Also known as boho decor, bohemian designs express a carefree, relaxed, and unconventional style. They are full of culture, interest, and life where no two rooms are the same. Most commonly chosen by those with creative backgrounds, these living spaces are loaded in textiles and patterns.
Bohemian decorating often includes browns, greens, grays, and whites complemented by various pops of accessory colors, such as yellows, blues, reds, and oranges. Don't be afraid to combine colors and patterns that would not normally go together, such as cordage, wicker, geometric, and traditional.
Furniture and Decor
In contrast to the minimalist and modern, boho screams diversity and embellishment. Mix and match a variety of decor pieces, such as traditional rope poofs, Turkish rugs, wicker lighting, fringe blankets, woven planters, and textured throw pillows. Similar to industrial and rustic designs, these pieces should have a slightly worn and natural look; no sharp lines, no perfect symmetry, and no glistening surfaces. You want your space to scream comfort with oversized pillows, cozy cushions, or plush chairs. You and your guests should feel relaxed and at ease.
Unlike traditional living spaces, bohemian spaces are often free of major light fixtures, instead lighting up living spaces with candles, lanterns, and lamps of various shapes and sizes. Boho and nature are almost mutually exclusive, such that every space is full of plant life, such as ferns, palms, hanging vines, and bamboo. If you're looking for a desert vibe, fill your space with succulents, cactus, aloe, and snake plants. Explore your local vintage and thrift shops for unique and one-of-a-kind pieces.
