Bohemian Décor: Steals & Splurges

As an introvert, I am a creature of comfort whose safe haven is their home. And, as a woman who veers on the side of artsy, I am a lover of captivating aesthetics. This combination fuels my passion for interior design.

Now, add in the fact that I am a bit of a hippie —raised by a reformed free spirit who graduated the class of 1970— my tastes gravitate towards the channeling of years past. The eclectic mediums, vibrant colors, and disheveled charm of bohemian decor excite me.

Even my own home displays many elements of bohemian allure. A walk through my space would showcase dreamcatchers to marquee signs; lanterns to an overabundance of throw pillows; Moravian stars to bold bottles from foreign lands. Each item provides a texture and pop of color to an otherwise neutral room.

Unless we’re talking about my daughter’s bohemian inspired room which is so ridiculously pink, it literally glows.

Due to this passion for bohemian décor, I decided to compile a list of some of my favorite pieces that are sure to bring bohemian charm into any living space. Also, if any of you readers are like me —with champagne taste on a beer budget— I have made it a point to find items priced on both the lower and higher ends of the spectrum.

It is my hope that you find something in this article that inspires you — whether that inspiration be in the form of a purchase or a DIY project to recreate something similar to these pieces.

Enjoy!
