Atlanta designer Julie Holloway calls her signature style "bomoco" for its blend of bohemian, modern and country. There are plenty of design tips to incorporate into your own space, from the soft pastels of an Oriental rug that soften the seagrass rug underneath (and dispense with the need for a rug pad) to the whimsical art dead-center above the headboard to the imaginative mix of old and new in the acrylic chair combined with a rustic wooden desk used as a nightstand here.
