what is a boho chic home and 30 examples cover

Boho chic décor style is for those who want their homes full of life, culture, and interesting items for all the world to see. This aesthetic flies in the face of modern sensibilities and embraces the carefree, the relaxed, and the unusual. This style is inspired by people who choose to lead an unconventional life such as constant travelers, actors, and writers. How to bring these vibes to your home right?

Colors And Patterns

There are no rules about color schemes but warm earthy colors are common, as are metallics and jewel tones. You will want to think deep browns, greens, and grays for base colors, and then accessorize with saturated purple, fiery orange, and electric blue. If you aren’t a fan of all this colorful craziness, you may opt for neutrals and earthy tones instead.

Bright colors and lots of patterns such as florals and paisleys mixed with ethnic patterns like tribal prints and geometric patterns are a hallmark of boho chic style. So don’t be afraid to use dyed textiles and patterns from around the world, layer throws on top of furniture and try hanging tapestries and area rugs on the walls alongside your photos and art.

Texture And Finishes

The hippie influence of the 1960s and ’70s on boho-chic style ushered in an infusion of accessories that utilize natural or raw materials such as hemp, sisal, wood, and rattan. Think woven wall decor, macrame plant hangers, a sisal area rug, a leather footstool or a decorative ladder. Although natural textures are key, don’t let that stop you from throwing in a metallic Buddha or metal floor lamp if you want them.

Furniture

Bohemian furniture usually is not found in a store. These rooms tend to be filled with furniture collected over time, so second-hand and vintage items are right at home here. Each piece of furniture should be special and tell a story. But rather than American primitive pieces or rustic flea market finds, this style actually focuses more on mid-century modern pieces as well as anything reminiscent of the free spirit hippy culture of the 1960s and ’70s.

Casual Décor

The last but not least tip is keeping it casual. Boho chic spaces are not fussy or formal, so forget all kinds of formal elements. Think floor cushions and poufs; piles of pillows or a comfy area rug; and spaces that encourage conversation, reading, and listening to music or playing games rather than watching TV or hosting formal dinner parties. Get inspired and create your own boho chic oasis!
