Bohemian chic lifestyle, often shortened to “boho”, is truly a style that never gets old. First emerging in the 1960s, inspired by the hippie counterculture and a passion for traveling, boho chic combines natural materials and ethnic decor elements, such as tassels and fringes. Although the style first manifested in clothing, it’s well translatable into interior design. In fact, some boho design elements in your home will always look stylish and tasteful. In this article, we are going to share the boho designs elements that will always look good in your home.
Vivid, ethnic-inspired patterns are an unmistakably bohemian design element. Make a space livelier by adding patterned pillows and throw blankets to your decor. Create an even more unique decor by mixing and matching different patterns. For example, combine the Aztec diamond pattern with stripes. However, to make these combos work, try to stay in a similar color palette.
Tastefully antique decor is another hallmark of boho chic. However, a lacquering job may be enough to give an armchair or a cupboard a vintage feel. Unique furniture and handmade textiles are also timeless elements of boho chic. To make a room cozy and stylish in the boho way, add knitted and fringed textiles on your sofa or armchairs.
When we are talking bohemian chic decor, rugs are always going to be its main element. You can even combine rugs to connect areas of your home, or even stack rugs on each other for a unique feel. If you have no room for clutter (which boho is also famous for!), a colorful Persian rug will be the centerpiece of your minimalist design setup. However, if you add other textiles, keep things consistent and stick to one color palette.
