Boho Style: The One Hot Summer Home Decorating Trend

Summer Home Decorating Trend are heating up and Boho Style Tops the list!

Boho Style is everywhere from clothing to home interiors.

My husband’s Aunt Barbara had the most amazing house! I never knew what her style was but now it’s clear, Boho Chic! She was just incredible, her eye for design left my wanting to see what she would do next! She was a master of layering patterns, textiles, furniture styles, artwork and collections of all kinds that made her house truly unique & authentic, and to me that is what Boho Chic Design is. ~ Nancy

I really think Boho Chic design is a vibe unlike any other design, it needs to be authentic.
Boho design is a commitment because it’s such a multi-layered multi-faceted collection.
It’s a lifestyle with a deep connection to things you love to have around you almost on a whim yet with great care.
Incorporating an open sense of design, color, pattern, textures and accessories that tells your story every day.
Because today you may find that perfect seashell that must be added to your collection!
Boho Style is brave, open, authentic and chic. ~ Nancy

So if this design style resonates with you or you just want to add a sampling of Boho rich elements, here are a few Boho Style cues to look for to incorporate this trendy design in your home.

Embrace your collections.

Boho Style is not for the minimalist “less is never more” when it comes to Boho Style of Design.

Yet, Boho Style has a ying and yang quality about it as well.
Collections of objects that have meaning are of utmost importance and are casually yet artfully placed.

Add a Suzani Print in deep hues like the one above then add more textiles and prints to your space.
fyi Suzani bullet points from Wikipedia:
Suzani is a type of embroidered and decorative textile.
Suzanis usually have a cotton (sometimes silk) fabric base, which is embroidered in silk or cotton thread.
Popular design motifs include sun and moon disks, flowers (especially tulips, carnations, and irises), leaves and vines, fruits (especially pomegranates), and occasional fish and birds.
The oldest surviving suzanis are from the late 18th and early 19th centuries, but it seems likely that they were in use long before that.
Suzanis were traditionally made by Central Asian brides as part of their dowry, and were presented to the groom on the wedding day.

Mix Textiles

The combination of heavier textiles like leather, velvet, wool & sisal; patterns in Suzani or Ikats, natural wood elements plus a collection of black & white artwork tells your story.

Most Importantly, be authentic.

This isn’t a style that comes in a box; it’s authentic, collected, thoughtful, free and comfortable like your favorite pair of jeans.
Actually, think of your favorite jeans paired with leather sandals, an embroidered top, a statement necklace, sunglasses, bracelets, earrings …. you get it!
