What is the inspiration behind the boho style?

Boho picture

The boho style is often inspired by nature and different cultures from around the world. So if you’re looking for some inspiration, start by thinking about what you love.

Do you have a favorite country or culture that you would like to incorporate into your design? Or maybe there are certain colors or patterns that you are drawn to.

Specific pieces

Once you have a general idea of what you want, you can start to look for specific pieces that will help you create the perfect boho living room on a budget!

If you’re still not sure where to start, there are plenty of resources available online and in magazines that can give you some great ideas.

Pinterest is a great place to begin your hunt for some visual inspiration. And there are also a number of blogs and websites dedicated to boho style, which can be a great resource if you’re looking for more specific ideas.

Colors and textures in boho design

When it comes to choosing colors and textures for your boho living room, there are no hard and fast rules. But there are a few things to keep in mind that will help you create the perfect space.

First, consider the overall vibe you want to create. Do you want a space that is bright and airy? Or do you prefer a more cozy and intimate feel?

Mixing and matching materials

Once you have a general idea of the vibe you’re going for, you can start to think about specific colors and textures. Boho style is all about mixing and matching, so don’t be afraid to experiment with different combinations.

Green wall colors

Some of our favorite boho color schemes include earthy tones like burgundy and olive green or bright and cheerful colors like yellow and turquoise.

As far as textures go, think about incorporating different fabrics, woods, and even metals into your design.

One of the most important aspects of any boho is all about mixing and matching different textures, colors, and patterns.

One of the best ways to do this is by incorporating lots of different throw pillows and throws into your design. Shop the Look.

Boho style is also about being unique and personalizing your space – so don’t be afraid to mix and match different pieces that you love.

A great way to bring color into your boho living room is by incorporating wall art. Pick something soothing and free-spirited when choosing your wall art. I wouldn’t advise something like Munch’s Scream art. Shop the Look

Boho wall art

If you really don’t want to invest in art, make your own. Your local dollar shop sells plenty of different arts and crafts materials and canvasses. Alternatively, frame posters and prints and make a gallery wall.

Throws for sofas are another way of layering up textures and colors and a way of decorating your boho living room. They can be an accent color or a mix of different tones and patterns.

Texture and patterned rug

Style and color will all depend on your flooring and color scheme for your boho living room. This particular rug will work on most wood flooring, but if you already have a patterned carpet, I would pick something a little less busy.

I have gone for a tribal patterned rug with ivory, neutral, and grey tones to add some pattern to the floor. Shop the Look.

And finally, remember that less is more when it comes to boho interior design. So don’t go overboard with the accessories and make sure everything has a purpose.

Boho living room furniture

When it comes to choosing furniture for your boho living room ideas, there are a few things to keep in mind.

First, think about the overall scale of the space. Boho living rooms often have a more relaxed and laid-back feel, so you’ll want to choose furniture that is comfortable and inviting.

Second, consider the different functions of the space. Will you be using it for entertaining guests? Or is it more of a cozy family space? Shop the Look

And remember, less is more when it comes to a boho look – so choose a few key pieces that will make a statement without overwhelming the space.

Add a table or two

No living room can be without a side table or two. Choose something simple, wicker, rattan, or wood for your bohemian living room.

If this doesn’t suit your space, purchase a larger coffee table, as we all need somewhere to put our coffee or tea.

Light up your boho living room ideas

One of the most important aspects of any boho living room is the lighting. Boho style is all about creating a warm and inviting space, so you’ll want to choose lighting that is both functional and stylish.

When it comes to choosing light fixtures, there are a few things to keep in mind.

First, consider the overall scale of the space. Boho living rooms often have high ceilings, so you’ll want to choose light fixtures that are proportionate to the size of the room. Shop the Look

Get growing and go green.

What is a boho living room without plants? Prime the green fingers and fill your room with as many plants as you want, it is very in keeping with the modern boho look.

Hang your plants from the ceilings in macrame wall hangers to make a boho space. Macrame is very popular in boho living room interior design ideas.

What is macrame?

Macrame is a form of textile-making that uses knotting techniques to create patterns and designs. It originated in 13th century Arabia and spread to Europe in the 14th century.

Macrame became popular in the United States in the 1960s and 1970s when it was used to make things like plant hangers and wall hangings.

Back by popular demand

Today, macrame is enjoying a resurgence in popularity and is used to make a variety of different home decor items.

What do I need to make a macrame plant hanger?

If you’re interested in trying your hand at macrame, there are a few things you’ll need to get started.

First, you’ll need some macrame cord. This can be made from a variety of different materials, including cotton, hemp, and jute.

Second, you’ll need a pair of scissors. And finally, you’ll need a tapestry needle. This is a large-eye needle that is used to thread the macrame cord through the knots.

Supplies and patience

With a few supplies and a little bit of patience, you can create beautiful macrame plant hangers to add a touch of bohemian style to your home.

Check out YouTube for macrame lessons or Google, as you will find plenty of websites that will take you through the art of macrame. You never know you may even get hooked. Excuse the pun.

I found this site which seems to give you a good explanation of how to get started with some basic knots.

Can we fake it?

Alternatively, add some pampas grass to soften the look in the living room, or purchase artificial plants and trees, they only need dust down.
