Bohemian style, also known as ‘boho-chic’, is a look that’s effortless, relaxed, organic, romantic, spontaneous, carefree and spirited. If I have just described your personality, then this style would suit your interiors.
It’s all about combining an eclectic mix of varied pieces in a nonchalant way. Think vintage finds with, ethnic influences, mixed patterns and layered textures. The focus is on comfort and freedom. No set design rules apply.
However, one drawback of Bohemian style is that it’s easy to take the look too far. So that becomes chaotic, random, cluttered and busy. One great solution to ensure this doesn’t happen is to opt for a neutral colour palette of tonal whites.
Bohemian white brings to mind thoughts of relaxed and carefree holidays so surrounding yourself with this style can help reduce everyday stress. It’s also a great style to introduce when you enter a new chapter of your life. For example, after when you’ve moved houses, started a new job or even made a renewed commitment to devoting energy to your health and wellness.
It is also an inexpensive style to achieve. You can easily achieve the look with a few key pieces mixed with recycled furniture or furniture you already have. Here are some of top style tips for crafting a bohemian white look:
– Use multiple layers when dressing beds, sofas and even your windows. Mix sheers with lace and linens.
– There are many shades of white, ranging from the purest of whites to muted grey hues. The full spectrum of white works in a bohemian look.
– Keep it natural. Washed timber furniture, long hair wool rugs and indoor hanging plants all work well together.
– Bohemian style all about a natural evolution. Which means that your space may never be ‘finished’ but rather grow and evolve as you do. Look for pieces that reflect your travels and life journey. However, editing is important to keep the look harmonious and ordered. So while you can keep adding pieces over time remember sure to remove other items as well.
