How The Boho Chic Movement Is Bringing Back Southwestern Fabric

Bohemian style is known as portraying a carefree, eclectic design. Boho-chic is taking the bohemian style and bringing it together with some modern flair. Most designers will look to using furnishings and lighting to bring in the modern touches while sticking to decor pieces like pillows, rugs, art, and bringing in fabrics/textiles to the furniture to give the bohemian feel. Fabrics and textiles to consider using include those that pull from Moroccan influences, Native American, and the growing popularity of Southwestern.

When looking to add the boho look, keep an eye out for fabrics and pieces that have a nomadic vibe. This includes the Southwestern style. Combine the fabrics and textiles with wood and metallic accents.

The boho chic style is making a comeback due to rising popularity of a vintage feel, but wanting to still have a put together look. It celebrates history and culture in a way that others may not think of right away.

If you’re looking to save some money or are having trouble finding the right look for your boho chic style, you can consider doing a few small DIY projects. Here are some ideas to bring this style into your home -

DIY Macrame Wall Decor


Macrame is extremely popular in design. You can find something similar in a store like Urban Outfitters but pay triple the price that you would pay if you were to make it yourself.

All it takes is a couple hours of braiding/knotting, fabric, and a wooden dowel. Google or YouTube a tutorial and you’ll find plenty to follow along to.

DIY Reupholster


Using the right fabric is important to the look/feel of boho chic. It can be difficult to find the right furniture in store, so what better way than to have custom furniture? Take an older piece (or less expensive) and find a boho type fabric - such as Southwestern - and reupholster it! It can be intimidating, but there are plenty of DIY instructions online.

DIY Trinkets and Pillows


A jewelry or catch-all tray can easily become boho-chic with a little gold/silver metallic paint paired with a pop of reds, purples, or bright blues.

Popular Fabric Styles For Your Living Room

Trying to figure out what your aesthetic is in your home is probably one of the hardest things when decorating – especially in your living room. This is what your guests will first see upon entering your home.

Whether you’re considering buying whole new furniture entirely, or you are ready to reupholster your old furniture, you’ll need to select the right fabric. Here are some popular fabric styles for your living room –

Spill-Proof Fabrics


Have you ever sat down with a glass of red wine and somehow gravity turned off and your wine ended up all over your couch? Stains on furniture can instantly date a piece and make it look older than it actually is.

Here are two types to consider, according to Southern Living.

Solids: Synthetic suede and faux velvet are typically polyester or a blend of polyester and nylon. What makes them great is that they look and feel real, but they repel moisture and can be cleaned easily with soap and water.

Patterns: Solution dyed acrylic can provide interesting and fun patterns. They also resist fading and staining, can be cleaned with bleach, and many can even be thrown in the wash.

Leather


Leather is another fabric that is easy to clean - possibly one of the easiest. If you have pets, it’s an even better option for your furniture. There is a downside though. The nature of leather is that it can and does wear out with time. If you have pets and they accidentally scratch the couch - that scratch will typically stay imbedded in the leather and become a part of it.

Vintage


If you’re into the vintage look, but you don’t necessarily want to have a chair that looks like you pulled it out of your grandparents’ garage, try keeping the pattern more on the neutral side. Stay away from traditional looking silhouettes when it comes to the furniture pieces to avoid dating the furniture even more.
