Boho interior design is not a new concept, but we love the fact that it's been trending these last few years! What makes a space 'bohemian' you may ask? Boho design is all about layers; woven textures, colors, and objects. Boho style embraces the unexpected; it's worldly while being casual and carefree. You can't have a boho room without organic elements either; plants, natural fibers, and wood furniture are the heart of bohemian style. Boho style can be seen mixed with other styles, namely eclectic and Mid-Century Modern. Why is that? Boho design adds a personal touch, adding character and warmth to a space, while Mid-Century feels very functional and classic in a sense. The blending of the two styles gives a rewarding balance! This is merely just one example of how bohemian style can be incorporated into other tried and true design styles. Boho design can be broken down simply. Creating a solid foundation for this style is key, and color is a great place to start. Traditionally, saturated Earth tones were very popular with bohemian design, while a neutral base can ground the space visually. Neutral bases are best for this style, because the layering of textures and decor can quickly feel overwhelming if a space starts as a bright color or pattern. One of the most appealing aspects of boho design is the use of plants and botanicals. Indoor plants have a long list of benefits, from mood boosting properties to air filtraiting abilities, and to top it off they are lush texture and color to a boho styled interior. If you don’t have a green thumb or the light to grow plants, you can opt for faux plants or even botanical artwork. This will still give the nod to boho style and add the personality you’re looking for. We’ve spoke of layering in boho design, but what does that mean? When designing a bohemian space, layering rugs, pillows, decor in a literal and visual sense is the building blocks of this style. Have fun mixing patterns and shapes, but keep the colors in harmony to keep the space from feeling more eclectic than boho. A beautiful deep red vintage rug can sit at the base of the room and on it can sit woven poufs in various patterns, all adding more depth and color to the space. There are many ways to go about a boho style space, and however it is, make sure your personality shines through! We’ve compiled our favorite boho interior design ideas for you to get inspired, so enjoy!
We love the way a black and white color palette makes an impact in a neutral living room. A conversational seating arrangement is created with a modern sofa in a light upholstery fabric paired with black leather chairs for contrast. A shag rug adds a boho touch to the space!
We love the idea of adding a reading nook to your bedroom for an extra space to unwind at the end of the day. And you don’t have to have a lot of space to do this! A single chair and a basket for books is all you really need. Though a rug for coziness and to section off that space certainly doesn’t hurt!
There are so many warm and inviting elements in this space that tie together the collected feel of the decor. From the cain bed to the geometric woven pouf this room feels like it was put together by someone who is worldly yet unassuming, thanks, in large part, to the yummy salmon color of the walls.
To achieve an effortless boho lounge design, there are a few things to keep in mind! First, you'll want to incorporate natural materials, like a jute rug and woven fiber basket. To keep this natural look flowing, add a daybed with a nature-inspired carved pattern, like the Lovella bed from Anthropologie. Finally, keep the art simple but bold, like a framed tapestry!
Comfort was a key factor in design this mid-century boho living room. to create an arrangement that amplifies comfort, we opted for two facing sofas that supply plenty of seating for family and guests. We also chose darker fabrics for the sofas and bench to ensure the room is both kid- and pet-friendly.
The bright and spacious entry makes for the perfect a mid-century boho home. The mix of relaxed furnishings (warm walnut bench, woven planter, wiry pendant, large round mirror) contrasts with the crisp white walls, which lend an airy, open feel.
