Trend Watch: Bohemian Chic
Posted on 10 August 2014
It's about breaking the rules, designing outside the box and displaying your treasures.
Bohemian or Boho style is for the whimsical, eclectic dreamers among us. Bohemian interior design allows you to be messy and unruly, but with flare and elegance. It’s a fine line!
Take to your room with lace, shells, driftwood, jewellery and trinkets; anything from nature and anything from your travels. The goal is to make your room reflect your spontaneity. Not everything will have its place and not everything will be planned – but make it look effortless.
White on white is fantastic for Boho, think white painted timber floorboards, a few fairy lights as a canopy above your bed and some plush furry throws over the end of a vintage couch.
Anything you’ve collected throughout your life, display it! It doesn’t matter if it doesn’t match anything, it’s not supposed to! Fill your space with fabrics and patterns, books, old art, mirrors vintage pieces or travel memoirs. Wooden furnishings are a must, random and busy surfaces are typical and most things come from outside of the design box!
Try Boho-coastal, Boho-Moroccan, Boho-traditional or Boho-organic. The options are endless!
Don’t be afraid to break the rules! Let your inner wandering gypsy out!
