* The “boho chic” trend is extending beyond fashion – and into the home
* Find unique Bohemian-themed pieces on sale at Overstock.com right now
* Sale runs until July 9, with additional sales to be announced throughout summer
Summer is a great time to refresh your space, but you don’t need a team of contractors or a ton of money to make a big impact. Take it from us: the little touches can go a long way.
This season, move away from the minimalist look and punch up your prints, patterns and textures for a warm and welcoming environment at home. We like the “Bohemian” decor trend, which takes its cues from avant-garde artists, 70s-era musicians and world travelers, to create a colorful palette that works for a variety of spaces.
You don’t have to spend time thrifting to find good “boho chic” pieces either. It’s never been easier to get in on the trend. Looking for a good starting point to create that Bohemian paradise at home? We found these ten pieces from Overstock.com. Even better: they’re all on sale right now, during Overstock.com’s big Fourth of July Sale, with prices up to 70% off for basically every room in the house. (In other words, even if you’re not in the market for a Bohemian revamp, it’s worth checking out the site to see what other deals you can snag). The Fourth of July Sale runs until July 9, but if you missed this sale, don’t worry! Sales will be going on all summer long with Overstock.com. Come check things out and find some great pieces to dress up your living areas.
SPY tip: to create your Bohemian paradise, look for one or two big, bold pieces to fill your space (I.e. a great area rug). Then, find accessories that play off the colors and textures in those pieces. Don’t be afraid to mix and match – the new Boho trend is all about creating an eclectic mix of pieces that show off your personality, brighten up your space and make your house feel like an inviting retreat.
Here’s what to get.
1. nuLOOM Southwestern Bohemian Tribal Tale Area Rug
Before you even think about switching out any furniture or accessories, lay down a bold and eye-catching Boho vibe with this Tribal Tale Area Rug from nuLOOM.

2. Floral Fauna Sheesham Wood Upholstered Ottoman
We love the look of this upholstered footstool, which doubles as an ottoman or side table. Handmade in India, the piece adds some culture to your space, with a motif of a peacock, elephants and a bluebird parade embroidered over an ivory cotton cover. The seesham wood legs are removable for easy conversion to a lower stool, or foot cushion too.
The best part: this item is offered in conjunction with NOVICA – an organization that seeks out fair-trade jewelry, fashion, and home decor, to help empower global artisans. The patchwork and embroidery on this stool is all done by women in India, using age-old techniques passed down through generations.

3. Alice Gold Sunburst Mirror
A mirror is a great way to get in on a design trend, while also adding a useful addition to your room. This decorative mirror features a radiant “Sunburst” motif, in an antique-inspired bronze finish. Mount it in your bedroom or bathroom to create a focal point, or use it in your living space to brighten up your wall and add dimension to the room.

4. Layered Macrame Wall Hanging
One of the biggest home decor trends right now is Macrame, the process of creating unique patterns and pieces using intricate hand-knotting techniques. Due to the handmade process, each individual piece is unique.
This wall hanging comes from the Marmont Hill Art Collective, a group of contemporary artists and designers inspired by the possibility of unique materials. Hang this piece as a beautiful tapestry in your living room, or to adorn the space above your bed. To take the Boho inspiration outdoors, this would also work well hanging from hooks or beams in your backyard.

5. Decorative Poly or Down-Filled 20-Inch Pillow
The easiest way to try out any decor trend is with a couple of great throw pillows. This Boho design is available in four different colors, in a down or poly-filled option (The poly fill is better for allergy sufferers). We like how the pattern on this pillow is just trendy enough, without going over the top. The piped edges and corner tassels add a playful touch. Toss these onto your couch or bed to bring in the Boho vibe effortlessly.

6. Peace and Namaste’ Inspirational 2 Piece Canvas Art
The Boho trend often borrows inspiration from the practise of yoga, and we like this two-piece set for an easy yen decor idea. Made in the USA, the beautiful art piece is produced on water resistant canvas with a UV-Resistant gloss coating and then wrapped on a wood frame. It’ll bring some tranquility to your space and remind you to take a breath every now and then. The dusty pink color works well in most spaces too, adding just a touch of color to simultaneously brighten – and soften – up the room.

7. Blissliving Home 3-Piece Berber Textile Duvet Set
Here’s why we love this duvet set: you can get a duvet cover plus two shams starting at under $30. That’s one of the best deals we’ve seen for a bedding set like this. A bonus: this Berber Duvet Set totally plays into the Bohemian vibe as well, inspired by the textile art of Berber women in Morocco, with a geometric pattern symbolizing protective powers and a blessing from God.
The duvet cover is fully reversible, with a solid navy color on the back, giving you a couple versatile options for the bed. Made from 300-thread count cotton, the duvet cover and sham are super soft, long-lasting and machine washable for easy care. You don’t need to make this your primary duvet, but it’s nice to have an affordable and colorful option to swap into your bedroom decor every now and then too.

8. Safavieh Steelworks Stripes Yellow Matte Iron Stool
An often overlooked piece of furniture in your room is the trusty side table. We like this one, which gives off an edgy, industrial Boho vibe while still fitting into most spaces. It’s a great size that works bed-side or next to the couch, and the matte iron construction gives it a contemporary look and feel. The yellow is bright without being annoying; accent it with a stack of vintage books, or with a printed candle holder.

9. Handmade Moroccan Leather Pouf
This genuine leather ottoman (or “pouf”) is entirely handcrafted in Morocco and calls to mind traditional, Souk-inspired style, but re-imagined for a modern home. A team of artisans in Morocco works on each piece from start to finish, dyeing and cutting the leather, crafting the poufs and finishing each one off with hand-embroidery.

10. Mandala Tapestry/Beach Sheet
This last piece might be a little unexpected. It’s a Bohemian print sheet, and we love it because you can use this to enhance your decor in so many ways. Use it as a wall hanging, bedspread or sheer hanging over your windows. Take it into the kitchen as a Boho-themed tablecloth, or take it to the beach and lay out in the sun. Four different colors are available, and with the Overstock.com sale discount, prices start at just $27.
