Ever wondered what boho decor looks like? Or how to buy a boho desk? Bohemian home decor focuses on seemingly haphazardly layered prints, natural materials, and color. Similarly, many interiors with the boho look are crafted from old and new decor alike. Often boho spaces feature handmade decor, Scandinavian furniture, solid wood furniture, or mixed styles. (Almost anything goes as long as it keeps a globally-inspired design.)
To style a boho chic living room or home office, keep this simple rule in mind: Start small with a solid piece of natural furniture or decor, like a boho desk. A bohemian modern desk could be the missing element you need to bring it all together. Boho interior design has always played well with other styles — we think it has a lot to do with its globally inspired aesthetic and laid-back attitude— which means you don't need to replace all the furniture in your home before you go boho, so your wallet can breathe a sigh of relief.
