8 Ways to Nail Bohemian Style in Your Home

Updated: Jan 13


Bohemian Personality


Are you someone who loves interior rich in culture, interesting and unique items and bold colours? If the answer is yes, Bohemian style is your new best friend and guess what it says something about you too. It is normally associated with a carefree, relaxed with a touch of modern mindset personality.


8 Ways to Nail the Bohemian Style in Your Home:



1. Colour Palette


Start with basic and upgrade with colourful details next, simple as that. For example - place a light colour rug and layer-up with a colourful or an interesting texture rug on top. It will also help you to decide what colours to use for other decor pieces.

Shop ASHOKA HAND TUFTED INDIAN WOOL RUG at Natural Collection.


"Using traditional Indian artisan methods this Ashoka fair trade rug is hand tufted with 100% natural wool creating a rug that is full of texture and life. With cotton backing to protect the weave and prevent slippage this rug is soft yet durable and hard wearing. The diamond pattern has blue, cream and grey tones with an authentic vintage feel perfect for both traditional and contemporary interiors."




2. Pick your Pattern


Bohemian style is known for its instagrammable colours which leaves you to pick your favourite one or two patterns and stick with them. I am all about going crazy with whatever decor pieces make you happy, but in this case, you might need to be careful so it doesn't get too busy. Remember you are trying to tell one story throughout the whole design.

Shop Bohemian Moroccan Style Cushion Cover at Etsy.


"Lovely bohemian style cushion cover hand embroidered with soft textiles (woven cotton thread). Its minimalist, geometric design makes it a great item to mix and match with other pillows and throws in neutral hues for an eclectic vibe in the home." - Poppy & Bloom Store, Etsy.



3. Bring on The Shine


Get the items with metal/golden details like a geometric mirror with golden frame, wall art, a vintage lamp, hanging planter or metal candle holder. Anything that brings in some magical fairyland moment.


Shop Elephant Lampshade at Etsy.


" From our Niraj Indian Collection, the elephants that are marching around this shade have stunning butterfly wing ears, and blue pineapple crowns on the tops of their heads. They are accompanied by colorful parrots that also have butterfly wings. " - Fab Funky Pilliows, Etsy.



4. Get some Green Friends


Nothing says bohemian style more than a room filled with plants. Get different types and sizes and spread them around depending on how much light they require. If you wish to go even a step further and invest in a vertical garden, check out the article Indoor Vertical Garden - What you need to know.



5. Boho Furniture


Bohemian furniture you can find in vintage shops, filled with history and stories to tell. Perfect time to have some fun while exploring your local furniture shops. The best part is you can get some complete mismatch furniture and it will still look great. Cute little ottoman, vintage arm chair would be a perfect add-on.

Shop Vintage Blue Loaf Arm Chair at Vinterior.


"If like us you simply can’t wait to loaf around with nothing more taxing than having to read a good book or leaf through a pile of favourite mags, this armchair is especially for you! Yes, we’ve named this gorgeous blue creation in your honour, our Blue Loaf armchair is simply divine, upholstered in exquisite soft brushed cotton linen from British fabric design specialists Romo. " - Vinterior.



6. Romantic Light


When I say romantic light I mean warm subtle not in your face kind of light or in my case just another excuse to add an unhealthy amount of fairy lights (yes, you don't have to wait for Christmas season to sparkle). If you want to learn more about the actual daylight and its impact, check out the article 7 Benefits of Sunlight in Your Home and How to Increase It.



7. Art for the Creatives


Get that wall filled with a story of art and history. Try to follow your already selected colour scheme and get that beautiful piece of art hanging. Why not, make it even more personal with your own photos in a nice rustic gold frame.

Shop Coastal Set Boho Beach Wall Art at MIRAMARART, Etsy.




Shop Window Mirror at Wayfair.


If you don't have an actual window this window looking like mirror is a great solution to deceive the eye with its dual purpose - like a piece of art and adding another dimension to space.


8. Beautiful Statement Curtains


You should definitely take some time when choosing curtains. Things to consider - measurements, a colour that goes well but not overpowering the whole room and how much daylight you would like. Good time to check out some Pinterest inspo before you decide.


If you decide to go for something more subtle colour wise this beautiful rustic door frame curtain might be just the perfect choice for you.


Shop Rustic door frame curtain at WallKnot, Etsy.
