First a little bit about the bohemian design. It is for people who think outside of the box. Does that sound like you? It dates back to the 1800’s in Europe and was used to describe a lifestyle of artists, wanders and gypsies. It was also used to describe people that did not believe in the political and social views of the time. Still sound familiar?
The design has transformed over time to become an eclectic mix of several different time periods and cultures. A boho interior design includes a mix match of different natural textures, flowy fabrics, soft calming colors mixed with vibrant colors and bold prints. The style does not follow traditional interior design rules in fact it is all about mix matching and combining a lot of different elements.
The modern boho chic style nursery is all about a calming soft color pallet, mixed with one or two vibrant colors, natural textures, plants lots of feathers and maybe even a deer skull or two, …if you like that kind of thing. Read on to discover the 9 steps to get a Pinterest Worthy Boho Nursery for your baby.

Step 3- Ok now let’s decorate the walls. Let’s start with some macramé Wall hangings. Are you familiar with macramé? It is a textile produced by knotting techniques. C’mon people what says boho more than macramé?
Macramé Wall Hangings
To get the look: Choose from a traditional macramé wall hanging or try a macramé mirror, plant holder, banner or dream catcher for a unique look. For a baby girl’s room check out the beautiful floral wall hanging below for a soft feminine touch.
