Boho Chic

Partly made up of world market treasures and partly made up of flea-market finds, boho chic is all about layers of textiles, colors and collections. The opposite of minimalism, boho chic almost invites messiness. A few trademarks of the style: piles of cushions, overlapping rugs, walls covered in art or photos, and furnishings with character (read imperfections). Ultimately, boho style is collected over time. Though an approximation of the style can be achieved overnight, it won't have real character until it has been lived in for a while. A boho space will often have pieces that don't naturally make sense together. But the look is enhanced by the differences. Even the ugliest little piece of furniture will shine in a bohemian room. What's not to love about a style that welcomes rejects?
