Coachella. Lollapalooza. Burning Man. Bonnaroo. Musical festival season is upon us. Don’t want the party to ever end? It’s easy to incorporate festival flavor into your home year-round. Festival décor keeps that free-spirited vibe alive and lets you embrace your inner (and outer) wild child. It’s what you get when Bohemian décor and a unicorn fall in love. It’s bright, it’s fun, it’s a little shabby chic. But the best thing about this style is that it’s nearly possible to overdo. This unique trend really gives you room to play. Read on for tips on how to get the look.
Hip, hip, hooray! Pom poms and tassels are officially back. This medium is perfect for a weekend DIY project. Try making your own wall hanging or mobile, or, use them as accents on pillows and curtains.
Festivals happen in technicolor. Use plenty of exciting, outside-the-box colors when decorating in this style. For a more minimalist look, use standout colors in prominent places where they’ll really pop. Or take it full-blown eclectic and turn your home into a rainbow. It’s your party!
The festivals are about the music, after all. Pay homage to your favorite artists and love of tunes by choosing musically inspired accessories: a minimalist memory board in the likeness of a fret board; vinyl record wall art; quotes that celebrate the power of music; lyrics from your favorite songs. The list goes on and on.
Banners, Drapes, and Tapestries
Flowing fabrics are a must. But, festival décor lets you play loose and fast with the definition of “fabric.” Knits, paper, ribbon, fringe. In the festival world, these are all fair game.
A Sense of Humor
The main point of festival décor is to create a space where good times can happen. Those who wander toward this style don’t take themselves too seriously, and that’s reflected in their décor.
