You don't have to go traveling around the world in search of Moroccan lamps and cushions, Persian rugs, and quirky souvenirs to be able to achieve a Bohemian-inspired outdoor space. This laid-back, effortless look highlights mixing and layering the right pieces to create the cozy, rustic feel. It's a style that you can work on whether you have a lanai or a balcony, and with any budget at that—you just need to have a carefree attitude and creativity. Get ready to create your own snug outdoor escape with these easy tips: 

Invest in comfy seating

The Bohemian lifestyle is free and relaxed so this isn’t the place for rigid furniture. Whether you’re putting in a bench, outdoor seating set or chairs, you have to make it comfy. Add in some floor cushions and poufs and throw in three or more pillows. You should be able to enter your outdoor sanctuary and lounge your stresses away—the more cushioning, the better.

Shop for comfy pillows and poufs at Mandaue Foam.

Practice layering

One thing about this laid-back look is how effortless it feels. It always looks like things were just thrown together. You can achieve this by layering in your design details. Put in an area rug or even two, drape a number of throws on your seating, and add in some accessories. Don’t think too much about balance and simply create a spot where you can spend hours relaxing.

Grow some greenery

Nothing is more relaxing than the sight of nature. Invite greenery into your outdoor space by adding a few potted plants or a whole jungle of different flora and fauna. Doing so creates a calming environment while helping improve the air you breathe.

Play with lighting

Appropriate mood lighting is crucial to achieving that Bohemian refuge. Keep in mind that it’s not just about adding one statement light piece. Similar to adding layers of accessories in the space, you should also layer your lighting to set the mood. You can add a somber lamp, hang up twinkle lights, and light a few candles and lanterns to create an impact.
