Spotlight on Boho Chic

With plenty of our favourite retailers bringing contemporary homeware to the High Street, we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to bold colours, contrasting prints and mis-matched textiles. If you love this trend, but worry it will look more trashy than flashy, read on to find out how you can create that whimsical bohemian look in a few easy steps…

To achieve that true Bohemian style, it’s all about the fabrics and textiles. Go crazy with large woven baskets, accessorised with tassels or pom-poms, and use crotchet blankets to create a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere. Luckily you don’t have to be a pro-crotchetier to get your dream blanket, Etsy have some fabulous retro throws to ensure you’ll be snuggled up in no time!

Versatile and attractive, draping tapestries around your room is a simple way to create a calm and comforting atmosphere, and is reminiscent of exotic Marrakesh markets. Hanging a bold piece, such as this tapestry from Urban Outfitters, makes a great statement and will prove a great conversation point when you have visitors.

Excellent when it comes to decoration and comfort, pillows are the perfect way to bring any room to life. We love these Green Aztec cushions and think they would looks perfect teamed with these textured Coral ones – both from TK Maxx (bargain heaven). Their slightly muted tones are perfect for those who love the trend but prefer more subtle shades.

The right rug can truly transform a bedroom and complete the whole bohemian look. We particularly love styles inspired by Turkey and Morocco. Grab yourself a beautiful bargain from online retailers such as Etsy.
