Boho-chic is in and we couldn’t be happier. We love a free-spirited vibe that makes us feel like we’re at an outdoor music festival. Boho is all about patterns, textiles, and textures. It aims for a vintage look that embraces a natural color palette and rustic, casual touches.
Want to give your home a little bit of that boho magic? Here are five easy touches to transform your space into a bohemian paradise.
Macramé is the art of tying and knotting cord together to create a beautifully intricate textile. This veritable art form, which was big in the 70s, also adds a handmade touch without looking too crafty. Try a macramé hanging for your walls.
Fun, fuzzy, and oh so colorful, pom-poms inspire a lighthearted, whimsical feel. They bring to mind wandering caravans in faraway lands, which is perfect, since being boho is all about being well-traveled. Pom-pom garlands are ideal for hanging over doorways while pom-pom trivets add a functional element.
There’s nothing that inspires a vintage hippie aesthetic quite like tie-dye (Woodstock anyone?). But if you’re wary of looking like a Dead Head, you can opt for smaller items, like these Tibetan Coasters. Or, try a Shibori throw, whose indigo hue is a contemporary alternative to that 60s psychedelic color palette.
Dream catchers are a beautiful nod to traditional Native American culture and add a soothing spiritual element. Originally made using woven wood hoops and feathers, you can now find them in all different colors, shapes, and materials. Try one with beads or macramé.
Boho is all about embracing the aesthetics of other cultures. Different patterns from around the world are a great way to infuse your space with color while also giving it a global feel. Consider a Kantha cushion from India or bold mudcloth textiles from Mali.
