Ideas to Try:

Animal art. Black-and-white photos and evocative paintings with animals nod to nature and can warm up empty walls for fall by adding a bit of boho drama and intrigue.

Soft, fuzzy rug. A high-pile rug with extra tufting adds major comfort and cozy underfoot. One with a unique, eclectic design will blend seamlessly in any bohemian interior.

Earthy green notes. A sprinkling of sage green accents is a subtle way to bring autumn indoors. You can even decorate with fall bounties, like eucalyptus and purple pumpkins.

Whether it’s velvet or wool, lush textiles and heavier fabrics will take any boho living room from light and airy to totally cozy.

Ideas to Try:

Shimmery velvet pillows. Work in a crushed-velvet pillow or two, which will lend rich texture and luxurious shine to a room. Velvet, in all forms, is always a plus for fall decorating.

Heavy drapery. Curtains are often overlooked in interior design, but they’re hands-down the most important fall update. Go with thicker wool (or velvet) drapery to keep out any cold crafts.

Whimsical woven touches. Because fall demands lots of textures, a few woven accents, like baskets or a rattan chair, will bring in an airy note and a modern bohemian lightness.

Pieces that emphasize different shapes and motifs, both big and small, altogether make for a boho living room display that feels stylishly fall.

Ideas to Try:

Colorful ephemeral art. Whether it’s a set of butterfly prints or a series of scientific drawings, art depicting ephemera has a way of inviting an Old World feeling that’s perfect for fall.

Patterned furniture. No modern bohemian interior is complete without a statement cabinet that’s boldly eye-catching. Pair it with ephemeral art and accents to give it a layered, warm look.

Small sculptural details. It’s often the little things that round out a room for fall. Try adding faux greenery to a textured vase and swapping in pom-pom pillows for seasonal finishing touches.

modern bohemian living roomPlay Up Natural Elements

A fireplace spruced up with botanicals and small boho accents is a simple way to usher in a feeling of fall and transform any hearth into a focal point with a modern bohemian look.

Ideas to Try:

Lush fall greenery. Spreading botanicals, greenery, and orange stems across a fireplace is one of our best-kept fall mantel decor tips. Arrange it like a centerpiece on a table. Go big.

A macramé garland. An unexpected way to warm up a boho living room is with a textured conversation piece, like this macramé garland or a framed textile fragment, which make for perfect fireplace accents.

Vintage-style home decor. Mix antiqued accents, like wood candlesticks and old books, for a curated fall boho look. It’s one of our favorite fall decor ideas you can’t go wrong with.

modern bohemian living roomBring In Autumnal Notes

With a modern bohemian living room, all it takes are warm accents that nod to the colors, patterns, and textures of fall to make it a cold-weather-ready gathering spot.

Ideas to Try:

Orange cushions. Shades of orange, from sunset to rusty terracotta, are fall hues that are perfect as throw pillows. They’ll bring a burst of autumnal style to any bohemian interior.

Seasonal geometric rug. If you’re not a fan of the soft fluffy white rug, a geometric natural-fiber or wool rug in a warm tone is a great alternative, as it adds warmth and sets an autumnal tone.

Patterns in faded hues. Try layering a boho living room with prints and motifs in earth tones throughout its interior design. It’s a subtle way to add chic visual interest while signaling fall.

modern bohemian living roomLayer In Pops Of Red

Whether it’s vermillion, crimson, or cherry, shades of red in small, stylish bursts will liven up any boho style space with a colorful fall vibe.

Ideas to Try:

Neutral furniture. Instead of bright and sculptural furnishings found in modern bohemian interior design, pare down with pieces in natural tones and neutrals to allow accents in fall hues to take center stage.

A bright patterned rug. A classic bohemian design staple, a warm-colored rug with bright notes of red is an easy way to guarantee a fall look that’s at once light and eccentric.

