What is bohemian style?
Are you an artist at heart? Drawn to handcrafted objects with soul? Love to travel to exotic destinations? If so, bohemian style could be the trend for you.
Eclectic, exotic, layered and laid-back, bohemian (or boho) style encompasses a heady mix of colours, textures and prints. The style often incorporates pops of vivid colours, gypsy, Moroccan or nomadic designs, tribal elements, wicker and macrame and textured fabrics from velvet to linen. The look is individual, free spirited and multi-layered. Add tassels and you have the look to a tee!
Draw on your own travels or dream of exotic destinations from Istanbul to Zanzibar to pull together your own unique boho style. Basically, it’s the interior design equivalent of a boho festival outfit, complete with exotic accessories!
What are bohemian patterns?
Look for natural colours and textures as a base - handwoven boho throw rugs, baskets and floor rugs, rustic timber, macramé and wicker - then add layers of exotic and colourful ethnic and nomadic prints such as ikats and flourishing indoor plants. Plus lots of bohemian cushions.
In the living area, add throw rugs for couches, leather ottomans or floor cushions and pile on boho cushions in a variety of colours and textures, some with tassels or fringing.
Why bohemian bedding?
Rock the casbah by turning your bedroom into an exotic, romantic boho haven. Ideally, you'll have a four-poster bed hung with floaty mosquito netting, but any bed can be adapted by dressing it in bohemian bedding. Deck the bed with boho quilt covers in tribal prints, add fringed cotton throw rugs and pile on the boho cushions. Complete the look with a macrame floor rug to step out onto in the morning.
