Boho Tribal Decor- Freebie Friday Watercolor Print


Bohemian Watercolor Print Home Decor


boho tribal watercolor arrow, skull, and dream catcher wall prints





Welcome back to freebie Friday!


I've been trending some boho gold foil prints in the shop this week! Designing these are a lot of fun and it's nice to break out of the normal paper crafting I do from time to time. 

Although I am a self taught graphic artist I really hope to one day get a degree in designing because there is so much cool stuff to learn! 

So for freebie Friday I'll be giving away a free boho wall print download. But before I do I just wanted to share a few links I found with some really cool bohemian home decor ideas.

1. Dream Catchers


hanging dream catchers over the bed...catching dreams and making sleeping easy! Would love to do this over my daughters cot bed //:

I love me some dream catchers when it comes to home decor. If I was a single girl I probably would have something like this photo in my home. I especially love the lace and doily re-purposing here!

2. Pillows


Here's another easy way to get the instant boho feel: Mix and match vibrant colors and intricate patterns with a smattering of pillows in your reading nook. And don't forget the tassels--like the multicolored ones adorning Pier 1's Boho Tassel Pillow.:

There is just no way not to have some colorful pillows and rugs when going for the bohemian look. 

3. Feathers
