Flowers are a popular Boho theme, and there’s plenty of ways you can incorporate them into your kitchen decor. Check out how stylish your kitchen can look using a flower pattern mosaic print in a classic black and white pattern. 

What we love most about this bohemian kitchen design is the versatility of the hexagon shape of the black flowers and matte white porcelain tiles. The timeless look will work for any vibe, making it easy to redecorate in different themes later on without changing the backsplash.

Oriental rugs are loved for their classic design and style, with bold patterns in multiple colors. And runners are a favorite choice for kitchen area rugs because the long length and narrow width are great for placement in tight spaces like between an island and the cabinets.
