Gettin’ Boho In The Home

Boho chic is everywhere right now, which you’ve most likely noticed unless you’re living under a proverbial rock. Admittedly I first shied away from this trend because it can be so in your face with all of those bright colors and patterns. But like anything it’s all about moderation – unless you like the more is more look and then I say go for it!

Another way to embrace the myriad of patterns that fit into the boho look is to select pieces in the same color family. By doing so you can take advantage of the eclectic global textiles that are a mainstay of this artistic and visual style without feeling like you’re living inside of a rainbow.

I think the key to making the bohemian look work – and looking like you’re not trying too hard – is to collect pieces slowly instead of in one fell swoop. A tapestry here, a rug there, pillows over there. The look you want to aim to for is comfortable and lived in, not I bought this at the big box store last weekend.

One of the best parts of boho style is the Anything Goes card, because it really does. Feel free to embrace aspects of the look that fit your personality instead of going whole hog. I love the idea of pulling a few bohemian pillows, a wall tapestry, or a colorful rug into a classical mix.
