Elevated Boho Wall Decor Does Exist

Nest Casa proves that Boho design doesn’t have to mean scrappy.

“It’s not just macramé,” explains Nest Casa’s founder and creative director, Sara Colombo. Of course, Colombo refers to the infamous oversized macramé wall hangings synonymous with 1970’s counter-culture inspired home design. With those words, the design expert suggests that Boho wall decor can be anything but just a hippie den look. Today’s interpretation is equal parts earthy vibe and upscale tone.

Case in point, these hanging wall baskets from the award-winning social commerce enterprise People of the Sun. Preserving an age-old Malawi artisan weaving technique and providing fair trade opportunity, these wall baskets elevate the notion of a simple craft to high style. Also, it is a perfect example of texture. Texture, along with neutral palettes, and a carefully-curated world of color, are three chic Boho wall decor ideas to tap when executing the design idea in your own space.

Though it’s important to remember that boho wall decor expands beyond woven hangings. To demonstrate, Boho-style home decor is most commonly channeled through art, paintings, rugs, textiles, wallpaper, and other wall ornamentations, such as plates, ceramics, mirrors, and even clocks. Obviously, this is to say that mastering a Bohemian style room via the wall takes an eclectic and thoughtful mix of decor elements and bohemian-inspired objects.


If your concept of Boho style conjures up images of a space filled with dense ‘objets’ – err clutter – then you aren’t alone. However, there is an art to making this look work. For instance, the images caught by photographer Miguel Flores-Vianna (shown here) displays the interior of an unknown “Haute Bohemian” whose wall decor holds together the many elements of this typically Haussmannian room. Giving it a sense of clarity and harmony, wall hangings that are neutral in color, allow the tightly-grouped pictures to live harmoniously and not overtake the space. Chiefly, this allows the owner to combine several favorite, but disparate, items in one environment.

Of course, a neutrals’ polar opposite palette is pops of color. To point out, one signifier of Boho style is the ability to combine and mix colors other design sensibilities shy away from as general practice. For example, this Bohemian-style bedroom is epitomizes the look yet is immensely refined. It’s the brainchild of The Decorators Club’s own Alexa Hampton. To demonstrate the concept, first, notice that color provides the base hue as it is rendered in the deep purple walls. Next, layer on a variety of paintings – including tableau hung from the ceiling. It’s essential to notice the colors and the different styles of art represented in the pictures. Although, perhaps the pièce de résistance here is the dramatic bed surrounded by contrasting textiles for an added texture and pattern play that adds compelling visual intrigue to the space.

In the party barn of fellow club member Virginia Tupker, the textured Bohemian living room decor from the pillows to the wicker extends to the walls. The double-height barn rafters are the perfect places to display vertical-hanging plants dotted across the space. Distressed wainscotting hosts two coordinating black and white pictures, while the white wall above (and below the rafters) holds another pair of mix-and-matched pictures.
