Have you ever been to a gal pals pad and felt so at ease that you just didn’t want to leave? She had the most perfect pashminas placed in the all the coolest spots, candles were lit and E.E Cummings best words were hanging in her powder room. Something about that gypsy paradise felt like a serious home to you, and you wanted it, bad Here’s the trick, boho babe. It doesn’t take much. Adorning your dream palace in all that says pure love is simple and sweet and there’s just a few ways to do it. Let’s talk about my favorite ways to make a boho house a home.
Scent. Think sandalwood, coral, coconut. The smell of something sweet can leave you feeling so totally ready to dance, completely at peace, or happy to pull on your moccasins. Sandalwood is generally used for healing, trust and serenity. Put this special oil in a diffuser or have it plugged into your HVAC. This is the scent of all scents, so invest immediately.
Scarves. Your gypsy paradise will feel like home right away once you add a colourful scarf to the back of a padded chair or your sweet love seat. Find beautiful scarves from India or Bali and wrap your home in them.
Light. Candles are a serious game changer. They add that special glow to your home like nothing else can. A soft candle will help you tap in to the romantic, peaceful place in you and it will show throughout your home. Find maple syrup, vanilla and sweet honey candles in different sizes and place them all throughout your space. Guests will feel the magic throughout your place (and they’ll wonder what that secret scent is!)
Gypsy Pieces. You’ve just got to have a few pieces that reflect your goddess heart. Maybe you picked up a special vase in Maui last April, or you flew in a beaded chair from Morocco on the fly. There are sure to be a couple of special pieces scattered throughout your dream home that speak to your gypsy side.
Sound. All yoga babes love a great playlist. This is why your place should have the best music playing low and on repeat at all times. A memorable playlist can create magic at a special dinner, that quiet night in, or catch-ups with your gal pals, so have several ready for all occasions.
Your dream home just takes a few simple touches to become completely perfect! Try these ones and more, boho babes. Is there something you love about your home that takes it to the next level? I’d love to hear all about it. Let’s talk boho interiors in the comments below!
