Until very recently, minimalism was all the rage when it comes to interior design. But what about all those romantic souls who love different colours and patterns to make their space more friendly and warmer? Boho chic might be too much for some, but if incorporated well, it can look really elegant and feel enjoyable. So for that reason, here are some tips that can help you create a perfect Boho chic home.
1. Don’t be afraid to mix different colours
If you love a limited amount of colour, then maybe Boho chic isn’t for you, because this type of interior design requires an open mind and desire to combine unique and often contrasting elements. Hence, don’t be afraid to mix geometric patterns and ethnic elements, such as tribal prints, but pay attention to keep everything balanced and in good taste. Bright colours are always a welcome addition to a Boho home, and in case you prefer something more subtle, then you can always opt for olive green, mustard yellow and saturated purple tones.
2. Feel free to add various worldly elements
Experiencing wanderlust and travelling all over the world is one of the main aspects of Boho culture. Even if you don’t consider yourself a well-travelled person, fear not: being in love with the beauty of this world is more than enough, you just need to let that love shine through your interior decor. Therefore, hanging a vintage world map, and adding Ming-style vases or Moroccan rugs will infuse your home with a global feel.
3. Experiment with unique and bold pieces
Having a large statue or anything that captures attention is a nice way to start with your Boho journey. If you lack enough space to add a large antique armchair or something similar, you can always opt for interesting decor statement pieces such as SkullBliss wall art that incorporate vintage Bohemian patterns and mysterious and wild elements of nature. This type of decor will add authenticity to your space that will go well with the overall Boho chic aesthetic.
4. Vintage is always a great idea
Some people claim that they have a natural eye for all things vintage, while others struggle with finding unique pieces for their home. If you belong to a latter group, don’t give up: hunting for special vintage items requires effort and dedication, so be sure to browse flea markets and antique stores on a regular basis. If possible, link up with sellers, so they’ll be likely to notify you every time they get new goods. Aside from that, you can find a lot of vintage pieces online, but it’s important to be patient and diligent while searching.
5. Remember to add casual pieces as well
Boho chic isn’t about having a cute space, but also about keeping things comfortable and casual. A comfortable fluffy rug and throw pillows can add a sense of coziness to your home. Additionally, it’s advisable to create spaces that allow you to sit down and have a conversation whenever you have someone over. If you don’t like to invite guests, then feel free to create a unique space that will allow you to rest, relax while listening to music, meditating or reading a good book.
Boho chic is a great way to add more life and spirit to your home and transform it so it will truly reflect your personality. However, it’s essential to be open-minded and receptive to new ideas, especially regarding mixing and matching different patterns and colours. Finally, appreciating vintage pieces without sacrificing your comfort will surely help you create a perfect Boho home of your dreams.
