GYPSY DECOR: Style Tips and Pics

neon gypsyIf you are looking to capture the gypsy vibe for your home, apartment, dorm room, or even the back of a van or camper, here are a few gypsy decor tips and pics to give you some ideas.

First thing to remember is have fun with color! Try adding a few ethnic printed throw pillows to a solid color sofa to liven it up. Maybe you have an old dresser or end table that you have been thinking about getting rid of, why not throw a bright turquoise or pink coat of paint on it to give it a whole new character?

Another fabulous way to bring a relaxing atmosphere to your space is indoor plants. I’d like to think I have a pretty cool bohemian/hippie vibe to my house, but something has just been missing. My neighbor recently invited me over for cocktails and as soon as I saw her place I knew what the missing element was….plants! She had enough to make it cozy and peaceful without being overwhelming….exactly what I have been looking for. Ironically, a few days later she left a small plant for me on my doorstep….now I just have to keep it alive. 🙂

A great way to bring ambiance to a room is with candles. Every time I go to a thrift store I look for unique candle holders. They are all different shapes and sizes, but they seem to fit together well once the candles are in place. Try covering a low sitting coffee table with a piece of your favorite fabric or a psychedelic tapestry. Then scatter the candles and holders across the table, along with a small plant or stack of books and you’re all set.

If you have any of your own gypsy/bohemian decor ideas, leave a comment and share them with everyone. 🙂

Old Skool Boho 2005

elle girl april 2005OK, so maybe not super old skool like the 60’s, but I thought these pics were so cool. Remember how Mary Kate was the Boho girl to watch? I love how she dresses now, and sometimes she still busts out a hippie headband or two, but her 2005 style is still my favorite. 🙂

I think the key to pulling off the Bohemian look is to be adventurous and a little bit eclectic. I love how the girl in the 4th picture down has 2 different prints but they go together effortlessly. And the chunky belt buckle is just fierce!

Hope everybody is having a great week. More fun posts to come!

Love All Around,
