Pins of the Week: Eclectic Global Boho Chic

That mouthful of a title summarises much of what visually turns me on. I think of an abundance of pattern, colour, prints – and wacky combinations of all three!

Similarities in feel and creative energy – i.e. something rather intangible – perhaps, more than anything else.
