boho style interiors As the title suggests, I’ve decided to show you how to rock a pastel boho style. I’m not sure whether there is such a style with pastels, but it is my style.

Here are 5 elements required to create a boho look:

1.Hand made textiles with texture.

My Moroccan style throw over my green sofa ticks the boxes for textured textiles, with its knots and tassels.

2. A little bit of gold sparkle.

The two cushions with gold prints are also from Juniqe. The Cactus Mustard cushion and polka dot cushion called Wren are both by Charlotte Winter. 3. Jewel tones.

Vibrant pinks, purples and oranges add interest for a Boho style look. These colours are in the flowers and throw.  4. Greenery.

Lots of indoor houseplants are essential for a Boho vibe. I have included only one plant, but perhaps could have added some hanging greens or small potted succulents.

5. Warm Earthy tones.

There needs to be a balance of earthy tones, often from the vintage furniture seen in a boho styled room.

The elements of earthiness here come from the brown tones in the throw and from the Rattan table. Once you have inserted all the elements of Boho style to your decor, then add something very sweet and pastel to create a sharp contrast.

These prints that I’ve selected, were perfect for creating an overall pastel boho style look. If a ‘pastel’ boho style interiors never existed before, it now does.

How to create a gallery wall for small spaces.

This is the landing at the top floor of our home. It is a small area surrounded by two bedrooms and a bathroom. how-to-create-a-gallery-wall-for-small-spaces I have in the past attempted to decorate this wall with a collection of prints. It didn’t work out using prints of different sizes and designs , because it made the space look smaller and cluttered.

It finally dawned on me this weekend that, to make the space feel less busy, I should take an opposite approach.

I went for simple two tone colour prints, grouped together to create the effect of an oversized art print. This completely brightened and opened up the space.

The ‘Twin Tone Play’ screenprints I used were from Lane (lanebypost.com). The vibrant blocks of colours accentuated the decor on the sideboard. small spaces gallery wall Everything looked so happy and in harmony don’t you think? Isn’t that puffin so cute? My husband bought it for my birthday last year. The vertical blocks of colour also created a sense of height in this small space. I’ve tried to create a midcentury modern vibe with my Eames bird and colourful Holmegaard vases.

So there you go, large blocks of colours can really open and brighten up small spaces.

Do you have a similar small and forgotten space in your home, just waiting for an injection of colour and happiness?

There are twelve colours in the print collection, so do take a look at Lane for your perfect combination.

Wishing you a wonderful start to your week.

I previously discovered Desenio, an online store that sells stylish and affordable art posters . See how I have decorated my daughter’s room with their beautiful pastel art prints.

It was an instant yes when Desenio asked me to curate another collection of prints. I decided on a pink and green palette. I chose this pink and gold foil ‘Make it pop like pink champagne‘ and mint green Petrol fern poster.
