Boho vs just rustic

Let’s talk about nature, shall we? It adds warmth, life and balances the starkness and purity of white, cool interiors. But which way will you go: just rustic or boho? Aha…I am observing a fine line between those two and here are my notes on the subject.

Baskets

I find that boho baskets are finely weaved, as opposed the typical rustic ones. The materials include slim fibers, like grass, rushes and palms. Often the look is purposely distressed to convey the boho “I don’t care” feeling.

Benches

Boho benches have usually braided or canvas seat vs wooden rustic benches.

Leather

Leather pieces have more traditional lines, found in gentleman club vs the worn out look of boho pouf just “thrown out there” with nonchalance.

Plants

Boho plants are tropicals, succulents and palms. Rustic plants bring out the image of forest in my mind: ferns, moss, see-thru containers with roots exposed.
