9. Hand-lettered artwork.
Ok, sure, this is pretty much all the rage in nearly any design style right now, but a few great hand-lettered quotes can really make the whole room. Try out quotes that embody the spirit of boho living – wanderlust, adventuring, being a free spirit. Paint them on natural elements like a wood slice, or a piece of white cotton in a dowel hanger instead of on a canvas.

10. Twinkle, twinkle, little lights…
So you may worry that adding string lights to your room will make it feel like living in a dorm. Truth? There are so many ways to do this that are tasteful, classy and just plain pretty. Fortunately, twinkle lights aren’t just a one-size scenario anymore – you can get awesomely show-grabbing globe lights, or super subtle mini fairy lights, and anything in between. You can go big or small with your lights – adding them as accents or as the main feature, it’s totally up to you. Twinkle lights add whimsy, romance, and a taste of light-heartedness which is important to boho design.
