Strictly contemporary or modern living room design, or completely rustic urban design, may not necessarily suit you. If you are free-spirited, have much love for people and culture, have a tendency towards arts and crafts, or are artistic, Bohemian style may be right for you.
How does a Boho-styled living room interior look like?
Here are just some examples that may inspire you to create your one-of-the-kind living room.
1. Traditional Fabrics with Bright Colors & Cultural Motives
Boho-styled interior is characterized by the application of traditional woven or pleated fabrics with a display of bright colors and cultural motives. Add either geometric designs, ancient figures, hieroglyphs, even caligraphies representing the culture and tradition of some parts of the world.
These design features are typically embodied in pillowcases, table cloth, curtains, wall arts, rugs, blankets, and so on.
2. Ethnic or Cultural Décor & Ornaments
The interior of a Boho-styled living room is often decorated with various ethnic or cultural wall decorations and ornamental displays. Perhaps you may see an Indian headdress on one wall, a painting of a Turkish dervish on the other, oboe at one corner, and some woven baskets at the other.
You can also put replicas of Incan artifacts on the shelf, a large piece of Macrame, or simply Batik to fill up another side of the wall. A bronze, Persian-influenced chandelier on the center ceiling or some gorgeous Chinese lanterns at the far is also a good idea.
3. Accents of animal skin and fur
Some Boho-styled living rooms feature large or small pieces of rugs made of animal skin or fur. Occasionally, you may also see them on any of the walls in the room’s interior.
Other than the skin or fur, animal’s head’s skeleton, such a deer’s head often decorates Boho-styled living room interior as well.
4. Repurposing objects as furniture
Have a trunk or treasure chest as a coffee table, a vintage suitcase as storage, a huge piece of traditional fabric as an indoor hammock, and others. These are just some examples of how objects can be used as unique furniture to ‘spice up’ the interior of your living room.
Now that you have had the basic knowledge, are you ready to create your own Boho-styled living room interior?
