I’ve been painting all week. This old trunk was in the closet, brown and all scarred up. It is now sporting a coat, many coats that is, of white paint.
The shelf on the table was red. Now it’s a fun peachy color. The fun thing about boho style is all the bright funky colors.
This was my red hutch. It is now a turquoise-y color. I replaced the white knob with a bright pink one that adds a bit of whimsy. The turquoise color of the hutch was pulled from the wall quilt on the wall.
Can’t forget the scruffy boho pupsters. They didn’t help much, but they’re good for a photo op. Abi loves to have her picture taken.
I love seeing house plants through the slats of these window blinds. It’s a bit muted but gives low light plants plenty of bright light.
I painted terra cotta pots for my plants in various paint colors. It was actually a lot of fun to try all these colors.
House plants fit in perfectly with the bohemian style of decorating. Think 1970s and macrame hangers and lots of plants in every nook and cranny. House plants are as popular now as they were then. And I had lots and lots of them!
I recall everyone had lots of wicker back then, and we put basketry on the wall for wall decor. It was a fun way to bring texture into the room.
I purchased the same quilt I have displayed on the wall for my bedroom.
Try creating a fun Boho corner in your home. See how you like it. It kind of grows on you, I’ve found.
You don’t have to go out and buy everything new. Look around and shop your home. Buy some fun bright paint colors. Pick up a pretty boho bedspread. And pull it all together.
