The summer solstice is upon us. The days are longer, and our inner bohemian is coming out. There are many different kinds of bohemians according to Justina Blakeney, author of The New Bohemians. There’s the modern bohemian, who favors clean lines. Then you’ve got your folksy bohemian who loves family traditions and stories, embodied in various family heirlooms and treasures. The earthy bohemian puts plants front and center stage. And you’ve got the romantic bohemian, whose house has a nostalgic touch to it, believing that is more is better. What kind of bohemian are you?
Clean lines + modern + chic. Our modern bohemian likes things to be useful and pretty. But emphasis on the useful. Free spirited, but structured, our modern bohemian loves things to have that put together look, without trying.

Colors and patterns. Its the epitome of modern boho. This coffee table is designed to be mixed and matched for an eclectic, yet cohesive feel. A modern boho feel.
Your folksy bohemian will often be found decorating with family heirlooms, treasures from travel, and things with a special meaning. Like that pillow you got in Inida, or that painting from South America. If you’re going for folksy, we’ve got you covered.

The earthy bohemian is all about the natural look. Bringing nature and bright green plants into the home is key. And we agree, its a transformative look.

The Romantic Bohemian
The Romantic bohemian is all about the more is more look, and loves things that bring back memories.
Whichever category you fall into, we agree that there’s a little bohemian in all of us. In the heat of the summer, channel your inner boho with BOXHILL and enjoy the long summer days.
