Creating a Bohemian Inspired Interior

When creating a bohemian interior design for your space, it’s important to avoid going overboard, so your room doesn’t look cheesy, and to remember a few guiding principles that will allow you to create your perfect boho-chic heavenly oasis, styled solely by you.

When it comes to pairing contrasting textures and styles, normally it’s a no-go, but for this specific style, it’s a must. By pairing things such as a modern styled dining chair, with a fuzzy accent pillow, or a bold, glam themed bed with a classically elegant nightstand, true bohemian interior design aesthetics are sure to come out.

1. Opposites attract

Pairing contrasting styled pieces like a bold and modern bed frame with a classical themed end table or nightstand can create a visually appealing aesthetic for your room.

2. Combine neutrals with deep color shades

By choosing a neutral themed staple piece, creating a visually appealing, contrasting vibe for your overall space is simple when choosing a darker color scheme.

3. Mix and match different sizes, textures and patterns

Layer various sized rugs and pillows that showcase differentiating textures and patterns to really make your design shine through. This will also add visually puzzling detail that will bring your space to life. You can also take a look at this blog post for more inspiration!

4. Include shiny or reflective surfaces

You can’t complete this style without a little glam. Add items that feature mirrored detailing or metallic accents that will perfectly tie your theme together.

5. Earthy textures meet mixed metals

When choosing lighting fixtures, such as a simply designed wicker chandelier or accessory, adds just the right amount of natural tones and textures to really make the metal accents in the room stand out.
