Gypsy Dreams Party

Ah, you've come to join the gypsy caravan. Please do come in and enjoy a cup of your favorite beverage. French Designer Jeanne Bayol designed these lovely outdoor settings and the lavish bedroom below. It feels like a hug. The bold use of color and patterns along with textures just seem to meld together perfectly, don't they?.
I collect lanterns. We have them all over our backyard and on the tables. There is nothing quite as romantic as candlelight. It just makes the setting feel magical. Apparently Jeanne feels the same as I do. Imagine the sweet dreams you could have while floating above the ground in this cozy bed. You can watch the fireflies dance by, count the stars and listen to the leaves rustle in the trees. aaah... Learn how to make one yourself Here.
This pretty blue and green gypsy wagon, above was made by 2 traveling artists. Their blog is called The Adventures of the Wandering Book Artists. They have done a fantastic job making it quaint. Their blog is a travelogue of sorts. They are out on the West coast and share lots of images along the way. Fun stuff. Well have fun visiting the other gypsy caravan parties HERE.


  1. lovely post! I am now following the book people. that wagon bed is awesome. the hanging bed, while very cool looking, would be to scary to sleep in (falling out, and wild animals etc)

    have fun and many happy gypsy dreams!

  2. I could stay all day in your gyspy land!! Love it! Shine on!! xo

  11. Oh WOW, what an incredible post- I love everything you've shown here! I've been wanting to redo my bedroom, and now I'm sorely tempted to take inspiration with the one you've shown- love all those textures, patterns and COLOR! Might have to skip the pink tho- don't know if my hubby would go for that ;)
    I've love to see some pictures of your lanterns as well...pleeease?

  12. I am glad I stopped in to see this post...the stuff dreams are made of!

  13. How how I loved your post! Just lovely! So Dreamy!


  14. I love the glow of soft light too, my mom collected oil (sometimes called hurricane) lamps. When she passed I inherited her collection. Nothing makes a room more serene than the soft glow! May all your Gypsy Dreams come true!

  16. What a beautiful and inspiring post!

    That decor is just magical and yes very warm and comforting too - you hit the nail on the head with "just like a hug!"

    The bed is fabulous, I'd love to lie in there - though I think I'd be too scared to fall asleep in case I feel out! xx

  17. I love the bedrooms and the beds, especially the floating bed. I would put a mosquito netting around it, then I could sleep in my backyard - have to check the book artists blog. Thanks for a beautiful post! Love, Linda

  18. oh wow, how beautiful, I want one!
    Lovely to find you! I changed my blog from heavenleighart to julieannfrances.blogspot.
