When I was first trying to decide what my decor theme was going to be, I knew what I wanted it to look like in my head, but couldn’t put a name to the style. I knew I wanted neutral colors, fluffy pampas grass, lots of greenery, wood, banana fiber, and macramé all throughout my abode. But, I wanted all of it without the “more is more” technique usually associated with Bohemian flair! Think free-spirit vibe, minus the bold color scheme of puprles, golds, and maroons. Plus, no Moroccan leather poufs. As awesome as they are…

Now, thanks to countless hours on Etsy and Pinterest, I was finally able to nail down the aestheic I would painstakingly furnish and accessorize my home with.

Next came where to best find my boho minimalist knick-knacks. My massive furniture pieces came from Wayfair, by the way. But what makes a house a home are the novelty items strategically places in them. So to make it a little easier for the next Bohemian dreamer looking for ways to decorate while keeping things simple, here are five stores to get you excited about making your home cozy and positively you!

Urban Outfitters (UO):

Shopping here, you’ll run into a lot of “out there” things. But once you stumble upon that one “have to have” item, you’ll be sold on this retailer! Be sure to download the app because there is much more on there not sold in stores. Want to start small? Grab some ivy string lights. UO is also big on astrology. And what better way to put a boho spin on your space than a neutral-colored tapestry, an LED sign representing your zodiac sign, or art prints.

TJ Maxx:

Cherish finding those one-in-a-million hidden gems? TJ Maxx is your go to! This retailer will be your best bet for when you’re looking for the perfect coffee table set up that looks straight out of a catalogue. Be patient shopping here, though. And if you see something you might want, go ahead and get it! Chances are it won’t be there the next day.

Home Goods:

Home Goods is much like TJ Maxx (and owned by the same company – TJX Companies). Just simply with more to choose from.

Target:

Go in for one thing, come out with something(s) totally different. That should be Target’s motto. Everything from their Threshold collection, to Joanna Gaine’s Hearth and Hand with Magnolia collection, the earthy minimalist possibilities are endless and very affordable.

World Market:

Their home section has the ultimate lamp and basket selection. World Market also boasts a killer art section, but you will pay a pretty penny for it. Definitely grab your pampas grass and egg chair from here, though!

Out of all of the other retailers, World Market has the most relaxing environment to shop in. Personally, I’ve snagged a number Hamsa hands and Buddha pieces from here that have transformed my living room!

Never forget to use Etsy and Pinterest to your advantage, as well. However that’s a whole other rabbit hole…
