How to Add a Bohemian Feel to Your Home

Friday 22 January 2016


Adding a bohemian feel to the home is something spiritual people love to do. You don’t even need to be spiritual to do it; it can add a magical, cosy feel to the home with plenty of texture and colour. This how to guide will tell you all you need to know:

Mix and Match Patterns and Colour

The great thing about the bohemian look is that there are no hard and fast rules in the home. You can mix patterns and colours to your heart’s content to create a look that you really love!

However, you don’t want your patterns to be too in your face; many of the patterns used in bohemian decor are paisley and similar styles. The colours mixed are usually fairly deep, such as rich purple, mustard, navy blue, maroon, purple, and so on.

Again, there are no rules, so if you did want a pink bohemian room, you could create it!

Keep Colours in the Same Family

Whatever colours you choose to use, make sure you keep them in the same family. For instance, you shouldn’t use fluorescent, brights, and pastels all at the same time. You need to pick one family and go with it. I’d say rich colours are the most effective at creating a cosy little bohemian space.

Use Canopies

Canopies over the bed area look amazing and add a magical touch to your room. You can even make your own if you’re feeling crafty! Add some fairy lights too and your bed will look ridiculously inviting come night time. You don’t need to limit it to the bedroom either; having a canopy in any room can make a great escape or reading corner.

Add Unique Furniture

Unique furniture is what the bohemian look is all about. Luckily, there are stores that specialise in this kind of furniture specifically. Ian Snow is one place you can find bohemian treasures and even vintage finds. Do your research and look far and wide; you’ll find some seriously unique treasures!

Collect Crystals and Stones

Crystals and stones add a magical, almost ethereal feel to the home. Large quartz crystals and even smaller stones can all make a great display. Plus, if you’re into meditating and things like that, they are said to be great!

Incorporate a Dream Catcher and Similar Items

Dream catchers and similar items including features and other bits can make the world of difference to your home. You can hang them from the ceiling or wall, wherever you prefer.

Have Candles and Incense

Candles and incense are a big part of the bohemian culture. They are insanely relaxing, so they make a great addition to the living room, bedroom, and bathroom. Just make sure you never leave them unattended.
