Boho Design Ideas

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!
