A Beginner’s Guide to Boho Glam

Boho glam, in all it’s eclectic, lavish glory, is hard to define. One of the newly named style kids on the block, boho glam takes best of laid-back bohemian style and melds it with glitz and glam to create a look that’s altogether perfect. Create the look with these five tips:


 

1. Go with the flow.

 

One of the secrets of boho glam is that everything goes together, even if it doesn’t match. And since beauty is in the eye of the beholder, you can make just about anything go together since it’s your home and a representation of what you enjoy.

 


 

2. Don’t shy away from color.

 

This is where the glam part of the equation comes in—shiny metals and vibrant hues scattered throughout a room add an instant level of glam even if everything else screams boho.

 


 

3. Mix high and low.

 

Part of the fun of boho glam is mixing and matching pieces from both styles to create a look that’s uniquely your style. This means you can buy that ridiculously over-the-top glamorous coffee table and still use those candleholders from the thriftstore.

 


 

4. Layering is your new best friend.

 

May no seat go without a throw pillow or blanket. And may no table be unadorned with knickknacks and books.

 


 

5. Forget about tradition.

 

Boho glam is a relatively new style and part of the fun of it is that there are no rules. Whatever “traditional” styles or rules you’ve heard don’t necessarily have to be followed to create an incredible style.
