What is boho interior design?

Boho, short for "bohemian," is a design style that encapsulates a sense of freedom, individuality, and artistic expression. An incredibly diverse style, it has roots in the hippie and alternative lifestyle movements if the 20th century. 

Modern boho interior design is all about mixing patterns, textures, and colours to create a charming and cosy space. Boho interiors often feature elements inspired by various cultures, making it a truly global and inclusive style.

Here are a few quick, easy, and affordable ways for you to find your inner bohemian.

Contrasting colours and patterns

Boho design is all about mixing and matching; uniformity is certainly not the word of the day. Don’t be afraid to contrast bold colours with softer, earthy tones.

Layering diverse patterns and textures can also add depth and character to your décor.

Embrace vintage finds

It’s time to get thrifty!

Boho interior design embraces the quirky and unique. Get down to your local flea markets and vintage shops to see what one-of-a-kind pieces you can unearth.

Remember, mixing old and new elements is one of the cornerstones of the boho aesthetic. There are no wrong answers.

Let nature in

Any boho-inspired space should have one foot firmly planted in nature. That means adding houseplants, greenery, and natural hues into your home.

Think plant hangers, woven baskets, and wooden accents to bring the outside in. Do this, and you’ll soon be kicking back in your own little urban oasis.

Speaking of wooden accents…
