Bo-Ho - The Way to Go
What better way to give your bathroom that relaxed laid back, but still energetic, feeling than by adding a little Bohemian style flair with beautiful hand-made pieces in a variety of exotic patterns. Tessellations and geometric shapes creating patterns along your walls without overwhelming or being another boring mosaic. But the Bo-Ho style doesn’t just provide an invigorating visual aesthetic, it goes even further by featuring unique textures and one of a kind finishes due to its hand-made origins.
We know it’s a little hard not to fall in love and jump the gun right away but everything has its place. Keep in mind the unique textures and uneven surfaces characteristic in Bo-Ho style tiles mean this wouldn’t be very ideal for use on floors or shower areas. Always double check manufacturer specifications for recommended applications and uses.
