The Bohemian trend began in 19th-century France and is named after the nomad artists who valued creativity over material wealth. As such, this art style is characterized by elements that invoke relaxation and carefreeness.
If you want to make your space feel relaxing and carefree, understanding Bohemian elements can be useful to you.
Elements of Bohemian Style
The idea behind Bohemian design
is that it is for your personal enjoyment. You don’t need regard for structure or your preconceived notions of what is right in design. Go for what fits your personality.
Cheap pieces you would find at a flea market or vintage boutique are wonderful for this kind of decor. You can really play with materials and textures, such as wicker, wood, brass, iron, and more. Handmade quilts, rugs, sculptures, and pottery call back to this style’s artistic roots. Plants, lanterns, and plush furniture also invoke a Bohemian look.
Distinct geometric and artsy patterns can add focal points and some nice contrast to your design. For a really carefree look, try juxtaposing patterns that might not conventionally look good together in other designs. This can make your space look fun!
Because you don’t have to follow the rules, you don’t need to follow a specific color theme. However, combining neutral tones such as tan with gem colors like green, blue, and pink can look really good, especially in patterns.
