How to Transform Any Room into a Boho Luxe Space
Bohemian Luxe blends eclectic home design with hotel-chic. It’s glamorous and transitional yet traditional, as it incorporates antique and rustic elements. A luxurious take on the usual style of Bohemian, it draws inspiration from music, travel, literature, and art from both the past and present. Filled with pops of color, prints, fabrics, and texture, this “anything goes” style of decor is all about mixing and matching while exuding lavishness. The philosophy of “Bohemian Luxe” is to express oneself with full freedom through pieces that are timeless, elegant, and sophisticated. Read on for some home décor tips to get the Boho Luxe look!
Incorporate texture into flat spaces for dimension. You can utilize wallpapers, rugs, blankets, or woven art to your liking. Displaying a range of textures make for more interesting living spaces. Variety is always great in this case so don’t be afraid to experiment with different textures.
To achieve casual, Boho comfort and easy glamour, juxtapose soft, plush chairs and couches against marbled tabletops. Layer elegant metallic accents and wood, rattan, or other organic material to pay homage to nature. The diversity of elements gives the room a pleasant ambience for all of your visitors to enjoy.
Rich, luxurious fabrics and patterns come to mind when describing the Boho Luxe style. Popular prints include tribal or Native American-inspired designs as well as geometric shapes. Geometric shapes maintain unity within the space as well as break the overall organic aspect of the room. A perfect balance is created when symmetrical figures are thrown into the mix so give them a try!

You may find liberation in interior design, especially with the Boho Luxe style, as it is your opportunity to create something that’s unique to you. So take advantage of your freedom through creativity. Happy decorating!

Home Décor Tips for the Modern Bohemian
The modern Bohemian decorating style embraces tranquility while maintaining a contemporary feel. It involves vibrant and colorful patterns and textiles, emphasizing the unconventional. The relaxed, eclectic aesthetic is influenced by a variety of styles and tailored to the unique preference of the decorator. If you’re looking to achieve a style that you can call your own, read on for some home décor tips.
Warm hues, Earth tones, and metallics are common elements of most modern Boho spaces. Combine muted colors with deeper, saturated ones to create unconventional harmony within the room. Mixing and experimenting with color keeps things interesting within the space.
Similarly, different textures and materials should be combined to achieve eccentric richness. Natural furniture materials like rattan, burlap, reclaimed wood, and teak complement wrought iron, aluminum, steel, and other metals. Variation of material is sure to provide an unfamiliarly pleasant experience for your visitors.
Give bland planes some dimension by adding texture to the walls. Transform any area into a lavishly modern Boho room by adding things like wallpapers or framed textiles. You can even hang up rugs, blankets, or woven art.

A characteristic of the Bohemian style, whether modern or vintage, is the incorporation of collectors’ items, handmade pieces, and/or little knick knacks from your travels. You can expect a modern Boho room to feature unusual accessories and décor. Handmade masks, beads, artwork, and sculptures are all exceptional additions to achieve the Boho vibe. Each item should tell a story and carry its own significance to you – that’s what makes your space yours.
Use plants to liven up a closed space. Adding air plants, hanging plants, ferns, succulents, or other indoor plants is a decorative way to improve air quality. If you don’t have a green thumb, look for plants that are easy to care for. Many indoor plants are low maintenance, requiring only occasional watering and a sunny spot to thrive. For those who are looking for no-maintenance greenery, consider this modern Boho cactus décor by Fiona Walker England pictured below (right). You can even hang it up! Get yours here.
Don’t dull out your edge! Decorative skulls, arrows, and dark objects can really set the scene and are ideal for breaking up an overly-peppy corner.

Available in a variety of blends such as Tiger Eye to release stress and anxiety, Peach Quartz for inner peace, and Obsidian Crystal to block negativity, you’re sure to find the right candle to fit your mood.
Accomplishing a modern Bohemian layout is all about expressing oneself. There are no rules when it comes to style, so experimentation and change is welcome when decorating your own space. It’s your chance to create a novel little area to reflect your personality so have fun with it!
