Bohemian Décor DIY Tips

Even though boho chic home décor has a fabulously fun and wild look, a few tips can help ensure things don't get too out of hand.

Colors: Choosing a base color that’s warm and earthy works well, with deep greens, grays and browns some of the most common. Add accents in electric, saturated and fiery colors, such as sizzling red, passionate purple and blazing blue.

Patterns and textures: The playing field is wide open for combining different patterns and textures, layering and hanging fabrics, throws, tapestries, rugs and accessories as desired. Leave some white space or neutral tones as a backdrop to ensure each item gets the attention it deserves.

Furniture: No set style dictates the type of furniture that makes up modern boho décor. Most bohemian homes feature furniture that’s been passed down or collected over the years.
