A great starting point for changing the entire look and feel of your house is to first understand what you like, your style and the kind of vibe you’re trying to create. You could start off with your favourite colour that makes you happy followed by adding various elements like dreamcatcher, paintings, lighting, colourful fabric, textures etc. Once you’re self-assured about the colour, theme and vibe, you’re half way through creating a beautiful space designed by you. Here are some creative room styling boho ideas you can adapt to enhance your space.

Here are some simple ways you can follow to bring out the bohemian spirit in your space.

Most Important Rule for Wall Colour: Follow your heart and be free

There aren’t any restrictions or specific patterns to follow when it comes to boho home decor. Bohos follow their own style and have their own taste. To bring out the boho vibe in your room – begin with painting your walls with some warm earthy colours. Be free and take risk with the colours because there isn’t any specific paint rule to follow. If you want a colourful space then follow your heart and be free to do so. Prints over paint look great too! You can pick your favourite flower, feather or any gypsy symbol (peace, sun, hamsa etc) and create a beautiful print pattern of your own over the wall colour.

Here’s a great example of Boho Home Decor. There are many elements like paintings, posters, tapestries, textured fabrics and a delightful tone of earthy colours, yet the room materializes well with a natural flair. The contrasting sofas define free-spirited mind, not being restricted by any specific design rule or colour. Thus expresses the Bohemian Philosopy of “Life is beautiful. Accept everyone as they are.” The eclectic red Tibetian Rug gives the room character and all the colours complement one another against light sky blue walls. The Lindsay Print truly speaks for itself and looks pretty too!!

 

Good vibes is the only thing you need while resting on your cosy bed

Think of your bed – the way you want it to look as you’ll be spending maximum time in it. A cosy and vibrant bed with a generous pile of cushions with a bright shade of carpet and inviting decor adds on the good vibes one needs to complete the look.

 

Paint a piece of furniture that has a story to tell

Handmade goods always have a special essence of warmth than their machine counterparts because it is made with a lot of care and affection. Painting a piece of furniture by yourself may not save money but definitely bring a smile on your face every time you look at it. Here’s a perfect example of hand painted trunk and drawers that has bohemian print painted all over it. Choose a piece of furniture that has a story to tell. Put your own imagination in to painting the piece of art you want – something that defines you.

 

   

Having the right set of lighting in your room can really uplift your mood. To achieve a bohemian filtered lighting you can play with some quirky lanterns or opt for a classic bulb wave. The creative boho mind never falls in short of ideas to add colours with unusual elements. Curtains play an important role in changing the mood of your room. When natural sun light passes through the bright curtains it influences the tone of your room and you will be surprised to see how beautiful it looks. In the night, a quirky lantern or a bulb wave will just help you relax in peace.

 

Just the way no two pieces of art are ever alike. You will never a bedroom like yours!! Be the designer of your own little space so you can say it loud, “Bohemian and proud”
