When it comes to home decor, I’d described my taste as pretty versatile. Or I should say confused, maybe 🙂 because I have a thing for minimalist interiors, but I also love romantic and dark ones. Both modern and antique furnishings and much more. And while I used to not particularly like bohemian interiors, I recently started to change my mind about them.
As you probably know if you regularly read this site, I’m not the biggest fan of bright colors and colorful outfits so when it comes to decorating I rarely take some “risks”. That’s why I’ve never considered boho style. I used to find it too extreme (for me, of course). Maybe because I saw some people who, totally won by this style, suddenly filled their house with ikat prints, crocheted cushions, tribal art and more. But I admit I’ve always had a thing for beaded curtains, though they’re quite impractical!
A bohemian touch can add warmness to a room.
A duvet in a printed colorful pattern, a rug, some candles, a few cushions can make the difference, there’s no need to fill your house with many objects.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve always thought that comfortable is one of the most important thing when it comes to home. Some houses are beautiful, but they often make me think of impracticability (like this bedroom, for example, does someone actually sleep surrounded by all those lights?!?). As Leonardo da Vinci said “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” and I totally agree.
The house is the biggest extension of a person, or at least it should be.
Living in a place that doesn’t represent you is quite bad. It’s like wearing the wrong perfume. But once in awhile, doing something new is like a breath of fresh air.
So, these are my bohemian picks. Maybe for some of you they won’t be bohemian enough, but at least I tried to step out of my comfort zone 🙂
