Bring boho style in your home
“My style is boho chic. I love that time period- the patterns, the prints, the people, the music, the vibe.” – Vanessa Hudgens
What is Boho style?
A bit of everything which makes a cozy atmosphere- that is a boho style. Bohemian style is very popular now.The word Boho means free spirit, adventurous, artist free, and bohemians were a group of people(gypsies) which originated in Bohemia, central Europe. They lived a nomadic, free-spirit lifestyle and traveled around Europe, visiting its major cities. Meeting different cultures all around the world, they put them together and “invented” the new style.
How to bring a boho style in your home? Easy. Make your space colorful, warm and not perfect. Boho style is the opposite of Scandinavian style, where everything is perfect and sterile. Let’s follow these steps.
Play with mixed textures
Be creative. If you want to bring the boho vibe in your home, don’t focus on one pattern, or color-mix them. Buy different textures, such as sofa, basket, fiber rugs, colorful and Persian rugs. Add some wooden furniture in your space. Macrame wall hangings are a common choice for living rooms.
Bohemian colors are usually warm colors.
You can combine some earthy colors, such as brown, green, or some metallic or jewels colors. Use them as a base and decorate the space with orange, purple, or blue.
Black color is not recommended for this style. You can use it, but balance it.If you don’t like colorful places, base them on the neutral colors. Use different tones of brown color and decorate the space with some orange tones and plants. You can buy an orange rug and green plants will give that fresh look.
The main purpose of bohemian style is to make your space relaxing and comfortable.
You can make that with some colorful floor pillows, comfortable ottomans, well-designed poufs. Moroccan or Asian design is a good choice. Movie lovers will always choose some bean bags, because they can feel comfortable.
Bring plants in your home
Plants have an important role in bohemian style, so they should be present everywhere. They bring the natural atmosphere in your space.Whether you choose large, small, hanging plants, or plants with pots they will all be a perfect match with your space. Some common plants are philodendrons, pothos, ferns, monstera, cacti, and many other beautiful plants.
Make the surroundings natural with some warm lighting. Do not use cold lights. Decorate the space with some chandeliers, candles, floor or table lamps. You can find a variety of designs and shapes, so the best way is to mix them. Materials, such as fringe, metal, wood, fibers and beads, all define this style.
Boho rugs are made of different patterns: silk, wool, polyester and nylon. They are colorful and with many gorgeous details. These rugs will implement your home and make the space more vivid and lively.
