ISLAND/BOHO THEME BEDROOM

VACATION STYLE.jpg

Picture this.

You plan an foreign vacay with a group of friends to an island off the cost of thailand. You booked the room on airbnb and instantly fall in love when you arrive. So much that when you get back home to your apartment, you want to re-create those boho/island vibes and revamp your space.

You just don't know where to start? 


 

Let's start here.

Chanel your inner Frida Kahlo and think about if she was living somewhere in Brooklyn, what would her apartment look like.

STEP 1: TAKE SOME COLOR RISKS.

GREEN, YELLOW, RED, PINK. THIS IS YOUR TIME TO DIG DEEP AND THINK "WHAT WOUD FRIDA DO?" THEY SAY THE WORLD OF COLOR IS WHERE BOHO'S FREE THEIR MIND.

STEP 2: YOU NEED SOME ART BABY.

THAT'S RIGHT. ART IS THE KEY TO MAKING THIS ROOM FEEL AUTHENTIC AND CULTURED.SO EITHER COMMISSION YOUR FAVORITE ARTIST TO PAINT SOME UNIQUE PIECES OR BUST OUR THE PAINT AND PAINTBRUSHES AND CREATE YOUR OWN MAGIC. THIS COULD ACTUALLY BE A FUN PROJECT AND A FUN NOTE TO TELL YOUR FRIENDS THAT YOU PAINTED THIS AMAZING ART.

STEP 3: IT'S ALL ABOUT THE GREENARY.

YOU NEED SOME PLANTS. WELL, YOU NEED ALOT OF THEM. HIT YOUR LOCAL NURSERY AND STOCK UP ON SOME PLANTS AND GREENARY TO BRING THE TOPICS TO YOU. A GOOD PALM TREE OR FIG LEAF WILL DO JUST FINE HERE.

STEP 4: PRINTED RUG

I FEEL LIKE EVERY TROPICAL HOTEL ROOM OR AIR BNB I'VE BEEN IN HAS A EPIC PRINTED RUG. HIT JOSS AND MAIN OR WAYFAIR AND FIND A PRINTED PERSIAN RUG. NOTE: MAKE SURE THE RUG IS BIG ENOUGH THAT ALL FOUR LEGS OF YOUR BED TOUCH THE RUG.

STEP 5: YOU NEED SOME HAND CRAFTED WOODEN PIECES

OKAY, YOU CAN KIND OF FAKE IT HERE. THERE ARE SOME MANY BAMBOO LOOKING BEGS AND ITEMS IN THE MARKET THAT EVEN IF IT'S MADE BY A BIG CHAIN RETAILER, IT STILL FEELS LIKE IT'S HANDCRAFTED. THE ALTERNATIVE IS HIT YOU LOCAL FLEA MARKET AND GET SOMETHING THAT IS LOCALLY MADE. EVERY CITY IS GOOD FOR A GOOD SATURDAY FLEA MARKET.
