Do you love a modern bohemian interior? Are you all about the pattern, pom poms and tassels? Then Modern Boho is your style.
How to style your home
Pattern is an expressive element of the Modern Boho home style.
Choose florals to create rich interiors that feel uplifting and spirited.
Embrace ditsy floral motifs to add a sense of fun. Source botanical prints to offer a sophisticated orientation. Or, find folksy florals to accentuate the laid back feel.
Find pattern in wallpapers, curtains, rugs, cushions, tiles and wallhangings.
2) Abundance and Detail
The Modern Boho home style is abundant with decoration.
Look for cushion covers with tufted detailing or throws adorned with oversized pom poms. Enhance walls with expressive artwork, and ceilings with feathery light fittings.
Proudly display your books and bedeck the kitchen or bathroom walls with intricately decorated tiles.
Details really matter here, but there is a softness to the overall installation.
Choosing a limited colour palette can help, (I use the rule of three), as well as maintaining enough empty space to rest the eyes.
House plants provide structure, contrast and colour to our interiors as well as having additional wellness benefits.
We can steer the overall feel of a room depending on which plants we choose, and how and where we display them.
A floor standing cheese plant works well in an informal layout, whilst a mature cactus can hold court in a more structured hallway. A thrifty spider plant expresses 70’s liberation whilst the delicately trailing leaves of a ceiling hung plant shows off our boho macramé.
4) Signature Features
Bohemian interiors have specific signature features that give it that laid back folksy vibe.
Macramé, for instance, is the art of crafting textiles using various knotting techniques and has made a huge resurgence. Look for plant pot holders, wall hangings and table decor.
Shaped or lattice weave rattan and wicker are also fantastic features that create a real sense of boho style. Look for headboards, chair backs and even pendant lamp shades.
Even something as simple as a round, buttoned, cushion will add an artistic feel.
5) Laid back Vibes
A Modern Boho home style is an informal interior with a relaxed, unstructured layout. Low level furnishings and ceiling hung plants encourage this nonconformist vibe.
Look for futons, stack french mattresses into sofas, or just keep your bed on the floor!
