According to HGTV's Emily Henderson, boho decor combines vintage color with a modern edge to create an eclectic and playful feel. Boho stands for "Bohemian," a term that today refers to creative individuals who live unconventional lives, such as artists and musicians. By incorporating original items such as family photographs into the room design, you'll create a room unlike any other. Does this Spark an idea?
- Paint roller
- Paint pan
- Wool area rugs
- Rug pad
- Velvet pillows
- Chenille throw
- Silk curtains
- Crystal or beaded candleholders
Select a color scheme. Boho rooms are known for their infusion of bright jewel tones. Pick two or three colors that you want to use as accents.
Paint the walls with a neutral white or cream. You want to anchor the room with a clean background that will accentuate brightly colored accents.
Hang window treatments. These treatments should be in the one of the accent colors you've selected. Silk curtains add a touch of romantic charm.
Place a rug pad on the area where you want to lay the rug. Roll the wool area rug over the rug pad.
Create a personal artwork wall. Frame a collection of family photographs. Vary the size, shape and color of the frames to increase visual appeal.
Hang a vintage chandelier. Match metal accessories to the chandelier to create cohesion. Black metals work best because they allow focus to remain on the light and the room's bright accents.
Place candles into the candleholders. Place the candleholders around the room, such as atop a coffee table, on a nightstand or on a windowsill.
Accessorize the room with bright, textured accent pieces. Add velvet pillows and a chenille throw to a sofa, chair or bed.
