Boho Lighting Round Up!!

Hey Hey Hey!! Every once in a while I like to do a little round up of some of my favorite home décor items. Today were going to chat a little about boho inspired light fixtures!


The boho, or bohemian, décor style has been around for a while now and, not only does it show no signs of stopping, it has evolved over time to keep in line with current trends. The laid-back, boho vibe is achieved when we mix an eclectic selection of patterns, textures and colors together to create a relaxed, personalized and layered look. As with any design, the lighting is always an integral part of any space. Just like adding amazing jewelry to your outfit, the right lighting completes a look. The use of different types of lighting, including celling lights, wall lights and table and floor lamps, is what helps to create the prefect ambiance in a space.


Here are a couple of awesome boho inspired lighting options.



(Texture and Layering)


The draped, wooden bead design of this chandelier is classically boho but instead of the more traditional, natural finish, we're given a more modern dark gray toned bead, making this beauty really stand out from the pack. Picture it in an entry or dining space.



(Texture, Layering and Finish)


You've seen this only it was probably in a dark bronze finish with gold accents. That's because the organic vine design here is actually pretty traditional but the white finish gives it a whole new life of possibilities. Picture it in a dining space with natural wood finishes,



(Texture and Layering)


Here's another draped and beaded chandelier however, the open weave and tiered design bring it to a whole new level of sophistication, Picture it in a bright entry way or a living space.



(Texture and Layering)


The textured, gold finished, metal, gingko leaf fans here make this chandelier all feel very antique shop-ish to me. The "collected" vibe of this piece makes it the perfect accent for any boho space. Picture it in a dining space with a saturated wall color.



(Texture and Layering)


I love the look of the rippled glass on this, bound to give out ALL the ambiance when lit. The texture and layering of the pieces are quintessentially boho. Picture it in an eclectic dining space,



(Color)


I really like this ceiling mount. I LOVE the pop of color on this funky design, especially this soft pink, which is popping up all over the place right now. Picture it in a small powder room or mudroom,


(Pattern)


I love the scalloped design on this shade. It really takes an ordinary, brass surface mount and makes it a memorable piece. Picture it in an entry or hall.


(Pattern)


I know we've all seen this fixture a million times but I just think it's so perfect. The applique at the base of the bulbs give it just the right amount of style and it's available in a couple of other finishes so it can easily meet any of your needs. Picture it in a powder room or home office.



(Texture and Finish)


The crackled, ivory finish and hand applied, organic texture on this table lamp make it altogether, perfectly imperfect. Picture it as a pair of bedside lamps or on a console.


(Texture)


This classic, urn style table lamp is giving me all the boho feels with the earthy look of the taupe finish on a hand-made, terracotta base. Picture it in an entry or living space with a global-boho vibe.


(Color)


It's the finish of this one, for me. The silvery-blue, enamel color compliments the soft curves of the base so beautifully and really make the white, drum shade stand out. Picture it on a console or dresser as a statement piece.



I think the trick to a successful boho décor is for the pieces to appear to have been collected over time. Don't focus on being too matchy-matchy; instead, try to mix and match items from different eras and design styles. Shop at lots of retailers with mixed price points, including outlets, thrift shops and even grandmas house (you know she's got some good stuff over there!). Colorways should coordinate and compliment one another, materials should be natural and comfortable and remember: texture, texture, texture; layer, layer, layer! This isn't a design style that should be taken too seriously so have some fun with it! And as always, if you need some help, you know where to find me!
