I’m excited to be sharing my Boho Christmas Decor with you today.  I’ve been working on decorating my basement family room all week, and today I’d love to give you a tour with all my finished projects, and Christmas decorations.  This space is giving me so much joy.  I hope you love it too and that it gives you lots of boho Christmas ideas you can use in your own space this year.

Black and White Boho Christmas Family Room

This room is one of our favourite spots for hanging out as a family during the holiday season.  It’s so cozy with the fireplace on.  We often watch movies down here together, especially at Christmas time.  This year I thought it would be fun to do a black and white boho theme for the holiday decor, and I absolutely love how it turned out. Most of the projects were DIY, and by using a lot of decor I already had, this years decor was very budget friendly.  I love boho decor, and I also love neutral Christmas decor.  Our black and white boho Christmas turned out so great!

The Boho Christmas Tree

Let me start the tour with the centerpiece of any Christmas decor, the tree.  This beautiful Starlight Mountain 6′ Green Spruce Artificial Christmas Tree with 400 Clear Lights and Metal Stand is from Wayfair Canada and I love it.  It looks so much like a real tree, it’s perfect for the boho look.  And I love that it’s pre-lit.  No more struggling with cords of lights for me, like I have the last couple of years.

I decorated with lots of homemade boho Christmas ornaments.  The macrame Christmas ornaments are a fun DIY.   You can read all about the tree, with links to all the tutorials to make all the macrame ornaments here.  We used lots of natural and earthy ornaments like feathers, mushrooms, and pinecones.  You can find the wood ball boho handmade ornaments tutorial here.

I set the tree up in a beautiful macrame basket, and added some sheepskin and faux sheepskin rugs to the base for lots of texture. I love this alternative to a traditional tree skirt.  The macrame basket gives the perfect boho feel.  The owl tree topper is a real statement piece, and the perfect finishing touch for our tree with all the earthy elements.  He’s just a regular owl decoration, that we wired onto the top of the tree, and he looks so perfect.

The Sectional

Over on the comfy couch we’ve piled on all the black and white cushions to go with our black and white boho color palette.  The throw pillows and blankets have lots of fringe, tassels, and pom poms for different textures for the boho vibe this Christmas season.

We made the fun “Fa La La” one and added some wooly tassels to it.  You can see the full tutorial on how to make the Fa La La cushion here.

Coffee Table

In front of the leather sectional sofa, is a toy box/coffee table.

I picked up all the candle holders at thrift stores and then painted them with a dipped effect, you can find the tutorial to make your own here for a similar look.  Lots of candles are always such a great idea for your Christmas decorating.  They add such a cozy feel to any space.

I’ve also added in an antler we found on a walk in the woods, and some wooden beads.  The boho style loves to incorporate natural elements, and natural wood so these are both perfect.

Boho also often includes brass and copper, so the candlestick holders, and this little brass bowl I found thrifting the other day are perfect.  I filled it with some oreo candy canes.  

There’s also a book waiting for me to read it –Nigel Slaters “The Christmas Chronicles: Notes, Stories and 100 Essential Recipes for Winter”. It’s the kind of cookbook you really can read.  It’s filled with daily entries, sweet stories, and recipes to try for a delightful winter.  It really stresses embracing the season of winter, and enjoying all the good it has to offer -good advice to someone who lives in Canada and hasn’t always loved winter in the past.  I asked my husband for it for Christmas last year, and only got a chance to read a little.  I’m looking forward to sitting down with it and a cup of tea soon.

Black and White Boho Christmas Fireplace Mantel

The fireplace is all dressed up for Christmas with lots of bottle brush trees, and a beautiful full fringe garland.  I used a lot of beige and broke it up with pops of black.  I love the neutral colors. The fringe is a great way to get the look of a macrame garland.  Look for it at your local fabric store, and buy it by the yard to fit your mantel.

The stockings are looking great with their special tassels.  I the stocking tassels from some yarn and wood beads.  They’re on of my favorite DIY ideas.  They’re perfect to add lots of boho charm to the stockings, but they’d also be a great addition to your bohemian Christmas tree, or as present toppers.  I love the paper mache deer head, and his boho makeover.  I wrapped the antlers in yarn to add texture, warmth and interest.  One of the great things about the deer heard makeover is that you can remove it later if you wish.  You can read all the details of the Boho Christmas Mantel here.

Beside the mantel, the shelves continue into a tv unit.

I’ve decorated them with some beautiful lanterns.  One set feels very Moroccan.  A well traveled, eclectic look is an important part of the boho look, so these lanterns are perfect.  I’ve repeated the little bottle brush trees here, and added in a disco ball for a little eclectic fun.   Disco balls always feel like the perfect boho touch, and are one of my favourite boho Christmas decorations. The “bo ho ho” light up box is another easy and fun addition to the space.  And just a couple of plants because boho always equals plants, as part of that earthy feel.

Other Side of the Room

Beside the couch there’s another comfy chair -a kijiji find years ago.  It’s warmed up with a pillow and blanket.  And on the side table a very simple arrangement of a birch bark Christmas tree, a candle on a vintage brass saucer, and a feather.  What my sister always likes to call “simple perfect”.  Feathers are a great thing to include for a boho look.

Boho Reading Tent

And last, but certainly not least behind the chair we created a fun little play and reading nook.  My girls have loved spending time here with Christmas books.

One of my best boho Christmas decor ideas was this little tent.  I made the little boho Christmas reading tent out of some tall narrow birch logs I cut down in the forest, and a couple of vintage tablecloths.  You can find the full tutorial on how to make the Boho Christmas Reading Tent here.  I think it’s one of my favorite bohemian Christmas decor additions.  The best part is that I put it together with items I already had, and I can disassemble it easily later on.

It was a lot of fun decorating this little area. Small spaces are always the best for making cozy.  I layered in cushions and a faux fur rug to make it warm and soft.  I wrapped the tent in garland, fairy lights, and pom pom garland to make it a little more magical and full of Christmas spirit.  Beside it a used a wicker picnic basket as a stand for a little snowy white Christmas tree.  On the wall there’s a really pretty macrame wall hanging art piece.  It’s from the store 5 Below, and I sewed on some little gold bells to dress it up for Christmas.  I love how this little project turned out.  Also, I layered in lots of different buntings, from the soft, fuzzy pom poms, to the handmade straw stars.  Layers = Boho and there are lots of layers here.
