Bohemian Modern: Imaginative and Affordable Ideas for a Creative and Beautiful Home
Emily Henson’s Bohemian Modern is a guide to achieving an eclectic, contemporary look in your home that draws inspiration from real-life examples. The Modern Bohemian style is all about mixing pattern and color, textures, handmade pieces, and plants to create a stylish and unique space. Whitewashed walls and concrete floors are brought to life with Moroccan rugs, throws, plants, and artwork, while shagpile rugs, macramé, and Swiss cheese plants nod to the ’70s. Emily Henson starts by looking at the different facets of the look: pattern and color, textiles, handmade pieces, living with houseplants, and collections and displays. She also offers styling tricks to use at home and ideas for recycling and reuse. Next, a series of case studies take a closer look at Modern Bohemian homes and the people who live in them. From a restored barn on the breezy Moroccan coast to a former parking garage in the Netherlands converted into a flexible family life/workspace, Emily shows that any home can have a Modern Bohemian style.

Exclusive interviews with the owners, 12 DIY projects created by Blakeney and inspired by objects found in the homes, and a “Plant-O-Pedia” offer insight into achieving this aesthetic.

Bohemian Modern: Creative and free-spirited contemporary homes
Are you looking to add a touch of bohemian flair to your home décor? If so, you’ll love Emily Henson’s new book, Bohemian Modern. In it, Emily explores the elements that come together to create this eclectic, colorful, and contemporary look. A modern Bohemian home is a place where creativity, individuality, and a bold mix of color and pattern meet in a modern environment. Whitewashed walls and polished concrete floors are brought to life by vibrant rugs and wall hangings; a cozy rattan chair suspended from the ceiling, and a jungle of houseplants—clustered in pots, hanging from the ceiling, or even growing on the walls. The style gives the nod to 1970s chic with its use of shagpile rugs, Swiss cheese plants, and macramé, but it stands firmly in the present day by boldly contrasting those elements with sleek modern art and polished concrete worksurfaces. Emily starts by taking a look at the different facets of the look: pattern and color, textiles, handmade pieces, living with houseplants, and collections and displays. She offers up styling tricks to use at home and timely ideas for recycling and reuse. Next, a series of case studies take a closer look at free-spirited and creative homes and the people who live in them. From a restored barn on the coast of Morocco to a former parking garage in the Netherlands that’s been converted into a flexible family life/workspace, Emily shows that any home can have a Modern Bohemian style. So what are you waiting for? Pick up a copy of Bohemian Modern and start adding some bohemian flair to your home today!
