Boho chic style is care-free, hippy inspired and one of our favorite interior style trends. Combining contemporary and vintage styles, boho chic style is inviting and fresh, with an element of unique individuality. The best part about boho chic style? It’s fresh. It’s natural. It’s lively. And it works beautifully across your whole home.
So how can you achieve the boho chic look in your home? Whether you want a boho chic living room or boho chic bedroom, it’s quite easy to adapt this fun, free-spirited interior style using the following four boho chic style elements:
Step One: Mix Colors & Textures
When it comes to boho chic style colors, there aren’t any! Any bright, vibrant color or neutral, plain color can be incorporated into boho chic style homes. Pairing a purple wall with a white bedspread or vice versa can easily achieve the bohemian vibe. However, if you’re picking paint colors, we recommend pastel pinks, turquoise blues, and pure whites to help you really grasp the eclectic style that is boho chic.
The key to achieving a boho chic look is to mix different textures. Pairing a faded, distressed wooden coffee table with a powerfully-patterned blue couch and a gorgeous, white shag rug can turn your room from “blah” to “boho” so easily!
Step Two: Incorporate Ethnic Prints
Layering different patterns and prints helps you achieve a fun, free-spirited boho chic style look. One of the best elements about boho chic style is that NOTHING has to match! That’s what gives boho chic style living rooms their unique and hippy-inspired look. An easy way to incorporate this look is by having a variety of patterned throw pillows or a mismatched couch and area rug. Take your living room from bland to boho chic bold with different patterns and prints.
Step Three: Find Floaty Fabrics
Whispy and free flowing blankets, tapestries and fabrics equal the ultimate boho chic look! Just think about the wide, flowing bell-bottom jeans of the 60’s and 70’s. THAT is what your aiming for. Toss a light throw blanket over your bedroom, layer some sheer, white fabric down from the ceiling, or hand up some boho-inspired tapestries to achieve the floaty fabric feel.
Step Four: Let Nature Inspire You
Whether you let nature-inspired patterns take over your home or buy a million house plants, a boho chic living room or boho chic bedroom needs to have a certain level of nature implemented. Ivy (real of fake), succulents or just simple greenery can change an entire rooms vibe from boring to boho!
