Tips for Using Boho Pillows

Hepburn Wool Rug by Sheridan
Wool rugs are a staple in Boho design. They’re both beautiful and soft on the feet, making them perfect decor for a bohemian home.
This wool rug by Sheridan is a great example. Handwoven in India, it bears a repetitive diamond pattern that would pair nicely with some decorative floor pillows.
The rug comes in a few different sizes, so you can order whichever one fits your room best.
Moroccan Pillows – A Boho Favorite
Essentially, Moroccan pillows are the pillows that we often place on the arms of a love seat. They’re relatively small, usually square, and come in a variety of different patterns.
When we refer to Moroccan pillows in Boho design, we’re usually referring to pillows with an African-inspired pattern. They might have a floral Persian pattern, a tribal pattern, or a tiled pattern. Occasionally, they’ll even have an Aztec or Native American-style pattern. Boho enthusiasts love layering the different patterns on their beds and couches.
The great thing about Moroccan pillows is that they make great floor seats. So, if there are too many people at a gathering to fit on the couch, some folks can use the extra pillows to lounge on the floor.
These pillows look great and serve and important function, too!
