Bohemian style was originally characterized by its colorful and maximalist embrace of the eclectic and the eccentric. These days, boho style interiors are often mixed with popular styles such as Scandinavian, or interpreted with a minimalist touch using neutral palettes and choice accessories that introduce a subtle dose of boho design in otherwise simple modern rooms.
San Francisco-based French expat Siham Mazouz, author of the home decor book How the French Live. Says that the ideal boho style decor “layers colors, textures and artistic, travel or repurposed objects to ultimately create, almost in a happy accident, an unconventional, colorful, quirky, and outside-of-the-box decor. It’s about repurposing the old and mixing meaningful objects gathered through your personal experience. The countries you visited or lived in, and creating from scratch a personal scene. That reflects who you are, and how unique your personal experiences are. It tells your story.”
