Boho design takes on a new look with moody paint colors, rich textures and living elements. Here’s the best ways to add this design style to your home!
A huge up and coming design style is boho decor – and while you might have an image of white rooms filled with rattan + greenery, today this post is focusing on moody spaces.
This design style is getting new attention lately as people are looking to add more richness to their previously beige walls, and more life through live plants instead of faux stems.
This design style is moody, relaxed, cozy, unique, and evokes a certain feeling when you’re in the home. Think: rattan, warm wood, macrame, and plants galore.

This account is new to me and I am getting so much inspiration from her (self described) “inky hued London pad”. This is the kitchen but you have to see all the other beautifully moody and layered spaces she shares!
I have loved seeing Jess’s style evolve over the years, and what she’s landed on now is the best yet! Her moody wall colors, rattan pieces + abundance of live houseplants sums up this design style perfectly! Follow her here.

Her interior is gorgeous but I had to share a picture of their exterior makeover as well! Stunning!

Moody Boho home decor accents:
First – before you look at a single piece of home decor to buy. Let me tell you to shop your local greenhouse first! This design style is so enriched by loads of beautiful lush green plants.
Second – shop local artisans. Or go on Etsy if you area of the country doesn’t have what you’re looking for. You’re not going to find the beautiful unique accent pieces at big box stores.
But the beautiful thing about this design style is the LAYERS. So think beyond the one-dimensional decor pieces, and see how you can layer and add to your space for a cozy, layered and textured feel.
