A trend that keeps reinventing itself with fresh elements fused with tribal undertones and exotic textures. Boho décor is timeless and creates a sense of warmth in any home it is executed in. There are a few must-haves you need and of course, special treasures you have found along your gypsy-inspired travels and magical shopping excursions.
Rattan Furniture and Hanging Chairs
We’ve seen the revival of rattan furniture over the last few years and man, are we loving it. The world of décor is seeing the versatility of rattan in pendant light fittings, in bedrooms used as headboards, and as accents in sideboards.
Hanging chairs are the perfect addition to your bohemian-inspired space. You can easily have one in any outdoor space where there’s a sturdy support system. They look great on patios but work exceptionally well indoors too. Complement your hanging chairs with rich textures, tasselled pillows and throws.
Oriental rugs come in a large variety of types, colours and sizes. Budget-depending, you can easily find a treasured rug that will last for many years to come. Kelims, with their intricate patterns and dyes, work well in bohemian-inspired spaces.
Persian carpets are an investment that also has a very long lifespan. The more expensive you run, the better quality it will be and the longer it will last.
Floor Cushions and Woven Baskets
Floor cushions bring a sense of cosiness into any living space. Beautiful cushions and pillows will not only add extra comfort to the room but also create a splash of colour with bold colour choices and luxurious textures.
Woven baskets mounted on to the walls in a good composition can do wonders for your walls. Full of texture and decorative patterns, you can also use your baskets as storage on the floor. Laura Cattano says, “The beauty of these baskets is that they don’t look like storage, and, as “If someone walks in, they just see a basket, a beautiful basket instead of the toys, remotes and whatever else can lie around the house.
Mac is back and an essential element in your home when you are trying to pull off boho-chic living space. “Though macrame wall hangings are popular in today’s homes, minimal and bohemian alike, they got their start thousands of years ago. The macrame trend came back around in the 1970s and seen everywhere from wall hangings and plant holders to belts and handbags. Now, macrame wall hangings are back with a vengeance, ready to prove to all of us that they’re not just for hippies or our ancient ancestors, that they can be soft, chic, breathtakingly beautiful, and perfect for a 21st century home.” explains the team at Dune.
