It’s easier to feel than to understand the boho aesthetic. So, what is BOHO? It is the complete opposite of minimalism. The style emphasizes the use of a range of accessories to decorate the home. They might not be in the same manner, and they might not have any aesthetic or material worth. The most important thing is that you enjoy these items and that they have special meaning for you. Combining furniture and extras from particular designs is unordinary. To lose the style’s purity because one of its key elements is blending. Even calling boho chic a style is problematic.
