Whether you're a design enthusiast or new to styling spaces, there's a possibility that you would never think of combining Bohemian and mimimalist styles in a single room. After all, the latter is about paring things down to the bare minimum while Boho reminds you of maximalist elements. 

What can you do if you love both trends? Don't worry, you don't have to give up one for the other. All you need to do is strike the perfect balance by going easy on the trinkets and practicing your eye for calming details. To help you get started, we've put together some pegs for inspiration: 

There's only one basic rule to follow when trying to achieve a boho-minimalist space: less color plus less stuff gives maximum visual impact. Think about the items you're adding into your room and make sure each piece serves an important purpose. 

White or neutral floors are the perfect canvas for any type of decor. In a boho-minimalist decor space, anything you add to it instantly becomes a focal point—consider going for velvet or patterned rugs to help introduce color to your home. 

Rattan is a must-have in any boho-minimalist space—all you need is one eye-catching piece and it can already make the room seem a lot more put-together. Pair it with wooden elements and nature-inspired pieces for a tropical feel.

More often than not, Bohemian-inspired pieces tend to be big, bulky and intricate. To balance out these characteristics, keep the rest of the fixtures basic. Try looking for rustic-industrial items—lots of wood and steel elements—as these complement Boho decor best.

For a display that is simple yet complex, don't be afraid to layer accessories—start with a statement couch followed by smaller pieces that add shape (try a round table, baskets or tall lamps) or texture (try a faux fur rug or printed pillows). You may also want to stick to a variety of cooler tones like blue and green to maintain a calming vibe.
