The Bohemian gift guide. Eight folklore, vintage and handmade items on Etsy

Minimalist Scandi? Wonderful. But my house usually looks like a colourful bomb site, so I’d better stick with the theme. I love colour and pattern and what better way to brighten up the dark winter than to gift or receive some bold handmade or vintage items for your home or wardrobe. Looking for something bohemian and folklore? Here is what I found for you on Etsy!


1. Snuggle up with a Velvet Floral Cushion
