Boho Canvas Art Trends
While bohemian wall art is natural by definition, it can also be celestial. Embrace your crystals and astrological knowledge for a boho take on a celestial trend. Get an ethereal look with soft lighting and organic details. Consider vegan leather or suede for an eco-friendly, laid-back-meets-luxury look. Hang a piece of wall art inspired by the beauty of space. Bohemian style is all about combining the past and the present, so consider a vintage-inspired print for a truly boho feel. A modern, multi-panel print is the perfect way to make a vintage piece look contemporary. Keep your space minimal if you want your wall art to stand out.
Boho Accent Wall Ideas
If you’re looking for an easy way to make your wall art pop, an accent wall is simple solution. You don’t have to go with a dark-toned accent wall to make an impact. Consider a softer alternative to white like taupe, tan, ivory, or sage. These unexpected neutrals will make your interior look creative while still maintaining a low-key look. If you want to go beyond the look of an accent wall, try painting your entire room in an unpredictable (but subtle) hue. If you choose a warm tone, go for a cool-colored piece of artwork. For cool-toned walls, a warmer print is ideal.
Modern Boho Wall Art Styles
Although bohemian style is heavily vintage inspired, boho décor has taken on a life of its own in 2022. The 1970s influenced the bohemian aesthetic with organic textiles and earthy tones. The contemporary version of this hippie trend includes some of the same elements, but also several new developments. For instance, macrame and wicker are still major boho trends. Metallics, however, are a trendy 2022 addition. Add splashes of gold throughout your space, and keep it light and bright.

Black and White Boho Wall Art
Although traditional bohemian style tended to stray away from stark shades like black and white, the modern boho revival is all about adding pops of contrast. Black and white is a foolproof combination that will match any surrounding color scheme. If you’re still working on putting together your living space, you can’t go wrong with a greyscale print. No matter what furniture or accessories you decide on, your wall art will match perfectly.
