I’ve been Learning More about Boho Decor and I am Liking what I See

I’ve been seeing a lot of the “boho” (bohemian) style lately! As I looked into it more, I have come to the conclusion that I really like the contemporary boho style, also known as modern boho or boho chic. I love the eclectic feel of using many different styles together. Although my Beatles themed guest room has that vintage bohemian look that I love.

I think I have been leaning toward the contemporary (modern, chic) bohemian style for awhile now with my love of natural colors, wood, elements of nature, and color. I just didn’t know it had a name.

This video really explains boho style well. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Nxe8-61WWaI

As a result of my research, I’m beginning to create some modern boho style projects in the coming days. I love that macrame and crochet is trending so I’m definitely going to making some coasters for sure.

This lady also explains boho really well. I think it is becoming very popular.

She gives away a free 8×10 print so I printed it out this morning and put it in a gold frame. Simple to do.

I printed her 8×10 botanical watercolor image and put it in a gold metallic frame. A simple project that will look great with any style, but especially with the modern boho (bohemian) Look I’m going for.

With the boho style in mind, I then crocheted a couple of sets of coasters from this free pattern: https://forthefrills.com/boho-crochet-coasters-easy-free-pattern-beginners/

A garden shelf display that shouts “SUMMER”! This could easily fit in boho decor or any style.

Dimensions: 15” wide x 15” high (with greenery) x 5” deep

Transfers and bird stamps were applied to this cute yellow shelf. Stain was applied for a distressed vintage look. Small, well worn clay pots fit inside the 12” wide 3” high and 4” deep inside shelf. Faux greenery hangs from the pegs.

I had started painting these 3 storage cases with metal trim some time ago but was not sure how I wanted to finish them. When I realized they would make the perfect Boho display, I knew what to do.

I painted them lightly with black and distressed them. The top I opened and filled with greenery, a beautiful green silk sunflower and a cloche I made earlier from a light fixture. I added some boho looking transfers and put a coral rose inside. I also added a crocheted coaster for color.

As I was crocheting boho coasters, I thought making a bigger one would look pretty cool as a wall hanging. So, that’s what I did.

I had also thrifted a little votive holder with a tiny ceramic bird. Keeping in mind the boho look likes metallics, I spray painted the base a metallic gold and added a little clay pot with faux lavender.

Yep, I’m obsessed with boho. I have 3 new Primula hot/cold tumblers. I had to boho them up a little with some transfers from Dollar Tree (sealed for protection). After all they are metallic and colorful!

That’s all for now. I’m sure I will have more coming up.
