Boho Kitchen Decor

Well lovely reader, we are past the holidays and each day the daylight hours are increasing. Our holidays were quiet as they are these days, but it's the way we like it. Big plans are in the works, I won't divulge until they're firm enough to share!

Meanwhile, this post is all about Bohemian kitchen decor. I usually don't design a full Bohemian kitchen for the majority of my clients, too European and not "new" enough looking for American tastes. But once in a while, I have a client with an older home and the intestinal fortitude to go for it! Granted, it can be crusty around the edges and sometimes disorganized, but it can be homey and kind of country in a nostalgic sort of way. Love it when I can use vintage elements and pseudo-vintage new pieces. Blend that with color and texture and how could it go wrong! 

I have included some pix of more contemporary Boho design, in particular the conservatory within a loft. Bohemian decor by definition is about using your imagination and flaunting convention. Sometimes the more contemporary or neutral or light handed use of the gendre is what a client wants. 

Notice the majority of these kitchens have open wall hung shelving, no overhead cabinets. This is an American fear most of my clients express. The old world idea of wall space above the workspace is growing leaps and bounds here, but clients still need assurance that all will be well and all their possessions will have a place.

Enjoy the Bohemian kitchen tour and see if you have a favorite:

  4. I love the romance and life in bohemian decor, especially in a kitchen. I'm hoping my own kitchen will stand among them when complete.
