Boho Bohemian Interior Design Styles

One of the most popular interior design styles in recent years, Boho / Bohemian Styles are free thinking and do not conform to the norms of society.

Keeping away from carefully constructed interiors, Boho spaces are off-beat, beautiful, artistic delights.

The key to a Bohemian style is to carefully present a messy look on purpose using a mix of colours and a variety of elements like throws, rugs, pillows, trinkets, tapestry.

The Bohemian style allows for expression of personal tastes and freedom.

The mismatch of old and new furniture, décor and colours create a cheerful atmosphere for a free-spirited lifestyle. Bohemian styles are carefree layers of texture, pattern and colour

Imagine the carefree lifestyle of Gypsy’s in Europe with their travels and trinkets.

While Bohemian styles have no set rules, there are certain characteristics found in Bohemian Interior Designed homes.

Following is a guide to help you accomplish a Boho Interior Design style.

 

Layers in a Boho Interior Design

Mixing finishes and layering elements is key to a Bohemian Style.

Combine new with old to create a playful interior.  A rustic table with mismatched chairs and African Baskets on the wall, a new sofa with a macrame wall hanging.

Intentional layering creates a Boho style. Style with contrasting patterns and shapes adding in different textures with rugs, cushions and throws.   

Choose a variety of bright colors or if you prefer a more consistent look, choose a set color palette.

High pile, shaggy rugs provide comfort and visual layering. Other rug options include Persian, Kilims and South Western Influenced rugs with beautiful patterns.

Include tassels and fringes on rugs, cushions or throws along with macrame and crochet items.
