Boho décor has taken over our Instagram and Pinterest feeds for the last few years, and there doesn’t look to be any end in sight for this stylish trend. If you’ve been dreaming of creating your own boho home but aren’t sure where to get started, then keep reading! We’re sharing seven ways to get the look.
Plants, plants, and more plants
Plants are a boho décor staple, and the more the better! From tiny succulents to massive bird of paradises, there are so many cute options and best of all plants are generally super affordable and easy to care for.
Incorporate natural elements
Boho style incorporates a healthy dose of natural elements and materials, like rattan, wicker and jute. Some popular items include pampas grass, baskets hung on the wall, wicker furniture, rattan pieces, and jute rugs.
Layer up your accessories
Boho definitely isn’t minimal, and it typically includes lots of layers and accessories. Go heavy on the throw blankets, throw pillows, vases, and wall hangings. Layering rugs is also a popular look and looks great with a neutral base layer topped by a more colorful rug.
Don’t be afraid of color
While neutral pallets are really trendy at the moment, boho also includes lots of splashes of color. Earthy tones are common, but bright pops of color are great too. And don’t worry about making things too matchy- boho is all about breaking rules and mixing things together.
Play with textures
We don’t want a matte or overly polished and streamlined look when it comes to boho. Instead, the style mixes lots of textures to create a fun, eclectic look. Mixing in a variety of textures, patterns, and colors is a boho staple, and you can add as little or as much variety and texture as you like.
Macrame wall hangings, paintings, rugs, pottery, and pillows in a variety of materials are all super boho ways to add texture to a space.
Make it homey
Boho gives off a warm, lived in feel, so make sure your space looks and feels comfortable and inviting. Couches you can sink into, fluffy throw pillows, cozy blankets, and lots of extra seating (floor pillows, hammock chairs, and papasan chairs are boho seating staples). Anything too stiff, structured, or modern has no place in a boho home.
Make it your own
Of course, décor rules are really just guidelines, and the most important thing is that you make it your own. Go extra heavy on the accessories or opt for a more minimal tone. Use lots of color or stick with a more neutral pallet. Go plant crazy or skip them all together.
Understanding the guidelines of a style allows you to know how to execute the look, but from there you can add your own twist to it to create your own style that’s uniquely you.
