HOW DO YOU STYLE BOHO?
There a couple of ways you can approach this eclectic look:
- You can go ALL IN, by mixing every pattern, color and texture you can think of. No holding back. Awesome!
- You can be more subtle, by just adding a few eclectic touches to your room – think of it more as a nod to bohemianism rather than the full meal deal.
With the right attention to details and the colors you choose, boho can look super chic. Often, rooms with a muted or neutral base palette with a few wild patterns are absolutely stunning and look incredibly chic!
Whichever route you choose to take, boho interiors are perfect for achieving that cozy and inviting feeling. If you look at bohemian interior design inspiration photos, the one element they all have in common is that they all look inviting.
HOW CAN YOU ADD THE BOHO-CHIC VIBE TO YOUR HOME?
Here are 7+ boho decorating ideas to get you going on your bohemian mission!
1. A VARIETY OF TEXTURES
One thing the boho home never lacks is texture. Adding texture to your room can be achieved in so many ways!..
2. LOW-LEVEL SEATING
The boho philosophy is all about kicking back, chilling out and relaxing. Floor pillows, leather poufs, soft ottomans and bean bag chairs are all great low-level seating options to have, because they invite people to sit down and stay awhile…
3. DON’T USE (TOO MUCH) BLACK
If you’re after chic bohemian decor, then try to stay away from large, black pieces of furniture or big pieces of furniture in super dark woods.
Stick with light, bright woods.
Dark woods are pretty heavy, whereas light bleached woods provide airiness and a clean backdrop for the colors, patterns and textures that you’ll be adding to your room…
4. PLANTS, PLANTS, PLANTS!
The more the better! I have yet to see a photo of a proclaimed boho room that doesn’t have at least 3 plants! Plants just give that effortless “jungley” natural vibe, and they are amazing!..
5. A GOOD MIX OF DIFFERENT LIGHT SOURCES
String lights, lanterns, funky chandeliers, candles. Use them all! I always go on and on about the importance of lighting, in any decor style, and thinking about your lighting when you’re creating a boho space is no exception.
You can mix and match whatever types of light sources please you, but I find what works best for the boho look are natural fibre pendants…
6. LAYER RUGS
Layering rugs gives you an extra opportunity to mix patterns and colors. It also adds even MORE texture to your room! Try layering a brightly patterned vintage rug over a natural fiber jute rug. Or layer rugs that live within the same color family…
