Choosing to decorate your home in a bohemian style can give it an artistic, relaxed vibe. The originality of it, and the way it blends interesting aspects of different cultures will make your space pop.

One of the most striking parts of the bohemian style is the blending of different cultures. There are vintage and hippy splashes in every corner, which is what gives it that creative, bohemian look. This style is perfect if you want to create a space that feels warm and relaxed.

If you decide to decorate your home in the bohemian style, just make sure not to overdo it. You need to carefully select each object and which part of the space it will go best in.

Today, we’re going to start by telling you the basic characteristics of the bohemian style, and give you some fun ideas on how to decorate with it in mind.

How to decorate your home in a bohemian style

Warm colors

You need to make sure to have lots of warm colors if you want to do your house in this style. Yellows, oranges, and reds are key. Tapestries, cushions, wall paint, and furniture are all perfect places to incorporate these colors.

It’s also a good idea to paint your walls white or any other light color. That way you make sure the rest of your decoration will stand out.

Materials and textures

Like we said above, blending is a basic part of the bohemian style. Like the eclectic style, bohemian decoration involves using accessories and objects from various cultures.

There should be art in every corner. This also means that you’ll need to have a mixture of different textures and materials. For example, you could combine wood and metal, or put mirrors and plants in the same space.

The importance of fabric

Fabrics are an essential part of bohemian decoration. There are endless possibilities for patterns and textures on rugs, tapestries, cushions, and blankets.

Having lots of different fabrics of all kinds of colors can make any space feel warm. Striped fabrics with various shades of red are trendy right now–give them a try!

Furniture

If you look up bohemian decorations, you might notice a lot of short furniture. It’s common to have super short coffee tables and big cushions on the ground as seating.

You could also take care of seating with short puff chairs or stools. The short furniture will bring your home a wonderful feeling of comfort and relaxation. 

Bohemian wall decorations

Blending together decorations and artistic objects from various cultures will make your house extremely original. You just have to choose carefully and distribute them properly in your home. 

If you have collected accessories or souvenirs from other cultures during your travels, this is a perfect time to show them off and use them for your home decor. It will make your home the most interesting in town!

Hang lots of things paintings and tapestries on the walls

One of our favorite ideas is to pick out a big, empty wall and hang paintings, prints, tapestries, and mirrors, all in different styles. This will liven up the space and make it seem like you have an art gallery in your house.

Other accessories

There are also lots of other things you can hang up with this style. Try hanging up some strings with colorful pompoms, fringes, or even dream catchers.  

Lighting

Good lighting will put the final touch on the feeling you want to create in your home. Light does more than just brighten an area, it also sparks feelings. The bohemian style is all about warm spaces, so warm lighting is fundamental if you want to decorate this way.

Try putting in some string lights in some part of the room. Or, you could even try using small lanterns or candle-holders. Candles by themselves are also a great option that will give a romantic touch to your bohemian home.

Personalized corners

Corners are generally good for personal, intimate spaces. You could put some cushions and blankets in one so that you can sit on the floor. Then add a small table for a perfect place to have some coffee and read. Having moments to relax and be alone is key to clearing your mind and connecting with yourself.

These things and many others all need to be included and carefully combined in your home. Just remember not to overload your spaces.

Once you’re finished, your house will be full of memories, trips, artistic pieces, and all your favorite accessories. Blending things together will give your home a fascinating, fun, warm, and, of course, bohemian vibe.
