This style is all about bringing out warmth and vibrancy to any interior. Rather than sticking to traditional decor, these tips will bring you outside of your comfort zone. Go for unique finds from a flea market or local shop to make your space feel truly special and unique! Instead of making things match, get playful! Layer different colors and prints together to create an easy, breezy look. You want the room to be filled with energy and joy! So let’s get to the festivities!
Play with Patterns
Looking for a way to jazz up your decor? Look no further! Patterning is an easy way to bring in some sweetness and spice. The bohemian style thrives on the use of unusual and unique prints. Playful rugs are a perfect way to integrate some color and spunk. Patterned throw pillows and blankets can also dress up the living room sofa! You can also choose curtains with different patterns that will accentuate other colors.
Popular bohemian prints are largely inspired by different cultures such as paisley prints, originated from India. Opt for lighter, flowy fabrics rather than heavy, weighted ones to create a carefree atmosphere. Patterned wall tapestries are also popularly hung above a bed or a sofa. White walls work especially well to contrast with bright pops of color around the room for a clean yet refreshing ambiance. There are endless combinations awaiting!
Although the bohemian style might be associated with modern design, it works surprisingly well with antique elements. Bring in the old with the new to create contrast and tension. Diversity in styles, tones, and textures are at the heart of the Bohemian style. Distressed wood and tarnished metals add a more authentic and laid-back feel. Antique sculptures, candlestick holders, pots, lamps, clocks, and mirrors can be used to accent any room.
Vintage elements will also make your space feel more comfortable and lived-in. Nothing should be polished; instead, opt for slightly worn yet functional furnishings. Rustic elements can also work well to offset bright colors and patterns. Flea markets are the perfect places to look for quirky finds that go well with this highly individualistic and unconventional style. Handmade collectibles tell a story and are easy to pair with other antique and vintage items.
Layering colorful throw pillows with blankets is an easy way to dress up a sofa or bed. Mixing natural materials with synthetic fabrics will create an eclectic style. Natural fabrics such as burlap, wool, silk, and cotton can pair well with synthetic fabrics such as rayon and polyester. Fringe and tassels can also add flair to any blanket or decorative pillow. Hang a canopy above your bed for the ultimate BoHo arrangement and don’t shy away from bold patterns and colors!
Hammocks are also popular leisure spaces in the Bohemian style. Furs and knitted fabrics also go well together in creating the ultimate cuddly space. Floral and geometric prints are especially popular in Bohemian-style bedding and can be found in a wide variety of styles from feminine and dainty to intense bold designs. There is a mix of styles for everyone. With these Boho-inspired sets, you won’t be able to leave your bed.
It’s time to ditch the inner minimalist and embrace all that Bohemian style has to offer. More is truly more in this case! There should be a good mix of different hues and tones of color throughout the room. It’s good to contrast white or neutral walls and furnishings with bright pops of color! You can easily decorate with colorful pillows, artwork, lamps, and vases! Hang an eye-catching chandelier to bring even more color into the room.
The goal is to be expressive and unleash your individual style. You want the whole space to be filled with life and energy. You can opt for subdued tones for a more relaxed vibe or stick to more daring hues to create a striking look. Often, playing with patterns and prints goes hand-in-hand with bright colors. It really couldn’t get easier. The opportunities for creativity are endless!
Want to bring some life into the room? There’s no better way than to incorporate flora and fauna. Decorate shelves and tables with smaller potted plants or disperse bigger plants in open spaces. Greenery will refresh any space, bringing in even more color and life. Plants pair especially well with vintage or antique styles, as well as organic fabrics. Citrus trees, palms, ivy plants, and succulents work well with indoor spaces and are to take care of. Go to your local garden center to pick out a combination of plants that work well for you.
Macrame hangers can be hung near windows in the living room or kitchen while potted plants can be placed on window ledges. DIY your own pots or buy decorative vases for functionality and design. Playing with glass, ceramic, and geometric style are also fun ways to add diversity. Long, hanging plants have a beautiful draping effect that complements shorter potted plants. With so many decorative choices you are sure to find what works best for your home!
