4 Ways to Create a Boho Chic Home

Updated: Jan 20, 2021

Earlier this year when we bought our new home, I had my first opportunity to figure out what style I was going to use in my home. For most of us, this is a daunting first step. It can be really hard to pin down your style and know where to start. After spending some time on Pinterest (which is a great place to start if you find yourself in a similar situation), I soon noticed similarities in my pinned inspiration photos. It didn't take long for me to land on the modern bohemian style, which feels true to who I am and how I want my home to feel.

So what is boho style? At its heart, boho style is a mix of all the things you love. Think colors, patterns, comfort and free-spiritedness. Boho style can be eclectic, colorful, lively and have global elements and influence. It's hard to give an exact definition for boho style, because it can look and feel different for everyone. However, there some common elements you will want to incorporate if you want to create your own boho chic home.

1. Lots of Color

Now, this one might be contested by the minimalist boho-lovers who prefer a clean, neutral look in their homes (which is great, too!). However, in my opinion, when it comes to boho style, color is key! How much color you use and where you use it is up to you, but consider selecting a colorful area rug to anchor your space, and using 2-3 colors from your rug as accent colors throughout your home. Those accent colors can appear in your curtains, throw pillows, or perhaps color block features on your wall. With a rug that makes a statement and complementary accent colors pulled throughout the space, you can go neutral with your furniture which will make it easier for you to change things up if you decide to go with a different decorating style later on.
