Fall semester is right on our doorstep and this is typically when we all go out and start shopping around for new home decor. Right now the trendy vibe to go for is the chic bohemian look, this means, lots of plants, cool patterned rugs, throw pillows and rustic wooden accents. Of course, saying all those buzzwords definitely resonates with the entire vibe of what a bohemian apartment sounds like but the real question is, how do we get the look, without going overboard on the whole macrame. It's actually really easy to get this look, don't be discouraged by all of the Pinterest boards that have a million eclectic trinkets. Let's just get your place started with the basics of your new apartment decore.
1. Neutral walls.
What a lot of bohemian looks have in common is the minimal wall colors, this means your place should either have all white walls or neutral tone colors. The main reason for having your walls blank is so you can focus your color scheme in your actual furniture and smaller decor. It may seem a little boring will all of the photos online that showcase fancy wallpapers or funky green accent walls, but you're literally following the idea of having a blank canvas.
2. Wooden accents.
If bohemian decor has anything it's wooden anything and everything. How you can incorporate these wooden accents is with things like your coffee table and accent chairs with wooden legs. If you are sticking to just making your bedroom into a more boho vibe, try finding an entertainment center, bed frame or dresser that has that "raw" wooden look.

A good bohemian look has either one of two rugs, a neutral/natural looking rug or a collection of Persian rugs. How you can style one or both of these two styled rugs together is by either having the natural rug stand alone as a lighter or darker color than your wooden accent furniture. The Persian rugs, you can either have a deep-colored rug that is the center focus of your room or have multi-colored and different fades on each rug paired together by layering one on top of the other. If you like the look of the layered rugs, you can actually layer the natural rug and the Persian rug together to add more texture to your look.
