What is boho chic decorating style?

In other words, what does boho chic look like?

Boho (short for Bohemian) chic decor usually involves a creative and fun mix of prints, patterns, colors and styles.

The term “Bohemian” has gone through many iterations, but for our purposes today, it’s meaning is mostly aesthetically artistic.

Someone looking to add boho chic styling to their own home should think with a free spirit, like an artist.

Collect and edit your surroundings to suit your own eye, interest and tastes.

This is of course easier said than done, which is why this lovely home is such a great example!

Boho style is has a very strong 1970’s design influence.
This typically includes natural elements like rattan, colorful, layered textiles
with a focus on various textures.
The result is a more casual, collected feel within a space.

Is boho chic still in style?

Any decor which beautifully reflects you’re own taste and personality can never really be considered out of style.
There’s a lot of warmth and personality in this living space, two of my favorite qualities when it comes to boho chic home decor.
You can always incorporate current trends into any bohemian style home, if this is something which is important to you.
Otherwise, focus on what makes you happy when it comes to the decor of your own home.

It’s all in the mix.
Etsy and Ebay are both great sources when it comes to finding cool pieces like this steamer trunk.

I love using vintage runners like the one above in a bathroom.
It’s so fun and unexpected, such a great look.

The boho style in this living room is a favorite of mine.
I used the same mirror and a similar bubble chandelier in our beach house renovation.
Now that I’m looking at this image with fresh eyes again, I’m inspired to add a similar round ceiling medallion.

Colorful floor tiles with the black and white iron shower doors are such a great example of bohemian style.
It’s all about mixing and matching.
