While traditional bohemian décor brings to mind rich color and dark cozy rooms, the new Boho chic takes a light and airy approach, embracing neutral palettes and open spaces. Whitewashed walls and natural wood floors provide a clean, gender-neutral canvas on which to layer colorful textiles and eclectic accessories.

2. Bold Bohemian Accents

A beautiful houseplant brings a breath of fresh air to any space. If your nursery is large, a dramatic potted plant can make the perfect statement. Short on space? Try poking colorful cacti or tiny terrariums of succulents onto shelves and other out-of-the-way places or use them to create a living wall or mobile. Hanging plants are another excellent option and have the added benefit of being too high for curious hands to reach.Some plants—even common houseplants – can be harmful if ingested by children or pets.1 Before you buy any plant for your nursery, do your homework and make sure it’s safe.

5. Cozy Textiles
