You don't have to give up all of your favorite luxury items or unique treasures if you stay true to the boho-on-a-budget aesthetic. This includes adding layers of rugs to your boho-themed rooms and spaces.

Mirrors and Metallic accents

Often, the bohemian decor includes mirrors. This is because mirrors are a great way to create light and open up your space. Whether you want to enhance small spaces or huge ones, large-scale mirrors always do the trick!

Besides being a fantastic and artistic way to decorate your space, mirrors are also a genuine blessing. They can be used as a simple and beautiful decoration piece to add more color, light, and fun to your mood. The bohemian-style mirrors look great because they have strong colors that always remind us of summer, like orange, white, or multi-color prints and patterns. Bohemian mirrors also carry an exotic vibe that will surround your space with warmth and happiness.

While mirrors are a great addition to enhance the bohemian vibe, adding metallic hardware and accents is the perfect way to give off a sophisticated feel in the space and still not disrupt the theme. The colors and prints associated with bohemian decor are softer and more neutral, which means that adding pops of gold is an excellent way to liven up the space without taking away from the overall feel.

Bohemian Home Decor Tips

The list above is just ways to decorate your boho-chic home spaces but incorporating all the elements together and pulling off the boho-theme home decor without overdoing it is another thing. And here are some tips below to help you with it.

1. Having a mixture of textures, shapes, and colors often makes a room look well-designed. It's like placing styles together. You have to have a rough idea of what style you're aiming for, otherwise, things can get messy.

2. Black, dark, and super dark woods can almost overwhelm a room in a big way. They have so much presence that they can easily take over the feel of what you’re trying to create. Try smaller, more refined pieces in lightish woods instead of just black or dark.

3. Plants elevate a sitting space by turning it into something remarkably more cozy and welcoming! But there is so much more to having plants in your home than just adding green beauty and comfort. And it's a must for every boho-chic home aesthetic.

4. One of the most fun things about decorating a boho-chic is the plethora of patterns available. From florals and geometrics to botanicals and stripes, there is an array of patterns to choose from. One benefit to adding a pattern to a room is that it can help highlight other textures in the space, too. Plaids are classically paired with co-cottons and other natural materials; however, playing one pattern against another can be a fun way to add a new look to an existing space.

5. Decorating your home with things that you love to look at should be enjoyable. Make your home yours by choosing pieces that appeal to you and most of all make you happy. Even if you are going for a boho-chic style, you shouldn't compromise for adding elements that you want and love as well as be firm in rejecting things you dislike and considering adding just simply because it fits the theme you are going for.
