Trending Now | Aussie COBO

From down under, Australian COBO aka Coastal Boho with an Aussie twist is lighting up Pinterest and Instagram with its South Pacific relaxed chic. I am personally crushing on this design style. Think neutral, white infused, layers of texture, natural woods, 70’s rattan, sage, saturated natural light and outback earth colors. Different than Cali Boho, this casual trend trades midcentury for artisan made and retro 70’s art for over-scaled black and white safari photography. COBO also feels a little like Scandi Boho.

Notable differences between the Aussie vs Scandi styles include warm-toned wood floors vs white bleached, indoors out in any space, tribal art and accessories and the use of locally sourced greenery. All three styles do share similarities and are thriving in the design world for embodying a casual elegance that exudes effortless styling, lazy day Sundays, and a laid-back lifestyle that most of us dream about. After all, isn’t that what makes a trend?
