If you look up the word bohemian in the dictionary you will come across words such as wanderer, free spirit, unorthodox…For me, this trend is all about embracing an eclectic mix of textiles, artefacts and furniture from different corners of the globe.
Wall hangings, sculptures and crystals add a sense of exoticism and wanderlust to any room.
Blur the line between the interior and exterior by sourcing natural materials for furniture–such as teak wood or stone. Nature and bohemianism go hand in hand!
Blend designs and textiles from around the world. My personal favourites are Aztec-inspired patterns, Moroccan leather pouffes and Kilim cushions. These pieces all evoke a sense of exploration and adventure.
For lighting, your options are endless. Beaded chandeliers and rattan shades are a nod to tribal handicrafts while brass lanterns pay homage to the Middle East.
Remember there are no real rules when it comes to creating a bohemian aesthetic. Don’t over analyse or be too concerned with matching things perfectly. Part of the beauty is the free reign that you have to experiment with a melting pot of styles, colours and patterns.
