The décor-freak in you, who just doesn’t appreciate being shackled and bound by daunting interior styles, can breathe easy now. The one style of interior decoration that truly recognises your wild and free-spirit is Bohemian.
If you’re not the one to follow, go Boho. Boho interiors celebrate versatility and diversity, they speak of a cultural mix through the colours and decorative items presented in the interiors. The interiors tell stories of the places you’ve been to, places you aspire to go- it is a big display of travel memorabilia. The distinct style of interiors inspires happiness and life. Let the ‘gypsy’ in you out and design your homes with this unconventional yet artistic fashion. Let us see what makes your home ‘Boho-Chic’.
Bohemian interiors are all about liberal décor colours that blend in smoothly with each other, even though they are diversified. These interiors are based on the Jungian philosophy of chaos leading to order. The chaotic style, being vibrant and in shades that contrast each other, when put together makes sense and achieves ethereal beauty.
Warm earthy colours like tan, terracotta, orange, yellow etc. shine through Boho interiors with a smattering of pink, turquoise and teal throughout.
You have to think like Phoebe from F.R.I.E.N.D.S., your furniture should have a story behind them. Vintage inspired furniture that speaks of the bygone days, are welcome. Shabby, second-hand furniture and fabrics rich in artwork and designs are often spotted in bohemian interiors. Boho designs are all about upholstered furniture and rustic wood pieces, left purposefully au naturel, to create a lived-in antiquated feature.
