If you are free-spirited and love natural fabrics and color, then bohemian decor could be the right style for your home! There are lots of ways to bring in bohemian style decor to your space and I’d like to go over a few basic ideas today. These “boho decor” ideas are perfect for beginners who would like to learn the essential bohemian decor elements.
Bohemian decor is often associated with people in the arts. It is eclectic by nature and there are no rules when it comes to boho style decor. Boho decor takes the “more is more” approach, mixing all sorts of colors, patterns, textures, and embellishments whenever desired.
Let’s get started with a quick introduction to bohemian furniture styles and characteristics.
