Bohemian styled décor is all about mixing cosy elements to create a welcoming and warm space. It is a relaxed style that characteristically uses an eclectic mix of colours, patterns, and textures. It is a style that bends traditional design rules and strives to create a more layered and personalized look.
Today, we will look at some of the primary traits of Bohemian décor and show you how you can recreate this fun style in your own home.
When it comes to Bohemian style, there really are no rules. Some common colours to use are warm, earthy tones, metallics, and jewel tones. Deep browns, greys, and greens make for a great base colour that can then complement purples, oranges, and blues. Layering these colours makes for an individualized and unique style.
You can then mix these colours with different textures and step away from conventional. Layer on blankets and Bohemian cushions in the space with these colours and different textures. A Tibetan fur round cushion pairs well with a Trudy or Zig Zag cushion and adds more personality to the space.
Since you want to go all out and step away from traditional style when styling with Bohemian décor, you must learn to mix and match. Basics like burlap mix well with silk. Cushions with this style combined with comfortable throws and area rugs come together to create an inviting hang out space.
When deciding on furniture for your Bohemian-inspired space, think vintage. Each piece of furniture you choose should tell a story. Plush chairs and sofas in saturated colours are trademarks of this style. Overstuffed floor cushions also create a welcoming atmosphere.
You can also mix and match different sized cushions for the space. For example, use larger cushions for additional floor seating and create a cosy space on the sofa with smaller cushions in different colours and textures.
Bringing the Look Together
Family heirlooms and handmade items are also great accessories to include in the space and lend well to this style’s more vintagey side. So, while Bohemian décor is eclectic, it can also be glamorous when introducing the right elements. When picking décor for the space, each item should say something about you.
