MODERN BOHO DECOR FOR YOUR HOME

The modern boho look is one of the most sought-after trends in the Canadian home today. What does "boho" really mean, though? To start, this phrase is derived from the word bohemian, which historically referred to gypsies from the Bohemia region of the Czech Republic (who knew, right?!). In modern day context, the Bohemian style is not necessarily busy. When it meets minimalism, a refreshing trend of decoration is born and that catches our eyes instantly - we call it the Modern Boho Style.


With a mixture of colors, textures, patterns and accessories we can achieve the comfortable, relaxing and sometimes whimsical boho atmosphere in our modern homes.



WALL HANGINGS


Beautiful wall hangings - especially those gifted, hand-made treasures from friends - can easily add texture and life. They are a simple way to warm up your wall and add a touch of boho-chic to the space.

LAYERS AND TEXTURE


The addition of texture in our spaces provides visual interest, depth and most importantly, personality. By layering chunky knits against the clean lines of our bedroom furniture or the visual pattern of these throw pillows against the smooth leather in our living room, we create a welcoming sense of depth.

TROPICAL PLANTS AND GRASSES


Plants are an essential element to bringing life and dimension to a room, with their organic shapes and textures. We have an amazing variety throughout our home - with our favorites being the fiddle leaf fig & snake plant. Some plants are easier to care for than others so please check out my plant care guide HERE.

MINIMAL FURNITURE


The simple and elegant lines of Scandinavian furniture pieces pair beautifully with the textures, warmth and uniqueness of these boho inspired elements.

WOOD BEAD LIGHTING


As a nod to the eclectic tendencies of the the boho design style, elements such as fringe, fibers and wood beads are all components you can utilize to tie in your lighting design choices with the overall layering and décor choices of your room.

WOVEN BASKETS & WOOD PLANT STANDS


Woven baskets and wooden plant stands both tie harmoniously into the boho design concept with the use of natural materials and handmade shapes.
