Layer Color and Texture

Hairstylist and boho chic aficionado Augusta Wheeler transformed her Atlanta, Georgia Victorian into a stylishly unique bohemian masterpiece, a blend of thrift store gems, vibrantly bright colors, textures and plants beautifully flowing together.

Meet Augusta Wheeler, the Thrifty Hippie

Augusta's boho style extends from home to street with vintage clothing and jewelry. Check out her boho chic style on Instagram. Read on for more of her top tips to bring the new bohemian trend into your life.

Use a Seasonal Shelf Display

You can never have too many throw pillows or too much color in a bohemian palace. The shelf above the sofa brings together the room. Swap out pieces seasonally to reflect holidays or new interests.

Use an Unexpected Color

Augusta says this revamped fireplace gets a lot of notice due to its unusual color. The vibrant green is way outside the box. Combined with the fabulous thrift score mirror above, this fireplace is a superstar!

Old School Style

We like to think of it as upcycling from one generation to the next: This vintage leather jacket with fringe belonged to Augusta's husband's aunt. Augusta says that you can never go wrong with fringe.

Fall Means Boots!

A pair of well-worn cowboy boots dress up this vintage leather jacket, adding a Southwestern vibe that matches the fringe.

Warm Up a Room With Plants

Plants are one of the best home accessories and essential for achieving boho style. Augusta recommends adding plants to your space for not just visual interest but for better air quality. The plant on the heirloom organ is a philodendron Xanadu, one of Augusta's favorite plants for making a big statement.

Keep Your Eyes Peeled for Statement Pieces

Augusta scored this amazing Nefertiti bust when she went to an estate sale looking for a rug. She combined the statue with other metal pieces to create a small brass-themed vignette.

Make a Vintage Grouping

This clever, themed wall was created from baskets all collected from different thrift stores. They give the wall behind the table interest that balances out the bright hutch that sits on the wall parallel.

Revamp With Paint

This antique hutch is one of Augusta's all time favorite finds she found on an online yard sale. She scored the hutch for a whopping $30 and gave it a second life with a fresh paint job. It holds treasures from her children, plants, eye-catching thrift store finds and dinnerware.

Mix Metals, Wood and Glass

Augusta mixes thrifted copper finds with some she acquired from her grandfather. The copper displays beautifully along with other organic elements in this kitchen vignette.

Eclectic Mix

The lamp belonged to Augusta's husband's grandmother. It happened to match an existing one she already had. More vintage decor scored at a thrift store adds eclectic charm to this bedside table.

Custom Art

Create your own art for a pop of color. Augusta created the string art with a branch found at a local park. The branch-art's burst of color accents the mirrored plant holder above.

Accessorize Your Home and Yourself

Augusta's bohemian style stems from her soul. Just as she accessorizes her home with a creative, idiosyncratic blend of objects, she loves to accessorize herself with similar elements: lace, leather, metals and turquoise.
