 years working as a designer with her own self-named fashion label that specializes in printed silks and hand knitted pieces. “I love the combination of different textures with clothing and this is very much echoed in the way I’ve decorated our house,” says Kelly.

“I live with my Scottish boyfriend, who is a mechanical engineer, and we moved into our house about 2 years ago. We spent around 1 year completely renovating the space together. The house is a 2 bedroom Victorian conversion in London and was built in the 1870’s. It has beautiful details like high ceilings, which flood the space with light along with an original fireplace and cornicing around all of the ceilings. It has such a lovely, calm feel to it.”

“We laid oak flooring throughout the house and added in white shutters with linen curtains to give a fresh, airy feel. We were so lucky that the house came with a beautiful claw foot free-standing bath that we restored. The colours throughout are quite muted with a lot of texture to give softness to quite a minimal look. It has quite a boho, Scandinavian feel to it and we’ve decorated it with collected pieces from our travels, small boutiques in Australia, eBay, antique fairs and of course, west elm.” Check out all the photos from Kelly’s house below!

This is the complete antithesis of Bohemian!

I look at this with two thoughts in mind, whether right or wrong, and this is what I see. Can I duplicate any or all of this space with either items I have or something similar? Next I look at how easy it will be to clean/maintain the space once I have made it look similar to the design. It may make for excellent pictures but, if it can’t be lived in, does it really make sense?
