The modern boho trend is less of a trend and more of a way of life. Favoured by those who prefer to colour outside the proverbial lines, this style is eclectic, warm, personal, and original. There are no set rules to worry about. Instead, the aim is to do your own thing in a way that follows your own sense of style.
Modern boho works well in just about every type of home and every single room within the home. Whether you are looking to mix things up a bit of you have a love for all things boho, this decor style is lots of fun.
Adding a Touch of Modern Boho to Your Home
How do you go about infusing some modern boho quirkiness into your space? For starters, try one or more of these tips to help you find inspiration.
In the living room…

Layered textures, unusual rugs, handwoven pillows, natural baskets, Mid Century style furniture mixed with modern furniture, plants, colours, and interesting decor all work together in this gorgeous living room. Unlike the full bohemian decor styles of yesteryear, the modern take is a bit more understated. That does not have to mean boring, however. It simply means focusing on a few details rather than going overboard.
In the bedroom…

Bedrooms should never feel overcrowded or overdone. The trick here is to keep things simple. Clean white walls and crisp white bedding help to off-set off-beat touches such as vintage woven throws, kilim poufs, antique rugs, secondhand furniture, junk store finds, family hand-me-downs, plants, and other touches.
In the entryway…

Entries are an often neglected area of the home. This is the very first introduction that visitors have when visiting your house, however. You can spruce this area up without trying too hard. A nice rug, a hallway table or bench, a junk shop mirror, a plant, and a few carefully chosen decor pieces or some artwork on the walls, and you will have the perfect boho style entry in no time.
In the nursery…
Boho nurseries are charming, versatile, and ideal for boys and girls. The focal highlight in this room is without a doubt the gorgeous rattan cane crib. Beautiful, whimsical wallpaper continues the whimsical feel, while natural and understated decor and furniture add even more without going over the top. To finish off the nursery, add a colourful woven rug that infuses a bit of colour.
You do not have to spend a fortune to enjoy this style. In fact, many boho style decor pieces are handed down, found at markets or purchased from local craftsmen at good prices. It is these unique finds that make the modern boho trend so magical, helping you create a space that is truly your own.
