Bohemian Rhapsody

bohemian rhapshody irvings

Over the weekend, I came across the Long Island home of Ian and Emilie Irving in the New York Times T Magazine. The home is filled with chintz, antique ethnic textiles, and finds from their extensive travels. It is chic and bohemian, bringing to mind a cottage in the English countryside. Ian and his first wife, famed textile designer and tastemaker, Carolina Irving originally worked on the home together, and I must say, her influence continues to emanate from each room. As life would have it, the house evolved, as did Ian’s life, and he eventually married his second wife, Emilie, a young, chic, beautiful woman who shares his passion for antiques. You can read the full T Magazine article, but in the meantime, I’ve paired some of the images from the article with my favorite looks from the Ulla Johnson Spring/Summer 2016 collection which is currently available for pre-order through Moda Operandi. The collection is chic, effortless, and undoubtedly bohemian and immediately made me think of the Irving’s home.
