The boho style cannot do without a mix of styles and colors

Mixes of styles and Vintage furniture are just as common as accents in bright colors. The basis should always be earthy tones such as brown, beige or olive, then you build on this with accessories in turquoise, bordeaux or even lavender.

Decoration is very important in the boho style. Cushions and blankets with fringes, colorful wall accessories or figures with depictions of animals are a great choices, which adapt to the otherwise rather calm environment.

Shrill and colorful meets natural and grounded

Patterns in particular can be wonderfully integrated in the boho style. For example ethnic patterns, patchwork pieces or batik are very suitable, but also folkloric and oriental patterns find their place in the boho style.

The boho style lives from its variety of materials. Basically, you should use natural materials such as wood, leather, rats or linen. Dried flowers and feathers are also suitable, for example in organically shaped vases.

Conclusion: If you are attracted by the unconventional and if you feel comfortable in a round, diverse environment, you should take a closer look at the boho style. But it doesn't always have to be all or not at all: Individual boho pieces can also be wonderfully integrated into others
furnishing styles.

Set up a room step by step in boho style:

  1. Create a base that exudes calm. Use as light and natural colors as possible, such as a white couch or a beige wall color.
  2. Use a lot of textiles with which you can integrate colors and patterns into the room. Many pillows on the sofa, blankets with fringes or even a tapestry in an ethnic pattern are well suited for this.
  3. Use natural materials! So work with wooden furniture, linen pillow cases or raffia baskets.
  4. Bring old pieces into the room too. For example, a vintage chest of drawers from the antique shop or a rattan armchair from the flea market fits perfectly.
  5. Don't make it too perfect, because the restlessness makes Boho really cozy.
