Relaxed, earthy, eclectic, whimsical. There’s lots to love about adopting bohemian bravado at home. Interested in getting the look? Don’t be shy. The layered look has a go-for-it vibe. So pile on the vintage rugs, plant life, patterned cushions, rattan accents and mix those hues!
Want to go boho? Lay down an oversized patterned rug. In this space, the rug’s sassy blues and whites uplift the earthier tones in the furniture. A large peace sign over the fireplace and a space-like canvas are the exact hippie vibe that work perfectly in a boho pad.
Hello, Earth mama! If there’s one thing we adore about bohemian spaces, it’s their kick-up-your-feet sofas. A comfy vintage couch, a wild mix of pillows (yes, feel free to put stripes and tassels together) and clustered baskets lend a relaxed vibe in this welcoming interior by The Boho Abode‘s Corinna Henderson.
If you’re all about elegance, steal style from this bohemian living room. Splashy statement artwork (leaning casually on a ledge) adds zip to the more restrained black-and-white colour palette. A subdued collection of pillows, a leaning ladder and a modern sofa err on the side of sophistication over sloppiness.
On the Slicker Side
It’s a misnomer that bohemian spaces are messy and freewheeling, as this exquisitely styled living room proves. Decorated by Hannah Leonard of Loom and Kiln (a seller of stunning vintage rugs), this take on the boho look has refined flourishes. These include black metal chairs with clean-lined profiles, a striking monochromatic chandelier and a subtly patterned fireplace surround. Anchored by the colourful Persian rug, she’s a boho beauty.
Cheery pastels and plenty of plants is giving us all the boho feels in this living room by Janelle Burnett. We also love the layered rugs – so cozy!
If the word “adorable” doesn’t instantly come to mind when you see this boho-esque living room, then you should probably spend more time petting puppies. A smattering of pillows including a darling pink pompom-ed affair, colourful graphic artwork and a floppy plant are details that make this room, from Montreal’s Baba Souk, sing.
For a more sophisticated spin on easy-breezy boho style, create a curated corner at home that is both relaxed and refined. In this gorgeous area, it’s all about the nods to nature that bring a textural appeal to the space. These include the natural rope pendant, the rugs and the pillows. The banana-leaf artwork and cane-back daybed work so well here, too.
The Dark Side
News flash: boho rooms are not solely pale. Interior enthusiast Charlotte Synne conjures up a moody attitude with this sultry scheme. A black-on-black wall and sofa doesn’t feel dreary thanks to the doses of wood and rattan as well as the whimsical pile of pillows.
