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.

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.

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.
