A foodie who loves to cook, food occupies 70% of her brain 90% of the time. When not eating, Jess can typically be found buried in a book or obsessing over making NONAGON’s Instagram #feedgoals.

Although I’m a minimalist at heart, I can’t help but breathe a sigh of envy every time I scroll past a colorful and vibrant boho-chic abode on my Instagram feed. There’s just something about the haphazard mix of patterns and textures that calls to the magpie within.


Boho Home Decor

The sense of effortless cool that comes with a pair of nonchalantly layered Moroccan print rugs is perfectly primed to hit my WANT switch. So, under the pretense of helping you find the perfect home decor items to create the carefree, eclectic home of your dreams, I’m going to fulfill my own dream of putting together the ultimate boho home decor shopping list.

Kira Bowl

Handcrafted in Rwanda by the Kwizera Cooperative, you can buy these beautiful bowls from Local + Lejos – an online platform which empowers artisans around the world to grow their business, preserve cultural traditions, and create sustainable futures for their families.

I especially love how the site tells you your ethical impact when buying an item. With the purchase of this bowl for instance, you will pay for one week of health insurance for a family member. Whether you use it to hold fruit or jewelry, or even as a wall art feature, the tribal pattern and vibrant punch of color makes it the perfect touch of boho for your home.

Riad Leather Floor Pillow

What’s a boho home without the option of floor seating? These Riad Leather Floor Pillows from The Citizenry are ideal for bringing a taste of Morocco home.

The Citizenry is another ethical collective committed to developing sustainable relationships with their artisans. Their aim is to celebrate the people and stories behind the products they sell. For this particular product, the story begins with a fair trade cooperative in the industrial district of Marrakesh. Each piece is handcrafted, which means you have the option to choose custom stitch detailing if you so wish. Simply pair with a cozy knitted throw and candles for a bohemian inspired night in.

Sea Grass Storage Basket

Every home, even a boho one, needs storage. Luckily for us, these Oliver Bonas storage baskets combine functionality and eclectic style so you don’t have to sacrifice tidiness for the bohemian life.

Natural textures are the key to a boho look, and this woven sea grass material ticks all the boxes. The geometric white, blue and pink adds a playful touch, which is probably much needed when you’re cleaning up clutter.

Knotted Melati Hanging Chair

If I’m being honest, one of the main draws of a boho home for me is the ubiquitous hanging chair. There’s just something so inviting about the idea of gently rocking to and fro, fully immersed in a good book and sipping a cup of herbal tea.

In this little daydream of mine, the Knotted Melati Hanging Chair from Anthropologie most definitely takes the starring role. I’m particularly lusting after its macrame detailing and neutral tones, which add an elegant twist to this whimsical seating option. Accessorize with an assortment of colorful cushions (as below) – the more the better.

Batik Cushion

Cushions are perhaps the easiest way to inject a little eclectic cool into your space. Just make sure to opt for bold colors and clashing prints to really get that carefree boho aesthetic down.

KINShome have a fantastic range of African-inspired batik and mud cloth cushions to get you started. To ensure the prints don’t overpower your space, try incorporating neutral block color cushions into the mix.

Mediterranean Vinyl Mat

We’re not all lucky enough to have ceramic floor tiles at home, so let me introduce the next best thing.

This Mediterranean-inspired vinyl mat from Food52 is especially designed to sit in the most high-trafficked areas of your home. It’s made from three layers of vinyl for extra durability. What’s more, the ink is tattooed into the center layer so you don’t have to worry about it rubbing off with use. Overall its functional and pretty, so count me in.
