The original Bohemians were refugees from central Europe, “gypsies” that set off a fashion trend in the early years of the 21st century, known as the “boho-chic”. Of course, interior design follows fashion trends and the Bohemian style eventually found it’s way into home décor where it continues to trend today.
If you read up on the history of the style you will realize it was actually a melting together of many cultures that created the influences you see today.
Bohemian – “boho-chic” in Today’s World
Start with a Calm Palette
The white room is the perfect palette to offset the bright style. You can see by accessorizing with the gypsy accents you can easily achieve the look. Texture can be added by layering in other accents until you achieve the desired vibe.
Create a Personal Space
I find it the perfect style for a reflection of self. I have always been a firm believer in creating a small intimate place where you can go to spend time alone surrounded by things that simply make you feel good. Bohemian style is just a mix of colors, textures and you!
The great thing about Bohemian décor is it goes eclectically with all architectural styles. I love this house, located in the Balearic Islands in Spain. The architecture is Mediterranean mixed with Bohemian style, which marries together perfectly. The bright pops of color create a cozy feel to this home.
Create the Look with Textures
There are no rules when it comes to this type of décor. Sometimes Bohemian style is brought about with subtle textures and not a lot of colored accents. The lack of rules is what the Bohemian style is all about!
