Boho Pouf from Pier 1 Imports

Boho Pouf from Pier 1 Imports

I have been looking for a boho pouf for so long now, I’d just about given up on finding one that I like and could afford. My search is over after a recent trip to Pier 1 Imports. When I saw it, I knew it was the one. I lucked up and caught it on sale for $99. It goes with my shabby chic boho decor and I couldn’t be happier with my new purchase. One less thing.

I moved into an apartment that was converted from a country store to a duplex. I have a neighbor who does not speak English although she can say hi. That’s a lot better than myself who can not say hi in her native language. Something I feel terrible about. Anyhow, my new home is perfect even with all of it’s little flaws. The reason I decided on my new home was because of a few things that I didn’t want to compromise on.

One was a tall ceiling. I have claustrophobia and after being bed bound for 4 years following a failed back surgery nightmare, looking at the ceiling day in and day out, I knew that I couldn’t live in another home without high ceilings. And I absolutely was not moving into a home with plaster on the ceilings. Mine is a combination, wood in some areas, sheet rock in others.

Another must have was no carpet. Albeit, the floors here are a tacky wood looking vinyl (gross), but they aren’t carpet and I did compromise on the vinyl flooring. I won’t compromise on that again. Reason being, glue or something was spilled all over the floor and I have to mop daily or dirt sticks to it. Even if it weren’t for that, I’d still have to mop every day to remove each little dirt particle that I swear falls from the ceiling on a daily basis.

And yet another important must have was no lawn. I owned my previous home for 20+ years, it was on a 2 acre lot that I tended to myself. It. was. not. fun. With continuing back problems, I did not want to strap myself down with lawn care this time around. It would take all day to mow the lawn because I couldn’t drive fast with my back injuries and pain. Trying to keep hedges trimmed was a torture to my pain.

I also refused to move to the country. I’ve lived in the country all of my life and I’m at the age where I don’t like inconveniences. At all. I wanted to live near a store, a library and the post office. I found the perfect spot, actually my daughters found it for me. We were all concerned about the small space being a bit too small but it appeared to be doable and I’ve managed so far. I am within a block of the post office, a store, and the library.

I’ve been decorating my home as I find pieces that go with the theme and interior which is a little eclectic, vintage, retro, boho, shabby chic. Finally finding my perfect “pouf” freed up that task and I can now move on the the next which is finding a pantry. I do not have enough cabinets and that’s become a bigger problem that I thought it would be. I have a china cabinet for my china but I’m storing all of my pans and otherwise in the few cabinets I do have. That leaves no room for food.

TO DO: buy new pantry.
COMPLETED: buy boho pouf.

  3. Love the colors of your pouf. Dressing a home is so much fun to do, especially when you find just the right touches to make it yours. It must feel like a relief to settle into a place that meets a lot of your personal criteria.

  4. Congrats on not having to worry about the dang yard anymore (I am a tad jealous)! This is a great addition to your new place, I love that is an original looking piece!

  5. Like another one of your readers, I didn’t know what a pouf was either. This article lead me to read the “about” section of your blog. Sounds like you’ve lived/living an interesting life. I hope this year brings you additional self discovery and I look forward to seeing your style choices.

  6. I feel so silly not knowing what a Pouf was until now. It looks very nice and I can see why you love it. =)

  7. That is so cute! It would be perfect for sitting on the floor in my son’s room. I’ve been playing video games with him and my butt hurts from his floor. I could take that in with me!

  8. Oh my goodness. That is way too cute. First thing that popped into my head was my girls room would look sooo cute with this but I want one too! So pretty.

    1. I finally found a pantry that I like. I’ve been really sick for the past several weeks so I didn’t get it set up and put together until yesterday. I didn’t want anyone to come over and set it up for me while I was running a fever.
