Bohemian chic home style tips

bohemian style

No home style is more diverse than bohemian and you can be subtle and creative or bold and beautiful. For a subtle look, add Moroccan design embroidered cushions to a neutral or block colour sofa and lay a rag-stitched rug on the floor to give some eclectic twists to your room. Leafy greens are a trademark of bohemian style so hanging baskets attached to a hook on the wall as well as large potted plants will add to your look – rustic touches such as mismatched crates and boxes to store your bits and bobs will give a homely feel..


Being bold with Bohemian style

For rich and decadent bohemian style, find pouffes and blankets made from recycled fabrics and offcuts of cloth and dot these around the room. A large decorative sofa with rich wooden legs will add character and a focal point while upcycled wooden accessories such as a cane stool with wicker overlay will show a creative side making it seem like you sourced these furniture pieces from far and wide. Bohemian style lets you play around with your design, so no furniture should be too matchy yet go for shades of teal and auburn which still complement each other.


Designs for Bohemian Style

Mixed patterns are a trademark of bohemian style, so look out for cushions with floral prints, birds and zig-zag geometrics and put these on a sofa or bed together. Mix and match your materials too by mixing hessian, burlap and sisal with silks, linen and cotton – it’s perfect if these have a worn or lived-in look. For the walls, stay with whites or grey so your accessories do the talking or add a brick-style feature wallpaper to stop the wall from looking flat.