Florals and fruits theme. For a whimsical boho approach to fall color and pattern, mix florals and fruits in autumnal colors as a theme. Try combining gourds, pears, and abstract flower motifs in shades of red.

modern bohemian living roomSpotlight Artisanal Decor

Handcrafted furniture and home decor often have a tropical boho look and exude a natural warmth that translates across all seasons in a bohemian interior. Just style them up for fall.

Shop This Look

Ideas to Try:

Bold-framed mirror. A sculptural mirror design makes for a bohemian decor staple that’s chic throughout all seasons. In the fall, position a round mirror where it can reflect the autumn light.

Antiqued cabinet. An intricate hand-carved console cabinet has perennial appeal in a modern bohemian living room. Pair it with other handmade accents to play up its warmth during fall.

Various textured vessels. Focus on earthy materials when styling handcrafted furniture. Think a wooden bowl, a ribbed ceramic vase, or a natural-fiber basket, all of which add an artisanal feel.

modern bohemian living roomGo For Jewel Tones

A tried-and-true color palette for fall, jewel tones are often also found in the modern bohemian living room and can easily be elevated with fall textures.

Shop This Look

Ideas to Try:

Plush and printed pillows. From amber and amethyst to emerald and topaz, piling on patterned, jewel-toned pillows is the easiest way to elevate a boho living room with a luxurious fall look.

A colorful sofa. Take jewel-tone all the way with a statement sofa in a color that dazzles. It will add major comfort and a bold look, which you can easily balance out with a neutral rug.

Layer up with rugs. Cozy up for the season by pairing soft and durable rugs. A Moroccan rug is a staple in bohemian design and ideal in the fall. Ground it with a natural-fiber for a bold pairing that lends tons of warmth.

Icelandic Interiors: Bringing the Nordic Look to your Bedroom

Recently we’ve found ourselves daydreaming of taking a vacation to Iceland. We can’t stop obsessing over the land of majestic mountains, cascading waterfalls, and the fluffiest sheep and reindeer. And while Iceland’s outdoors are a marvel in and of themselves, their interiors are just as stunning.iceland_3

Images of bedrooms with clean lines, a modern Nordic edge, living rooms chalk full of natural materials and neutral color schemes fill our social media feeds and Pinterest boards. And since a trip to Iceland isn’t in the cards (yet) we decided to bring these interiors to us with our latest Icelandic Bedroom collection!

Here, simplicity is the name of the game while materials and color help create a space that feels both informal, welcoming, and elegantly designed. Read on to learn how to get the Icelandic bedroom look and shop the collection below!

How to Create the Icelandic Bedroom Look:

 

Build your base:

  • Capture the Icelandic aesthetic by opting for foundational pieces that feel both simple and hearty. We love the clean lines of Pottery Barn’s Farmhouse Canopy Bed frame especially paired with the simple, yet slightly eclectic shape of the Tanah Nightstand (Anthropologie).

 

iceland_5Create a neutral color scheme:

  • Essential to this bedroom is the connection to Iceland’s majestic landscape. Help foster this in your space by creating a neutral color palette inspired by Iceland’s scenery. We opted for an elegant collaboration of browns, greys, blacks, and creams like West Elm’s Colca Wool Rug.

 

iceland_04

Go natural:

  • Bring the Icelandic terrain even more into your space by incorporating furniture and accessories made of natural materials. Raw woods, chunky knits, fluffy sheepskin pelts, and braided wool and jute are all great choices. We especially love the Emmerson Reclaimed Wood dressers (West Elm) and the Antler Pendant Light (CB2).

 

iceland_1

Make it a room with a view:

  • Ok, easier said than done, but one of the most stunning parts of Iceland is the dramatic landscape! Since we can’t really bring Iceland to our windows, we opted for art that captures its beauty instead. We love the photographs by Robert and Tiffany Peterson from Artfully Walls, special shout out to Breiðamerkurjökull Glacier Field and The Black Church of Búðir!

All that’s left to do is grab a hot cup of coffee, a fluffy blanket, and maybe a cat and snuggle up and enjoy your Icelandic bedroom retreat! Staycation done right.
