Your space should be just as beautiful and carefree as you are. Keep that wanderlust (temporarily) in check by creating a gorgeous, relaxing, environment around you.
You probably know that Team Sivalya is all about the Bohemian lifestyle and we are constantly thinking of new ways to improve every aspect of yours and our Bohemian lives (Recently, we expanded to include Bohemian clothing and home decor as well!) We’re obsessed with Bohemian home decor right now and here are a few of our favorite tips for bringing Bohemian home.
1. Add plants
As any flower child knows, plants are a key ingredient in creating the Bohemian look at home. Bring a slice of nature indoors and make your surroundings beautiful and natural.
2. Twinkle, Twinkle
Twinkle lights add a light, playful feeling that is perfect for the carefree, Bohemian vibe. Bonus: they can also add a little romance to your space when that special someone comes over.
3. Texture, texture, texture
Give your space some depth and warmth by varying textures. Use different types of material, mix metals, add a mirrored surface. Light reflects off each of these differently, creating a complex, textured look.
4. Creative, low seating
Nothing adds a Bohemian feel faster than a few pillows and blankets or ottomans for seating. There’s something about low seating that makes people want to gather and enjoy each other’s company.
5. Light wood and walls
The one thing most Bohemian style rooms have in common is light colored wood furniture and light colored walls. The stuffiness of dark walls and dark wood furniture does not generally fit the Bohemian look. White or other light colors allow the room to look brighter and more open.
6. Bright colors
Adding bright colors gives a cheerful, free-spirited vibe to the room that is wonderfully Bohemian.
7. Incorporate imports
International flair totally gives off a Boho vibe. Whether its a Mexican blanket, Tibetan prayer flags, or statues of non-Christian deities like Buddha or Ganesha, paying homage to other cultures through decor gives it a gypsy/Bohemian feel. Bonus points if you collect these items on your own world travels!
It’s really easy to create a Bohemian vibe at home, if you follow these simple steps! Make your home reflect who you are and add a little Boho to your life. Your home will feel like a sanctuary.
