Mix patterns that have the same color palette
The Bohemian style allows you to use different patterns and textures with the same color palette. If you want to work with a violet shade, choose tribal designs or geometric patterns that are in Lilac, Amethyst and Indigo.
RL Tip: Add hints of gold accessories and finish it up with a floaty silk pendant lamp to make it look like a snug Bedouin tent.
Use natural surfaces.
Start with a backdrop that’s raw and unfinished, such as brick, metal, wood with a distressed surface. Add contemporary but edgy furniture in smooth leather or woven hemp. The boho touch here comes out in the soft furnishings and accessories—in this case, rugs, an ikat-print runner used as a throw, and Inca-style pillows.
Decorate using your travel memorabilia
Showcase your personality by displaying travel mementos in your room. The Bohemian design allows you to use your travel art—such as geometric pillows and Indian quilts, as important must-haves.
Utilize warm lighting
This style adds a cozy yet carefree vibe to any room. To achieve a comfortable room, choose warm white light bulbs to help set the mood in living areas and bedrooms. Learn more about lighting materials.
