Interior Design - How to Nail the Bohemian Style in Your Home
HOW TO NAIL THE BOHEMIAN STYLE IN YOUR HOME
Bohemian or Boho decorating is for those who want their homes full of life, culture, and interesting items for all the world to see. This aesthetic flies in the face of modern sensibilities and embraces the carefree, the relaxed, and the unusual. And while Boho rooms tend to have certain similarities in that they are always eclectic and share similar features—no two rooms are ever completely alike.
Boho is inspired by people who choose to lead an unconventional life such as constant travellers, actors, and writers. The Bohemian style mirrors that life by combining objects, colours, and patterns from many areas of the world, making it a great interior design option for a rich and heady space full of visual interest and a relaxed spirit. If you are looking for a style that you can truly make your own, Boho might be for you.
As we continue our design style breaking down the essentials of different movements to consider for your home, we’re looking at tried and true routes to create your own perfectly curated bohemian style space with few following tips to incorporate.
#A Glam Duplex
A mix of blue and orange shades unite in this lively room. Along with a sofa that is upholstered in a rich blue Rubelli velvet, the space includes antique Louis XV-style orange armchairs, Italian footstools, a screen made in the, a cocktail table, and a faux-twig side table. A custom Tibetan rug, artwork by John Grant, and a lithograph by Andy Warhol complete the look.
The perfect example of bohemian style. From the purple and lime green velvet seating to the black and white striped West Elm cocktail table, the space is chock-full of focal points.
A lively combination of rich green and purple hues gives this office a luxurious feel.
An attractive mix of patterned upholstery and accents gives this living room a bohemian vibe.
From the black and white checkered floor and pastel blue walls to the floral upholstered chairs and 19th century porcelain garden stool, this living room is full of design statements.
Think about those tastefully designed studies that wow us in movies. Aside from their sheer modern or flamboyantly aristocratic look, there are certain elements that clearly separate them from plain offices. These are a specific set of cultural accessories, ranging from works of art to the most eccentric paraphernalia: trophies, antiques, weapon panoplies, exotic wood partitions, also bring in some nature ,earth globes, and maps, statues of distant cultures, vintage scientific instruments, along with touches of symmetry and carefully picked furniture from over mid-century to the wake of minimalism.
If you receive guests or clients into your study, upholstered armchairs are a must.These are the studies that celebrate not just design, but also science and civilization.
Layer up on bohemian style decor decorative items and textiles. It features globally inspired textiles and rugs, displays of collections, and items found in widely varied sources including flea markets and during one’s travels. It aspires unconventional way of styling where anything goes as long as you love it.
#Shy Away From Minimalism
With bohemian style decor, more is more as this design style isn’t about empty surfaces and blank spaces – the look is all about indulgent maximalist. That said, keep your bohemian living room decor full of curated finds, but for a bohemian style bedroom, our designers suggest a more pared-down take.
# Accessorize Artistically
Accessories should give the impression that you are well-travelled (even if you’re not). Artistic accessories will add further interest to your cozy spaces and make for cultured talking points. Go bold with artistic pieces which stand out and are less than ordinary.
# Cheery Living Room
This cheery living room, features a lively blue and yellow palette. Floral sofas against high-gloss blue walls and a ceiling inset of yellow felt paper make for a visual feast.
# Metallic And Mirrors
Metallic and mirrored surfaces are hallmarks of bohemian interior design, especially for making a modern bohemian living room appear brighter and larger. Metallic and mirrors also add focal points to your room, along with a sense of everyday glamour.
#Low Lying Furniture
This might sound strange, but the closer to the floor you are, the closer you are to creating an authentic bohemian style house. Think low-backed sofas, scattered with plenty of plush, comfortable throw cushions, with neighbouring poufs for extra seating.
