1. Try an exotic tapestry.
Illustrator Leah Goren's eclectic New York abode beautifully blends boho and exotic. Midcentury furnishings, lots of natural light, and verdant foliage — like the fiddle-leaf fig that sits in this woven basket ( starting at $24.99 ) — round out the room. But it's her grandmother's parrot tapestry that's the total showstopper.
2. Or tropical art.
3. Ditch bare walls.
4. Turn to nature.
Drawing inspiration from nature, this stunning space marries raw wood and lush plants with banana leaf pillows ( $12.99 ) and drapes. And the end result is beautifully organic yet refined.
