Bohemian style is defined by a relaxed and carefree vibe that gathers inspiration from nature and far off destinations. If you haven’t noticed, Boho (which stands for Bohemian) doesn’t look like it is going away anytime soon. The colors can be natural and earthy with pops of color, or vibrant with patterns in a mix-and- match style. Lots of varying textures give it an eclectic look.
Known to be artists and travelers, bohemians live unconventionally. Boho decor reflects the nomadic nature and creativity of the bohemian lifestyle. Rooms decorated in boho style have a variety of spaces to lounge in. Not just couches and chairs but layers of rugs, floor pillows and poufs. Being comfortable and hanging out is the Bohemian way.

Corner & Entryways
Add interest to an entryway or corner with a practical bench. Decorate it with layers of textured pillows, a throw blanket, kilim rugs in front and baskets underneath or to the side. Hang art above or wall hooks with pretty hats. This area is highly curated for a beautiful, Instagram look.
Incorporate Kilim Persian and Moroccan inspired rugs in rich colors of red pink and orange, or extra plush rugs in neutral palettes to your interior. Layer them to add that eclectic Boho touch.
In leather or fabric, poufs are wonderful for extra seating and to add a look of comfort and style to your living area.
Upside down woven baskets in bamboo and rattan are all so Boho. Pair them together or in triple pendants for a dramatic look. For a more feminine vibe, add macrame pendants or dangling wood beads in a chandelier fashion.
Combine vintage pieces from the 60s and 70s with modern wood and leather furniture. Some pieces can be more structured for a dramatic look but focus mostly on what is comfortable and perfect for lounging.
You always need an accent table to put your cup of espresso or your book of poems on. Geometric shaped tables or natural pieces, such as wood stumps, make the perfect accessory to that mid century couch.
geometric objects, wood pieces and succulents in ceramic pots make the perfect decor for your coffee and accent tables.
Hang landscape paintings or prints in thin wooden frames, or colorful graphic prints inspired from the 60s or 70s. You can find art on Etsy by searching phrases like “landscape painting” or “geometric print.”
Pillows & Throws
Pillows can transform a room. Add color with bright, graphic pillows or incorporate texture to your neutral color scheme with cushions that look hand woven.
Boho style evokes a sense of nature and plants are the perfect decor. Incorporate plants in white pottery or baskets into your interior. For low maintenance, use succulents that don’t require a lot of watering.
