How to Create a Boho Chic Home
Today, the term boho invokes an image of an artsy, free-spirited aesthetic of mixed textiles, patterns and nontraditional pieces of décor. The modern boho chic adopts an eclectic blend of stylings inspired from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s with an artistic and unconventional flare. Here are some tips to achieve a boho chic home!
Decorate with macramé
Macramé is the art of knotting a cord to create textiles and other décor. Commonly, you may see them as wall hangings or plant hangers. For the boho chic home, make sure to include macramé throughout.
Bring the outdoors in
A boho chic home is not complete without plants! Even if you don’t have a green thumb, you can always opt for faux plants to get the same effect. When picking planters, opt for ones that are made from natural materials, like wood or stoneware.
Be mindful about colors
Stick with soft neutrals and hues, like blush, teal, yellow and orange. These colors add a carefree vibe to the space while not going overboard. Tone down some of the brightness by adding grays and browns as a base to build upon.
Baskets, baskets and more baskets
Natural rattan and other grass baskets are a must-have for a boho chic home. Not only are they practical in that they make great storage solutions, they often have a natural and artistic appearance. Select baskets with patterns and some without for a unique flair. Trying to fill an empty corner? Home a large palm plant inside a rattan basket to brighten up the space.
Mix textures + patterns
By mixing different textures and materials, it gives the freespirited and artistic vibe that is closely tied to boho chic. In the living room, pair a brightly patterned throw or pillow on a solid colored sofa. For the bedroom, try a soft neutral comforter and add texture by adding multiple accent pillows of different patterns. There are so many ways to achieve the same look, so don’t be afraid to try something new!
