New moon intentions 

The new moon is tonight so I’m gathering my intentions. Carefully find  your intentions and see that they dont interfere with the universal intention. 

Setting personal gratifying intentions like “winning th lotto” are less effective because they are not in sync with your soul. 

Setting your intention with the hopes to let God work through you for the greater good is most effective. 

Intention. Tune into coincidences 
Feel intentions 
Stop worrying about job money house kids
Will have money job house and kids long life good health 

Kirra Jamison’ s cheerful artistic house in Melbourne

Muna Home’s take on Kirra Jamison’s artistic home


Kirra Jamison' s home

Today, we are visiting the two-story warehouse-style home of Melbourne-based artist, Kirra Jamison. The house is  reflecting the colorful, warm, simple and easy-going Australian style. In this exciting creative home; furniture and art come together with most stylish taste. In a way,  I could say the interior decor of the home is an extension of Kirra Jamison‘ s artwork with its bold, fresh colors and geometrical forms and with old used elements.  The house is also full of surprising details such as swing in the dining area which adds a playful touch to open living area.

The open living style of Kirra Jamison‘ s house is truly welcoming, eclectic and cheerful. The sweet little french dogy looks awesome on the great carpet where he stands and poses..

Sweet Bohemian Luxe Wedding

This past STORMY weekend I went to the most precious wedding. The sweet couple had big dreams of getting married by the lake here in Dallas, but unfortunately the rain did not let that happen. They didn’t let that damper their day. The two made their vows indoors with all their family and friends by their side… its so nice to see love. Stumbling around today, I found this “wedding” photo montage that stole my heart. How cute are they?

They met in college as friends. Amanda tried to strategically choose her seat according to where Nate sat and hoped they’d strike up long, meaningful, and deep conversations in a casual way so it didn’t look like she was trying as hard as she was. But Nate was oblivious to her seat picking and simply saw Amanda as the sweet girl who made him smile.

The semester ended and though they were both English majors, Nate and Amanda didn’t see each other much until she crossed his mind a couple months later. Again and again. Nate took a chance and sent her a message through Facebook and what he didn’t see at the time was Amanda’s reaction to his message. OH MY GOODNESS THE CUTE GUY FROM MY ENGLISH CLASS MAY OR MAY NOT BE HITTING ON ME!!!

That was the start of their whirlwind college romance which later led to a wedding and starting a life together. Much has changed since their English class days (they got a cute house, started a photography business, and adopted an adorable dog), but they decided to revive wedding memories for the sake of photos.

I love the idea of doing “wedding” photos after the wedding.. especially if you had a not so pretty wedding day! Day After sessions are perfect if you didn’t get enough portraits on your wedding day, or maybe you weren’t happy with you wedding photos. This is a great chance to put back on your wedding attire and get some great photos of the two of you – and have some fun with it! I love that Amanda and Nate were inspiring by their child like love of camping. Gorgeous photos by Jasmine Star, styling and a pretty bouquet by Jesi Haack and makeup by Melina Ruiz.

And love this great marriage advice from the newlyweds…

“Take time to be present together. As a couple that works from home together, this is especially important for us to remember. We can’t just say we’re going to have a date night and then proceed to sit on the couch working from our laptops as a movie plays…we need to completely set things aside and be totally present with one another. I think it’s good to frequently ask each other how you are doing. It’s a simple question, but sometimes when you ask you find out that you had no clue your partner was even feeling a certain way. As cheesy as it sounds, make time to snuggle. 5 minutes of daily snuggling should be mandatory! 😉 Don’t stop being silly with one another…ever. Laughter is so important. And lastly, always remember how lucky you are that you got to marry your best friend. (These last 2 sentences are Nate’s contribution. He’s a man of few words…but a few heart-melting words).”

Can you believe Amanda made her own dress??! Gorgeous…

Bohemian Style Crop Tops Trending

I am usually the last to pick up on the trending styles, but I can’t help but notice crop tops everywhere! This 80’s throwback is going to make me start passing up the Toll House chocolate cookies and start doing some crunches.

Bohemian Treehouse crop top

Also known as a “belly shirt” or a “cutoff shirt,” a crop top is a top which falls just above or around the navel, exposing the midriff section. Crop tops have gone in and out of fashion since the 1980s, and have also become a symbol of sexuality.

