If you're looking for a unique and vibrant decor option, bohemian style could be for you. Inspired by nomads, artists and those who lead unconventional lives, a boho interior combines colours, patterns and textures from various cultures and eras to bring life into your home.
Though a true bohemian decor mostly relies on second-hand and vintage furnishings, there are some items you can buy new to help achieve that eclectic bohemian aesthetic. Scroll down to see the key furnishings you can shop to get the look at home.
The bohemian lifestyle is all about kicking back and relaxing, making floor cushions and poufs a great seating option. To bring a true free-spirited vibe into your home, try incorporating them into your living room decor by mixing and matching them with other seating options like sofas, armchairs and cozy hammock chairs.
In direct contrast to the popular minimalist decor trend of the past few years, bohemian style employs a more-is-more approach. Look out for any furnishings that boast bold patterns or a bright colour scheme, such as rugs and throws in tribal and Navajo designs. Remember that boho interior is meant to be an amalgamation of styles, so don't worry if the rug doesn't match the rest of your decor because it isn't meant to.
Bohemian style involves going against the grain, which means ditching things like expensive curtains and blinds for cheap and fun alternatives. From beaded curtains to cord hangings, unique window treatments will add texture and depth to your space. You can also use them in place of doors to add privacy to rooms without shutting them off entirely.
Nailing the boho look involves borrowing styles from different subcultures and time periods. The hippie movement of the 60s and 70s has been particularly influential on the style and with it, crochet. The airy texture offers a rustic look which sees it continuously back in fashion again. In fact, it's back in vogue right now so it shouldn't be too difficult to find decor pieces in the material.
Bohemian decor is inspired by nomads who share a close relationship with nature. As such, plants are a huge part of the boho style as they provide a visual connection between your interior and the outdoor world. Whether living or artificial, adding a bunch of lush greenery to your space will help to give it a chilled-out vibe. Cacti and hanging plants are especially popular in the boho trend, so make sure to look out for these.
Used in some Native American cultures for centuries, dreamcatchers have long been thought to ward off bad dreams. Whether you believe the legend, or whether you just think they're pretty, dreamcatchers lend a sense of whimsy to your decor. They also add an interesting textural element as they can be made from a combination of materials including macramé, beads and feathers.
As we've seen, bohemian style offers a kind of design anarchy where anything goes. This means you can put up as much wall art as you like, without worrying about whether or not it clashes. True boho style is meant to show off the things you've collected in your travels, so don't be afraid to fill your walls with holiday photos and art you've collected along the way. As well as adding to your decor, it will provide a talking point the next time you have guests over!
Continuing the laid-back trend, boho lighting is often quite understated, bringing a sense of calm to your space. Look for colourful lanterns, table lamps, chandeliers and candles that give a welcoming glow to your room. Moroccan lanterns are an especially popular choice for boho interior. Place them all over the room to transport yourself to a bright Moroccan bazaar.
While other decor trends recommend limiting the number of throw pillows you use, boho style is all about breaking the rules. A true bohemian room should give off a vibe of "sit and stay a while", meaning that rigid, uncomfortable seating is a definite no-no. Add comfort to chairs and lounges by piling on brightly coloured throw pillows with Morrocan-inspired designs.
Bohemian style is quite dreamy in nature, making bed netting the perfect addition to a boho-styled bedroom. The breezy net curtains give a sense of escape from the world around you, while adding yet another textural element to your space. If investing in a canopy bed is out of your budget, you can still get the look by investing in a cheap, white mosquito net to hang from your ceiling.
