Even as a graduate of Interior Design I am still sometimes overwhelmed by trying to recall all of the different types of interior styles—Minimalist, Modern, Scandinavian, French Country, Vintage Chic—the list goes on. I recently have come to appreciate Bohemian decor in a Mid Century Modern space. From luscious indoor plants to exotic textures and fabrics, here are 6 ways that boho decor can take your home from “No” to “Woah!”
1. Mix and Matched Patterns: Who ever claimed that everything had to be matchy-matchy? I’m here to tell you that they were wrong. Mixing and matching patterns via rugs, throws and wall decor are a great way to add visual interest to the space and give an exotic, boho chic feel.
2. Toned Colors: Regardless of how busy patterns and textures might be when mixed together, ensuring that the colors of your decor are toned is essential. Not only does this create cohesion, but it adds an air of sophistication and relaxation.
3. Monochromatic Decor: In some cases, a more relaxed boho aesthetic can be achieved by simply maintaining one color throughout the space and mixing up the textures and materials. This is a great way to also ease into the boho chic style for people who like to change up the design of their homes often.
4. Rattan Furniture: There’s nothing more bohemian chic than a natural looking piece of furniture. This Rattan crib sets the perfect aesthetic in a relaxed nursery. I especially love the sheep skin throw! What a heavenly nap that would be…
5. Moroccan Rugs: Boho chic interiors often have exotic decor. Adding a Moroccan rug is the perfect touch for creating a sophisticated, yet casual space. Pair it with light wood for a Mid Century look or dark wood for nice contrast.
6. Peacock Chairs: Severely underrated, Peacock chairs may have originated in East Asia, and had their revival in the mid 20th century with boho chic interiors. I love the details and the antiquity of these beautiful pieces!
