Pull up a blanket and get hygge with us as we tour Emily’s cozy and inviting Bohonavian home in San Diego!
Welcome to Omysa Home Tours, where we feature stylish and creative homes around the world.
Name: Emily Sanchez
Location: San Diego, California
Type of home: Townhouse, rent
Size: 600 square feet
If Boho and Scandinavian had a baby, it would be Emily’s 600-square-foot Bohonavian home filled with plants, sunlight, and positive vibes. It’s a perfectly imperfect space characterized by layers of textures, one-of-a-kind pieces, pure white walls, and a lorry load of lush indoor plants and warm wood. It’s everyone’s Scandinavian-Boho chic fantasy come alive.
Inspiration came in the form of endless hours of trawling through Instagram and Pinterest. Emily wanted a cozy and inviting home where she could display all of her plant babies and live comfortably while keeping her home’s original Spanish architecture. You’d notice that her home décor leans towards bohemian chic but with lots of natural wood tones set in white surroundings, which creates the typical, clean-lined Scandinavian vibe.
To further emphasize the Bohonavian style, Emily filled the space with natural light by keeping the floor plan open. Emily’s love for home décor and plants completely reflects her home like it’s a natural extension of who she is.
Tell us something about your home
First of all, I love living in San Diego, so having a rental in such a beautiful city is part of the reason why I love my home. What makes my home so special is the Spanish architecture and natural lighting. I love the high ceilings and arches in my home. It makes it feel very cozy.
Tip: Include some wicker in your Bohonavian home, such as a wicker chair or side table paired with natural materials typical of Scandinavian style.
Describe your interior style
I like to describe my interior style as very Boho and Scandinavian.
What is your favorite part of your home and why?
My favorite part of my home would have to be the open concept because the moment you walk in, you feel very welcome. I also have lots of plants all throughout my home, so they also make the space feel very welcoming.
Tip: Indoor plants can make your home more inviting and luxurious. They can also make your home’s air cleaner and healthier. Choose plants that will go well with your home’s style. Don’t forget to consider the planter’s style, as well. Omysa’s Large Round Planter is made from fiberstone. It’s strong but lightweight for its size. Plus, it’s suitable for indoor or outdoor use.
What is your least favorite part of your home and why?
I think the least favorite part of my home would have to be the fact that my upstairs neighbors are very loud. So really there’s nothing I don’t like about my apartment.
