unnamed (6)This book. This book! Alright. So I found out about this book through an entirely different channel than I usually do. I signed up to receive emails from domino.com some months ago because they share some really inspiring photos of homes and home decor. Well, in early October, one of the emails from them contained a photo that was absolutely gorgeous and colourful, and I clicked the link below it. It took me to this article on domino.com, which features some photos of Justina’s work (which I find soothing to look at, and just overall inspiring). Her book, The New Bohemians Handbook was then show at the bottom, and I remember being really drawn to the cover and Justina’s style. So, I emailed the publishes, and was lucky enough to receive a copy of this beautiful book in the mail!

unnamed (5)Cover to cover, this guide is of the highest quality. The paper is my favourite type of paper in a book like this, glossy and with the best colour pigmentation. The book is a hardcover, which is also something that I prefer, and it has rose gold accents on it! Ah! I mean, just look at itThe New Bohemians Handbook is perfection inside and out, and I enjoyed every minute that I spent flipping through the pages. The colour, and interior designs contained within the book are just pure perfection, and I definitely intend to implement some of the ideas shared by Justina once I have my own place to decorate!

I highly recommend this book to those who are looking to bring more positive vibes into their homes through home decor, and also those who simply enjoy looking at books like this! It was honestly soothing enough just to look at the photos of the homes featured in this book.
