“One of the great things about this approach is you’re using materials that aren’t necessarily expensive or highly processed,” says Louise. It’s also a smart way to give your space that on-trend, natural feel using pieces you may have overlooked. “Materials like bamboo or wicker have that boho feel to them, but are now used in very cutting edge design,” Louise explains.
And you don’t have to stop there. Try adding plants to soften the effect, placing them on upcycled tables or even strategically placed around repainted wooden chairs. “It’s about what plants can give you emotionally and physically,” adds Louise. “They just create a nicer environment and they’re good for the soul.”
