5 Tips to pull off Boho style

1) One thing the boho home never lacks is texture.

Adding texture to your living room can be achieved easily by adding things like baskets, natural fiber rugs, planters made of different materials, natural edge wood furniture, macrame wall hangings and more.
At the beginning, start by arranging a variety of several items into the area you are decorating. Then move them around, play around with different positions and materials until it feels right.

2) Low-level sitting area

Boho philosophy is all about chilling out and relaxing.
So obviously, floor pillows, soft ottomans poufs and bean bag chairs, legless sofas and even mattress’s are all great low-level seating options to have, because they give the feeling of an invitation for people to sit and down and relax for a while.

3) Don’t use black

One important thing to keep in mind in your chic bohemian decor, is to stay away from large, black pieces of furniture or big pieces of furniture in super dark woods. Stick with vibrant, warm colors. As for furniture, the light bleached woods provide airiness and a clean backdrop for the colors, patterns, and textures that you’ll be adding to your room.

4) Add Plants and then some more plants

The more plants you have, the better! Plants give that effortless “jungle” natural vibe, and they are amazing! Though you can use those hanging and vining plants, to add a ton of visual interest to areas of your room that feel empty, don’t forget that adding gorgeous and funky planters into your space, will give you more opportunity. Bohemian decorating ideas including plants, should always at the forefront of your design ideas.

5) Mix different Light Sources

Lighting is always one of the important things, in any decor style, and your lighting when you’re creating a boho space is no exception.

You can mix and match whatever types of light sources like String lights, lanterns, funky chandeliers, candles. You can use them all, but natural fiber pendants, look best in a boho lighting style.
