Modern bohemian is trendy inspirational style that I love, and that can be achieved on a small budget with a little imagination. It’s all about mixing different eras and styles like urban vintage, nature, eclectic, anthropologie inspired chic mid-century home decor.
The main details are: wood-tones and bright accent colours, flowers, hanging plants, colourful armchairs, a lot of cushions, mixing patterns, textiles, flea market finds and Moroccan rugs. Hammocks suit perfectly in this style, they can function as the ultimate boho alternative to a sofa.
Below are the pictures from new book of interior designer, Emily Henson, “Modern Bohemian”.
Emily then takes you on a journey around the world to visit thirteen inspiring bohemian modern homes, from a retro riad in Essaouira to a tecnicolor family home in The Netherlands. Oversized wall hangings, houseplants, boucherouite rugs, dream catchers and all the clichéd 1970s items that we would expect are very much present, but all are given a contemporary angle.
The homes featured are an extension of the owners’, who live the Bohemian Modern lifestyle. Creative, unconventional, they are bohemian in spirit, not just in style. If you would like to discover how to bring individuality, excitement or a boho modern approach to your home, then you will find inspiration and tips aplenty in Emily Henson’s captivating guide.
Another inspiring book on the right is “The New Bohemians” by Justina Blakeney. Below are some beautiful pictures from her website thejungalow.
