Earth, Sea and Sky: Bohemian Style Meets Nature

If you follow current design trends, you are well aware of the growing interest in bohemian style. Eclectic and earthy with a definite ’70s influence, the look ranges from feminine to a more minimalist approach. Today we shine the spotlight on modern boho style, especially decor that celebrates nature. Rocks, plants, the ocean and the night sky are sources of inspiration for this branch of bohemian design, and a strong geometric influence can be seen as well. Below you will find a roundup of products that celebrate the look with unique flair.


Let’s begin with the earth itself, specifically elements such as minerals and plants. Urban Outfitters’ Natural Fluorite Chime will add a modern boho vibe to your favorite window or corner. Strings of fluorite are bound together by a loop, creating a whimsical display of crystals.

Also from Urban Outfitters is this Himalayan Salt Lamp, which puts a retro-modern spin on boho style. A wooden base and an attached cord anchor the lamp and allow you to plug it into a nearby outlet. Try switching out the bulb with a colorful replacement to add an interesting glow to your interior at night.

We now move from salt to sand! UncommonGoods’ Deep Sea Sand Art is an ever-evolving landscape (or shall we say “sandscape”) that transforms right before your eyes. From deserts and mountains to clouds and rain, this interactive piece created by Klaus Bosch is a true work of art:

From rocks to vegetation, let’s turn our attention to Urban Outfitters’ 4040 Locust Trees From Below Tapestry, which features striking trees in a dramatic image that brings the forest to your interior:

Is there anything more boho modern than a geo terrarium?! This terrarium pod from Etsy shop Jechory Glass Designs is crafted from hand-cut double-strength glass. With your purchase, you also receive a tiny air plant, a small bag of ivory sand, glass pebbles and shells:

We end this section of the post by reveling in the boho magic that results when an air plant is placed on a gold-dipped quartz crystal. We’ve seen air plants on crystals before, but the gold accent is a fabulous finishing touch! Purchase one of your own through Etsy shop Air Friend:

From Earth to sea, let’s now celebrate decor that pays homage to the ocean and its creatures. This beach tapestry from Urban Outfitters features a design by Guido Montanes. When placed on the wall, it creates a dynamic window to the ocean:

What happens in the ocean after hours? The plankton come out to play! This Bioluminescent Mini Aquarium from UncommonGoods features glowing plankton called dinoflaggelates. If you keep the aquarium in indirect lighting during the day, the plankton will glow at night when the water is delicately swirled. It’s a neon sea!

On a similar note, Urban Outfitters’ Glow-In-The-Dark Glass Jellyfish Decor brings a hint of fluoro style to the room of your choice, thanks to an illuminating display of sea creature style.
