Bring Modern Boho Style into Your Home

 

Bohemian styles are trending for both fashion and home decor. And it's no wonder! People are drawn to the effortlessly chic decor, made popular by coastal California. However, it can be difficult to channel this eclectic look in your home without it coming off as kitschy. Below are three tips you can use when designing a space in a modern boho style.

 

1) Layer with Patterns and Colors

If you love that "worn-in" boho look, you will want to add layers to your design. This means choosing a couple of main colors and adding plenty of accent colors and patterns. The best part is there's no limit to how many colors or patterns you should pick. You could start with bold vintage colors like mustard yellows or olive greens, or you could keep it neutral for a more updated look. Add in accent colors as you desire. For patterns, you should choose geometric or tribal designs and mix those in with your color scheme.

 

2) Keep It Modern with Great Lighting

To keep the room feeling bright and airy, you will want to make sure there is plenty of lighting. Most rooms need a combination of natural light, as well as artificial in the form of pendants, sconces, and ceiling lights. A gorgeous glass bohemian pendant light will brighten up your space and add visual interest.

 

3) Add Natural and Rustic Elements

To achieve a modern bohemian look you will want to combine multiple styles and add in natural elements. You can create a welcoming environment by including pieces made of wood, rattan or woven fabrics. To convey a rustic look, incorporate vintage finds as well as bronzed, copper or distressed furnishings. And don't forget about the lighting! Mixed materials (like wood and metal) in an updated style, like this urban chandelier, will join the whole design together.

Creating a space with a modern bohemian style is not as effortless as it looks, but with these tips and a creative eye, you can accomplish the task! If you are interested in finding the perfect lighting for your home, contact us today!

Rustic or Industrial? Exploring Modern Farmhouse Trends

Rustic or Industrial? Exploring Modern Farmhouse Trends

Whether you are looking to revamp an already existing style or completely renovate a space, Urban Ambiance can help you personalize your home. An increasingly popular home style is the Modern Farmhouse - a mix of distressed wood and clean iron lines. While both options could mesh together, they can also be separately personalized to your tastes. Let's dig deeper into this trend to find what fits your style:

The Berkeley Collection

Designed with Berkeley, California in mind, the Berkeley Collection boasts a mix of rustic appearance and a modern-boxy form. With slick bronze lines and a charcoal finish, this collection screams industrial farmhouse. Illuminating your space with an industrialized ambiance, these lighting fixtures will crown any space in your home with detailed finishes. Artistically crafted, the exposed nature of the fixture seamlessly create a statement piece, wherever you choose to place it. With eight different variations within the collection, you are bound to find a statement piece for all of your community spaces. 

The Adelaide Collection

Truly farmhouse, this collection differs from the Berkeley Collection in the apparatus around the light bulb. Trading iron for wood, these lighting fixtures boast distressed wood, honoring the look of wine barrels from Adelaide, Australia. You will notice softer edges and rounded casings with a touch of galvanized steel. The fixtures take inspiration from outdoor string lights, a popular decor trend for evening wine tastings in Southern Australia. If you prefer lighter tones, this collection will electrify your senses. With over 15 fixtures to choose from, you will find that there are lighting options for every room in your home, including bathrooms. 

Regardless of which trend you prefer, you are bound to find exactly what fits your personality at Urban Ambiance.
