It’s not just me that loves a mix of ethic and eclectic, patterned and plain Ikea have also embraced the boho chic look. Against a base palette of white they have added some bright confident hues to liven up the mix as seen in this interior below.
This is Ikea’s take on holiday entertaining – chairs are mixed and matched infact a cushion is even plopped on a heap of magazines for an extra impromptu seat. Instead of slavishly following a modern or Scandinavian clichéd design they have styled this in such a way that the room gets to feel like part of an actual home. Its messy and chaotic but in a good way. Its full of stuff, which has been artfully placed to look like its been causally thrown onto surfaces. The bohemian look is probably one of the hardest to pull off since there is no formula as such and it can go seriously wrong and look like an utter mess. A few helpful words of advice from the great Dorothy Draper
“If you are collector, let other people share your pride and joy. Don’t sprinkle your collection out of sight in a meaningless jumble. Notice how groups of small objects, when they are well arranged, become important and effective. Remember that repetition is a form of emphasis. Collect what you will, but see to it that you arrange your hobby to its best advantage.”
Couldn’t have put it better myself – happy entertaining and Thanksgiving to those of you Stateside.
