How to Nail the Eclectic Traveller Trend

Lovers of a casual, boho vibe will love the Eclectic Traveller trend. Named so because it takes a relaxed approach to design and mixes keepsakes with interesting textiles, this look is easy to implement and makes a big impact. Time to feast on some visual inspiration!

Getting this look right is just a matter of combining the earthiness of the boho feel with the embellished, decorative nature of the bollywood vibe. A bit of careful consideration before you go out on your shopping expedition will do wonders!

Here are some tips on implementing the look:

  • Look for weathered furniture or second-hand finds. This look works because it feels like you’ve owned the pieces for years.
  • Steer clear of high-gloss finishes. This look is all about a raw and organic feel, so avoid mass-produced furniture.
  • Seek out furniture with curves, embellishments and ornate shapes – the more visual interest you can create the better!
  • Woven textiles are your friend! Think of stores like Oxfam or Tree of Life when you’re mood boarding this look.
  • Colour clash and mix pattern – but avoid primary colours. The tones are richer in this look.
  • Accessorise with glassware and art from your travels. This look is about showcasing your life!

    I love this style, but I’m still worried about clashing patterns. I’ve tried in the past and failed so this post gives me renewed hope. 🙂
