How IKEA Does Boho: Our Top 21 Decor Picks — Cheap Thrills

The very essence of a bohemian lifestyle tends to go pretty firmly against big-brand commercialism, but if you’re more about the style and less about the ideals—and also looking for some cheap(ish) ways to round out your aesthetic—IKEA is, quite surprisingly, a great place to hunt. The brand’s minimal Swedish vibes might make you think eclectic decor is not to be found in the blue-and-yellow corridors of the retailer, but that’s where you’d be wrong. We picked out our top 21 home items to get the boho look at home, for less.

Years lived in: almost 2 years, renting

Because they have an almost unheard of amount of sunlight streaming in, Jean and Jeff have stuffed their one-bedroom loft apartment on the Lower East Side with plants (supported with a great collection of funky vintage finds).

A “Bohemian Bayou” Hideaway in New Orleans — House Tour

Name: Anne Yvonne Stoltze and her Ragdoll cats Teddy (who sadly passed away this summer) and Nigel
Location: Treme — New Orleans, Louisiana
Size: 650 square feet
Years lived in: 1.5 years, renting

Anne’s romance with New Orleans began three years ago during a visit for Jazz Fest, a familiar story here in the Crescent City. The unique architecture, lush landscape, and celebratory way-of-life felt just right for this Iowa-born bon vivant. It wasn’t long before she sold her house in Westchester, New York; put most of her possessions in storage; and settled into a cozy one-bedroom rental close to the French Quarter. “I drank this magical city’s Kool-Aid the moment I saw those soft warm greens of the bayou sunning themselves from the airplane window,” she swoons.

A California Contemporary Renovated from Across the Country — House Tour

Name: Jillian Gould Allstadt and John Allstadt, kids Mia and Bodhi, and dogs Bella and Milo
Location: Mission Canyon — Santa Barbara, California
Size: 1,650 square feet on a 10,000 square foot lot
Years lived in: 8 months (bought gutted and designed from NYC); owned

Jill and her husband John are New Yorkers who left Brooklyn behind for a West Coast dream. When they first started house hunting in California, they weren’t looking for a major renovation project per se — after all they were still living on the East Coast at the time. That changed once Jill caught sight of the seventies era split-level fixer upper intended to be a broker’s flip for their agent. Set high above the street, the contemporary architecture offered huge windows perfect for taking in the treetop views of the oaks and surrounding Mission Canyon neighborhood of Santa Barbara. Jill knew managing a renovation from across the country was not going to be easy, but she also knew it would be worth it.

A Mosaic Artist’s Minimal & Modern Melbourne Cottage — House Tour

Name: Claire Plummer
Location: Brunswick — Melbourne, Australia
Size: 2,034 square feet
Years lived in: 15 years, owned

It might be surprising to learn that Claire Plummer — a telecommunications analyst by day, mosaic artist by night — is a self-confessed minimalist when it comes to decorating her home. But it’s precisely this conscious decision to keep it simple with furnishings that’s allowed the amazing, one-of-kind mosaic art she creates to shine.

Alex and Laure-Anne are designers living and working in Montreal’s trendy and historic Plateau neighborhood.

With an interest in vintage pieces from older eras, the couple began searching on weekends at local auctions and online for unique items to fill their new home with.
