The boho chic style is for those who want their homes to be full of life, culture and interesting objects for the whole world. This aesthetic goes against modern sensibilities and embraces the carefree, relaxed and unusual. Boho rooms tend to have certain similarities, in that they are always eclectic and share similar characteristics.
What is boho style?
Boho chic is a revolutionary personal and exotic style of decorating a living space. Boho style is inspired by people who choose to lead unconventional lives such as constant travellers, actors and writers. Boho style reflects this life by combining objects, colours and patterns from many parts of the world. If you are looking for a style that you can really create yourself, boho style could be for you.
Although there are no rules when it comes to boho chic, warm, earthy colours are common, as are metals and jewellery tones. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns and textures, and don’t be afraid to use styles that may not fit together conventionally. Use textiles and dyed patterns from around the world to give the space a sense of fun and exoticism. Try hanging tapestries and rugs on the walls next to your photos and artwork. If this all seems a bit too much, keep in mind that while saturated colours are the key to bohemian style, white can have a place as a backdrop for richer tones. Use white strategically to provide some visual space.
In contrast to minimal, modern and elegant, boho chic decoration embraces a philosophy of “more is more”. The key to using decorative materials in a boho room is to mix and match. Natural base materials such as jute and sisal can be combined with silk and chenille. The materials should look slightly worn – undamaged, but not shiny and also new. Fringes, crochet and macramé abound: pillows, curtains and carpets combine to create a comfortable, world-inspired meeting place. Awnings over beds and living areas are signature boho ornaments.
