The Roots of Bohemian Decor

The Bohemian decor style draws its inspiration from the Bohemian lifestyle. Bohemian life traces its roots to the early 19th century, originating among artists, writers, and intellectuals in the vibrant neighborhoods of Paris and London. This unconventional lifestyle celebrated nonconformity, creativity, and a rejection of societal norms. Over the years, it evolved into a global subculture that continues to influence art, and fashion. This ethos found its way into interior design, giving rise to a style that celebrates individuality, creativity, and a sense of wanderlust.

Key Elements of Bohemian Decor

Rich & Eclectic Colors

Boho decor often features warm earthy neutrals with pops of metallics and jewel tones. Think deep jewel tones like emerald green, sapphire blue, and ruby red, paired with earthy hues like terracotta and ochre. The key is to create a sense of warmth and vibrancy.

Layered Textiles

Layering is a fundamental aspect of Bohemian decor. You'll find an abundance of globally inspired textiles such as canopies over beds, handmade macrame wall hangings, and an array of throw pillows and blankets. Mixing and matching textures and patterns is encouraged.

Natural & Vintage Accents

Natural elements such as Jute, Rattan, copious houseplants, and light finish wood bring an organic feel to any space. Vintage furniture and thrifted finds add character to your Bohemian oasis.

Implementing The Bohemian Vibe in Your Home

Embracing the Bohemian spirit in your interior design is a journey into the world of free-spirited creativity and non-conformity.
