Bohemian modern

The Bohemian Modern home is a place where creativity, individuality, and a wild mix of colour and pattern meet in a modern environment. Whitewashed walls and polished concrete floors are brought to life by vibrant Moroccan rugs and wall hangings; a cosy chair made from wicker suspended from the ceiling, and a veritable jungle of house plants – clustered in pots, hanging from the ceiling or even growing on the walls. The style certainly gives a nod to ’70s chic, with its use of shagpile rugs, Swiss cheese plants, and macrame, but it stands firmly in the present day by boldly contrasting those elements with sleek modern art on the walls and polished concrete worksurfaces.

Emily Henson explores the elements that come together to create this eclectic,  colourful and contemporary look and draws inspiration form an array of real-life Bohemian homes.
