While it is not very deep, the shelf provides storage and a small desk space.

27. Vintage Western Raku Pottery Candleholder
While Japanese Raku pottery is hand-shaped, the intriguing sculptural curves of the handle and the overall look of this piece suggest that it was shaped, Western-style on a potter’s wheel. The blackened areas would have been created by applying wax resist to selected areas of the piece to prevent contact with the glaze. Cobalt glazes produce dark blue areas while copper produces either green or red depending on how long the piece stays in the kiln. Red is produced with a longer firing time that reduces the amount of oxygen in the glaze. Quickly cooling the pieces after they’re removed from the kiln produces the flashes of color and the lustrous gleam that appear in this candleholder. In totally Boho style, the results of firing and cooling are not completely predictable. As a result, it’s unlikely that any two pieces of Raku pottery will be exactly identical. Thus this candleholder, and other pieces of Raku pottery, make eye-catching additions to Boho décor.

The burnt orange brings the complimentary colors of the sunset into a Boho décor of neutrals and earth tones.

Use this bold, minimalist print to draw attention to the overall geometric prints found in African, Middle Eastern, and Native American designs. An irregular, mineral-like inclusion adds a suggestion of rocky texture to the two earth-toned triangles while the two turquoise triangles introduce a splash of color. Overall, the clean, minimalist style of sharp-edged triangles and the suggestion of a rocky surface enables a two dimensional print to bring a sense of textural contrast to the soft fringes and knitted and crocheted surfaces of Boho style. Hang this print on the wall, and you can draw together an eclectic collection of geometric prints from a number of cultures while adding a strong piece that also can serve as a focal point.
29 Eclectic Boho Décor Ideas to Create Your Own Look
Remember that Boho home décor is intended to be a reflection of you. The decorative items in the room should be selected because you love them, and they have meaning to you. It can also be personalized even more by adding items that give it a more feminine or some other feel. Transitioning can also be done to add seasonal touches.
Then you can add the comfortable seating and choose colors and patterns that coordinate and support each other. Add textures with rugs, throws, pillows, wall art, and handcrafted items such crocheting, knitting, macramé, and woven baskets. Layering rugs and throws allows you to add more texture and color. Creating a visual balance prevents one item or area from detracting from other items.
Lighting is another way of adding interest to the room. Choosing a variety of lighting that includes unique and vintage floor and table lamps along with candles makes Boho style different from other décor styles.
You may have family heirlooms and personal treasures you want to use, but Boho décor is also built over time as you see things that you want to add. In addition, Boho décor is fluid. Some items may be moved around until you find a place where they fit the best. Boho décor is stylish, but, more importantly, it is comfortable. Finishing the room with a selection of plants brings a bit of Mother Nature into the room.
