The personal touch
If the decorating with meaning is something that’s important to you, the BoHo look might be for you! Add an element from your grandparents, or a memorable item from your childhood, or from the era in which you grew up will incorporate nostalgia into your look. I like to hide some of my old vintage toys in my planters around the home. Most people don’t see them, but I know they’re there and they make me happy.
You don’t have to be an artist to make your own art. Paint something and bring bright colours or patterns you love to complete your look. When getting started with BoHo style remember there is no right and wrong -it is just an expression of your creative style. Adding a touch of BoHo to your home with the bright white walls and textures and a focus on personal and unique artifacts will radiate positive vibes to all who gather.
