Bohemian Style Tip: Embrace the Handmade. Just as the entire style itself is focused on the sense of unique individuality, handmade items are a perfect component. Really, no two handmade items are alike. Whether the handmade comes in the form of textiles, a braided rug (photo), a sculpture, or an oil painting on the wall, it doesn't matter. The important thing is that the feeling of individuality supersedes any prior notions of decorating dos and don'ts. Bohemian Style Tip: Less is Less, and More is More. As if to pack a space with as much personality as possible, Bohemian style encourages a sense of stuffed-to-the-brim. This mimics a feeling of overflowing with life, in a sense. An interior that embraces Boho-Chic should appear busy, almost chaotic, and yet confident and happy in its fullness. Cover the walls with beloved items, fill surfaces with textiles and color, and layer, then layer, then layer again.
Bohemian Colors. There are no rules when it comes to bohemian decorating, yet warm earthy colors are quite common, as are metallics. You'll want to think brown, terra cotta, gold and other colors in that family. Jewel tones like saturated purple, fiery orange and electric blue often make appearances in accessories like tapestries and art. The key to using color in bohemian decorating is to think warm. White has no place in a bohemian room. Be sure to mix lots of patterns and don't be afraid to use colors that wouldn't necessarily go together in a conventional way. Layer throws on top of furniture and try hanging tapestries and area rugs on the wall. Bohemian Decorative Materials, the key to using materials in this style of room is to mix and match. Use natural materials like burlap and sisal and mix them with silk and chenille. The materials should have a slightly worn look (not damaged, but not shiny and new either). Everything can have fringe on it – from pillows to curtains to lampshades.
Namely, retro furniture was popular in the decades of 1950s, 1960s, 1970s. Recently, the industry has added the 80s to the list. When you ask "What is retro style?" you should expect to see authentic furnishings produced in the past. In recent years, though, you will also find newly made furniture that was produced to have a retro look. Retro implies a recent past, though, according to modern definitions of the word. The concept of being retro, though, differs from the idea of nostalgia. With nostalgia, looking to the past brings up positive feelings and evokes memories reminiscent of a certain time or place. Retro, especially when it comes to furniture, can evoke negative emotions. People may wonder why they ever had a shag rug, which was popular in the 1960s but not in modern times. In fact, a particular item that is retro may solely have defined an era, while others have evolved into our modern, everyday furnishings.