During the mid-1980s, pop star Madonna caused a controversy when she gyrated in a mesh crop top in her video for the song “Lucky Star.” Also during this decade, cutoff crop tops became a popular fashion item thanks to the aerobic craze and popularity of the movie Flash Dance. It became common for girls to crop off sections of their workout wear, such as sleeves, collars, and the hem of the shirt to create a loose-fitting top which was often worn over a body suit or tank top. Crop tops were also often paired with low-slung belts in the 1980s, angled at the side of the hip.

Home of Anahata Katkin

There are people in the world that come into life to create and inspire others. I find they are the most admirable people on earth. Here in today’ s post I am very happy to a share a person exactly like that, Anahata  Katkin who surrounded her life with art, design and creativity.  We will visit her home, studio and shop called PAPAYA.eclectic details from Anahata Katkin' s home

Anahata Katkin is a true gem with her open her heart to different cultures around the world. She is highly influenced by Asian flavors and antiques. She is originally from Alaska and currently based in Oregon. Her her synergy comes from her constant travels around the world where she shops for her lifestyle store PAPAYA. She says as much as she  likes to wander she is deeply in love with “home”.


 She adds:

“Interiors are as rewarding and fulfilling for me as painting.  It’s not just a place to unwind.  I work here, we live here, entertain, we create and we collapse here.  I tinker with it and build on it daily.  I am constantly searching for the right balance between hoarder and modernist.  I can’t decide which I am- though clearly I am no minimalist!  It is a place to inspire my work at our PAPAYA! Living boutique and an ever changing test lab of artwork & treasures.  I wanted to share my space here because it is one of my great joys…”

It is possible to feel the rich eclectic influence on her beautiful apartment by individual pieces of furniture, kilims, fabrics and materials.

None of them are aimed to be matched rather to put together with love to create a great living interior atmosphere.

Sculptures, stones, paintings, flowers, plants they all seem like part of a theatrical scene where Anahata is the main role player. She creates her own life style like no other by great authenticity. working corner of anahata katkin

Her house is enlightened by beautiful daylight and she makes little surprises using every little corner by her lovely styling of materials. It is not hard to feel the comfort even just looking at the photos.

She feels her home with daily inspirational words and quotes wherever she can find. Her positive spiritual act fills her home with great energy which expresses herself and passion for good life.

She decorates her walls by her mixed media wallpanels and puts her own creative signature to her rooms.

She catches harmony mixing old and new, modern and antique, or in combination of informal and precious artefacts.

The combination of fabrics which are used on her room is a result of her great global taste. I especially loved the rug on the floor and the kilim puff on it.

She travels, shops, collects, paints and shares her passion with world. She also has a blog anahata.typepad where you can see her artwork, inspirations and lifestyle. anahata katkin working corner


Her wallpaper panels are mixed media pieces built on textured wallpapers. They range between 4.5 to 6 foot in height. She applies painting, blending techniques and mixed materials. She sells them at her store PAPAYA.

Papaya store

The colors, patterns, materials, objects, antiques all create a positive visual sense causing a desire to have the style rather than one object from a store. I think that is the success of PAPAYA store. The main idea is about the beauty of visual lifestyles not  just merchandises on sale. After all, we all love to dream and admire to create. She communicates with the world that all desires are possible as long as you are ready to expand and transform. What could be more inspiring?

Bohemian Dining; Mixed Seating for Dinner

Bohemian Dining; Mixed Seating is just my style.

Working on my renovating my dining room I realize I hate all my existing furniture.

The problem; I am a crazy person and I buy any chair that has a good price tag. I may be a bit of a chair lush. So I have a ton of random chairs in my house.. and on the back porch.. and in the shed… I’m thinking I better find a use for all these odd chairs and around the dining table would be a perfect choice.tables

Looking around on Pinterest and Houzz I noticed that most of my favorite dining rooms are random, funky and full of mixed chairs. 


I am truly bench seating in the mix.


 I know I am pointing out the seating but what is that art piece? So unique. I could use that as well in my dining. 

Southampton-MoroccanBe sure to check out Houston TX based designer Laura U. She has some incredible bohemian interior designs. 



Love all the bright colors.  bohemian dining

My true dining chair love… Eames.. and the Pantone and Ghost Chair.. ahhhh love them. 


Hope everyone is having a wonderful May!! Thank you as always for reading.
