If you want to turn the personality-factor up a notch in your home, a bohemian style is an amazing choice. This fun style is filled with powerful color palettes, welcoming fabrics, and organic textures. They will bring you closer to nature and ready for your summer adventures.
Bohemian - or boho chic, as I like to call it - is a carefree yet edgy interior design style. Filled with rich color, texture, and layers, this style can be described as having an "intentionally messy" look to it. Bohemian interiors are rarely minimalistic, but don’t always have to carry the maximalist flair that we most often see. With that said, decor is important to this style. Globally-infused decor - whether found on your own travels or at a flea market - really ties in that relaxed, bohemian look.
If this is your kind of style, opting for bright and earth-tone hues, metallic accents, rich woods, and natural fabrics are a great start. Wicker, linen, and jute are all terrific choices for accent chairs, rugs, baskets, and wall decor. Layer throw pillows, rugs, and pillows, add in a splash of natural color with plenty of house plants.
A colorful collection of fabrics and finishes, layered textiles, and a “lived in” feel give this gorgeous boho-chic feel. While visually stimulating, the pastel hues create a softer feel. If you want bold and vivid, a similar design style with a more saturated color palette would look just as beautiful.
While a much tamer bohemian style, the assortment of texture, scale, and dimension offer the same effortlessly “put-together” look. This interior focuses more on the natural elements of a boho-chic design, with an assortment of house plants and natural fabrics and decor. A Persian rug and antique chest anchor down the entire look by incorporating a cultured feel.
