Boho Style Home Accessories You'll Love
Hello everyone - I hope you are doing great! You may have noticed something different when you visited the blog today - it's all new! We have a brand new decor8 with lots of content living on the front page now that is not only very visually rich, but helps you to navigate the site better. I'll detail in a later post about why we changed platforms, the experience of moving 11 years worth of blog content over, and lots of other details that may interest you. But first, let's talk about this lovely little company I found in Scotland called Bohemia Design.
Bohemia was founded by Jenny Lockton over a decade ago after she'd spent years working globally with artisans. Combined with her excellent design eye and love for quality, Bohemia Design was launched in 2006 so she could collaborate fairly with these artists and designers while also serving her clients with only the best products for the interior, as well as some fashion accessories.
About their small company based in Edinburgh, Jenny says, "We design unique collections of fashion and home accessories and work in ethical partnership with artisans in Morocco, India and Turkey to produce contemporary handcrafted goods with an authentic soul."

I recently had a chance to obtain some products from Jenny's company for review under the agreement that if I loved them, I could review them on my Instagram (and keep them). If I didn't, no worries, I would return them and never share on my social sites. Well, I liked what came in the post so much that I decided to review on my blog and Instagram because if you love Boho Style, you need to know about this shop.
First let me say that good quality is not so hard to find, but superior quality is. There are tons of shops selling Moroccan leather pouffes and slippers so I was hoping that Bohemia Design was a step high above the rest because the last thing we need is more of the same.
Happy to say, when the Moroccan Leather Tile Pouffe in soft pink, the Blot slippers and the Arizona Hammam towel arrived, I was overjoyed. The pouffe (I ordered two for my living room) is my favorite - the leather smells so good and nothing like the smell of the ones I've sourced in the past where the leather was such poor quality that the smell of it was horrible. I ordered pouffes from Egypt once on eBay in 2007 and they made my house stink so bad for so many months (I was waiting for the smell to go away, it never did) that I had to throw them away.
Another important point about the pouffe is the color. I opted for the soft pink which is the prettiest pale pinky peach ever. I've never seen a pink pouffe in this exact share. I'm very particular when it comes to pink. You must know what I mean. It's one of those colors that can go wrong in the home very easily (outside of kid's room decor). This pink is just gorgeous.
Needless to add, but happy to say so again, I really love Bohemia Design and their products. Jenny was so nice to email and so friendly. Their website is loaded with fashion and home accessories so you really should check them out. Maybe you'll want a pouffe like mine, too.
