Boho 101: How to Embrace the Eclectic Style

If you love mixing textures and patterns, we're taking a look at some tips for bringing boho into your home.

For a boho living room that's instantly relaxing, mix textures and layer rugs to your heart's content. Add faux or natural greenery to the space with bold planters for added effect. Consider adding a mirror as well, like this DIY fringed one. Pay close attention to seating — floor cushions and ottomans will make your space adaptable, casual, and inviting.

Originally used as a term that has problematic undertones, "Bohemian" has since become a term adopted by writers and artists to describe a carefree lifestyle. The style had a heyday during the '60s and '70s in both interior design and clothing, thanks to the hippie look. Since then, it's evolved into "boho," with designers like Justina Blakeney putting their own twist on the term (she calls her plant-filled boho style "jungalow").

Boho style often involves greenery, natural materials, lots of pillows — anything that leads to a space with a laidback, creative look. Macrame is also a popular addition to boho rooms — and while you can find macrame wall hangings galore on Etsy, there are also plenty of easy macrame DIYs.

When it comes to your dining room, many of the same rules apply. Mix textures and plants and get creative with colorful table linens and plates.

Your bathroom can also be a great opportunity to incorporate boho. You can easily transform the space by choosing a boho-inspired light fixture (think rattan or a tasseled chandelier).
