You might have noticed a lot of Boho style trending in the decorating world the last few years, and we have news for all of you… it’s not going away anytime soon. Which is totally fine with us. Warm and welcoming, Boho style is eclectic and interesting, and can be minimal or maximalist, depending on your tastes. The best part for us is that this style is awesome paired with modern furniture, which makes it the best of two worlds! So when Steve and I recently made some major changes by buying a house in Palm Springs and leasing a condo near Seattle, we knew that a modern Boho home was in our future. And come on, the Palm Springs place just has to be “Palm Springs Modern”, right? So the condo in Seattle was perfect for me to go crazy with plants, tassels and bright colors. (love!) But, we needed some awesome modern furniture pieces to keep it looking, well, modern! We also didn’t want to spend too much. (Did you catch the part where we are now supporting two homes?;)) So we turned to one of the furniture companies we kept seeing over and over again on some of the best blogger and stylists room makeovers. Article Furniture sells only online, so we were taking a chance, but the reviews were amazing, so we connected with them. The result was an amazing Boho living room space that I never want to leave. Here is our Article furniture review and some great Bohemian decor ideas to get you inspired for your own living room space! (Want to see the bedroom we styled with them too? Click here.)

Our Boho Living Room
Why Article Furniture?
Simple… 30 day money back guarantee (they will even come pick up returns!), free ground shipping over $999, and flat fee shipping for smaller orders. Plus, they had a cool white glove service that was really reasonably priced. Our furniture was delivered to our fourth floor condo, and completely assembled for us. Score. Also, as we found out doing our Article furniture review, their stuff is awesome. Especially for the price. Read on!
Living Room Boho Inspiration
When we designed the condo, we wanted lots of color, modern lines, and plenty of Boho room decor. We also wanted plants. Lots and lots of plants. This is kind of the calling card for Bohemian spaces. In the condo, our living space is pretty tiny. Our dining space is part of the room, but we wanted a larger table so that we could entertain. We also wanted a light wood tone to complement the bright colors we chose for this Boho living room space. The Seno Dining Table turned out to be just about perfect. It has subtle Mid Century lines which are perfectly our style. The grain in the top of the table is gorgeous, and this piece is solid oak. Which means, it will last. We have been using it for awhile now, and it wipes clean easily, ours seats up to eight, and it looks gorgeous with several different styles of dining chairs. You can get it in two different wood tones and three different sizes. In love with this table!
Another element we wanted in the living room were some touches of glam and sparkle to add a high end feel to this space. Plus, we needed lighting, as the condo was largely lacking in any ceiling lights. (Which I am not a big fan of anyway. The light from the ceiling is always harsh.) Anyone who has read the blog for awhile knows I am a huge fan of rose gold, and this Lissom Floor Lamp in copper definitely satisfied my addiction. When we got it for our Article furniture review, I was really surprised at the quality of it, including the solid marble base that keeps it really stable and adds a wonderful detail. (Love marble, too!) This lamp is just a little over $100. You could buy a floor lamp at a discount store for that same amount, but it would not come close to this level of style and quality. BTW, it also comes in brass if you prefer a gold tone.
Our color scheme is pretty bright, but one of the softer colors we used in the room to tone down the other strong colors was a soft pink. The Silicus side table was a piece I fell in love with at first sight. It is painted tempered glass, and sits on these glamorous gold legs. And, it’s only $99! It wipes clean easily, and the legs are stable. This may be one of my favorite pieces in the room. For all you looking for Boho inspiration, notice how our entire color scheme is taken from the beautiful Morrocan style rug, and also the other touches of pink throughout the room to create good flow.
We are in love with our Boho living room style, and we are now huge fans of Article Furniture. Huge. Funny story. After designing and styling the Seattle condo, when we finally arrived in our new neighborhood in Palm Springs, guess what I saw at the curb of another brand new home there? You got it!
