Fashion Translation: Bohemian Florals

When the word ‘bohemian’ comes to mind, I feel like it can go in one of two directions: bohemian florals or bohemian global. This applies to both fashion and home, so today I want to talk about the floral version of the boho trend. I feel like bohemian florals tend to have an old world, found kind of feeling… sort of like you found a super special gem in your grandmother’s closet or sitting room.

In terms of color, I think picking the right hues is of utmost importance. Darker grounds like burgundy and rich aubergine feel modern when popped with pale pastels and sagey shades of green. I also love when the florals are neutral on neutral, making the statement way less impactful and easily incorporated into any living room or bedroom.

The scale of floral motifs is also important, too. I suggest thinking within extremes — either super large scale or smaller scale that covers the entire surface of your rug. The idea is to think of it as an extension of your favorite floral maxi dress for summer; pale colors, bohemian botanicals, and all. Because this look can get quite overpowering, I also urge you to keep the rest of your space fairly neutral. Think of how lovely these rugs would be with a simple linen toss back sofa, some neutral pillows, and black and white photography hanging on the walls!
