In 2020, we have heard much about Bohemian styling. Maybe being stuck staring at the same four walls has made people long for some individuality. Either way, Boho chic is in for the new year.
So, if you fancy a change for 2021, here’s how to do the Boho A-Z!
Accessories – Paintings, clocks, objects of art – Boho is about you and your personality. Whatever you’re into, bring out your passions!
Books – Books, even higgledy-piggledy arranged can totally make a Boho living room. Don’t worry about looking highbrow, go for what you like.
Cozy – Aim to create comfort rather than sterile perfection. This is the room you want to hang out in, not showcase to others.
Eclectic – Boho is all about mixing it up and there’s no such thing as overkill. This is one place where less is definitely not more!
Habitable – Above all, Boho styling is about creating a living space lived in and homely.
Individual – Boho is handmade. DIY art and homespun crafts will all sit nicely in your Boho room.
Layers – Boho means layering. This means throws, rugs, and heavy chenille drapes. Wall hangings and alluring window dressings add to the atmosphere.
Mélange – Boho is about mixing it up – this means textures, styles, cultures, and lighting should be as varied as possibly.
Natural – Include as much natural light as you can do. Utilize different types of lighting to bring light to the room. Boho is never dark or dingy.
Patterns – Patterns define the Boho look and the good thing is that they don’t have to match. Whether you go for big patterns or smaller snatches, always remember to mix it up!
Rainbow Color – This is one style which soaks up color like no tomorrow. However, you can opt for neutral surroundings interspersed with more brightly colored items.
Textures – Textures should invite a variety of sensory experiences i.e., velvets, leather, stone etc. Also think baskets, bamboo, tapestry, and shagpile rugs.
Vintage – Vintage items really add to the Boho vibe. Whether this is an antique sideboard, or a period piece is up to you.
Wildlife – Never forget nature – it occupies center stage in the Boho home. Leafy green foliage is a must. Choose whatever takes your fancy, from Bonsai trees to exotic orchids, but plants are essential to the Bohemian room.
Zen – Believe it or not, Boho can do Zen. Although associated with uncluttered and calm, a Bohemian styling brings coziness and nature into a Zen-like harmony.
Here’s some Bohemian ideas for your next project.
