What are Boho Planters?

Boho planters are planters that have been painted with Bohemian style colors (think terracotta, shades of pink, browns and beige) or have been made with geometric patterns. Whether you’re looking to embrace more color, pattern or essence of the Boho style inside your home, or outside, Boho planters are ideal!

Why we love it!

We love Boho planters because of the variety in colors and designs available. Obsessed with neutrals? Go with a planter that has a Boho pattern on! Each planter is usually hand decorated, making them totally unique. And aside from the traditional planters, the boho style also includes hanging planters! Usually with knitted or macrame style hangers. There really is something for everyone, and everyone’s tastes!

How to use boho planters 

There are a few ways you can use boho planters in your home…

Our favorite being as part of decorative styling arrangements! Colored and patterned planters with the boho style look fantastic when paired with decorative books, candles or decorative objects.

You can also use boho planters outdoors to supplement your patio – just make sure you check the planter is suitable for using outside first. Mix boho planters in with traditional terracotta planters to create a fun arrangement of planters!

It’s also fun to incorporate some hanging boho planters too!

What to watch for.

While boho planters are generally quite durable, there are some considerations to take into account when thinking of incorporating them in your home.

Any boho style planter you see advertised for indoor use, may not be suitable for the outdoors. This is due to many reasons, but the main being around the exposure to different types of weather. So always check each individual planter before you purchase to check where you can use them.

Another thing to keep in mind is that there are lots of options available which makes it easier to completely over crowd a space. Whether it’s indoors or out, keep your selection simple and cohesive so it doesn’t look or feel overwhelming.

Ways to make boho planters last in your home

Adding a completely different style of planter can feel daunting, but there are ways you can make this trend last for many years!

If you’re ready to introduce some interesting colors and textures to your home through planters – boho style planters are for you! Choose one or two boho-inspired colors that you love, and search for planters that focus on these. This will help to keep your arrangement cohesive. Supplement this arrangement with some patterned planters to break the colors up and add some texture.

If in doubt, choose monochrome patterned planters to pair with your existing styling.
