My artistic journey started off by painting random colorful pieces growing up however, years later after becoming a professional artist, it became important for me to define and embrace my style of art – which in turn I realized is Modern bohemian.
Modern Bohemian or Boho decorating is for those who want their homes full of life, color, culture, and interesting items inspired by places all around the world – items that mean something to you personally even if they may seem out-of-place or even strange to others. This aesthetic flies in the face of modern sensibilities and embraces the carefree, the relaxed, and the unusual in a beautifully vibrant way.
Modern Bohemian Wall Decor Must-haves
Here’s my take on what makes a wall decor style modern boho. If you like your decor to be understated with basic/neutral shades however, this style is not for you.
1. Boho Art Prints
The vibrant style of Bohemian art will add some fun, joy & good vibes to your wall decor. My colorful pieces often feature people and wildlife, along with anything that emphasizes the power of living. Use can use my Bohemian art to breathe life into your existing decor.
Embrace Nature and infuse energy into your space with potted or hanging local & exotic plants. You can choose plants in the succulent family or plants like Monstera deliciosa (my all-time favorite) which are perfect natural additions that don’t require a lot of maintenance.
3. Faux Animal Heads
Faux animal heads made of wicker, paper mache, or ceramic — to suit your personal style and preference can be used to add an eclectic element to your arrangement.
4. Gold/Copper Statement Pieces
You can use gold, copper or bronze artifacts like the eye, or other elements you may have picked up from your travels to different places.
